Depression has many faces and many origins. It can be caused by life circumstances, or it can be caused by genetics. Sometimes medication is needed for the long term, sometimes for only a short term and sometimes not at all. If you're willing to talk with a professional, I can help you deal with the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness that may be part of your depression. If your symptoms are more like rapid mood swings, you may have Bipolar Disorder. I welcome the opportunity to help you and your family and friends understand the uniqueness of this Disorder.

I work with people that are depressed or think they are, by evaluating, educating, and talk therapy in group and individual therapies. Further, I work with the client and there doctor to determine whether medications would be helpful as a short or long term part of the treatment. It is important for everyone to know that we all are occasionally subject to depression, but if it lasts more than 10-14 days you should your doctor. There are a number of simple online depression tests that can give you some indication of the severity.

The biggest problem with clients dealing with depression is the fact that most of the world (including most clinicians) looks at them like a diagnosis, a label, as broken or in need of fixing, and mentally ill. Depressed clients who work with me most often benefit from the "AHA" moment when they realize that somewhere, somehow, and given their situation and context, their mood and feelings makes sense. I help put things into perspective for clients, and give them a different way of seeing themselves and the world so that the true healing process may occur.
