Depression, ranging from mild to severe, interferes in all areas of daily function. When we’re drained of energy, enjoyment and motivation, we can become caught in a vicious cycle of isolation and worsening or persistent symptoms. Reaching out for assistance is an effective first step in changing this cycle. To take control of depression symptoms, we will make progressive steps for healthy function, learn skills to effectively regulate emotion intensity, and challenge the negative pattern.

Depression is often a teacher that we haven't connected with our feelings and grieved for the loss of someone or something in our life. An example of a loss could be loss of our youth, what could have been, a dream, a part of ourselves or we are denying part of ourselves. The pain of depression causes us to slow down even though we may not want to but it also clouds our reasoning and often we feel hopeless and sometimes suicidal. In therapy we find a safe space to connect with our pain and find a way to accept the circumstances of our lives even though they may not be what we want them to be. Recovery from depression often becomes the start of a more meaningful and congruent life.

Depression can feel like overwhelming sadness, or maybe like you are in a "funk" that you can not get out of. People often start to isolate themselves, and focus on negative thoughts. I offer a warm, safe place to share your feelings, examine your relationships and perceptions that may be contributing to your depression. I introduce concrete suggestions that will help you get your back on track. People frequently feel a sense of relief after sharing their burdens. In discussing experiences people are often able to view themselves differently and gain insight into how they can more effectively deal with situations and relationships.

Depression is a serious mental disorder that affects every area of a person's life. It is a regular mode of operation for those who have it, unlike the occasional sadness that everyone experiences from time to time. Depression might be mild, characterized by low energy and a lack of interest, or it might be severe, characterized by violent mood swings and a desire to give up on life. Left untreated, the person suffering depression might contemplate harming themselves. Depression is frequently linked to substance abuse, as it effects the same area of the brain, and sufferers of depression often try to self medicate with drugs or alcohol. At Valiant Recovery, we treat the dual diagnosis of depression and substance abuse in order to care for the whole person.

While there are many causes and contributors to depression, a common approach to working with it involves challenging negative thinking. Hurtful or damaging stories we tell ourselves tend to lead to feelings of hopelessness and sadness, which in turn, manifest as depression. At least in part, therapy for depression involves exploring the roots of negative thinking whereby its legitimacy is safely challenged. By undermining these hurtful thoughts, we are more inclined to experience preferred emotions, and a more enjoyable outcome. Clients that engage this process tend to find relief from depressive symptoms and live a more fulfilling life with more options available to them.

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck, with little to no motivation. We might also blame ourselves or others for how we got here. As a psychologist my role isn't to change you, rather it is to help you gain a greater understanding of what is going on. However, this isn't a stopping point. Through greater understanding we might also increase our compassion for ourselves. By giving ourselves some grace and working through the stress and challenges of our lives often we find that motivation to move forward and continue to grow and thrive!

My extensive work with depression will help you explore and discover the roots of depression in your life, why it continues, and how to reduce and manage depression. I work with clients to map out a customized Depression Management strategy designed to: Identify their depression cycle, The effects of depression in their lives, Zone in on key depression triggers, and Personalize strategies to interrupt their depression cycle. Since each person's learning and change process differs, I integrate various resources, tools, reading materials, and screening kits -- depending on the preferences of my clients. Depression takes a collaborative, supportive, and ongoing partnership to combat it.
