Sometimes the pain of loss is so severe it can leave you wondering if you're depressed.

I can help you tell the difference between grief and depression even though the symptoms can be overlapping. Either way, I care about you and will tailor our work to your needs so you can start feeling better.

Research has provided significant evidence that depression can be improved or even eliminated with a wide range of interventions. Although many believe that the “gold standard” treatment for depression is medication and talk therapy, I believe that the least intrusive intervention should be targeted first. Try talking to a therapist before getting medication prescribed. I will help you examine how you’re thinking about the problem may be actually supporting your depression, how your relationships may be contributing to your sense of sadness and frustration and how you can begin to make concrete behavioral modifications to begin the path to recovery.

Dealing with depression can be one of the most difficult obstacles an individual can face. My approach to working with depression is starting where you are. I begin simply by listening to you. Form there we can work on the basics, sleep schedule, diet, and exercise. Depression can be beaten with patience and consistency. I have found success using several forms of treatment for depression, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and psychodynamic theory. The goal is to stop the cycle of negative emotions causing negative thoughts and then negative thoughts causing negative emotions. It's a difficult cycle but together we can recognize unhealthy patterns and change them.

Depression leaves us feeling stuck, unable to function, with feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. One can often feel irritable and angry with difficulty sleeping. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms the earliest intervention is the best. Don't let these symptoms get any more ingrained without reaching out for the help that is necessary to move beyond. Research shows that the best approach to treatment for depression is talk therapy and medication management (if appropriate and not advisable for all individuals} We can explore the best approach for you. Sometimes depression is exasperated by past traumatic life events we can address those needs as well.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor
Location: 910 Skokie Blvd. Suites 211 and 213, Northbrook
A very useful book is "The Instinct to Heal: Treating Anxiety and Depression Without Drugs or Talk Therapy" - written by a psychiatrist who is also a specialist in integrative medicine. Research shows that Omega 3 fatty acids (fish oils), exercise, thought-changing, Dr. Pennebaker writing techniques, light therapy and a simple biofeedback process called HeartMath can all help resolve depression. I offer all these interventions to my clients. Together we will find the right combination of treatments for you. You can have more energy, sleep better, feel more positive and look forward to your future! If depression has resulted in weight gain, you can safely lose that weight. Don't give up!

When someone feels like they have been turned upside down and the life has been poured out of them - it may seem like an impossible dream to feel better. But depression is often treatable. I approach depression work from a cognitive, behavioral and emotional approach.
