Depression manifests in many ways but the overriding symptoms in children are irritability, changes in sleeping and eating habits, low energy, not seeming to enjoy things that once were fun and isolating. Some have feelings of hopelessness. I work with my clients, to gain an understanding of what they feel. We work together to uncover the deeper reasons for the feelings, the thoughts and behavior. And then begin to learn ways to change the thoughts and feelings so they can once again feel more confident that things will work out for them.

When you do not seek help for depression, you suffer needlessly. The depression gets worse if feelings are unexpressed, coupled with isolation. We will begin by identifying options for the future and setting realistic goals that enable you to enhance your mental and emotional well-being. We will focus and draw on your strengths, focus on the positives and you will learn tools and skills needed to move through this state. I will help you understand and improve communication patterns of interacting with other people, should it contribute to the depression. You will make small changes each day. We build on it. Gradually you will incorporate enjoyable, fulfilling activities back into your life

Depression is like being stuck in a dark pit, and you don't know the way out, and you have no energy to try. I'm here to give you hope and to help you find a way out of the dark. We start with little steps that you can take, to help you breathe and survive. We may then address some of the causes of your depression, whether they are patterns of emotions, behaviors, thoughts, or unfinished emotional business or trauma from your past. My goal is not only that you not only overcome the depression, but also become strong, full of life and vitality and confident of your own inner strength.

My approach to depression is primarily cognitive and behavioral. Depression is often a result of maladaptive ways of thinking and poor self care habits. This type of therapy has been shown to be effective in the treatment of depression. The difficult part for depressed people is finding the motivation to make these necessary changes in order to feel better. One of my primary jobs is to help you figure out how to do these things in a way that allows you to be successful and to provide tools that will support your efforts.
