Clients usually experience a progressive decline in mood, which can impact their emotions, the quality of their sleep, relationships (they may even begin to withdraw from others), and have persistent negative thoughts. Many clients prefer to explore viable holistic and integrative strategies before trying medication. In our collaboration, we will design a plan to explore possible options, strategies to strengthen effective coping mechanisms, and identify a plan to enhance the opportunity for recovery.

I understand how depressing depression is! I know most people that struggle with depression do not appear to be struggling--they go about life much like everyone else, but what people don't know is how much harder it is to be fighting a constant uphill battle. Depression is not just about feeling sad or being pessimistic. It holds you back from doing the things you want. It gets in the way. There are good days when it doesn't affect you much at all, but then there are bad days that bring you to a dark, dark place in your mind. I know what it is like and I can help you in your battle against depression, contact me now

I work with depression from both a cognitive behavioral, family systems, and somatic perspective. The cognitive behavioral perspective means that we will examine what things you can do in your life right now to help you feel better including things such as diet, exercise, self care, and relationships. The family systems perspective means that I will help you examine where the depression you are experiencing stems from. Often coping strategies that helped us as a child no longer are working. Somatic experiencing examines the experiences of the body and expands the capacity to tolerate negative bodily states and enjoy positive states. I take a holistic approach to healing.

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.

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.

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.

Having depression goes beyond normal feelings of sadness or having the "blues." We might find ourselves losing interest in things that we once enjoyed, we can lose motivation to put one foot in front of the other or we might just feel constantly sad or down. Depression can occur over a couple of weeks to even years. Just know that you don't have to feel this way any longer and there are many ways that we can work together to improve your mood and get you back to feeling hopeful about your future.

Depression is a complicated, but debilitating experience. Many factors may contribute to your depression, and a multi-faceted approach is often necessary to address physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual contributing factors. Sometime tackling depression means processing unresolved memories or situations; at other times the best approach involves the here-and-now. Changes in one area often effect changes in another, so the important thing is to dive in with courage to work toward change. I know how hard this can be when suffering depression, and the fact that you are here researching help is a great first step. Let's work together at developing a plan that re-empowers you.

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.

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.

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.

I practice a type of therapy for depression called Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which research has shown to be especially effective with depressive disorders. Using CBT, we work together to discover underlying beliefs (which we call cognitive distortions) that are causing or contributing to your depressive symptoms. Once identified, we then use a variety of techniques to help you correct those thinking patterns that are causing you difficulty. We measure progress constantly so that we can try new techniques if needed, to help you feel better.
