Depression is a serious issue. I know it is difficult to seek help when you are depressed and you probably feel hopeless that there is any help at all. It is the nature of the illness that keeps you from getting the help you deserve. Psychotherapy can help! Depression is treatable and you can live a happier and more productive life. I provide a safe place to help you understand and deal with the depression and together we will create a plan to help you feel better.

If you're stuck, it can feel like your own mind is against you, pulling you down into a swamp. It usually has to do with imagining that you are helpless - and while it might seem that you ARE helpless, it's really important to get in to talk to a therapist to get past that idea, and get moving forward again. Let's break it down into manageable pieces and get you activated and engaged in life.

Depression is the experience of being cut off from feelings, leaving a person feeling numb to life. I help people work through depression by helping them reconnect with themselves. I do this by helping them develop awareness, engage somatic practices to get into their body, do cognitive behavioral techniques to help manage negative beliefs, heal past trauma through the use of EMDR, and learn to sit with more difficult feelings, such as loss and anger. By having a space to process difficult experiences, I person can be free of depression.

Depression robs us, not only of our happiness and sense of well-being, but also of the hope that things will get better. Depression makes us feel we are worthless, so it is hard to reach out for the help we need. I help clients defeat depression through reestablishing hope and improving self-esteem and self-care. I have worked with clients suffering from chronic, lifelong depression as well as those experiencing their first depressive episode. Overcoming depression restores resilience and can teach lifelong lessons in self-care and the path to emotional health. I have been there myself, so I know that there is hope. You will overcome depression and feel like yourself again.

Depression can manifest itself in different ways. It's most well-known personality takes the form of tearfulness, isolation, low self esteem, hopelessness, and negative self-talk. But did you know that depression can also show up as irritability, patterns of avoidance, aggression, and anxiety? Because of both the more popular face of depression and the stigma attached to it, people encounter difficulty in reaching out for and receiving help. It can be a really hopeless place to feel stuck. I will help you to come to a place of understanding your depression and you will learn tools to abate and manage the symptoms.

When you do not seek help for depression, you suffer needlessly. The depression gets worse if feelings are unexpressed, coupled with isolation. We will begin by identifying options for the future and setting realistic goals that enable you to enhance your mental and emotional well-being. We will focus and draw on your strengths, focus on the positives and you will learn tools and skills needed to move through this state. I will help you understand and improve communication patterns of interacting with other people, should it contribute to the depression. You will make small changes each day. We build on it. Gradually you will incorporate enjoyable, fulfilling activities back into your life

Our understanding of depression and its origins has deepened in recent years, especially with the much more nuanced knowledge we now have about the influences of both our early lives and neurobiology in shaping how we experience and respond to stress and adversity. If you are depresses, it is important to understand whether it is a response to situational, and possibly temporary circumstances, a biological tendency, a response to long-term trauma or a combination of triggers. If you wish to explore how I could help with your particular situation, please call me at 415-533-9724.

Depression can make it even more difficult to come into therapy. Feelings of hopelessness and despair can lead to isolation which often only makes the depression worse. Even though it's difficult to come in and talk, therapy really can help to increase awareness and lift your feelings of depression which will help you to feel more engaged with your life. Take the first step to feeling better and we will collaborate to work through your depression and work towards generating awareness, emotional and psychological movement, and motivation in your life.

Anyone who has struggled with depression knows that relief can be hard to come by. I take a very pro-active and collaborative approach in working with clients facing depression. I help clients both work with and manage their depressive symptoms, as well as helping them access and work through the underlying causes of those symptoms. For example, I find that addressing the anger, grief or sadness that is oftentimes "underneath" the depression goes a tremendous way in beginning to shift the depression itself. When appropriate, I also work collaboratively with a client's physician to build treatment plans that include both medication and therapy, an often very effective combination.

Depression is often a deadening that comes from grief and anger that is buried inside, because of feelings of powerlessness about expressing them. Together we trace the sources of hopeless and worthless feelings in your life, and rework your understanding of what caused them. Often people are mired in guilt or shame when they are depressed, and these feelings can even come from childhood sources. I help you to express the feelings you never had a chance to, were afraid or ashamed to, always at your own pace. As your attitudes toward yourself shift, and your held feelings are expressed in session, you find you are enlivened.

Depression can have many different sources: isolation, unresolved loss, unconscious anger turned against the self, feelings of shame, inadequacy and low self-esteem. It is sometimes experienced as a kind of deadness or emptiness, an absence of feeling. Therapy offers you the opportunity to get to the bottom of what is troubling you, to find your way to solutions. By talking through your issues and feelings you know what you need to do to change and you have support for taking the steps to make the change happen. Everyone needs to feel heard and understood, to feel empathy for their suffering, in order to do this. I offer this empathy, support and guidance to you.

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.

Oftentimes, if you scratch the surface of depression, you will find loss, anger, despair, a lack of meaning or purpose, a profound sense of disappointment with others, with oneself, with the way that one's life has been lived. These are the issues that I really try to get to with my clients that come in suffering from depression. I often find that depression is connected to childhood experiences of emotional neglect or inattention. I help my clients articulate and grieve these early experiences and offer them an attuned and empathic relationship that helps them to feel seen and validated. This helps them to see and to value themselves, which opens them up to invest more fully in their life.
