My therapeutic approach in treating depression is to assist my clients in gaining insight and awareness as to the origin and cause of their depressed mood and unhappiness. I conduct an evaluation to determine the severity of the depression and create a treatment plan for therapy. I assist clients in understanding the causes for their depression, help clients develop coping mechanisms and increase awareness of behaviors that perpetuate the client's depression. My work mainly consists of teaching emotional intelligence, mindfulness, DBT, and CBT skills to learn to manage and overcome the depression.

You might be experiencing profound loss and feel isolated and alienated from those around you. Perhaps the loneliness you feel comes from a profound sense of not being fully known and understood. Because every human being and each individual's process is unique, I won't put you through a series of pre-determined exercises or fit you into some theoretical model. I work in collaboration with you to explore, discover, illumine, and heal the wounds that have kept you from expanding into the fullness of who you are meant to be.

I work with a depressed nervous system by working with the body. Often we struggle to sleep, eat, or accomplish relatively simple tasks. Our bodies are stuck with the brake on. When our body thinks it is futile, out mind follows quickly thereafter and we begin to tell ourselves how pointless things are and how worthless we are. I work with the whole body to re-regulate the body to enable you to get back to a whole integrated self.

Depression is an overused word, and therefore misunderstood. I will work with you to help you understand if you are truly depressed, caught in grief, or going through a rocky life-transition. How we respond to our life is as, or even more important than the facts of our life. Our reactions to our circumstances will guide our emotional path in either a positive or negative way. Let me help you embrace the parts of yourself that are unknown, even to you. Bringing your darkness to light, will help you to see yourself in a much more empathetic way.

Can’t get out of bed? Unmotivated? No energy? Sleeping too much? Isolating? Depression can be so debilitating! But it doesn’t have to be. You can feel better. You can find healing from depression and live the life that you are meant to live. My approach is one of mindfulness. We will address how mind, body, and emotion are interconnected. You will learn how your reactions to the depressive spiral is what actually caused the damage and how your efforts to get out of depression keep you stuck in the pain you are trying to escape. Do you find that nothing you do seems to help make the depression go away? This is because trying to solve what is “wrong” with you just makes things worse!

It can often seem like society expects us to be happy and positive at all times, that any admission of sadness or a loss of motivation, energy, or engagement with life is a personal failure. But Depression isn't a personal failure, and it is also more than just "feeling sad". If you find yourself down in the hole of disconnection, surrounded by a fog that is interfering with your life and relationships, you need a hand to help you climb out. A trained therapist understands the mechanics of depression and can help you understand it and find strategies to make your way up and out of it, and back into the light. Please contact me so we can begin to work on this process together.

Does your child feel, irritable, sad, withdrawn or bored most of the time? Feeling hopeless and helpless. These are some common signs of kids that may be experiencing depression. For the younger kids I use play therapy as an option and bring in art therapy techniques. Children express easily through art and play and give voice to what is hidden in their hearts and thoughts. With proper treatment and supports in place, your child can thrive and enjoy everyday activities once again.

Clients usually experience a progressive decline in mood, which can impact their emotions, the quality of their sleep, relationships (they may even begin to withdraw from others), and have persistent negative thoughts. Many clients prefer to explore viable holistic and integrative strategies before trying medication. In our collaboration, we will design a plan to explore possible options, strategies to strengthen effective coping mechanisms, and identify a plan to enhance the opportunity for recovery.
