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.

Depression feels like walking through mud. We lose ourselves and wonder if we will ever be found again. Often depression is a result of unexpressed negative emotions (which we were never allowed to safely express in our family of origin - so we swallowed it instead). I am very comfortable with the shame and humility that the human condition sometimes hands us - and I can sit with my clients while they work through unexpressed sadnesses - and ultimately find joy in their lives.

Are you feeling hopeless and looking at your life negatively most of the time? Have you lost interest in most of your formerly pleasant activities? Are you isolating yourself and feeling alienated from loved ones and friends. Are you constantly fatigued and wanting to sleep all the time? Do you have thoughts about death? I help clients decrease their suffering from depression by working together on several fronts: identify and work through current and past experiences and issues that lead to the depression; examine and modify the “depressed thinking” that tends to maintain the overwhelming symptoms of depression; develop coping skills to reduce depressive symptoms and get back to living.

Depression can be experienced in a number of different ways. It can feel like an overwhelming sense of sadness or grief, which can make it difficult to get out of bed and carry on your daily functions. It can also emerge as irritability or even boredom. Depression can cloud your judgment and can make being in relationships challenging. Depression can also be confusing, particularly if you don't know what caused it. In psychotherapy, I can support you in discovering insights that can help you find relief. I can support you in finding ways to better cope with your feelings and process whatever old internal wounds may be lingering, which has led to your depression.

I have been working with people struggling with depression for the last 17 years. Using a lense of mindfulness and meditation, I help people to see past the symptoms of depression in order to ask "why is this here? What is my higher self trying to tell me?" I also incorporate cognitive therapy where appropriate, in an effort to decrease a client's negative thinking.

Symptoms of depression can leave one feeling lost and alone. Counseling can help you gain your bearings and find your way back to normalcy. Often our thoughts are a major contributor to these feelings of hopelessness and helplessness that accompany depression. Your thought patterns can provide a roadmap to understanding some of the causes that may have lead to these symptoms. Changing these negative thought patterns and learning new coping skills often lead to symptom relief. Sometimes post-traumatic-stress from traumatic events in childhood or adulthood cause you to feel stuck in a cycle of dispair. EMDR has proven effectve for desensitizing the trauma caused by these events.
