Depression, just the very word feels hopeless and limited, there is a sense of internal and external collapse of the world. Yet it can also be used as a tremendous starting point to examine one's life, goals, expectations and longings, both current and historical. Depression can actually function to suppress emotional pain that has been cut off, denied and stuffed away. Depression is treatable today.

You may feel the depths of despair or merely "out-of-sorts." Depression shows up in our lives in many ways and many of us can ignore its presence as we use "busy-ness" or drinking or perfecting or … to manage our lives. But wouldn't it be great to solve the underlying issue(s) which are trying so hard to get attention through depression? Depression deprives us of joy yet it is possible to move into joy. Depression can shift by talking about what is going on, learning new perspectives and tools, and activating in small moves. I want to help you feel better.

Depression is often a result of unprocessed losses in life. Taking the time to work through those things that have not been properly grieved, can greatly lessen the amount of depression you feel. A trained professional can come alongside you and help you sort through what has accumulated and is now a burden that inhibits living a full and satisfying life. We often carry a 'preserved mood' from our childhood that represents a place we were left alone to process, without the ability to do so. We can visit those old, stuck places and help free you up to move forward in life.

How you think effects how you feel, so we will work together to alter your irrational and non-productive thoughts and behaviors.

Everyone experiences sadness at some point in their lives. How do we know if it is depression? You may be feeling sad, empty, anxious, hopeless, and/or irritable. You may feel sleepy or have difficulty in sleeping; changes in your appetite; a loss of interest in activities or trouble concentrating. Studies have shown that talk therapy can be as effective in treating mild to moderate depression as medications. In our therapy sessions together, I will help you explore and manage the feelings of defeat that you may have. In a gentle way, I will work with you to help understand some of the patterns you may have developed that are no longer serving you in a positive way.

Research shows that Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT) is the most effective treatment (sometimes in conjunction with medication), for Clinical Depression. I was originally trained in CBT. Also, I have found that other modalities, such as Voice Dialogue, Assertiveness Training, & Acceptance & Commitment Therapy can help. Finally, a Mindfulness practice helps & a good exercise & nutrition program are crucial.

With assessment as a tool, we can determine if you simply have a depressed mood due to a loss or if it is clinical depression. We find that clients experience depression sometimes as a result of shame, guilt, or anger directed toward the self. Because the best treatment for depression is medication + therapy, If we determine that you are experiencing the symptoms of clinical depression, we may refer you to obtain medication. Using therapeutic tools such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or Acceptance Commitment Therapy, we've seen clients recover, interrupting the patterns of thinking and behaving that have maintained their symptoms of depression.

Not that I do not empathize with the suffering depression brings, but I do think depression can be instructive to your lives. While many people view depression as simply a bad thing and/or something we just want to get rid of, I view depression as a unique opportunity to learn from the depression. Why is the depression there? I have not met anyone who was depressed that did not feel that way for a reason. Symptoms of depression usually tell us clues as to why the human soul is suffering, and also can also provide further clues to the solutions. Many solutions easily flow right out of finding out the "why's" and "what's" of the depression.
