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.

Most clients suffer from some form of depression, due to work, marriage, family, or addiction problems. First if the symptoms are sever we recommend a consultation from a medical doctor. If the client suffers from insomnia, difficulty concentrating, anhedonia, or dramatic weight changes , we strongly suggest the client meet with their medical doctor. Also many people will call because they are struggling with depression, and sometimes it is due to an underlying medical condition, such as anemia, vitamin D deficiency, mono, thyroid condition etc. So we ask clients to request blood test be ordered by their doctor. After the vegetative symptoms are assessed and treated, then we proceed .

Research shows that Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT) is the most effective treatment (sometimes in conjunction with medication), for Clinical Depression. I was originally trained in CBT. Also, I have found that other modalities, such as Voice Dialogue, Assertiveness Training, & Acceptance & Commitment Therapy can help. Finally, a Mindfulness practice helps & a good exercise & nutrition program are crucial.

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.

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.

Depression can limit a person from thriving. These limitations can be be various and may include experiencing life as hard to get motivated or even wanting to stop existing. Thoughts of suicide are common, but not existing and not thriving can be overcome; depression can be managed. Therapy for depression will reveal the basis for your feelings of hopelessness and helplessness and help you to manage these feelings rather than be managed by them. You don't have to let depression control you. You can, with the help of therapy, manage depression so that you can thrive. Like waking up from a bad dream, you can experience a new life where you are not ruled by depression.

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.

I understand how depressing depression is! I know most people that struggle with depression do not appear to be struggling--they go about life much like everyone else, but what people don't know is how much harder it is to be fighting a constant uphill battle. Depression is not just about feeling sad or being pessimistic. It holds you back from doing the things you want. It gets in the way. There are good days when it doesn't affect you much at all, but then there are bad days that bring you to a dark, dark place in your mind. I know what it is like and I can help you in your battle against depression, contact me now

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.

Wouldn't it be great if we could take a pill to fix all our problems? While medication can be an important tool in fighting depression, psychotherapy and medication is normally the "gold standard." Forming a relationship with a therapist in a confidential and safe environment is an essential step on the road to recovery. Your therapist may end up knowing you better than anyone else in your life. Finding a "good fit" is vital. I seek to provide such an environment to facilitate self-discovery and to make change for the better.

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.

I work with individuals who experience an inner critical voice that attacks them with messages such as: “I am not enough”; “I need to be a better person”; "I cannot trust others". Some explain feeling overly responsible and share that they have difficulty expressing their authentic feelings to others. I help my clients discover that there is plenty of room for every aspect of their personhood. Shame, depression and anxiety dissipate and self-acceptance is the natural byproduct. Letting go of shame and worry leads to greater joy and fulfillment in interpersonal relationships.
