Depression has many different faces. It can be triggered by sad events, like the loss of a loved one, or by seemingly happy events, like the birth of a child. Sometimes it can even be caused by influences we don’t really understand. Helping individuals identify the causes of their depression, and explore new ways to cope are at the heart of my work in this area. Often clients who begin therapy because of depression discover that what they are feeling is to past trauma, issues related to their family history or upbringing, negative thinking or limiting beliefs. With the opportunity to work through past issues in a safe, non-judgmental setting often helps people find relief from their overwhelming emotions and lift the fog of depression that has been weighing them down.

All of us feel sad from time to time. But when sadness lasts for awhile and it affects our lives in a negative way, it is time to do something about it. Depression can be caused by various factors, such as, divroce, death, loss of job, abuse, and/or negative traumatic memories. Sometimes we may not be able to pinpoint the cause of our sadness. That's where counseling can prove beneficial. Therapy can help you figure out the source of your depression, give you tools to deal with it and set goals for a happier and brighter future.

Depression can be the result of flawed thinking patterns which are difficult to recognize by yourself. A great many of your negative feelings may be based on thinking errors. Thinking errors can cause unnecessary pain. Using Cognitive Behavior Therapy we can uncover your irrational beliefs which are causing you pain and replace them with more reality based thoughts which will lead to a more positive outlook and feeling hopeful and less depressed. Some people can do this work alone, but having a trained listener, such myself, would simplify and speed up the process. Don't you want to feel better as soon as possible?

Depression and Anxiety are the number one mental health issues in the United States. Most people who suffer from depression don't get help for it, instead they suffer alone. Rather medicating it away, therapy can help you understand the roots of the depression and/or anxiety and learn specific tools to find relief from it. You don't have to continue living with sadness.

Depression is often a state of confusion resulting from the lack of permission or guidance in processing difficult situations. An opportunity to work through past trauma can help lift depression so there is a greater emotional freedom to move forward and make choices in life. This support to process needs to be kind and understanding while providing a bit of a "push" to find the courage to face whatever scary feelings might be hidden away.

Depression may be caused by many factors and I look into a persons history to find the key to the beginning of the depression, many times in early childhood. As mentioned before I use Trauma methods to approach the trauma and to find the "keystone" event that may have started the trauma leading to depression. Sometimes there is a biological reason for this depression causing these triggers to go off. I can also then refer to a specialist MD.

In our modern society, we have come to see Depression as a problem, something to be treated, avoided, and cured. Have you ever noticed that the more you try to "treat" your depression, the stronger it gets? This is because Depression is a sign, a message, that something in our lives is not working. Just like taking aspirin for a headache won't treat the cause of the headache, just taking medication for Depression won't ultimately free us. It takes deeper work, uncovering the pain and the underlying emotions and experiences that have lead us to this place. Yes, that takes more courage and commitment than simply popping a pill or going for a run. But is actually does cure Depression.

Depression can be experienced at any age and comes in various degrees impacting how we feel about ourselves and others. It can change our mood, eating, sleeping, thinking, and involvement in activities. Many individuals suffer in silence but their mood and behavior reveal a deeper turmoil within themselves. Talking to a trusted person about those inner thoughts is helpful but many friends and family members may not have the knowledge and skills to help you. Seeking a professional counselor can reduce feelings of isolation and provide you with feelings of hope. “Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed” Proverbs 15:22.
