Depression can be very lonely, because even if you want to feel better and try to, you just can't. This can lead to feeling helpless and hopeless. Many factors both biological and environmental contribute to the onset of depression, and it is important to look at and address each element in conjunction with one another to experience long term relief. I am trained to view people holistically in order to provide help and hope to those struggling with depression.

Depression is a very common experience. Depression also has a wide range of differing expressions. It can be as mild as seasonal depression or as intense as forms of clinical depression which leave a person seemingly incapacitated. Depression is a very somatic and emotive experience. Together we will work hard to process through and find healing from depression.

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.

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?

Oftentimes depression is an underlying symptom of untreated trauma. The impact of trauma–including sexual abuse, incest, unwanted sexual encounters, etc. As a result, addressing the trauma rather than attacking depression can be a more effective approach. The integration of Contemplative Psychology, Somatic Experiencing (SE), and other modalities provides an opportunity to join the mind and the body in order to heal the wounds of trauma and relieve depression.

Depression is a debilitating emotional or biochemical reaction to unresolved stress or trauma. It can manifest itself in so many different ways including feeling stuck, sleep difficulties, eating patterns, low self esteem/worth, feeling shame, wanting to hurt ourselves and wanting to no longer be alive. It can be an over all daily feeling or come and go in waves. There are probably unresolved reasons why you feel depressed and something gets triggered to cause that feeling of sadness, paralysis, or anger at yourself. You are not alone you don't always have to feel depressed. Change is possible! I work with people who experience depression.

Depression may show up in a variety of different ways for you; you may notice that you are feeling deeply sad, lonely, and alone. You may also be noticing that you are lacking in energy, inspiration, and motivation. Depression or overwhelming feelings of sadness and despair are often clues that something deeper is going on within your psyche and within your body. More often than not there is a reason for your depression, even when you are not consciously aware of it. Your body doesn't speak in words, the way your mind does, rather it communicates with you through your feelings, sensations, and emotions. Often ignoring your emotions can intensify your feelings of depression.

Depression is more than a word, for many people it is a temporary or chronic state of sadness, fear, frustration, confusion, chaos, and meaninglessness. When depression is present, the things that used to make a person happy are now dull, lifeless, and without joy. Furthermore, depression robs us of our will to change, of our hope, and of our energy. Inertia and darkness can then take over a life. Working through depression requires compassion for ourselves and patience with the process. We begin to gradually rediscover and integrate essential activities back into our lives. Ultimately we regain momentum and then can find the source of the depression and work on taking its energy away.

Are you feeling sad, worried or depressed? Are you experiencing relationship or family problems? Is your child/teen's mood or behavior concerning to you? Everyone has the capacity to change, heal and grow, but it could be challenging to move forward when you're facing problems alone. Working together, we will take steps to help you and/or your loved one find relief while exploring past experiences, relationships, current triggers and stress, so that meaningful long-term change can occur. My goal is to offer an atmosphere where clients feel safe, accepted and hopeful.

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.
