Depression is downward spiral, where our natural reactions to feeling tired and sad lead to depressive behaviors of, isolation, distraction, and avoidance of what really to us. This leads to more time thinking and less doing the things that give us energy and meaning...which lead to feeling tired, sad and stuck. Making contact with what reallyatters is the key to treating depression.

Depression and anxiety are common mood instability problems rooted in childhood issues. If we feel secure and our feelings are taken into account by our parents, we grow up having a ballast that rights our boat when we encounter the storms of life. But many children were ignored by busy parents or parents filled with their own strife and did not receive the love that was necessary to feel that "tomorrow will be a brighter day." Because of these problems, our moods fluctuate and now our adulthood is diminished. Therapy can help you develop a new center that is not forever dependent on medications regardless of your genetic disposition. You can feel secure in the world and relationships!
