We all feel sad or discouraged at times. However, sometimes these feelings persist for months, or are so intense that it is a daily struggle to wake up, shower, and actively participate in life. You may feel hopeless, that there is no meaning to life, and cut off contact from your loved ones. There is no single 'cause' of depression and others may become frustrated your failed attempts at getting better. Our work together can identify the many factors contributing to low mood, change unhelpful patterns of thinking or behaving that contribute to depression, increase self esteem and empowerment, and identify a balance between your self-care and various life commitments.

In my work with depression, I have found that it's often like a big, thick lens that distorts the worldview of the person I'm working with. Along with the distortion is a draining away of energy, motivation, and hope. I help the person see this lens, to understand its impacts, and to identify what he or she really wants in their life (which shows up in their values, hopes, and ideals). The source of the depression may be a specific life event or a pervasive sense of being "not good enough" (usually established in childhood). I often use hypnosis to correct mistaken beliefs behind the sense of unworthiness or to let the sadness go, which has proven to be very effective for powerful healing.

Sometimes in the midst of depression it is hard to see how negative thinking is effecting our mood. Is the glass always half empty or half full? Does the depression go back to unresolved childhood issues? I will work with clients to see how they can make some changes in their mood with cognitive therapy and EMDR. Sometimes old unfinished pain from our past is keeping us stuck in the present.

Resilience Therapist and Coach

Depression is common and resilience skills significantly decrease the symptoms. Neuroscience research has taught us how to change our brain chemistry through simple practices and principles. Mindfulness, gratitude, self-compassion, healthy habits, meditation and purpose are a few of these possible resilience skill areas. This brings much hope for preventing and treating depression, one of the most common disabilities. Contact me for a free consultation.

Depression can be like a bully, pushing us down and keeping us from moving forward. Thankfully, it can get better with therapy. Our therapists frequently work with depression, and have a wide range of strategies to help you get back on your feet. However, we look to do far more than simply "manage" depression, we want to heal it at its source. Sometimes depression is situational, a natural response to difficult life circumstances. But often, unhealed wounds from the past contribute to make it even worse. We can provide you with practical tools you need to heal, one day at a time, and also help you work through any deeper issues so that the healing is stronger and more lasting.

Depression comes in various ways and may have a certain origin (biological or environmental) or may be "just there". I have worked with many clients who struggle with all types of depression and have found CBT and DBT to be helpful to make positive changes in your life. When you are motivated to make changes, whether it is how you think or what you do, your life can turn around very fast.

Depression is sometimes a natural consequence of our experiences. Those experiences when voiced and deeply understand can be transformed from depression into a fullness of the human experience. The opposite of depression is not happiness but meaning and purpose. The space between depression and meaning is compassion and validation for ourselves.

Depression is something that we all experience during some periods of life. However, when it becomes habitual and saps our feelings of inner joy and energy for life then it's time that we must do something about it. Often people who suffer from depression and become accustomed to it and feel hopeless about whether they can ever really change their mood. There is hope! With commitment to therapy and working on changing the underlying negative patterns of beliefs causing depression, there is every possibility of change.
