Working with the experience of depression is much more than changing our thoughts to change our behavior. Our brains are wired to notice the negative; it's part of our survival. I support my clients in expanding what they notice, and help them discover what works for them by creating a tool kit through experiential relational interventions in session. When I see children, I utilize play therapy as the modality, including Child Centered Play Therapy, Filial Therapy, and Prescriptive Play Therapy. When working with adolescents and adults, I utilize expressive arts, DBT, CBT and Narrative Therapy.

First, it's important to me to understand what my clients mean by "depression" because how one client experiences depression can be very different than another client. This is necessary so I can customize the strategies I use for each specific client based on their unique experience of depression. Ultimately, my clients can expect to discover real-world steps they can take to feel not just "less depressed" but better about their life - and more positive and hopeful.

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.

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.

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.

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.
