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 very common and very treatable. You are not alone. I understand the misery of being depressed and how hard it can be to keep going. Together we will explore your personal experience of depression and begin working to overcome it. I take a multi-pronged approach in treating depression, providing a number of interventions tailored especially for you.
Depression is a real thing. Those that have not suffered from depression may not understand that. They may say "just get over it", or you may even be saying that to yourself. Working with one of our trained professionals can give you a fresh perspective and give you the tools to help you overcome the effects of depression. We offer several clinicians and several different approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy, Christian counseling, Somatic Experiencing®, family systems therapy, narrative therapy, strategic therapy, and others.

Depression can be a lonely and debilitating, make you feel alone, isolated or defective. Many times we have well meaning loved ones who try to offer advice and help, which can further exacerbate the shame, guilt and sadness that go along with depression. I work with my clients to alleviate depression by using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. I do not believe that depression should define you and I understand the personal toll that depression takes on all aspects of your life. We are all doing the best we can, and depression does not have to define you or control your life.

A fog. Quicksand. Moving through mud. Whatever phrase you use to describe it, depression can make you feel as if you're lost, aimless, and stuck like you've never been stuck before. I help my clients identify the roots of their depression and guide them on how to take the first steps out of the hopelessness and helplessness they've been feeling. We will work together to find a better path for you and and start moving toward a brighter future.

Sometimes when people are depressed, the last thing that they want to do is find the energy to meet a new therapist. I understand that and will try to make the process as painless as possible. I can even consult with your previous therapist so that you do not feel like you have to start all over. In addition to using cognitive behavior therapy, I tend to use mindfulness and acceptance approaches with depression. My intention is to help you identity goals that you truly care about, as opposed to goals that other people think you should be working on. I want to help you feel happier and more transparent with who you are.

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.
