Depression is an intruder. It gets in the way of personal happiness and pursuits. Depression also interferes in interpersonal relationships. So how do you deal with this intruder? Either you manage depression or it manages you. I assist my clients in developing coping strategies to manage depression so that it is less intrusive. Using modified thinking and acting strategies, individuals report improved mood and energy. I often hear my clients report, "I feel like myself again!"

Successfully treating depression has been an important factor in our success. We believe strongly that a marriage is impacted by depression and/or anxiety in a partner. Thus we treat the underlying depression as a cornerstone of the marriage. Our success with depression is very high, due to a strategy to treat the underlying cause of the depression for a long-term result. We approach depression in a holistic manner, looking at intelligent lifestyle choices as critical to mental health. Many patients are wishing to avoid medications, if permitted by their physicians, or augment their results, which we have had exceptional success with, with even years long, resistant depression.

Research has shown that the most effective approach to depression is a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and medication (if appropriate). I provide compassionate support for the painful challenges of depression while teaching the client to develop effective coping strategies including the ability to lessen negative thinking and increase their enjoyment of daily life. If a client is taking or wants to try anti-deprresants, I can help them with medication management. I also help family members of those with depression manage the stress it causes them as well as learn to use effective approaches to support their relative.

I think that my most important technique is to assist individuals in recognizing that depression is a condition and is not a form of laziness; many individuals have expressed a sense of relief as others have encouraged them to "just get over it". I utilize a combination of support and encouragement, including discussions of successes and challenges. I strongly discourage the use of the word "should" and any judgmental language. In addition, I believe that there is no specific time table for recovery, and that each individual is unique in their recovery.

Making sure that if the depression is chemical in nature is very important to get a medical/psychiatric evaluation. Many of symptoms of depression stem from unresolved self esteem issues and early childhood issues. Changing the way we self talk and how we view self and who we operate in the world can change our mood state. Being more aware of the cognitive nature of ones perceptions allow the individual make significant changes in how they feel.

Karen’s approach in assisting people suffering from depression varies with each person. She initially searches for the reasons causing the depression, and together she and the client will pursue the changes needed to alleviate the symptoms. Karen uses the word picture with her clients of viewing depression as being down in a valley, and by putting the accepted interventions into practice, she can assist them in climbing out of the valley. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a well researched therapy that has been shown to be effective in treating people suffering from depression, and this is the intervention Karen most often uses along with other accepted techniques.

Sometimes people feel depresed and can atribute it to stressful events that have occured, other times people can't quite put their finger on why they feel depressed, they just know they're not happy, feel unmotivated, and in some cases hopeless and helpless. What we now know about neuroscience helps us understand how and why depression occurs. I will help you determine whether your depression can be improved through talk therapy combined with some changes to your daily routine or whether a clinical depression has set in that may respond well to medication too. I have a wonderful, caring Doctor I work with who will assess clinical depression and offer recommendaitons if necessary.

Depression. This form of mood disorder is extremely common among the clients I see. I meet the client where he/she is at. We take time to look at they triggers for the depressive response. Then we come up with a gameplan to build skills and tools to cope with the symptoms of depression. These symptoms typically include sadness, lack of motivation, increased/decreased sleep, problems in relationships, difficulty managing daily routines, and lack of hope for the future. I work with the client, side-by-side, to find that light at the end of the tunnel so to speak.

Depression can affect us both mentally and physically. I believe that our thoughts and behaviors are very closely related in the sense that our thoughts can affect our behaviors, which in turn can affect our thoughts. This is not to stay that we are doomed to a vicious cycle, as I also strongly believe that we have the ability to change our thoughts and behaviors, thereby decreasing our depressive state. Depression does not have to be a way of life, and I enjoy helping others finding the joy in their lives again.

Depression is seen by some as a biochemical imbalance that is genetically transferred to the individual and can only be treated through medication. This might be part of the picture, but also a depressive, negative style of thinking can result in changes in the brain that bring about this unhealthy biochemical imbalance - and psychological treatment can change the thinking style that leads to this imbalance, rendering the individual to be free of reliance on medication and overall improved life that lasts on it's own merits.
