As a psychologist, depression may be the most common complaint or difficulty that my clients experience. Put simply, depression can be a result of genetic/constitutional tendencies, environmental issues such as life stressors, or both. I often employ what is known as the cognitive-behavioral approach in dealing with depression, in other words looking at the relationship between negative, self-defeating thoughts, and the resulting emotion, e.g., "Stinkin' Thinkin'." I also place a large emphasis on important daily mood issues, such as sleep, diet, activity level, and receiving adequate light levels. An attitude of gratefulness is important in reducing feelings of depression.

EMDR and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are both effective research-supported approaches to helping individuals overcome depression. Both of these approaches focus on identifying negative beliefs about yourself and experiences that may contribute to feeling depressed. EMDR is used to “reprocess” previous life experiences that may negatively affect your self-confidence, especially those that occurred in your family of origin. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is helpful in identifying and challenging irrational or negative self-beliefs that contribute to feeling depressed.

As most counselors do I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy to identify distorted thinking that may be contributing to depression. But I do not stop there. Very often depression is the brain's way of interrupting a person's life to resolve deeper emotional traumas or wounds from childhood experiences. This is where the inner healing therapy I do helps people resolve the root causes of depression. I also work with the client to make sure there is not a medical condition such as a thyroid problem that is contributing to it.

Depression can hit any of us at any time. Sometimes, this stems from some outside external force and sometimes it comes from within. I can help you work toward finding the things you enjoy again through the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, feminist therapy, and choice therapy. Often times, talking about your feelings, having a supportive environment, and realizing that there is hope can be just the thing to help get you back on track.
