Depression hurts, but it doesn't have to hurt forever. Depression can be anything from a chemical imbalance to natural grief to a persistent lack of purpose. In looking at the many parts of your entire life, we can begin to understand what causes you to get stuck in the same old thoughts and habits and start to form new thoughts and habits that create a new way to live. You don't have to be a passive bystander in your own life. You can change.

Depression is usually created by Negative Cognitions learned early in life that form a client's view of themselves, such as "I am unlovable" or "not good enough." Learning can be from verbal scripts or non-verbal sources, such as physical or sexual abuse, bullying, or anger or other dysfunctions in the family of origin. Steve helps clients eliminate depression with the use of Cognitive-Behavioral tools, and to keep it from happening in the future by processing the original sources of negative beliefs through the use of EMDR. Steve will also help clients enlarge their support system and improve interpersonal intimacy to further reduce Depression and improve Self-Esteem.
