One of the most common reasons that people enter counseling is the experience of depression. Depression is much more common than what people know. I will help you understand the nature of your depression, what the possible causes are, and a variety of approaches that my clients have found helpful over the years. Whether your depression is recent or persistent, there are specific treatment methods that work for many people. I am also more than happy to work with other healthcare providers to make sure that you benefit from a comprehensive approach. Working with me or with a team can help to maximize your ability to get symptom relief and help you lead a happier and fulfilling life.

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 debilitating and sometimes just getting out of bed is a monumental effort. Sufferers just want to feel better and less overwhelmed by life and that's where I come in. I have extensive experience in this area and I think part of the reason my clients have shown improvements with their depressive symptoms is because we take small steps and tackle things one at a time. Negative thoughts and limiting beliefs can often contribute to depression and my approach is to explore where they come from and then replace them with healthier beliefs and patterns. Clients will be able to see the connections between their beliefs and behaviors and then be given tools on how to make changes.

Depression has many different faces. It can be triggered by sad events, like the loss of a loved one, or by seemingly happy events, like the birth of a child. Sometimes it can even be caused by influences we don’t really understand. Helping individuals identify the causes of their depression, and explore new ways to cope are at the heart of my work in this area. Often clients who begin therapy because of depression discover that what they are feeling is to past trauma, issues related to their family history or upbringing, negative thinking or limiting beliefs. With the opportunity to work through past issues in a safe, non-judgmental setting often helps people find relief from their overwhelming emotions and lift the fog of depression that has been weighing them down.

I work with a depressed nervous system by working with the body. Often we struggle to sleep, eat, or accomplish relatively simple tasks. Our bodies are stuck with the brake on. When our body thinks it is futile, out mind follows quickly thereafter and we begin to tell ourselves how pointless things are and how worthless we are. I work with the whole body to re-regulate the body to enable you to get back to a whole integrated self.

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.

Depression is a particularly cruel and insidious companion, often working in tandem with other problems to try to silence us, to steal joy and passion, and to convince us of our uselessness. Depression may try to convince us that there is one truth - our own unworthiness - to the exclusion of all others. Together we will challenge depression's version of your story.

You might be experiencing profound loss and feel isolated and alienated from those around you. Perhaps the loneliness you feel comes from a profound sense of not being fully known and understood. Because every human being and each individual's process is unique, I won't put you through a series of pre-determined exercises or fit you into some theoretical model. I work in collaboration with you to explore, discover, illumine, and heal the wounds that have kept you from expanding into the fullness of who you are meant to be.

Depression is a condition that can be insidious in that the symptoms are frequently physically and emotionally debilitating. Friends and relatives often suggest as a cure to merely "take a walk" or "think positively" in order to combat those symptoms which usually only increase feelings of shame and encourage patients to further isolate. I don't offer such simple suggestions but construct a treatment plan that includes supportive psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral techniques and integrating an evaluation for medication if indicated and desired by the patient.

Depression and Anxiety are the number one mental health issues in the United States. Most people who suffer from depression don't get help for it, instead they suffer alone. Rather medicating it away, therapy can help you understand the roots of the depression and/or anxiety and learn specific tools to find relief from it. You don't have to continue living with sadness.

You can fight depression by exploring how your present emotions relate to past experiences. These insights, gained under the guidance of a caring professional, can deliver release, increase your understanding, build self-esteem and lead to healing. In parallel, you can learn ways to examine your thoughts regarding negativity, distortions etc. This helps you create more positive and realistic thoughts, moving away from having no control towards taking control. In addition, relaxation/meditation techniques can bring you a sense of balance and peace. If poor exercise, nutrition, sleep and social support contribute to your depression, I'll guide you to make changes and keep track of them

Does your child feel, irritable, sad, withdrawn or bored most of the time? Feeling hopeless and helpless. These are some common signs of kids that may be experiencing depression. For the younger kids I use play therapy as an option and bring in art therapy techniques. Children express easily through art and play and give voice to what is hidden in their hearts and thoughts. With proper treatment and supports in place, your child can thrive and enjoy everyday activities once again.

When we feel depressed we can forget about taking care of our basic needs. Simple things like running errands or making the bed can feel insurmountable. Isolating from others can feel like the right thing to do but propel us further into a depressed space. Often we are unaware of how our mindset contributes to this state. And we try to cope by engaging in habits that increase feelings of shame and hopelessness. I can support you in your journey of coming out of the heaviness and into a lighter way of being. We can look at how shame may play a role in remaining stuck. We can look at unresolved fears and needs along with cognitive distortions that may keep you from moving forward.
