Depression can be debilitating and make life feel hopeless. Many times people with depression want to get better, but don't know how. That's where a good therapist can help! My training, background, and experience can provide those suffering from depression the necessary tools and strategies to help improve mood and return to stable and healthy functioning. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming to face these challenges, but that is why I focus on taking baby steps, taking it one day at a time, and putting one foot in front of the other, and providing a lot of support and understanding. I have witnessed many clients improve and successfully fight off their depression. There is hope!

Many clients enter therapy feeling depressed or overwhelmed. After assessing for safety issues and/or the need for a psychiatric evaluation, I work with cients to understand the stressors or underlying issues (or events in the past) that have produced the depression. I work with the client to challenge their feelings of helplessness and focus on actions and beliefs that promote feelings of strength and hope. I help them redefine themselves as capable and valuable; moving from hopelessness to hopefulness, and finding the internal and external tools and strength to battle depressive, negative views of themselves that may have been burdening and depressing them for many years.

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.

People who have depression have problems thinking, acting, behaving, and even getting through the day. Sometimes, depression can feel as though one is living in a black hole, like an ever-present sense of impending doom looming over them. Some adolescents and adults who have depression don’t feel sadness at all – they may feel empty, angry, and apathetic about their world. I offer life-altering care for adolescents and adults struggling with depression and other challenges in a safe, serene, and confidential environment. I understand that depression treatment is never a one-size-fits-all approach, so I spend the necessary time evaluating and getting to know each adolescent and adult I meet in order to develop a plan of care that meets all their needs. I...(view profile to read more)

We can get so overwhelmed. You may have heard the following: "depression is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of being strong for too long." I can help you learn to cope, give you that outside view of what can help you live in a way that is peaceful, meaningful, and purposeful. If you have been suffering from depression, I know that you have tried all you know to feel better. It is too difficult to overcome without professional help and I look forward to helping you get on a positive path to a life of contentment.

I have worked for many years with people who are suffering from depression. Depression can manifest in a number of ways- lack of interest in activities that previously made you happy, low energy, a decrease or increase in appetite, a sense of hopelessness, substance usage etc. When one experiences sadness which is pervasive it can be very troubling and frightening. One's outlook on life when depressed can seem very bleak and as thought it may never lift. However, talking about ones feelings about feeling depressed with a skilled caring professional is one way to help to start alleviate these feelings.

When we feel depressed we can forget about taking care of our basic needs. Simple things like running errands or making the bed can feel insurmountable. Isolating from others can feel like the right thing to do but propel us further into a depressed space. Often we are unaware of how our mindset contributes to this state. And we try to cope by engaging in habits that increase feelings of shame and hopelessness. I can support you in your journey of coming out of the heaviness and into a lighter way of being. We can look at how shame may play a role in remaining stuck. We can look at unresolved fears and needs along with cognitive distortions that may keep you from moving forward.
