Depression is a signal from our internal system telling us we need to stop. What we need to stop may need to be discovered still, and therapy can help us to do just that. Depression tells us that some part of us feels hopeless, powerless and despairing, in light of the conditions or circumstances we are facing, and that nothing we can do will change that. I believe that we can address those feelings and together, we can find a way through the darkness of depression and help it to see and feel the power of our presence together. Let's not be afraid of what it might say, and instead appreciate it as a messenger and together, I believe we can hear its dilemma and help you to find a way through!

Depression often really just means "repression". It is usually a sign that the human system is overwhelmed with thoughts & emotions that have become unmanageable. People with depression are often stuck & unmotivated. A shift in circumstances is usually needed for people suffering from depression AND expressing emotions through a variety of outlets is extremely helpful.

Episodes of depression can sneak up on us and leave as quickly as they come or sit heavy like a boulder on our shoulders and a grey cloud over our heads. Therapy can ease the stress of the depression, lighten the load, and hopefully an umbrella between you and the dark cloud. Sometimes we feel worse before we get better but if you are looking to find a therapist then it sounds like you are closer to feeling better than you think.

Depression can cause experiences of lonliness, sadness, agitation, tearfulness, hopelessness, and decreased motivation. Together we can work to identify potential causes of depression symptoms and how these symptoms may be impacting your life. In most cases a core belief about ourself or the world can cause depression to persist. Some of these beliefs can include but are not limited to "I'm not good enough", "noone cares about me", "it's not safe to express my emotions", and "bad things always happen to me". Taking a collaborative approach we will incorporate both self compassion strategies and tangible skills based interventions as a way to work on improving your mood.

My approach with treating depression is to assess for negative thought patterns as well as unresolved grief or trauma. Once I determine the source, I have a Holistic approach for depression that involves a program of self care and inner work. I offer somatic techniques such as breath work, guided visualizations, EFT (the tapping technique that releases anxiety or trauma). I also teach cutting edge Law of Attraction techniques that help you stay out of depression and build up your self esteem as well as create more love, happiness, and financial abundance in your life.

Depression is like a huge weight on you or an inundating black darkness. It robs your world of light and color as it weighs you down, sapping your vital energy. Medication can sometimes help, but it does to provide the whole answer because it does not touch the roots of depression, which dare hidden in your emotions. Depression is a natural response to unintegrated emotional pain. This is where I can help. I am direct, yet gentle, warm and respectful. As we work together the process unfolds. My gift is in helping you to have new emotional experiences which move you through the painful feelings hidden under your depression and back into a vital engagement with your life.

Depression or sadness is a basic an universal feeling that has many causes. Some people are depressed due to stressful, difficult situations or relationships, feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope leading to a depressive shut down. Other times depression is a reaction to being stuck in ones life, not seeing a clear path or way to move forward. Sometimes depression stems from childhood abuse or neglect, often producing feelings of being defeated in life with low self esteem. All too often people seek a quick fix for depression using antidepressant drugs, which only mask the true nature of the problem. I aim to help you get to the true cause of your depression, teaching life skills.
