I enjoy watching depressed clients begin to identify and control the automatic thoughts that keep them stuck. Although we can't control our emotions, we can control the thoughts that create them. It takes a lot of intense practice, and requires a little homework, but the outcome is a feeling of mastery over ones emotional life. In time, feelings become subject to the client's more helpful thoughts.

Treating depression as a symptom provides the opportunity to examine, locate and treat the actual causes of the depression. I provide causal-based depression treatment and support care. Depression can be treated and the symptoms of depression can be alleviated with proper treatment. Depression is responsive to multiple forms of therapy and after identifying the cause of depression, targeted treatment can be applied to alleviate symptoms and restore emotional well-being.

Are you feeling sad, helpless, hopeless, unmotivated, and alone? Having difficulty sleeping, eating, and engaging in activities you typically enjoy? Depression feels so lonely, but it is actually a fairly common experience and a condition that is easily treated. Studies indicate that talk therapy can be an effective way to alleviate symptoms. Cognitive behavioral therapy can help you replace maladaptive thought patterns with more positive, reality-based self-statements and develop strategies to increase your energy and motivation so you can fully enjoy life. I will support you as we work together to understand and resolve your symptoms.

Depression unfortunately is becoming all too common for people from all backgrounds, walks-of-life, and circumstances. There are so many things that can affect our mood, perspective, and sense of well being. Some of the most common things I see people struggle with are finances, relationships, career, and a sense of loss or powerlessness. Whether the sadness, guilt, or emptiness you are feeling comes from one of these situations or something altogether different, there is hope and there is a way out. I welcome the opportunity to help you find your spark again, to help you put the dark feelings behind you and to experience feeling restored, optimistic, and excited about life and love.

We all go through ups and downs in our moods. Sadness is a normal reaction to life's struggles, setbacks, and disappointments. Many people use the word "Depression" to explain these kind of feelings, but depression is much more than just sadness. Whatever the symptoms, depression is different from nornal sadness in that it engulfs your day-to-day life, interfering with your ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and have fun. Getting the support you need plays a big role in lifting the fog of depression and keeping in away. On your own, it can be difficult to maintain perspective and sustain the effort required to beat depression. Please contact me for help and support.

Some established theories about what causes depression include “Anger turned inward”, “early Object Loss”, and “the inability to Grieve”. It think it is no coincidence that Depression and Anger are two of the stages of Grief which Kubler-Ross identified as a normal aspects of resolving significant loss. Normal Grief and Bereavement can become complicated by any kind of overwhelming or traumatic experience. I find that Somatic approaches such as Sensorimotor Psychotherpy are ideal for working with Depression, as it reconnects us with the deeper natural healing resources available to us when we pay attention to the wisdom of the body as it communicates on multiple levels.

Depression is usually about the past. Such as, things that have happened to you, losses you have had, things that have been said to you or by you. Bad memories get us down yet we do not have to stay in that place of sadness. Also, depression has no energy so it is difficult to do the things we need to do in order to feel better. Take the first step and make an appointment. Each step leads to another step. Depression is very treatable.

Depression can be an incredibly painful experience for some, resulting in lots of tears and overwhelming sadness and hopelessness. For others, depression can leave you feeling numb and apathetic about just about anything in life. Whatever your experience, it helps to know you don't have to go through depression alone. Therapy can provide a safe place for you to express and explore these feelings. We'll talk about possible triggers and coping skills. And, we'll begin exploring underlying factors that may be creating or contributing to this painful experience for you, which can help you implement the changes you want in your life.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

There are many causes for depression and many forms of depression, from reactive depressions to deep internal depressions. Sudden depressions as well as long lasting depressions are not to be ignored. They are serious emotional responses which can benefit extensively from appropriate counseling and therapeutic interventions. Having a caring and listening ear to talk to during a time of depressive despair can be extremely healing. It is often stated that a healthy listening relationship can heal beyond measure. There are depressions which will benefit from medical interventions along with talking interventions. In general, cared for depressions will greatly improve and most will pass.

In treating depression I use a holistic eclectic approach depending on what works for each individual. In therapy we may focus on the underlying root causes of depression perhaps stemming from childhood issues, trauma, and relationships with parents or caregivers. We may focus on cognitive behavorial techniques relating how thoughts can affect feelings and behavoir. We may focus on current interpersonal relationships and how they play a role in your depression. We may focus on other current life stressors and develop new coping strategies for dealing with stress. My goal is to support you and assist you as you climb out of depression's often times debilitating symptoms.
