Depression is not only a chemical imbalance in the brain, but a state of being. My goal with clients is to increase their level of functioning, to establish healthy coping skills, and coordinate with their primary care physician for medication management if appropriate. Clients with a depression diagnosis can greatly benefit from therapy when they are active participants in their own treatment.

Depression comes as a whisper of condemnation or of shame for our behaviors or our feelings or our inadequacies. It insinuates itself into every dimension of our lives, sapping our joy and energy for life. It grows into a black cloud and finally a heavy burden which weighs us down. But emotions have their own logic. Let me help you unravel the perplexing logic of your depression and rebuild healthy and stable emotions.

Dr. Nedra Voorhies, LPC frequently works with physicians who prescribe anti-depressant medications for clients whose symptoms include sleep impairment, mood disturbance, and eating disruptions. She believes that symptom relief via medications is as important as is exploration of life circumstances that can cause disruptions in emotional well being. "No one should feel shame or fear when medications can decrease depression just as no one feels reluctance in taking insulin when necessary for control of diabetes. Depression can be relieved and not taking the necessary steps for relief, including medication and therapy causes unnecessary suffering."

In treating depression it is important to seek out the underlying cause. Problems with self-esteem, abuse/trauma, buried anger, relationship conflicts, health concerns, and developmental crises (such as "empty nest syndrome") are just some of the issues that can lead to depression and that I can help resolve with person-centered and cognitive behavioral therapy. As an RN I also recommend a physical because low hormone and vitamin levels can contribute to depression, and sometimes I will suggest talking with an MD about adding an antidepressant to the treatment plan. Depression oftentimes requires a multi discipline approach for real recovery, and I am happy to help coordinate that approach.

Many times depression comes from a place of worry and concern or from a place of low self-esteem. I work with clients to figure out why they tend to feel sad and then why they stay there. We process through the pain and find ways to move forward. We also look at situations to reduce worry and concern. We will work together and use your personal strengths to help you move forward.
