Depression can manifest itself in different ways. It's most well-known personality takes the form of tearfulness, isolation, low self esteem, hopelessness, and negative self-talk. But did you know that depression can also show up as irritability, patterns of avoidance, aggression, and anxiety? Because of both the more popular face of depression and the stigma attached to it, people encounter difficulty in reaching out for and receiving help. It can be a really hopeless place to feel stuck. I will help you to come to a place of understanding your depression and you will learn tools to abate and manage the symptoms.

Depression definitely has physiological components that are present because of our unique chemistry we come into the world with. But a more significant part of what causes depression is emotional problems. Our nervous system and our psyche's can be very sensitive to things that happen to us. So much so that we feel overwhelmed by these experiences. When this happen our psyche and our instinctual survival system will "depress" these feelings and experiences to try to protect us from the pain and overwhelm they can cause. This is why we have depression. So an important part of how I help you with your depression is by creating an environment where you can gently explore and heal the pains

Are you feeling hopeless and looking at your life negatively most of the time? Have you lost interest in most of your formerly pleasant activities? Are you isolating yourself and feeling alienated from loved ones and friends. Are you constantly fatigued and wanting to sleep all the time? Do you have thoughts about death? I help clients decrease their suffering from depression by working together on several fronts: identify and work through current and past experiences and issues that lead to the depression; examine and modify the “depressed thinking” that tends to maintain the overwhelming symptoms of depression; develop coping skills to reduce depressive symptoms and get back to living.

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.

I have been working with people struggling with depression for the last 17 years. Using a lense of mindfulness and meditation, I help people to see past the symptoms of depression in order to ask "why is this here? What is my higher self trying to tell me?" I also incorporate cognitive therapy where appropriate, in an effort to decrease a client's negative thinking.

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.

Depression can be experienced in a number of different ways. It can feel like an overwhelming sense of sadness or grief, which can make it difficult to get out of bed and carry on your daily functions. It can also emerge as irritability or even boredom. Depression can cloud your judgment and can make being in relationships challenging. Depression can also be confusing, particularly if you don't know what caused it. In psychotherapy, I can support you in discovering insights that can help you find relief. I can support you in finding ways to better cope with your feelings and process whatever old internal wounds may be lingering, which has led to your depression.

Depression is often a deadening that comes from grief and anger that is buried inside, because of feelings of powerlessness about expressing them. Together we trace the sources of hopeless and worthless feelings in your life, and rework your understanding of what caused them. Often people are mired in guilt or shame when they are depressed, and these feelings can even come from childhood sources. I help you to express the feelings you never had a chance to, were afraid or ashamed to, always at your own pace. As your attitudes toward yourself shift, and your held feelings are expressed in session, you find you are enlivened.

If you are reading this, and wondering if you might be depressed, you probably are. Even if one is used to it, depression sucks the life energy out of a person, dampening their ability to concentrate, to be creative or have hope for a good future. Depression is different from the blues, which may last just a day or two. Depression can be mild, moderate or severe, but left unchecked, it can become chronic. Please call or email me so I can help you to assess where you are right now in terms of the feelings that you are having that are holding you back from a meaningful, productive and happy life.

Our understanding of depression and its origins has deepened in recent years, especially with the much more nuanced knowledge we now have about the influences of both our early lives and neurobiology in shaping how we experience and respond to stress and adversity. If you are depresses, it is important to understand whether it is a response to situational, and possibly temporary circumstances, a biological tendency, a response to long-term trauma or a combination of triggers. If you wish to explore how I could help with your particular situation, please call me at 415-533-9724.
