Most people, at some point in their lives, experience depression. Our lives become overwhelming to the point that even simple, every day tasks seem difficult to overcome. Counseling provides an outlet for people to express their hurts and pain, allows them to gain insight to where their particular cycle of depression stems from and helps them find a light and hope in an otherwise dark world.

One of the most common reasons that people enter counseling is the experience of depression. Depression is much more common than what people know. I will help you understand the nature of your depression, what the possible causes are, and a variety of approaches that my clients have found helpful over the years. Whether your depression is recent or persistent, there are specific treatment methods that work for many people. I am also more than happy to work with other healthcare providers to make sure that you benefit from a comprehensive approach. Working with me or with a team can help to maximize your ability to get symptom relief and help you lead a happier and fulfilling life.

Many of us struggle with periods of depression. We may experience a lack of interest in activities that we once enjoyed participating in, have a lack of appetite or sleep or increased appetite or sleep, lack of energy, experience poor concentration, restlessness, irritability, and hopelessness. This is not all bad if these symptoms do not linger on for long periods of time. However, if these periods of sadness last longer than two weeks one is depressed and this is the time when seeking counseling will be helpful. I help individuals discovers the triggers that cause their depression and teach them healthy coping skills to reduce their symptoms. I help individuals work towards empowerment.

In working with depression I offer ways for you to understand the depression and the contributing factors. Together we identify those life factors that have caused the depression and find healthy ways to resolve it. We then reconstruct the thinking, attributes and behaviors associated with the depression. The purpose of this is to have you gain a sense of balance and control in your own life. We then create manageable coping skills that will allow you to identify the triggers and have a working plan to cope with the depression.

My approach to helping those struggling with depression is to offer a supportive environment of acceptance where one feels free to share their pain. I primarily use a Cognitive/Behavioral approach. In this approach I work with my clients to help them learn how to increase activities that have given them joy, such as calling a love one on the phone, going on a walk or bike ride in nature and decrease activities that make depression worse such as substance use or watching too much TV. I also collaborate with my clients to help them identify and challenge their automatic negative thoughts about themselves, and replace those negative thoughts with positive and adaptive thoughts and beliefs.

Healing from past wounds, identifying false beliefs developed from childhood/life experiences, and working through the accompanying grief/loss will be the key to finding healing and freedom from depression and discouragement. As we do this, we will also work to replace these hurts and wounds with the truths about who the person was created to be, so that the client finds contentment and joy once again, sometimes despite the circumstances.
