Many people struggle with depression, men and women as well as children and adolescents. Depression needs to be assessed for severity and treated appropriately. The standard of care may include medication and talk therapy involving Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which can be very effective for most clients. Depression often masks frustration and anger or severe negative thoughts which can be explored in treatment. Most people benefit from talk therapy and find relief. Other family members may also be included in the treatment if that is appropriate.

I use several methods for helping you overcome depression. I support you in maintaining safety. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I help you to identify unhelpful thoughts and learn how to restructure your thoughts. I help you identify root causes of your depression and find ways to reduce their impact by replacing them with activities and relationships that support you in increased positive mood and personal responsibility. Depression can be comorbid with other issues you may be struggling with and I take a holistic approach to help you address what is needed in order to become a more fulfilled, and satisfied individual.

Depression often times is a symptom of stuffing ones emotions for years and finally the emotions shutdown. Sometimes depression is a reaction to a current loss. Identifying why the depression exists and what the individual is "truely" reacting to is key to undoing the patterns of depression. Often times, an individual has never focused on their internal feelings to allow themselves to feel what they feel. Therapy becomes an avenue to identify and resolve issues which to date have been buried and contribute to having depression in the first place. If depression is the result of a current trauma, addressing the issues can again reduce the degree of depression. Medication can be helpful.

Clients usually experience a progressive decline in mood, which can impact their emotions, the quality of their sleep, relationships (they may even begin to withdraw from others), and have persistent negative thoughts. Many clients prefer to explore viable holistic and integrative strategies before trying medication. In our collaboration, we will design a plan to explore possible options, strategies to strengthen effective coping mechanisms, and identify a plan to enhance the opportunity for recovery.

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.
