Depression is a debilitating illness that takes many forms. Here at Naya Clinic, we have seen it leave the strong feeling helpless and the passionate lose their fire. Depression—like grief—is characterized by sadness or a lack of motivation. However, grief is an overwhelming—albeit normal—emotional response to the tragedies of life, whereas depression persists beyond—or even in the absence of—these tragedies. Depression often takes the joy from once-pleasurable pastimes and can fill its victims’ heads with negative self-talk, or—at its worst—even cause thoughts of ending their lives.

Depression can be nothing short of crippling. Never being able to get out of bed. Telling people you love that you are fine when you are not. Feeling like no one understands. Other people can't relate to you anymore. Feeling along when you are surrounded by people. Depression can affect anyone. Doesn't matter who you are, where you are, what you have, who you have, what you have accomplished, or what you believe. You can't suck it up, power through, get tough, and a bunch of other sayings or clichés that mean nothing. Depression takes no prisoners. It does not discriminate. Depression is the great equalizer for everyone. However, you do not have to suffer with depression.

Feeling depressed? I can help you enjoy life again. Though my practice is focused on anxiety, I frequently help my anxious clients with depression as well. If you are feeling depressed, I can help you improve your mood, get active, and enjoy your life. I use a proven type of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy called Behavioral Activation (BA), which has been shown through over 15 years of research to be the most effective treatment for depression. I typically get results even when other types of treatment and medication have failed.

Depression appears different for every person. For some, slight modifications to their life can help immensely. Others literally get out of bed or perform activities one step at time. I meet the client where they are in their experience of depression, helping them realize that depression is just a part of daily life, not something that defines them or has to debilitate them. Together we work on coping skills, self care, and developing support systems. Medication is sometimes part of treatment as well.

In depression you are caught in the past! You fear that your future will only be a replication of the misery and poor behavior choises that have been your past. You get caught in obsessive loops of thoughts and cannot break free. Your feelings become blunted and your optimism is eroded. I can help you escape from the cages in your mind and the dullness of your current life. With or without medication, I will help you to learn and use techniques to gain freedom and recapture your emotional depth. You will learn to live more fully in the present moment, to criticise yourself less, and to appreciate the newly percieved options that surround you.

The world can be very fast paced and can feel scary. It is very important to have the guidance when coping with depression. Looking at how someone is processing life experiences and their attachment with others is important. Focusing on the interpersonal self and what is causing the depression will enable you to have more balance in your life.

Just like anger depression is your body's way of saying something is wrong. Many say depression it is anger turned inward. My idea is that depression is telling you to take care of yourself, rest, slow down, cocoon, look inward, cry. Wouldn't it be a gift to allow these things to take place in your body and soul? Though many people fight depression or judge depressed people as just lazy or unmotivated. How different would it be if we learned to honor depression and work through it and not against it?

When working with depression, I use a combination of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), talk therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) when working with adults and teens and play therapy when working with children. If there is a clinical depression diagnosis, Neurofeedback or consulting a doctor about medication options may also be recommended as a part of the treatment process.
