Depression can be relieved by getting out of your house or apartment to come to therapy. Talking to a therapist moves some of the stuck emotions and gets energy flowing even if only for a short while. By talking and other non-verbal techniques such as sandplay therapy and dreamwork, we can discover what your psyche and unconscious needs to grow and heal. Depression signifies the need to change direction. Therapy can help you see what changes you may need to make to live a happy life.

Depression cannot be generalized. It is an experience that varies greatly from person to person. Years of working with depression have taught me that each person’s path of healing is unique. I meet you with kind and caring interest to determine what is the best course of action. You may benefit from coping with stress and managing anxiety by changing ineffective ways of thinking and reacting. I help you with relationship problems and loneliness. We can also address together unresolved grief and feelings of guilt or defeat. I show you how to pay mindfull attention and develop compassion for yourself. When you uncover the deeper causes you can learn to shift your mood with skillful means.

Depression is often a deadening that comes from grief and anger that is buried inside, because of feelings of powerlessness about expressing them. Together we trace the sources of hopeless and worthless feelings in your life, and rework your understanding of what caused them. Often people are mired in guilt or shame when they are depressed, and these feelings can even come from childhood sources. I help you to express the feelings you never had a chance to, were afraid or ashamed to, always at your own pace. As your attitudes toward yourself shift, and your held feelings are expressed in session, you find you are enlivened.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

2171 Union Street #6, San Francisco, CA 94123

Depression is the experience of being cut off from feelings, leaving a person feeling numb to life. I help people work through depression by helping them reconnect with themselves. I do this by helping them develop awareness, engage somatic practices to get into their body, do cognitive behavioral techniques to help manage negative beliefs, heal past trauma through the use of EMDR, and learn to sit with more difficult feelings, such as loss and anger. By having a space to process difficult experiences, I person can be free of depression.

Josie Valderrama, Psy.D


842 California Street, San Francisco, CA 94108

I provide therapy that is both empathetic and discerning. My approach to depression is based on Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). This includes learning to identify and accept the full range of emotions, practicing mindfulness to defuse the power of negative thinking, experiential engagement rather than isolation or avoidance, and self-compassion exercises. Sometimes low mood is trying to tell us something important - that we need to recalibrate some aspect of our life, re-evaluating our perceptions and rediscovering what we truly value. I endeavor to engage my clients in this process, balancing gentleness with irreverence, and always a deep respect for each individual's unique journey.

If you are reading this, and wondering if you might be depressed, you probably are. Even if one is used to it, depression sucks the life energy out of a person, dampening their ability to concentrate, to be creative or have hope for a good future. Depression is different from the blues, which may last just a day or two. Depression can be mild, moderate or severe, but left unchecked, it can become chronic. Please call or email me so I can help you to assess where you are right now in terms of the feelings that you are having that are holding you back from a meaningful, productive and happy life.
