Depression can be a very lonely and scary experience. People experiencing it can feel hopeless and helpless at times. The good news is that counseling is a very effective treatment for mild to moderate depression and I have seen my clients improve when they have struggled with depression. Having a safe place to talk about the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors associated with depression, helping my clients identify their blind spots and generating alternatives, and knowing that I am on my client's team trying to help them through this challenge has been very beneficial for the people I have helped.

When self-criticism meets self-compassion, the heavy fog of depression lifts. I will help you release the chronic worry, regret, and feelings of inadequacy that fuel depression. I will help you end the rumination that fuels insomnia, one of depression's most painful and debilitating symptoms. I will also help you seek out and celebrate all that is good in you, your loved ones, and your world. Moreover, we will identify the activities, behaviors, and people that make you feel good. We will then make these sources of good feeling more prominent in your life. With the tools of compassion, gratitude, and skillful behavior at your command, you will be empowered to create a life worth living.

Depression is one of the most disabling conditions a human being can experience. When you're going through it, it's nearly impossible to believe it can get better. But it can. If you're experiencing depression, I urge you to get treatment as soon as possible, whether with me or someone else. If you work with me, we'll start out with behavior changes you can make that will help you feel a little better right away. As our work progresses, we'll look at a wide variety of influences on your depression and tailor your treatment plan to your needs. I include positive psychology perspectives in my work, which means I can help you not only reduce symptoms but increase the level of happiness.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Depression is a difficult thing to deal with on your own. Therapy can provide support as you find ways to increase your energy level, motivation, and sense of inspiration. Together, we can explore past experiences, current challenges, and future goals. Consider that you are not depressed. But rather, you are experiencing depression at this time in your life. There is still so much to live for and do!

Does life seem bleak right now? Have you lost interest in the things you used to enjoy? Do you feel sad most of the time? Do you have little to look forward to, and a lot you’d prefer not to look back on? When you are convinced that things will never get better no matter what, you are depressed. I can give you tools and teach you how to use them to dig yourself out of the emotional ditch you’re in. It is possible to feel hope again when you know how.

There is hope!! How you experience your depression can change. The truth is we all suffer from varying degrees of depression. Depression is not necessarily to be cured but to better understood. Pain is a teacher, not an enemy. What one generally thinks is the problem may not turn out to be the problem, the problem is generally how you deal with the problem. The real challenge of working through depression is learning about your own process of beliefs, opinions, judgements, etc. When you get a better understanding of your process and learn how to process differently is when you will discover more times than not your depression alleviating.
