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 suffered from significant depression early in my life for decades. At first I thought I had little control over it and that I had inherited it from my mother. Eventually, I realized that depression is largely encouraged by faulty thinking patterns. Challenging thought patterns using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps change the way one views his or her participation in the world. Also, focusing on the positive aspects of situations instead of negative aspects gives us a new lens in which to view our world. Sometimes we just have to allow depression to pass, choosing to view it as if we were watching a TV show, instead of getting sucked into it for an unknown length of time.

Clients usually experience a progressive decline in mood, which can impact their emotions, the quality of their sleep, relationships (they may even begin to withdraw from others), and have persistent negative thoughts. Many clients prefer to explore viable holistic and integrative strategies before trying medication. In our collaboration, we will design a plan to explore possible options, strategies to strengthen effective coping mechanisms, and identify a plan to enhance the opportunity for recovery.

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.

It can often seem like society expects us to be happy and positive at all times, that any admission of sadness or a loss of motivation, energy, or engagement with life is a personal failure. But Depression isn't a personal failure, and it is also more than just "feeling sad". If you find yourself down in the hole of disconnection, surrounded by a fog that is interfering with your life and relationships, you need a hand to help you climb out. A trained therapist understands the mechanics of depression and can help you understand it and find strategies to make your way up and out of it, and back into the light. Please contact me so we can begin to work on this process together.

Are you feeling sad, helpless, hopeless, unmotivated, and alone? Having difficulty sleeping, eating, and engaging in activities you typically enjoy? Depression feels so lonely, but it is actually a fairly common experience and a condition that is easily treated. Studies indicate that talk therapy can be an effective way to alleviate symptoms. Cognitive behavioral therapy can help you replace maladaptive thought patterns with more positive, reality-based self-statements and develop strategies to increase your energy and motivation so you can fully enjoy life. I will support you as we work together to understand and resolve your symptoms.

Depression is usually about the past. Such as, things that have happened to you, losses you have had, things that have been said to you or by you. Bad memories get us down yet we do not have to stay in that place of sadness. Also, depression has no energy so it is difficult to do the things we need to do in order to feel better. Take the first step and make an appointment. Each step leads to another step. Depression is very treatable.

Depression is more than having the blues. When you have depression, you may feel like getting up in the morning, brushing your teeth, or getting dressed all feel like too much. Sometimes life even feels so hard that killing yourself seems like a reasonable solution. Though medication may help, it is often not the whole story. Depression often masks other emotions that have been buried, sometimes from childhood, sometimes because a person was taught that only "positive" emotions were acceptable. Learn to uncover what is causing your depression and regain your aliveness so that you can once again, or perhaps for the first time, feel that you are living a full and productive life.
