Over 120 million people worldwide are affected by the black dog of depression, as Sir Winston Churchill described it. I have had over twenty year experience dealing with people’s depressions. Psychology sees depression as falling into two main categories. The first is caused by a specific event and is best dealt with in short term symptom focused treatment. For this we have the fancy name exogenous depression. The second type is what we call endogenous, which is depression that seems to linger, without a specific cause. This requires a different approach. I would be glad to help you sort things out and understand your depression better so that you have a clear plan to deal with it.

Underlying depression often are unresolved disappointments, anxiety, guilt, sadness, grief and losses. Together we will walk through the underlying issues finding resolution. Sometimes I will refer you to a physician for prescription medication. In combination with psychotherapy, depression can lift. We can find what things will lead to more pleasure in your life and I can help you to move toward them.

Depression robs us of joy. It makes things that once were fun, lifeless and dull. Depression makes it hard to think clearly and efficiently. We get slow, sluggish, irritable, and exhausted. It can rob us of sleep or make us sleep 15 hours a day. Antidepressant medications can help. Some clients choose a combination of medication and therapy. Others choose therapy alone. Cognitive/behavioral therapy is one approach I use in treating depression. What we think dictates how we feel. Learning to identify self-sabotaging thoughts leads to changing those thoughts. This, in turn, can lead to recapturing the joy that depression has taken away.
