Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

Understanding that there are different types of depression, different levels of severity, and various causes, I work with each individual to assess what kind of depression they are experiencing and possible causes. Often anxiety and depression occur together. Along with providing a safe, non-judgmental place and therapeutic relationship for people to talk about their depressive feelings/emotions and experience, I also utilize research-based therapies that have proven effective for treating depression and anxiety.

I am an Emotionally Focused therapist (EFT). Research shows that those who suffer from depression actually benefit quite well from EFT therapy. Depression can be very isolating. The pain of isolation is inherently traumatizing. We are meant to be in relationship with others. I work with indiviudals and couples who struggle with depression by strengthening their relationship so that there is a deeper felt sense that the person who is suffering from depression can experience that they do matter, that they are important, that they are cared for and loved by another. This helps create a more secure attachment to self and others which is therapeutic and needed for healing.

Depression is accompanied by sadness or despair. It can be extremely difficult to endure, especially since Christians are taught to "count it all joy." In some cases, there may be a chemical imbalance which will require medical intervention. However, having someone walk this painful journey with you as a guide and provide a safe place to share the pain has proven helpful.

If you are experiencing sadness that just won't go away, or a hopelessness that is immobilizing you, it may be clinical depression. There are a variety of very effective ways to treat depression, from cognitive therapy, exercise, nutritional supplements, biblio-therapy, or medication. The least effective is to get a medication from your primary physician and wait. I will help you plan a full intervention that will give you the earliest relief possible. Whether your depression is mild or crippling, I know how to take care of you. Sometimes, just getting to be listened to brings new hope and some relief. But we will do whatever it takes to bring you to health again.

All our feelings begin with thoughts, just like depression. I provide a safe non-judgmental place to therapeutically process life experiences and negative thoughts that lead us to feel depressed, unloved and unworthy. We used to think that increasing a strong self-esteem fights depression. Studies now show that self-esteem can be harmful. Instead, we are now learning that self-compassion creates a strong foundation where one can learn to become content in whatever situation they find themselves in. Through therapeutic mindfulness you can learn to let go of those things that are holding you back, and find your inner joy and contentment.

Symptoms of depression can sometimes be devastating and cause an inability to function and at other times can be mild but chronic. Depression counseling with me involves talk therapy along with mind/body therapy that helps release whatever stuck patterns and negative beliefs that may be contributing to the low self-esteem, lack of motivation and energy, hopelessness, isolation, sleeping and eating problems. Using a holistic approach, it can be important to look at biological, psychological and social/external factors that may be causing the depression and make sure that each area is addressed. Depression may also be accompanied by anxiety and I have extensive experience treating both issues.
