Depression can feel as though a deep fog has fallen over your familiar life so that nothing feels clear, it is hard to think and all you want to do is withdraw into an empty room. People may tell you that you can "just snap out of it", not realizing that depression is truly an illness. Extended stress, a sudden crisis or even a genetic tendency for depression will deplete the biochemicals you need in your brain. That is why the best treatment for depression is medication to build up the needed biochemicals and 'talk therapy' to understand what issues in your life were behind this illness. This new understanding of old blocks in your life will allow you to move ahead more freely.

Does life seem bleak right now? Have you lost interest in the things you used to enjoy? Do you feel sad most of the time? Do you have little to look forward to, and a lot you’d prefer not to look back on? When you are convinced that things will never get better no matter what, you are depressed. I can give you tools and teach you how to use them to dig yourself out of the emotional ditch you’re in. It is possible to feel hope again when you know how.

Depression can feel overwhelming, debilitating and just plain no fun. Sometimes there is a clear reason for depression such as a loss or a difficult transition. Sometimes the reason is unclear. Whatever your situation, my goal as your therapist will be to help you better understand the source of the pain and use concrete tools and skills to help you overcome it. Using a variety of methods, we can find ways to help you feel a renewed sense of purpose, confidence, and joy in your life. I offer EMDR therapy which is a highly-researched, effective form of therapy that often creates positive change in fewer sessions than talk therapy alone. Contact me for more details.

Depression feels like walking through mud. We lose ourselves and wonder if we will ever be found again. Often depression is a result of unexpressed negative emotions (which we were never allowed to safely express in our family of origin - so we swallowed it instead). I am very comfortable with the shame and humility that the human condition sometimes hands us - and I can sit with my clients while they work through unexpressed sadnesses - and ultimately find joy in their lives.

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.

Clients usually experience a progressive decline in mood, which can impact their emotions, the quality of their sleep, relationships (they may even begin to withdraw from others), and have persistent negative thoughts. Many clients prefer to explore viable holistic and integrative strategies before trying medication. In our collaboration, we will design a plan to explore possible options, strategies to strengthen effective coping mechanisms, and identify a plan to enhance the opportunity for recovery.

Depression can be painful for the person suffering from it as well as those closest to them. When we are depressed, previously enjoyable activities can appear meaningless. We lose interest in connecting with others (often exacerbating symptoms). Furthermore, it can feel as though there is "no point" to life. We all have periods of time when we feel less than ideal, but depression is severe and enduring. Counseling provides an atmosphere where it is safe to discuss these feelings.

Symptoms of depression can leave one feeling lost and alone. Counseling can help you gain your bearings and find your way back to normalcy. Often our thoughts are a major contributor to these feelings of hopelessness and helplessness that accompany depression. Your thought patterns can provide a roadmap to understanding some of the causes that may have lead to these symptoms. Changing these negative thought patterns and learning new coping skills often lead to symptom relief. Sometimes post-traumatic-stress from traumatic events in childhood or adulthood cause you to feel stuck in a cycle of dispair. EMDR has proven effectve for desensitizing the trauma caused by these events.
