Depression manifests in individuals in many ways. Some respond to depressing events by sleeping too much or too little. Others may change their eating patterns. Many will withdraw from events and lose motivation. These are just some of the corresponding symptoms of depression, and it impacts others differently. My approach helps people understand the underlying symptoms of depression, increase feelings of happiness, and learn proactive and reactive tools to manage depressive symptoms.

The root of depression is complex. There is probably a genetic predisposition and may often accompany anxiety and trauma. Some difficult triggers can include the death of a loved one, divorce, illness, or having a challenging relationship with alcohol and other substances. It is not uncommon for life transitions that on the surface appear positive (weddings, pregnancy, children going to college, retirement) to trigger feelings of depression. You can find relief and healing through psychotherapy. Together, we can identify the triggers to get to the source of the suffering, identify short and long term solutions to bring about a sense of relief, and explore different avenues to help.

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.
