Depression can zap you of all kinds of joy in your life. But it doesn't have to.... I work with clients who suffer from depression and the work is to get your story out, process what is going on then create ways to manage the emotion better. Mindfulness and positive thinking can help offset the debilitating symptoms of depression. The worst thing a person can do with depression is keep it a secret. Don't keep it sealed up inside, get help and talk about what is going on in your life.

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.

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.

Depression is more than having the blues. When you have depression, you may feel like getting up in the morning, brushing your teeth, or getting dressed all feel like too much. Sometimes life even feels so hard that killing yourself seems like a reasonable solution. Though medication may help, it is often not the whole story. Depression often masks other emotions that have been buried, sometimes from childhood, sometimes because a person was taught that only "positive" emotions were acceptable. Learn to uncover what is causing your depression and regain your aliveness so that you can once again, or perhaps for the first time, feel that you are living a full and productive life.

Depression counseling involves assessing and making appropriate changes in the physical, emotional, and relational aspects of a client's life that are contributing to depressed mood. I work with clients to both remedy the underlying causes and their resulting cognitions, and the lifestyle habits that hinder their recovery. Often it is appropriate to work in conjunction with medical professionals who may suggest medications and/or nutritional supplements to correct the biochemical aspects of depressive episodes. Clients benefit most when their treatment is comprehensive and avoids dealing solely with symptom relief.

I suffered from significant depression early in my life for decades. At first I thought I had little control over it and that I had inherited it from my mother. Eventually, I realized that depression is largely encouraged by faulty thinking patterns. Challenging thought patterns using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps change the way one views his or her participation in the world. Also, focusing on the positive aspects of situations instead of negative aspects gives us a new lens in which to view our world. Sometimes we just have to allow depression to pass, choosing to view it as if we were watching a TV show, instead of getting sucked into it for an unknown length of time.
