When one is struggling with depression, it feels like being at the bottom of a big, black hole, always looking for a way out/up and not finding one. I provide emotional support, administer depression inventories, provide referrals for medication evaluations (if necessary), and help with cognitive processing to change thinking patterns which add to the depression. Don't try to face your depression alone. There is help available!

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.

I use several methods for helping you overcome depression. I support you in maintaining safety. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I help you to identify unhelpful thoughts and learn how to restructure your thoughts. I help you identify root causes of your depression and find ways to reduce their impact by replacing them with activities and relationships that support you in increased positive mood and personal responsibility. Depression can be comorbid with other issues you may be struggling with and I take a holistic approach to help you address what is needed in order to become a more fulfilled, and satisfied individual.

Depression can be the overwhelming mountain and clouds that seems impossible to overcome. Being able to have a sense of hope in times of depression is essential in overcoming the challenges, the cloudiness, the lack of clarity that comes with depression. Counseling can help with that. Counseling can provide tools to help you overcome depression, and can provide you with an individualized plan to make way and overcome the overwhelming tower or mountain that depression can be. Depression removes our energy, and overcoming depression can be a helpful way to regain energy, hope, and a purpose for life again. Let's work towards overcoming your depression together through therapy and interventions

Clients usually experience a progressive decline in mood, which can impact their emotions, the quality of their sleep, relationships (they may even begin to withdraw from others), and have persistent negative thoughts. Many clients prefer to explore viable holistic and integrative strategies before trying medication. In our collaboration, we will design a plan to explore possible options, strategies to strengthen effective coping mechanisms, and identify a plan to enhance the opportunity for recovery.
