When we feel depressed we can forget about taking care of our basic needs. Simple things like running errands or making the bed can feel insurmountable. Isolating from others can feel like the right thing to do but propel us further into a depressed space. Often we are unaware of how our mindset contributes to this state. And we try to cope by engaging in habits that increase feelings of shame and hopelessness. I can support you in your journey of coming out of the heaviness and into a lighter way of being. We can look at how shame may play a role in remaining stuck. We can look at unresolved fears and needs along with cognitive distortions that may keep you from moving forward.

Sometimes we find ourselves in the "dark night of the soul." It is a place so painful that we feel we might never find our way out. Our counseling relationship can help you find out why you feel so hopeless, and help you gain insight about how your environment and relationships (both past and present) might be contributing to your feelings. Once you figure this out, we can determine what steps you might need to make to find freedom and joy again.

Discover the cause of depression and what to do about it. Many times people feel depressed because they feel that their life should look different than it does in the moment. Dr. Eris Huemer joins with her clients by helping them explore a preferred future for themselves. She takes her clients through a process that helps them change by constructing solutions rather than dwelling on problems. The emphasis here is on finding solutions to current problems and focusing on future wellness rather than past hurts. This is not to say that the past is ignored but the main emphasis is on teaching new skills and creating the life that you want and deserve.

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.

Depression often goes hand in hand with low self-esteem. In treating depression, I would help clients to separate themselves from their depression so that they could start to build back their self-concept. In addition, I would empower clients to use mindfulness concepts to treat their depression by focusing on the present moment, acknowledging their feelings, working through difficult emotions, and accepting the impermanence of feelings.

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.

If the people in your life haven't ever experienced depression (which is different than being depressed), they can't understand why you can't get over it, move on with your life, or do the things that you used to do. Some people even get into "cheerleading" (c'mon-- you can do it!). That's why I work to understand your depression and help you to manage the feelings of helplessness, despair, and frustration related to depression--little by little, day by day, you might start to get better under my care as I would do my best to understand what you're going through.

My approach to treating depression is the psychodynamic approach coupled with Cognitive Behavior Therapy. I work with clients on identifing current life circumstances that may be contributing to the depression. I then help them identify distored thinking patterns or perceptions that lead to depression. Also spend time uncovering past trauma including childhood trauma and use inner healing techniques to help clients uncover and release trauma from the body and correct negative thinking patterns that resulted from the truama.

Untreated depression can lead to destructive and often fatal behaviors if an individual has little or no social supports or coping skills intact, as well as vary between age, gender & cultural groups. Often what many depressed people feel is empty, hopeless, helpless and completely alone, even if family or others are physical nearby. Often clients report that they cannot function with what would be considered daily simple tasks, i.e., bathing, getting out of bed, and even making meals or eating can be taxing. Feeling excessively tired and worn out has been common with chronic depression. Psychotherapy can possibly make all the difference when individuals feel life is no longer worth living.

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 have experience working with depression and can help you not only develop more effective coping skills, but also identify the core reasons behind your depression in order to provide longer-term healing and change.

A need for emotional connection is wired into our DNA as a survival mechanism. But in response to childhood experiences, you may have developed patterns of relating to people that interfere with that essential attachment, so you feel chronically disconnected and depressed. At one time, these patterns protected you from a less than nurturing environment. But now they’re doing more harm than good. Like a self-fulfilling prophecy, your expectations about how others will treat you can lead you to behave in ways that elicit the very responses you fear. EFT can help you heal your relationships and mood. Research shows EFT can be as effective as medication in relieving the symptoms of depression.

Depression affects every area of our lives and is extremely common. It is estimated that more than 19 million Americans deal with depression, but the good news is that it is very treatable. The first thing I like to do is tap into and build on existing strengths and skills. The tools we already have can easily be forgotten when depression comes over us. At the same time, we work on adding new skills and tools that can be used to boost mood and improve other symptoms of depression. Because the roots of depression have a variety of factors, the most important part of treatment for long term results is exploring and working through the underlying cause.
