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.

It can often seem like society expects us to be happy and positive at all times, that any admission of sadness or a loss of motivation, energy, or engagement with life is a personal failure. But Depression isn't a personal failure, and it is also more than just "feeling sad". If you find yourself down in the hole of disconnection, surrounded by a fog that is interfering with your life and relationships, you need a hand to help you climb out. A trained therapist understands the mechanics of depression and can help you understand it and find strategies to make your way up and out of it, and back into the light. Please contact me so we can begin to work on this process together.

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.

Depression can be the overwhelming mountain and clouds that seems impossible to overcome. Being able to have a sense of hope in times of depression is essential in overcoming the challenges, the cloudiness, the lack of clarity that comes with depression. Counseling can help with that. Counseling can provide tools to help you overcome depression, and can provide you with an individualized plan to make way and overcome the overwhelming tower or mountain that depression can be. Depression removes our energy, and overcoming depression can be a helpful way to regain energy, hope, and a purpose for life again. Let's work towards overcoming your depression together through therapy and interventions

Sometimes "talk therapy" alone can relieve depression and most clients find it to be helpful. I do utilize cognitive therapy when dealing with depression because our thoughts have a great deal to do with our feelings and there is evidence that this treatment approach to depression can be quite effective. When necessary, I will provide a psychiatric referral for an evaluation to determine whether or not you are a candidate for medication.

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.

Depression is a complicated, but debilitating experience. Many factors may contribute to your depression, and a multi-faceted approach is often necessary to address physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual contributing factors. Sometime tackling depression means processing unresolved memories or situations; at other times the best approach involves the here-and-now. Changes in one area often effect changes in another, so the important thing is to dive in with courage to work toward change. I know how hard this can be when suffering depression, and the fact that you are here researching help is a great first step. Let's work together at developing a plan that re-empowers you.

Depression can limit a person from thriving. These limitations can be be various and may include experiencing life as hard to get motivated or even wanting to stop existing. Thoughts of suicide are common, but not existing and not thriving can be overcome; depression can be managed. Therapy for depression will reveal the basis for your feelings of hopelessness and helplessness and help you to manage these feelings rather than be managed by them. You don't have to let depression control you. You can, with the help of therapy, manage depression so that you can thrive. Like waking up from a bad dream, you can experience a new life where you are not ruled by depression.

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.

There are two emotions which can be utilized in the process of healing from trauma: anger and sadness. Sadness can be a very effective vehicle for healing. The only problem with sadness is that it is such a short leap from there to depression. Sadness heals; depression does not. Depression can keep a person stuck in the same place for years without any progress. You must be very careful not to fall into depression when you decide to explore your feelings about the negative experiences of your life. Unfortunately, many people find the difference between sadness and depression to be obscure at best, and they often vacillate between the two. We encourage you to be very careful of depression becau....

My philosophical work on the nature of hope and despair is particularly well suited for working with clients suffering from depression. While my explicit aim is cultivating and creating a space of genuine hope, I also believe it is essential to recognize the reasons for despair and to diligently work through those circumstances. Compassionate understanding and patience facilitate hope.

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 .
