Depression is a complex condition that involves changes in mood, behavior and thinking. It can effect our most important personal and work related relationships. Physically, it can interrupt our sleep, appetite and energy level. Sometimes, a medical solution is needed and other times a psychological approach is best while other times a combination of both is the optimal treatment. As a psychotherapist with 32 years experience, I have helped many people overcome their depression through proven treatments that change the patterns of thinking, acting, and relating that tend to maintain depressive moods. Psychotherapy can greatly benefit the person seeking relief from this condition.

Clinical depression is not something that someone "gets over" or can manage on their own. It is real, painful and harmful. I will provide you the tools to help you overcome this debilitating condition. We work on stopping and changing those negative thoughts that can spin out of control, and also how to change some behaviors, such as being more active and social. It's difficult but we can do it together.

Depression can be debilitating and seldom goes away by itself. It is often a result of built-up feelings of hurt and anger that have not been expressed outwardly or have turned toward the self. It is unfortunate that many people go through their lives experiencing depression when something can be done about it. When depressed, because we feel lethargic and lack energy, it is often accompanied by feelings of helplessness and hopelessness - a feeling that one can never escape it. There is hope however, and together we can help get the joy that life has been missing back. Feel free to call my office for a free 15 minute telephone consultation at 800-474-1445.

The benefits of a successful treatment of depression include reductions in the severity and frequency of depressive episodes. The capacity to reframe depression as an experience of growth into wisdom, leads to recovery. This can include the return of the ability to enjoy life, greater clarity of thought, improved ability to relax, and greater social engagement. I practice a relational, psychodynamic therapy informed by psychoanalysis and Gestalt.

Depression is often a state of confusion resulting from the lack of permission or guidance in processing difficult situations. An opportunity to work through past trauma can help lift depression so there is a greater emotional freedom to move forward and make choices in life. This support to process needs to be kind and understanding while providing a bit of a "push" to find the courage to face whatever scary feelings might be hidden away.

Depression has many different faces. It can be triggered by sad events, like the loss of a loved one, or by seemingly happy events, like the birth of a child. Sometimes it can even be caused by influences we don’t really understand. Helping individuals identify the causes of their depression, and explore new ways to cope are at the heart of my work in this area. Often clients who begin therapy because of depression discover that what they are feeling is to past trauma, issues related to their family history or upbringing, negative thinking or limiting beliefs. With the opportunity to work through past issues in a safe, non-judgmental setting often helps people find relief from their overwhelming emotions and lift the fog of depression that has been weighing them down.

Depression often results in a person believing that the only position to take is one of helplessness and hopelessness. Friends and family often cannot understand why their loved one cannot take action. However, to the person affected by depression, ruminating is the action they are taking which feels just as valid as any other type of action. Negative memories and negative interpretation of events dominante. It is difficult to accept the unknown and they under-estimate their ability to cope. Fatalistic beliefs, ambiguity and unfocused attention add to the overwhelming power of depression. In therapy, I help clients accept the unknown, focus attention, and transform the critical voice.

Depression should be seen as normal in that all of us experience depression periodically. Too much depression is discouraging and can be treated. Find out of your depression is "normal" or clinically troubling. Relief from depression is available for most depressed persons. Often depressed persons are understimuated with not enough fun or activity. On the other hand depression can be seen as the opposite of "expression" where thoughts, feelings and needs are not sufficiently acknowledge and expressed.
