Depression counseling involves assessing and making appropriate changes in the physical, emotional, and relational aspects of a client's life that are contributing to depressed mood. I work with clients to both remedy the underlying causes and their resulting cognitions, and the lifestyle habits that hinder their recovery. Often it is appropriate to work in conjunction with medical professionals who may suggest medications and/or nutritional supplements to correct the biochemical aspects of depressive episodes. Clients benefit most when their treatment is comprehensive and avoids dealing solely with symptom relief.

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.

I utilize a method of creating a symptom profile to get to the unique presentation of your depression, creating a baseline of symptoms. I have had good success in creating a sustainable positive change by using DBT skills, which include learning how to read your body and also how to re-direct intrusive negative thoughts, often replacing destructive old patterns.

Each person experiences being stuck, and unable to get out of the deep whole they are in. While most people are able to some how pull themselves out, some individuals are not. I work with individuals, and some times their families, to being positive changes to the core beliefs that have created the deep tracks that keep some people stuck in depression. Understanding why you are depressed can help, and knowing the steps to build a strong working foundation of support and the ability to get "unstuck" is the major focus of my therapy for helping people who feel stuck and depressed. Increasing qulaity of life is part of treatment, along with understanding and recognizing choices beyond the past.
