Depression brings on a sense that all is bleak, hopeless and dark. It can feel like a huge struggle to get out of bed or impossible to stop crying. Suicidal thoughts to end it all might occur as can physical aches and pains. Getting little pleasure out of what used to bring you joy is a common symptom. Psychotherapy can be incredibly beneficial to someone suffering depressed and often accompanying feelings of anxiety. In a safe and secure relationship with a therapist, you can get a better understanding of your thoughts and feelings that might be a result of a recent trauma or lifetime experiences. With understanding can come relief and a renewed sense of optimism and lightness.

I offer COUPLES THERAPY for DEPRESSION where I simultaneously work with depression and marriage issues. We determine how the depression affects each partner, determining its roots in the relationship interactions, and construct a clear treatment plan. During our sessions, we will focus on how to: - communicate without the negative filter on what is said - be more aware of their partner’s needs and how to meet them - get unstuck from unhealthy repeating patterns - cope with the sadness - manage feelings of stress which arise from the challenges of life - come to terms with life changes which triggered the depression If you are struggling with depression as a couple, I would love to ....

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.

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.

Depression and chronic worry often go hand in hand and both leave us feeling helpless and alone. I work with people who are locked in cycles of repetitive, negative thinking to see that the wisdom of the body can be harnessed to help change the cycle. You can learn to listen to your body-mind's need for being accepted, encouraged, and loved, rather than harassed, put-down and pushed. Depression is the fear of doing things on the job, in relationship or in life less than perfectly. And yet perfection isn't possible. We can work together to release you from the bonds of skewed thinking. You can practice new skills, especially acceptance of yourself, other people and our human frailties.

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.

Depression can bring on feelings of loneliness, hopelessness, and helplessness. There are times when it may feel like the feeling will never end and nothing will help. The good news is that psychotherapy can be very effective in assisting the improvement of symptoms associated with depression and I have helped many clients through this difficult process. Working with me, I will help you identify your thoughts, feelings and unconscious behaviors that may contribute to your depression and, from there, you may come from a place of greater empowerment and choice.

Depression is a common yet serious illness that is treatable with a 3 prong approach: medical attention (to rule out medical issues contributing), psycho-therapy (to treat underlying contributing), and diet and exercise routine (walking, nutritious meals, etc.). Collaborative care can provide the support needed to address challenges and live your life fully.

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!
