Depression can occur because of a number of different reasons, including but not limited to: loss of a loved one, a move or new job, a growing family, or conflict within the important relationships in your life. I will help you understand the roots of what might be going on for you, and design a treatment plan specifically suited to meet your needs. You don't have to suffer from depression, it is very treatable! I offer home-based therapy, or the more traditional office setting.

Depression is a boulder sized burden a person is forced to carry wherever he or she goes. It is not so unlike the mythological person, Sisyphus, who is forever cursed to push a boulder up hill. In working with clients, I believe it is important to address the nature of the boulder size burdens that insist on being one’s constant companion. In understanding their nature, it becomes possible to set the boulder aside allowing for a clearer vision of what lies ahead and a lighter step, with more energy to move on. However, depression, unlike a boulder, is not content to be set aside. It wants to be carried. Therefore, it takes dedication and creative direction to outwit its needy grasp.

Depression can be one of the most powerful and resistant mood issues as far as impact to one's life. A common symptom is low motivation meaning you have to put extreme effort into doing things, and this includes seeking help. To me, depression has a chicken-or-egg origin. Do lifestyle and thoughts change the chemical balance in the brain or does a chemical imbalance in the brain contribute to a depressed lifestyle and thought pattern. This circular dilemma is one of the things that makes depression so tough. I will work with you to find solutions towards recovery from depression. I do in-office and online counseling. You can self-register and self-schedule at mnonlinecounseling.com.
North Woods Christian Counseling
White Bear Lake, MN
Depression can be like a bully, pushing us down and keeping us from moving forward. Thankfully, it can get better with therapy. Our therapists frequently work with depression, and have a wide range of strategies to help you get back on your feet. However, we look to do far more than simply "manage" depression, we want to heal it at its source. Sometimes depression is situational, a natural response to difficult life circumstances. But often, unhealed wounds from the past contribute to make it even worse. We can provide you with practical tools you need to heal, one day at a time, and also help you work through any deeper issues so that the healing is stronger and more lasting.

Depression is a common issue which can range from mild changes in mood to an inability to even get out of bed in the morning. We can offer hope to those struggling with feelings of despair and a lack of motivation or enjoyment in daily activities. Talking through the feelings and discovering the mistaken core beliefs that keep someone stuck, can create freedom from the feeling of hopelessness. Therapy can help with all depression symptoms from insomnia to excessive sleeping, and changes in appetite to suicidal thoughts.

Those who have never been depressed likely do not have much understanding of what you are going through. Getting up in the morning is likely hard for you and those things that used to be easy are suddenly hard. You're depressed and you want hope more than anything. I will help you understand not only why you are depressed but provide you a path to that place where life is once again enjoyable. I will assist you in understanding the neurophysiological underpinnings of your depression and how tightly that is connected with your thinking, your behaviors, and certainly your relationships to other people. I will give you a step-by-step approach in removing the pain and returning to joy.

Sometimes when people are depressed, the last thing that they want to do is find the energy to meet a new therapist. I understand that and will try to make the process as painless as possible. I can even consult with your previous therapist so that you do not feel like you have to start all over. In addition to using cognitive behavior therapy, I tend to use mindfulness and acceptance approaches with depression. My intention is to help you identity goals that you truly care about, as opposed to goals that other people think you should be working on. I want to help you feel happier and more transparent with who you are.
