People who struggle with depression are often misunderstood by the people around them. Often times people think they should just "snap out of it". What many don't understand is that depression can be a scary, debilitating illness that takes over a person's life. While depression can be situational or chronic, there are tools, strategies and medicines which are very effective in managing its effects. Clients can benefit by having a therapist that is patient and understanding who can both empathize with how they are feeling and offer ways for the person to take back control of his or her life. In a collaborative way, I work with clients to develop a treatment plan which gives them hope.

Depression is one of the most common reasons for seeking therapy, and it is very treatable with modern psychological approaches. The causes of depression can often come from multiple sources, and one of the goals of therapy is to localize and isolate those causes. Relaxation techniques, talk therapy and a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy are all effective methods for treating depression.
