Are you sad? Having trouble functioning? Has life lost it's meaning? Are you outwardly successful yet wondering "Is that all there is?" Although many of us feel down from time to time, depression can sometimes feel debilitating. Depression has many causes. My approach includes work on various levels: emotional, relational, cognitive, and spiritual. Therapy can help you be mindful of your experiences, your emotions and your thought patterns, have compassion with yourself, develop resilience and hopefulness and get you back to living the life you desire.

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.

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.
