With depression I often find that people have reason to be depressed yet seek to get on with their lives too soon. So I help them to "honor" their depression. At the same time, I do not believe it helpful to wait until the depression is over before coaching a client back to living a satisfying life. My approach in the long run is to help the client return to a satisfying life so that the depression will disappear. Also, with mild depression, physical exercise is often very helpful; it produces endorphins. Exercise with a partner is especially helpful.

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.

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.

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.

At Lepage Associates, we recognize there are many contributing factors to depression. In your first session, we gather information about what may have contributed to the depression you are experiencing. For example, you may be involved in a relationship either currently or in the past that has affected your mood, you may have recently experienced a significant loss like a death or loss of a job, or you may be experiencing low self-esteem or other life stressors. Sometimes biology also plays a role and depression is caused by neurochemical imbalance. After determining what is contributing to the depression, we work with you to develop strategies to increase positive mood. Examples include developi....

Some people put off going to therapy for depression because they assume all the therapist will do is just listen (or they have already had a therapist you did just that!). While it is helpful to have someone to be able to talk to about what is bothering you, I am trained to listen for what may be maintaining your depression and will give you tools for you to be able to decrease your depression, with some finding relief within a few sessions. My approach to working with depression involves focusing on the interaction of the body and mind, changing thoughts that are contributing to depression, and exploring how your interactions with others may be affecting your mood.
