When you feel depressed, you want a counselor who can truly understand you. I've been depressed, too, and I know first-hand how it feels: the sense of loss, the loneliness, the darkness, the fatigue, the low self-esteem. It can happen to the best of us. I'll help you find a source of deep strength inside yourself. I'll help you develop more spiritual intimacy and find the peace that passes all understanding. I'll help you find your Authentic Self, your spirit, that part of you who is always connected to God. I'll help you shine, and feel unconditionally loved. I call that grace, and it is yours for the asking. I'll show you how to receive it. You are worth it!

Depression is a symptom that could result from a number of factors: brain chemistry, diet, exercise, trauma wounds, hidden anger, failing relationships, family tension, burnout, boredom, and others. It could also possibly be the threshold to a new stage of growth and healing. I work alongside clients to explore these possibilities, and find avenues to real healing.

"It's hard for you to look up when you look down." Kirk Franklin I realize how challenging it can be to get to treatment and even out of bed. I work with clients to help challenge those negative self defeating thoughts and identify ways to improve functioning and mood. I work with individuals to help change those feelings from powerless to powerful.

Depression can rob you of joy, peace, energy, health, and even relationships. It can leave you not wanting to get out of bed in the morning and not enjoying pleasurable activities you have enjoyed in the past. If you have suffered under depression for many years, you may not even be aware that you are depressed, because you are so used to it. Depression may seem like a usual condition to you. By addressing the underlying causes with a professional, you can progress and move forward to a place that is less heavy feeling, more hopeful, and more full of life.

James Colvin, M.Div., LMFT
Psychotherapist, Marriage & Family Therapist
16 Arlington St., Asheville, North Carolina 28801
Depression is common in our culture. The two basic approaches I use are to identify the source and go back with the client to help heal the wounds that may have fostered the depression and, if warranted, to seek medication to lessen the symptoms. Body work can be very helpful in treating depress--identifying where it may be located and finding ways to release the cellular memory.
Amanda Gilliam, M.S.
Licensed Marital & Family Therapist
Depression is a common but serious condition that is highly treatable. Depression can make everyday activities seem unbearable, things that used to be enjoyable lose value, and comfort may seem difficult to find. Depression can often interfere with relationships and responsibilities if left untreated. There is hope for regaining your love for life, happiness, and comfort. You are capable of growth and worthy of happiness.
