I believe that our beliefs affect how we feel and that our belifs come from how we think. To simplify it, attitude truley makes a difference. Our thinking or our beliefs, affect how we feel. Change ourthinking and change the feelings. We take a look at where these beliefs originated, examine whether they are distorted or not, and ask ourselves what positive, true thought do we need to have instead. This is known as Cognitive behavioral therapy as it involves cognition changes along with behavioral changes. The successs CBT for depression has been vey successful in my practice.

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.

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.

The root of depression is complex. There is probably a genetic predisposition and may often accompany anxiety and trauma. Some difficult triggers can include the death of a loved one, divorce, illness, or having a challenging relationship with alcohol and other substances. It is not uncommon for life transitions that on the surface appear positive (weddings, pregnancy, children going to college, retirement) to trigger feelings of depression. You can find relief and healing through psychotherapy. Together, we can identify the triggers to get to the source of the suffering, identify short and long term solutions to bring about a sense of relief, and explore different avenues to help.

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.

To the extent that depression is symptomatic of underlying trauma, I use an integrative approach to treating the emotional, cognitive, and somatic ramifications of trauma. Talk therapy is incredibly useful in helping change your thoughts, but you cannot talk your way out of feeling; you can only feel your way out of feeling. When depression is robbing you of the ability to feel - emotion, sensation, and/or sexual arousal - it can be difficult for your cognitive shifts to manifest positive and sustainable change. Working through the body and nervous system, in support of changes in thought processes and belief systems, can lead to the shift you've been wanting.
