Depression is a debilitating and difficult problem to deal with, because the very nature of depression can stop you from seeking help. My approach with clients living with depression is not to seek out root causes, but to attempt to break the cycle of depression through small manageable tasks. As a client you will feel safe enough to try new things in order to make living with your depression, easier and more manageable. You can get control of your life and learn to live and laugh again.

People may medicate their depression with TV, alcohol, food, isolation, or excessive sleep. One definition of depression is "anger turned inward." Talking with a psychologist is one of the best methods to understand your down moods, unusual thoughts, and self-defeating beliefs. Friends may say, "Get over it" about your jealousy toward your sister or your sadness over your girlfriend who texted "it's over" 3 months ago. If you are on medication for already-diagnosed depression, therapy is important to bring new ideas into your brain. If you are considering medication, start with talk therapy. Don't keep waiting for "it" to go away. What's at the bottom of your depression?

Often times depression becomes crippling for those who experience it and they don't have the energy to get out of bed, let alone, know how to create a change. Fatigue, constant sadness, lack of motivation and suicidal thoughts are common in those who suffer from depression and it's important to know that there is a way to manage those feelings and create a more fulfilling life. Through counseling we will address these very complicated issues.

Depression can rob you of living your fullest life. There are many forms of depression and treatments available for each. I work with my clients to assess symptoms, determine what kind of depression they have, to dispel any myths they've heard about people who suffer from depression, we discuss the pros and cons of taking medication and and gain an in-depth understanding of how their depression is affecting them and their family. I also lead a small, 6 week group called Dealing with Depression. Together they explore their depression while supporting one another. Through music, art, and other activities they increase their awareness of what it's like to live with depression.
