Depression drains your energy, motivation and zest for life. Depression is also a sign that some part of you needs attending to. In therapy we work to identify root causes of depressed moods and develop new ways of coping that strengthen and empower you to move forward in a way that is right for you. Together we will transform depression into expression and allow new and freeing energy to emerge.

No purpose...Feeling powerless...Hopelessness...Feel like giving up...Lack of motivation...Feeling sucked into a “black hole” with no way out...Overwhelmed... Where does it all come from? How does it make sense? Can anything be done about this? Dr. Petit provides helpful understanding of and insight into depression, depressive states and cycles. Though it is impossible to keep “bad” things from happening, it is possible to make sense of the emotional, physical, physiological, and spiritual impact. A place of hope and well-being is possible as clients work through thought processes, beliefs, behaviors, & life pattern

A person experiencing depression may feel like he/she is carring around bricks in a sack that weighs them down more and more to the point of becoming despondant. At the same time, there is always hope. This can be the hardest to see. Client will know they are not alone and how to create a support system if needed. The level of the client's depression will be evaulated and if medication is appropriate the client will be referred for medication. I will teach coping skills and address any self medicating the client may engage in. I will use cognitive behavior therapy to address any irrational thought patterns.

With depression many people believe that the only answer is medication. While many people sometimes do need medications to stabilize it is not the complete answer. Additionally there are many people that are diagnosed with depression that do not find relief with a medication regiment. There are a lot of answers to be found by looking under the disorder. I work with individuals that suffer from depression to see what life issues contribute to these feelings and how to address those things that medications cannot touch.

Depression is an area of special interest to me. It is a common problem, but never "common" to the person suffering! If you've been afraid to seek help, I encourage you to consider a holistic approach to healing your depression. This may include medical care; many physical conditions can cause, or worsen, depression. There is plenty of research supporting a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and lifestyle changes. CBT addresses patterns of thinking that can lead to feelings of depression. Examples are: chronic worrying, black-and-white thinking, expecting things to go wrong, or taking everything personally. You can be happy again!

A human being's mind is so powerful that it can either enhance him/her or bring him/her down. The mind itself is inherently powerful: whether that power is used negatively or positively, accidentally or purposefully, depends to some extent on a person's knowledge and experience. My approach with a client who feels depressed is to listen closely and discover how they think, feel, and act. Working with the client on these three factors, and how they interact, can help them reclaim their own well-being and realize they are actually the author of their mind's power.

Depression with children and adolescents can present in different ways than adults. You may think your child is displaying some normal "teenage" behaviors but these could actually be a warning sign for depression. Some warning signs include isolation from peers and family, angry outbursts, drug and alcohol use, poor academic performance, and defiance. Some other harmful behaviors you may not be aware of are suicidal thoughts, self harm or cutting. If you are concerned with any of these signs seek professional help. As a therapist I can help your child communicate these emotions, reduce and/or eliminate harmful behaviors, and learn coping skills.
