We now know that depression is a natural response to extreme distress and feelings of helplessness. It's an instinctive slowing down of physiological responses to wait for a time when things will be better. In the modern world, we are exposed to stresses never anticipated by our ancestors. Working with the underlying stress can help ease this natural response and speed the return to normal life. EMDR therapy can often be very helpful. Medication is not always necessary and when it is useful, the amount can often be reduced with therapy.

Depression can be overwhelming and cause people to feel hopeless and helpless. Unfortunately depression may not subside without some kind of intervention. The good news is that once someone is able to develop the understanding of their depression and he/she can learn what coping skills work best for him/her, they will be able to use those in the future should the depression ever return.

Oftentimes, if you scratch the surface of depression, you will find loss, anger, despair, a lack of meaning or purpose, a profound sense of disappointment with others, with oneself, with the way that one's life has been lived. These are the issues that I really try to get to with my clients that come in suffering from depression. I often find that depression is connected to childhood experiences of emotional neglect or inattention. I help my clients articulate and grieve these early experiences and offer them an attuned and empathic relationship that helps them to feel seen and validated. This helps them to see and to value themselves, which opens them up to invest more fully in their life.

Depression definitely has physiological components that are present because of our unique chemistry we come into the world with. But a more significant part of what causes depression is emotional problems. Our nervous system and our psyche's can be very sensitive to things that happen to us. So much so that we feel overwhelmed by these experiences. When this happen our psyche and our instinctual survival system will "depress" these feelings and experiences to try to protect us from the pain and overwhelm they can cause. This is why we have depression. So an important part of how I help you with your depression is by creating an environment where you can gently explore and heal the pains

Depression can have many different sources: isolation, unresolved loss, unconscious anger turned against the self, feelings of shame, inadequacy and low self-esteem. It is sometimes experienced as a kind of deadness or emptiness, an absence of feeling. Therapy offers you the opportunity to get to the bottom of what is troubling you, to find your way to solutions. By talking through your issues and feelings you know what you need to do to change and you have support for taking the steps to make the change happen. Everyone needs to feel heard and understood, to feel empathy for their suffering, in order to do this. I offer this empathy, support and guidance to you.

If you're stuck, it can feel like your own mind is against you, pulling you down into a swamp. It usually has to do with imagining that you are helpless - and while it might seem that you ARE helpless, it's really important to get in to talk to a therapist to get past that idea, and get moving forward again. Let's break it down into manageable pieces and get you activated and engaged in life.

As a relationship therapist with over 30 years experience I help people who suffer from depression connected with relationship difficulties. When you become overwhelmed with painful emotions such as sadness, fear, hurt or humiliation, a common response is to retreat into depression. In therapy you can learn more effective responses, experience your whole range of emotions, and be more fully alive and connected with the people who matter to you.

Depression (and anxiety) are normal responses to painful environments. Are finding it difficult to be motivated? Are you lower energy than you should be? Is it hard to get out of bed? Do you get irritable for no reason at times? If so, you may be suffering from depression. I attack depression from two angles. One strategy is using CBT strategies to help you manage some of your symptoms. I also use EMDR, attachment based psychotherapy, and body / nervous system informed strategies to help you transform some of the underlying brain mis-wiring that is there from your past. Don't find somebody that just stares at you and lets you continue to be depressed. Let's do something about this!
