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.

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.

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

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.

When we are depressed, we feel hopeless and unable to enjoy the things we most love in life. I draw from cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative and mindfulness based approaches. I believe we all have an innate ability to heal when we tap into our strengths and change the negative perceptions of ourselves and the world around us. You do not have to suffer. It is possible to get relief.

Depression can set in when our emotions or negative thought patterns become overwhelming and too much to hold. Pain or hardship often is too much to hold alone. With my help, we can start to open to emotion, bring a wise awareness to thought patterns, and to find aliveness again. If we can make friends with our emotions, stop fighting them, and to recognize their purpose in regulating the nervous system or showing us what matters to us, tremendous resilience can be found on the other side.

Struggling to live life with overwhelming sadness and apathy is often miserable. Depression can take over and become all consuming - unless you get help. A safe place to talk can begin easing the emotional pain controlling your life. Through exploring issues and emotions we can begin to identify and work through possible underlying causes. We can then begin to identify strengths and resources to start the process of moving you forward and out of the depths of your darkness. You can attain a more satisfying and productive life - one in which getting out of bed is not the biggest challenge of your day. Make that life saving phone call today and I will walk through this with you.

Emotional or physical pain sends us the signal that something is wrong, its critical that we pay attention and hear what it has to say. We spontaneously brace against physical and emotional threats to our survival, yet ongoing resistance to the pain and our circumstances cause further pain. To avoid feelings of discomfort many attempt to numb their distress or tune it out, temporary fixes that will not end the suffering. I will support you in giving voice to what needs to be healed as you discover your individual path to freedom from ongoing depression.

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.

Are you feeling down, depressed, having negative thoughts, and feeling stuck, out of energy? Depression affects most people, to some degree, at some point in life. Seeking help is enormously important because the cycle of depression needs to be interrupted. When I work with depression, I focus on the interaction between the thoughts that we tell ourselves, our day-to-day behaviors and our mood. This is called CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), and is the treatment of choice for depression. I also use positive, strength/values based interventions from the field of Positive Psychology, which has also been found to be a strong intervention. Break the cycle, reach out.
