If the people in your life haven't ever experienced depression (which is different than being depressed), they can't understand why you can't get over it, move on with your life, or do the things that you used to do. Some people even get into "cheerleading" (c'mon-- you can do it!). That's why I work to understand your depression and help you to manage the feelings of helplessness, despair, and frustration related to depression--little by little, day by day, you might start to get better under my care as I would do my best to understand what you're going through.

Life can be very stressful these days. Cell phones, I Pads, smart phones, e mail, social networks all are fun and wonderful but they also bring with them higher expectations from work, family, friends and even ourselves. Our world keeps speeding up and the pressures can be great. Depression as an outgrowth of the stresses and pressures that surround us is becoming increasing common and a part of each of our lives. Most of us will experience depression at one or more points in our lives. Medication can help but is usually not the long term answer. We will work to identify the problems, find solutions, set goals and work toward minimizing the causes and find more peace and calm.

People who have depression have problems thinking, acting, behaving, and even getting through the day. Sometimes, depression can feel as though one is living in a black hole, like an ever-present sense of impending doom looming over them. Some adolescents and adults who have depression don’t feel sadness at all – they may feel empty, angry, and apathetic about their world. I offer life-altering care for adolescents and adults struggling with depression and other challenges in a safe, serene, and confidential environment. I understand that depression treatment is never a one-size-fits-all approach, so I spend the necessary time evaluating and getting to know each adolescent and adult I meet in order to develop a plan of care that meets all their needs. I...(view profile to read more)

Depression can feel like a lead weight that you carry around with you day in and day out. It can be hard to remember that you ever felt better or to believe that you will ever feel good again. One of the most valuable things that therapy can do for depressed people is to inspire hope, to restore the confidence that one can find or recover a positive outlook on life. We do this by exploring the origins of your depression and putting your current feelings into perspective. You'll be encouraged to find your strengths and inner resources and harness them to pull you through to a more lively and empowered state of mind.

Discover the cause of depression and what to do about it. Many times people feel depressed because they feel that their life should look different than it does in the moment. Dr. Eris Huemer joins with her clients by helping them explore a preferred future for themselves. She takes her clients through a process that helps them change by constructing solutions rather than dwelling on problems. The emphasis here is on finding solutions to current problems and focusing on future wellness rather than past hurts. This is not to say that the past is ignored but the main emphasis is on teaching new skills and creating the life that you want and deserve.

Are you feeling sad and hopeless? Have you lost interest in previously enjoyable activities? Perhaps you feel irritable most of the time and are not sure why. Are you experiencing a change in appetite, frequent headaches or withdrawing from others? These symptoms could point to depression. Depression takes many forms and without treatment can often worsen. In therapy I assess your symptoms as well as your family and medical history. I help you identify your thoughts and get to the source of self-defeating beliefs that may contribute to unwanted feelings. I also promote the practice of actions that will encourage positive change. Don’t suffer alone. There is hope and change is possible.

Depression is stigmatized, leaving sufferers feeling isolated. Lack of education regarding depression causes others to assume its under the person's control; when often there are biological factors blocking healing. Callous terms like "Snap out of it" leave the sufferer feeling all the more hopeless, because they can't snap out of it any more than a diabetic can snap out of diabetes without medical attention or treatment. Depression can be the result of a depletion of significant hormones in the brain. The Word of God is a powerful tool I use with clients to stifle the negative cognitions of depression. I refer clients for medical intervention when depression is not responding to therapy.

Depression can be a lonely place. A place where you are surrounded by your darkest and deepest thoughts. A place that feels isolated. A place that prevents you from moving forward, getting out of bed, and having a fulfilling life. Depression can become so powerful that instead of having hope, you can become consumed with feelings of sadness and hopelessness. In therapy, I will make you connect your emotional and physical pain into your depression and teach you self care, though stopping techniques, and relaxation techniques in order to overcome the symptoms. You and I will work together to work through your past traumas you have experienced growing up.

CBT is a particularly effective treatment for depression, both as a combined approach with medication and as a stand alone treatment. Participating in CBT therapy for depression can help you restructure negative thought patterns and get out of negative cycles of thinking. Changing the way you think can help you interpret your environment and interactions with others in a more effective and positive way, improving the way you feel about yourself and helping improve your relationships with others. It may also help you recognize things that may be contributing to the depression and help you start doing things that lead to a reduction of symptoms and feelings of meaningful happiness.

My belief is that depression is born from unexplored feelings intersecting with past and present life events. I gently guide clients to deeply explore core belliefs and emotions that are impacting how they view themselves and the world around them. As we challenge the myth and mystery of these feelings and beliefs, a new way of moving through the world begins to unfold and recovery can begin.
