Depression can leave you feeling stuck and unmotivated. Reaching out and starting the therapy process will support you in better understanding the causes of your symptoms. We will unpack the physical, emotional, relational, and spiritual contributors of your depression, develop new habits to help pull you out of the lows, and help restore your confidence in yourself. I use a combination of cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic approaches to develop your personalized treatment plan and make the way forward clear for you. Please reach out through phone or email to connect and further discuss your needs.

Depression is a particularly cruel and insidious companion, often working in tandem with other problems to try to silence us, to steal joy and passion, and to convince us of our uselessness. Depression may try to convince us that there is one truth - our own unworthiness - to the exclusion of all others. Together we will challenge depression's version of your story.

Are you living in a cloud, where everything seems foggy and dark? Depression can be a debilitating and hopeless experience. I understand that it can be incredibly difficult to reach out for help; remaining isolated is tempting for those struggling with depression -- whether it be from grief, trauma, loss, or "just because." 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.

To the extent that depression is symptomatic of underlying trauma, I use an integrative approach to treating the emotional, cognitive, and somatic ramifications of trauma. Talk therapy is incredibly useful in helping change your thoughts, but you cannot talk your way out of feeling; you can only feel your way out of feeling. When depression is robbing you of the ability to feel - emotion, sensation, and/or sexual arousal - it can be difficult for your cognitive shifts to manifest positive and sustainable change. Working through the body and nervous system, in support of changes in thought processes and belief systems, can lead to the shift you've been wanting.

We all feel down sometimes. Real depression is when we can’t get back up. Or it’s when we do so only after great effort, and even then it’s not all the way back. If sadness, hopelessness, and helplessness get in your way, that’s depression. Even mild or periodic depression can interfere in your life. It can also increase conflicts at work and in your relationships. Therapy helps, even without medication. Some people may benefit from medication, but that’s on an individual basis, and research shows that medication works best when it’s combined with therapy. We’ll examine what causes the depression, what you’ve tried, and what else can be done. Depression doesn’t have to stop your living.

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.

Depression has a way of taking away our zest for life, our sense of vitality, and even sometimes our will to live. I begin my work in depression treatment with a thorough assessment of not just the number of symptoms of depression but as importantly the quality of the depression. Depression that stems from guilt has a different feel than that which stems from shame. I observe and interact with my clients and I provide my observations back to them for their assessment and collaboration in this very engaged and intimate process of identification. I make note of how my client is feeling during these conversations and I make my observations and senses my guides in treating depressive feelings.

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

You're here for a reason. Something inside you knows things should be better, but how? Depression has a way of sneaking up on people. Like a frog in boiling water, maybe it started with fatigue, then there was a lack of interest in things you once loved (time with family, your career, athletics), then the negative self talk came in and made you believe "this" is the way you are now. Whatever the experience is, it's not too late. Together, we will work to get you back to feeling passionate, peaceful and in control. If you're ready to "feel like yourself again"--let's connect. I'd love to see how I can help.

Depression is an overused word, and therefore misunderstood. I will work with you to help you understand if you are truly depressed, caught in grief, or going through a rocky life-transition. How we respond to our life is as, or even more important than the facts of our life. Our reactions to our circumstances will guide our emotional path in either a positive or negative way. Let me help you embrace the parts of yourself that are unknown, even to you. Bringing your darkness to light, will help you to see yourself in a much more empathetic way.

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 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.

To effectively treat depression, it is important to seek care from a health care professional such as your primary care doctor or a licensed mental health professional. They can help you get a correct diagnosis and develop a treatment plan. There are many treatments for depression, and they typically include a combination of psychotherapy and medication.

Depression presents itself uniquely in each individual. Further, in working with children and young adults, they can too often be misdiagnoses as their behavioral presentation is labeled as disruptive and oppositional. Having a clear understanding of depression impacts the behavioral outlook of the individual is pivotal on developing an effective plan in addressing these concerns. By working with my clients and families in understanding the depression we are often able to shape the environment in which the depression exists. Joining this with cognitive behavioral and evidenced based interventions, we are then able to more effectively address these symptoms in our pursuit of long term goals.

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.
