Maybe you're depressed and nobody even knows your feeling that way; or everyone thinks they know, and they're telling you how to get over it, and to hurry. That advice usually backfires, and makes you feel worse. Recovery from depression is possible, but takes its own time. I am not afraid of sitting with you and those bleak, empty, hopeless feelings, whether you can talk about them or not. While I can certainly give advice if that's useful, I'd rather help you understand what's causing your depression and help you feel through it in your own way - the way it actually works. Gradually, with some ups and downs, you can get a better grip on your life and relationships, and feel better.

Depression can cause experiences of lonliness, sadness, agitation, tearfulness, hopelessness, and decreased motivation. Together we can work to identify potential causes of depression symptoms and how these symptoms may be impacting your life. In most cases a core belief about ourself or the world can cause depression to persist. Some of these beliefs can include but are not limited to "I'm not good enough", "noone cares about me", "it's not safe to express my emotions", and "bad things always happen to me". Taking a collaborative approach we will incorporate both self compassion strategies and tangible skills based interventions as a way to work on improving your mood.

Change is inevitable. Life is going to happen whether we want it to or not. This is not to say that it's easy. Some of the most difficult experiences of our life ask us to let go in some way, either of a past way of thinking or doing. When we’re able to allow what is, we are given an opportunity to replace the old way of being with something new. If we can't let go, we sometimes turn our feelings inward and can create the feeling of depression. Depression is defined by some as anger turned inward. Know that depression is helped with counseling much more than it is with medication. Don't let inertia keep you from getting help with your depression. I can help you move through the feelings.

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.

Depression is like a huge weight on you or an inundating black darkness. It robs your world of light and color as it weighs you down, sapping your vital energy. Medication can sometimes help, but it does to provide the whole answer because it does not touch the roots of depression, which dare hidden in your emotions. Depression is a natural response to unintegrated emotional pain. This is where I can help. I am direct, yet gentle, warm and respectful. As we work together the process unfolds. My gift is in helping you to have new emotional experiences which move you through the painful feelings hidden under your depression and back into a vital engagement with your life.

Psychotherapy can be used to treat a depression. Therapy can help lift the depression, sometimes forever, sometimes for a period of time. Therapy works by addressing some of the causes of depression. Those things that seem to be related to depression include: difficult relationships in the past and present, traumatic experiences from the recent and distant past, emotions that are unexpressed in healthy ways, and ways of thinking that were learned from those around you, from both childhood and adulthood. The problem here is that if you are depressed, you may not feel like you deserve treatment. Your depression may have increased a sense of hopelessness, and low self-esteem. I

I work with a depressed nervous system by working with the body. Often we struggle to sleep, eat, or accomplish relatively simple tasks. Our bodies are stuck with the brake on. When our body thinks it is futile, out mind follows quickly thereafter and we begin to tell ourselves how pointless things are and how worthless we are. I work with the whole body to re-regulate the body to enable you to get back to a whole integrated self.

Depression can rob your life of pleasure and meaning. It can become difficult to do things that could make you feel better. Instead, you'll often do the things that make you feel worse, like eating or drinking too much and avoiding the people you care about.  We believe that your depression has meaning.  Whether the cause is a long-term issue or a sudden crisis, or a feeling that there's more to life, depression has something to teach you. Our goal is to help you understand what's going on and help you regain a life of joy and meaning.

Depression or sadness is a basic an universal feeling that has many causes. Some people are depressed due to stressful, difficult situations or relationships, feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope leading to a depressive shut down. Other times depression is a reaction to being stuck in ones life, not seeing a clear path or way to move forward. Sometimes depression stems from childhood abuse or neglect, often producing feelings of being defeated in life with low self esteem. All too often people seek a quick fix for depression using antidepressant drugs, which only mask the true nature of the problem. I aim to help you get to the true cause of your depression, teaching life skills.
