At times our problems seem insurmountable and like there is no clear path forward. We often feel depressed when the life force within us has been blocked. We unknowingly contribute to this by keeping ourselves from fully experiencing our aliveness in order to protect ourselves from being hurt. These protective strategies that were once useful, may now hold us back. I can help you recognize what has been blocked, how this keeps you from life and how to release the patterns that keep you stuck. Time in nature can also help you recognize your connection to the natural cycles of growth and rest, and life and death.

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.

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,

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.

Symptoms of depression generally include difficulty sleeping, not enough energy, sometimes not eating or overeating, feeling down or irritable or sad, feeling little or no self worth, and sometimes even having suicidal thoughts. Therapy for depression has to do with first understanding what the depression is about. In our society many people don't even know how to ask questions about that. Additionally, most of us are influenced by factors that are outside of our conscious awareness, but they too need to be understood. The next step has to do with healing. Healing is a bit more complicated than this space allows, but has to do with letting go of old issues that no longer apply.

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.

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.

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.
