Every life has times of sadness. When that sadness becomes depression, it is important to get support from a therapist. You can’t “just snap out of it,” and the effects can be devastating. Signs that you might be suffering from depression include a depressed mood most of the day, a loss of interest or pleasure in activities you previously enjoyed, poor or excessive, loss of energy, significant increase or decrease in appetite, thoughts of death. If you are experiencing these types of symptoms, don’t wait to get the support you need. Help is available. I provide a compassionate and supportive environment to assess your situation and work together toward relief. Contact me today.

Depression and anxiety often occur together and treatment is similar from a cognitive view. However, treating depression requires some special approaches to stop the cycle of negative thinking, loss of energy, and feelings of hopelessness and guilt. My approach is to first explore if there are events or situations that might explain the depression. When there are no apparent reasons for depression, then it is likely that there is a biological or genetic underpinning. Most important is for the person suffering from depression to recognize that treatments can and do work to break the depressive cycle.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

There are many causes for depression and many forms of depression, from reactive depressions to deep internal depressions. Sudden depressions as well as long lasting depressions are not to be ignored. They are serious emotional responses which can benefit extensively from appropriate counseling and therapeutic interventions. Having a caring and listening ear to talk to during a time of depressive despair can be extremely healing. It is often stated that a healthy listening relationship can heal beyond measure. There are depressions which will benefit from medical interventions along with talking interventions. In general, cared for depressions will greatly improve and most will pass.

Understanding that there are different types of depression, different levels of severity, and various causes, I work with each individual to assess what kind of depression they are experiencing and possible causes. Often anxiety and depression occur together. Along with providing a safe, non-judgmental place and therapeutic relationship for people to talk about their depressive feelings/emotions and experience, I also utilize research-based therapies that have proven effective for treating depression and anxiety.

I am an Emotionally Focused therapist (EFT). Research shows that those who suffer from depression actually benefit quite well from EFT therapy. Depression can be very isolating. The pain of isolation is inherently traumatizing. We are meant to be in relationship with others. I work with indiviudals and couples who struggle with depression by strengthening their relationship so that there is a deeper felt sense that the person who is suffering from depression can experience that they do matter, that they are important, that they are cared for and loved by another. This helps create a more secure attachment to self and others which is therapeutic and needed for healing.

Depression can be caused by many different factors originating from internal (biological) and/or external (social) sources or a combination of inner and outer. In addition, there are many different kinds of depression because each of us has developed a unique way of coping with distress. Also, each of us has a unique personality which also will influence how we may experience depression. Regardless of the starting point or the manner in which it is manifested, depression is usually experienced as defeat. Feeling defeated can lead to psychological paralysis if left unaddressed. I help my patients overcome their feelings of defeat so they can feel hopeful about their future.

If you are experiencing sadness that just won't go away, or a hopelessness that is immobilizing you, it may be clinical depression. There are a variety of very effective ways to treat depression, from cognitive therapy, exercise, nutritional supplements, biblio-therapy, or medication. The least effective is to get a medication from your primary physician and wait. I will help you plan a full intervention that will give you the earliest relief possible. Whether your depression is mild or crippling, I know how to take care of you. Sometimes, just getting to be listened to brings new hope and some relief. But we will do whatever it takes to bring you to health again.

All our feelings begin with thoughts, just like depression. I provide a safe non-judgmental place to therapeutically process life experiences and negative thoughts that lead us to feel depressed, unloved and unworthy. We used to think that increasing a strong self-esteem fights depression. Studies now show that self-esteem can be harmful. Instead, we are now learning that self-compassion creates a strong foundation where one can learn to become content in whatever situation they find themselves in. Through therapeutic mindfulness you can learn to let go of those things that are holding you back, and find your inner joy and contentment.
