I use several methods for helping you overcome depression. I support you in maintaining safety. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I help you to identify unhelpful thoughts and learn how to restructure your thoughts. I help you identify root causes of your depression and find ways to reduce their impact by replacing them with activities and relationships that support you in increased positive mood and personal responsibility. Depression can be comorbid with other issues you may be struggling with and I take a holistic approach to help you address what is needed in order to become a more fulfilled, and satisfied individual.

FREE 60 minute session - Depression often really just means "repression". It is usually a sign that they human system is overwhelmed with thoughts & emotions that have become unmanageable. A shift in circumstances is usually needed for people suffering from depression AND expressing emotions through a variety of outlets is extremely helpful. This can be done through verbal expression, creativity such as dance, writing, music, painting, etc. Receiving attention & compassion from others is also critical. This is what a skilled therapist can provide, though it's also important to get this from multiple avenues - a therapist, friends, family & community.

There can be a variety of causes from a loss or from grief, an "imbalance" in certain brain chemicals, or a decrease in testosterone levels in males, or anger, unforgiveness, or a past trauma. Dr. Cowan can work with you to determine both the underlying "root" cause, and also to develop the best treatment program to help you to overcome depression. There is help. There is hope.

Depression counseling involves assessing and making appropriate changes in the physical, emotional, and relational aspects of a client's life that are contributing to depressed mood. I work with clients to both remedy the underlying causes and their resulting cognitions, and the lifestyle habits that hinder their recovery. Often it is appropriate to work in conjunction with medical professionals who may suggest medications and/or nutritional supplements to correct the biochemical aspects of depressive episodes. Clients benefit most when their treatment is comprehensive and avoids dealing solely with symptom relief.
