Depression can be paralyzing, or it can be like dragging an unnecessary weight around. You may be isolating, less social, low energy, & pessimistic. Fear not, there is help available! Talking to a trained, licensed professional will help. He or she will ask you questions, get to know you, and then help you acquire realistic, practical tools to beat depression, and be happy again. Maybe even happier that ever. A good therapist is trained in active listening to get to know you like other people typically don't. This is a necessary prerequisite to guide you to a better place, and help keep you there. Don't be alone in your struggle to feel better. Talk to someone that can help!

Sometimes it feels like the storm will never pass. You do not have to wait for life to happen to you, it is possible to create positivity for yourself and to feel good again. It starts with appreciating the small "joys" in life and working up to feeling "happy". You have done it before and you know what joy feels like, you can do it again. Let's get started on your way back to truly living your life by making the thoughtful decision to be a participant in your future.

My approach to depression depends greatly on the presenting problem as people become depressed for a variety of situations (anxiety, stress, existential/meaning, grief ). After assessing & evaluating a course of treatment with the client, treatment may involve cognitive behavioral therapy, relaxation techniques, Logotherapy to explore life's meaning, or perhaps an exploration of spiritual depression. Of course, if the depression is judged to be major depression referral to a physician's for medical intervention may be explored.

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.
