Clients will be able to improve their depressive symptoms through therapy and have freedom from the things that hold them down. They will be able to identify and develop appropriate ways of dealing with their symptoms. My desire is that clients also get to experience an improvement in their day to day functioning, as they talk through their depression in counseling.

Sometimes we find ourselves in the "dark night of the soul." It is a place so painful that we feel we might never find our way out. Our counseling relationship can help you find out why you feel so hopeless, and help you gain insight about how your environment and relationships (both past and present) might be contributing to your feelings. Once you figure this out, we can determine what steps you might need to make to find freedom and joy again.

Again deep breathing is the key here. The inhale will energize you and the exhale will relax you. Low energy is a key symptom of depression. Also hopelessness and helplessness. Changing the way you breathe will directly change your nervous system and change the way you feel physiologically. It will also change the way you perceive reality. If you have clinical depression (not situational) then medication in addition to psychotherapy may be advised. Mostly I help people get off medication. Exercise is as effective in treating depression as medication.

Depression is a crippling experience that often goes unidentified by ourselves or those in our lives for way too long. It is self-sustaining, as it causes us to withdraw from our lives and from possible support. Mild to moderate depression may be treated with traditional "talk" psychotherapy, although severe depression may require pharmaceutical intervention. I work with you both to make sense of your depression and take steps to challenge it and move through it, into a better quality of life. We will talk. We will work somatically, with your breath and your body, to move stuck emotions and energy and remove the blocks to getting back into your life. Depression IS treatable. Seek out help.

Depression feels like a giant weight, the glue on your body that binds you to your bed. It is hard to see out of the dark fog that surrounds your everyday experiences. Finding a psychotherapist is like finding an ally; you don't have to bear the weight of your problems alone. Psychotherapy for depression and anxiety can offer hope for a changed perspective and happiness.

Depression should be seen as normal in that all of us experience depression periodically. Too much depression is discouraging and can be treated. Find out of your depression is "normal" or clinically troubling. Relief from depression is available for most depressed persons. Often depressed persons are understimuated with not enough fun or activity. On the other hand depression can be seen as the opposite of "expression" where thoughts, feelings and needs are not sufficiently acknowledge and expressed.

Depression can express itself in a variety of forms. The symptoms of depression vary from person to person. While occasional depression might be considered normal, it is not normal for it to become a hinderance to enjoying and living life. If you are depressed, allow me to provide you with tools to manage the depression while we explore the roots of the depression to create a path out of it.

Sometimes "talk therapy" alone can relieve depression and most clients find it to be helpful. I do utilize cognitive therapy when dealing with depression because our thoughts have a great deal to do with our feelings and there is evidence that this treatment approach to depression can be quite effective. When necessary, I will provide a psychiatric referral for an evaluation to determine whether or not you are a candidate for medication.

Depression can come in many forms. When you feel depressed, life is not working, you feel exhausted, you tend to isolate, and hold a negavite perception about your life, your self esteem, and not feeling hopeful about your future. My approach to treating depression is to move you out of isolation, work through your feelings of hurt, shame and guilt, and begin to trust and connect with others. You will benefit from learning how boundaries can help you to say yes to life, how to say no to others and their hurtful control, and take control over what is yours and what you want for yourself and your relationships. You will benefit from finding hope and solutions to depression.

Are you living in a cloud, where everything seems foggy and dark? Depression can be a debilitating and hopeless experience. I understand that it can be incredibly difficult to reach out for help; remaining isolated is tempting for those struggling with depression -- whether it be from grief, trauma, loss, or "just because." I have experience working with depression and can help you not only develop more effective coping skills, but also identify the core reasons behind your depression in order to provide longer-term healing and change.
