Having depression goes beyond normal feelings of sadness or having the "blues." We might find ourselves losing interest in things that we once enjoyed, we can lose motivation to put one foot in front of the other or we might just feel constantly sad or down. Depression can occur over a couple of weeks to even years. Just know that you don't have to feel this way any longer and there are many ways that we can work together to improve your mood and get you back to feeling hopeful about your future.

Depression should be seen as normal in that all of us experience depression periodically. Too much depression is discouraging and can be treated. Find out of your depression is "normal" or clinically troubling. Relief from depression is available for most depressed persons. Often depressed persons are understimuated with not enough fun or activity. On the other hand depression can be seen as the opposite of "expression" where thoughts, feelings and needs are not sufficiently acknowledge and expressed.

Gaining a proper diagnosis and treatment plan with help you on your way to recovery. I work with clients who perhaps can't put their finger on what is really causing their constant low mood.

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.

Most clients suffer from some form of depression, due to work, marriage, family, or addiction problems. First if the symptoms are sever we recommend a consultation from a medical doctor. If the client suffers from insomnia, difficulty concentrating, anhedonia, or dramatic weight changes , we strongly suggest the client meet with their medical doctor. Also many people will call because they are struggling with depression, and sometimes it is due to an underlying medical condition, such as anemia, vitamin D deficiency, mono, thyroid condition etc. So we ask clients to request blood test be ordered by their doctor. After the vegetative symptoms are assessed and treated, then we proceed .

I practice a type of therapy for depression called Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which research has shown to be especially effective with depressive disorders. Using CBT, we work together to discover underlying beliefs (which we call cognitive distortions) that are causing or contributing to your depressive symptoms. Once identified, we then use a variety of techniques to help you correct those thinking patterns that are causing you difficulty. We measure progress constantly so that we can try new techniques if needed, to help you feel better.

Depression is not something that exists "in" you. It is something you experience in a context. When we are out of connection with others we can become depressed. My approach to healing depression is not to simple help people get "over" their depression but by helping people move in and through it. That means, feeling into the pain and potential danger of feeling the feelings that are in you. When we are not alone in our feelings they can change.

Depression presents itself uniquely in each individual. Further, in working with children and young adults, they can too often be misdiagnoses as their behavioral presentation is labeled as disruptive and oppositional. Having a clear understanding of depression impacts the behavioral outlook of the individual is pivotal on developing an effective plan in addressing these concerns. By working with my clients and families in understanding the depression we are often able to shape the environment in which the depression exists. Joining this with cognitive behavioral and evidenced based interventions, we are then able to more effectively address these symptoms in our pursuit of long term goals.

In our life journey we inevitably come across a period of darkness, depression or lack of motivation. Sometimes it is triggered by an event or failed relationship and sometimes we come to the realization that much of our lives has already been lived in this gloominess. Through the counseling process you can share what you've truly been experiencing and explore the depths of your depression in a private, safe environment all while coming to an understanding of what it means to be good to yourself. And in turn others.
