First of all, my approach to therapy for depression involves exploring the life stressors that have brought on and maintained your depression. These can be from the past or present. Included in this we identify thought processes that accompany these. Through a variety of treatments such as finding ways to change your thinking and behavior you will feel more empowered and more fully self-aware. We will also pinpoint key themes which are causing the stress and which influence your thoughts and feelings about yourself and others. By being aware of these images you will understand where you are vulnerable and then we work together to strengthen those areas.

Depression varies from person to person but there are common signs and symptoms. If you are feeling overwhelmed, have a loss of energy, feel hopeless, have anger and irritability you could be suffering from depression. The most important thing to do to overcome depression is ask for help. Bridgette understands this can be difficult to do so she strives to offer each client an empathic ear and offer solutions to help them step out of their depression and regain their love for life.

Depression can sap you of your energy and ability to enjoy life. I help individuals find solutions by utilizing their areas of strength rather than focusing on weaknesses. We will also explore thinking and behavioral habits that support health so that you can reengage in the present and have a hopeful vision of the future.

Depression can range from mild to severe. Depression can be a result of many factors or a combination of factors. It is important to first understand the severity of the depression and take the necessary steps to insure the safety of the client. Depression can be a symptom that says something is going on in your life that needs to be addressed. I believe that treating the symptom without addressing the underlying issue does a disservice to the client.

Did you know that the number of people who suffer with depression is similar to the number of people who suffer from seasonal allergies? I bet that is a surprise to you, since we don't hear people talking about depression like they talk about their allergies. People who suffer with depression are not only dealing with the depression but they are often doing it alone. Let us walk with you in this process so that you are not alone. We use a variety of techniques and when necessary, work collaboratively with psychiatrists to proscribe medication. Depression can feel like a heavy blanket - of crying, sadness, lack of motivation, apathy. Let us help you throw off the blanket and start thriving!

Depression is more than feeling sad. Depression can hit at various times and for many reasons. When you are not able to "snap out" of feeling down, no matter what may be happening around you, it is likely time to contact a counselor. Not opposed to medication, but a proponent of getting to the root of the problem, I advocate for therapy as a first step, and depending on the level of depression, we will discuss the pros and cons of exploring alternate routes. Renewed peace and joy is always my goal with clients. Countless have attested to feeling like "themselves" once they made the difficult, but rewarding decision to connect with a Licensed Professional.
