Middlefork Road, Boulder, Colorado

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.

I have suffered from depression myself in the past and not first hand how devastating it can be. Although it may seem like you will never feel normal again, that doesn't have to be the case. Depression is one of the most treatable mental illnesses. Psychotherapy is a very effective way to process what is behind the depression and can help get one through their depression.

Like all big emotions, shame has it's positive role. It's a part of how we learn who we want to be, and to cultivate humility. Shame can also show up after bad experiences, when it's easier to accept a sense of responsibility than to accept that we don't/didn't have control. When shame becomes a big part of your self image, it brings with it an overall sense of being inadequate, inferior or unworthy - like you just don't fit in the world. You may need help managing your shame if any of the following are true: You feel like most people reject or are critical of you (or would if they knew you) You feel like something is fundamentally bad or wrong about you You are very prone to embarrassment,

Joe Soma, MA, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

2769 Iris Ave, Suite 114, Boulder, Colorado

Depression fits into what I call a negative energy flow, meaning the direction of one's life energy goes inward, often resulting in collapse, depression, hibernation, etc. A key component of the work is in recognizing and working with that inward energy flow and balancing it away from collapse. If you have chosen a pharmacological intervention, there is still room for you to self-manage many components of the depression. If you are experiencing depression and are not taking a prescribed intervention, then the skills at self-management are paramount. If you are choosing to self medicate (supplements, legal drugs/alcohol, illegal drugs), then self-management remains critical.

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.

Randy Compton, MA

Registered Somatic Psychotherapist

1503 Yarmouth Ave, Boulder, Colorado

Depression can feel like a deep fog that clouds your whole world. Yet there is something underneath, some purpose, some unknown element that needs attention. My work with clients is to address all of these pieces through practical steps, deep body-mind exploration, and seeing the spiritual context. I will also work with you to find the hidden self within that often has been hurt so deeply that she or he has given up on the world. Be prepared to feel into hidden grief. By creating a safe environment to uncover some of these wounds, we can together begin to find energy, meaning and purpose in life once again.

Individuals struggling with depression can find the joy and opportunities in their live gradually fade. A powerful approach to treating depression involves the building of opportunity to act of aspects of life that bring joy. I work with clients to increase behavioral momentum, which is the impulse to act or move forward in life. By gradually tapping into well-selected routines and behaviors you can effectively manage your depression.
