Every body faces difficult times in their lives. When those times cause acute stress, there can be serious depression that sets in on an individual. There is situational depression and then there is clinical depression. The client will benefit from a knowledge and experiential understanding of how to apply Biblical principles to their depression.

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.

Beaumont Counseling Services views Depression in a somewhat different way than others in the field. It is our view that Depression has many similarities to addiction; where the brain seems to be "addicted" to being sad and/or negative. In this approach, clients benefit from learning new strategies of thinking that will serve as a substitute, and eventually a replacement, for their current maladaptive, depressed way of thinking. A systematic strategy is used to promote positive thoughts and overcome learned helplessness.
