Symptoms of depression can sometimes be devastating and cause an inability to function and at other times can be mild but chronic. Depression counseling with me involves talk therapy along with mind/body therapy that helps release whatever stuck patterns and negative beliefs that may be contributing to the low self-esteem, lack of motivation and energy, hopelessness, isolation, sleeping and eating problems. Using a holistic approach, it can be important to look at biological, psychological and social/external factors that may be causing the depression and make sure that each area is addressed. Depression may also be accompanied by anxiety and I have extensive experience treating both issues.

Every person has times of sadness and discouragement, however if these feelings persist for long periods of time depression may result. Depression is like a weight that slows a person down and makes everything seem more difficult and strenuous. Depression can affect a person's ability to work, make decisions, focus, concentrate, sleep, eat and socialize. I have found that A key factor in effectively treating depression is motivation.

Understanding that there are different types of depression, different levels of severity, and various causes, I work with each individual to assess what kind of depression they are experiencing and possible causes. Often anxiety and depression occur together. Along with providing a safe, non-judgmental place and therapeutic relationship for people to talk about their depressive feelings/emotions and experience, I also utilize research-based therapies that have proven effective for treating depression and anxiety.

Depression can be caused by many different factors originating from internal (biological) and/or external (social) sources or a combination of inner and outer. In addition, there are many different kinds of depression because each of us has developed a unique way of coping with distress. Also, each of us has a unique personality which also will influence how we may experience depression. Regardless of the starting point or the manner in which it is manifested, depression is usually experienced as defeat. Feeling defeated can lead to psychological paralysis if left unaddressed. I help my patients overcome their feelings of defeat so they can feel hopeful about their future.

I am an Emotionally Focused therapist (EFT). Research shows that those who suffer from depression actually benefit quite well from EFT therapy. Depression can be very isolating. The pain of isolation is inherently traumatizing. We are meant to be in relationship with others. I work with indiviudals and couples who struggle with depression by strengthening their relationship so that there is a deeper felt sense that the person who is suffering from depression can experience that they do matter, that they are important, that they are cared for and loved by another. This helps create a more secure attachment to self and others which is therapeutic and needed for healing.
