We all go through ups and downs in our moods. Sadness is a normal reaction to life's struggles, setbacks, and disappointments. Many people use the word "Depression" to explain these kind of feelings, but depression is much more than just sadness. Whatever the symptoms, depression is different from nornal sadness in that it engulfs your day-to-day life, interfering with your ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and have fun. Getting the support you need plays a big role in lifting the fog of depression and keeping in away. On your own, it can be difficult to maintain perspective and sustain the effort required to beat depression. Please contact me for help and support.

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.

It is important that we recognize the brain as an organ and that it sometimes becomes unbalanced. When we are experiencing depression, sometimes the chemicals in our brains have become unbalanced and we aren't sure why. Other times, we experienced a traumatic or upsetting event that led to depression. Whatever the cause, there is hope (even when it doesn't feel like it).

Sadness and depression have many causes, and therefore people respond differently to various treatment approaches. I can help you discover your own unique triggers for depression, and work with you to find the best treatment for you. Though medication has it's value in some circumstances, I view medication as a last resort after all other interventions have failed. Therapy has been proven to help people feel better faster. Let me help you begin the healing process.

I believe that as we grow up we are shaped by our relationships; this starts from the time we are little and continues for the rest of our lives. Through these relationships we are also shaped by society. In being shaped we create various meaning from our experiences as well as receiving and giving instructions on how to live. When we form new relationships of any kind, this gets challenged; coming together and finding a path forward that celebrates all involved is the key to success. Sometimes this gets stalled through unspoken expectations and anticipated or unanticipated pressure related to sadness. Lets explore this!

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.

I help you identify root causes of your depression and find ways to reduce their impact by replacing them with activities and relationships that support you in increased positive mood and personal responsibility. Depression can be comorbid with other issues you may be struggling with and I take a holistic approach to help you address what is needed in order to become a more fulfilled, and satisfied individual.

In treating depression I use a holistic eclectic approach depending on what works for each individual. In therapy we may focus on the underlying root causes of depression perhaps stemming from childhood issues, trauma, and relationships with parents or caregivers. We may focus on cognitive behavorial techniques relating how thoughts can affect feelings and behavoir. We may focus on current interpersonal relationships and how they play a role in your depression. We may focus on other current life stressors and develop new coping strategies for dealing with stress. My goal is to support you and assist you as you climb out of depression's often times debilitating symptoms.

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 assist clients with exploring how much their depression is based on unfulfilled desires or wishes, and how much it is based in a history of feeling neglected, unseen, unloved, etc. I use various techniques and processes, such as CBT therapy, hypnotherapy, EMDR, Byron Katie, and other techniques to help my clients release themselves from the grip of the depression as they are more able to access their wise, loving inner selves.
