Sometimes, depression is so painful, we hold it in, rather than risk getting overwhelmed by feelings. It can be scarey to express feelings. Taking any action may be the last thing you feel like doing, especially when you lose sight of hope. Your energy may be low, and relationships can be affected. It may feel like you are mad at the world, or just want to retreat. I will try to make it safe for you. I will listen and also guide you, when needed. People find that when they are seen and heard, part of their feelings of isolation lifts. We will also examine the thoughts that keep you stuck and explore other meanings. Sometimes adding nonverbal work, like art, helps express scarey feelings.

When life gets you down and you feel like you can't go on. What can you do? It takes so much energy to just get out of bed how will you ever feel happy? Stuck in the muck. Drowning in dreary living. The future looks dull and there is no end in sight. Learn to connect to your heart's desire and begin to dream about what really matters to you. By clarifying your values and then working on a plan on how to bring those values to life is part of therapy. Knowing you are living for a purpose can add a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction to your life. I can teach you new skills to help you connect to your dreams. Once, you are clear about your dreams you can make a plan to have them come true.

The first step in dealing with depression is psycho/educational regarding the physical connections between medical issues and depression. All clients should have a full medical work up and rule out the possibility of medical causes with depression. Lifestyle choices, diet, sleep hygiene, exercise and relational boundaries will be explored during treatment of depression. In a sense, "depressed" symptoms can be connected to a multitude of causes. The traditional psychodynamic approach in embracing our stories honestly and examining our relational tendencies to repress the uncomfortable parts of our past will also be utilized to liberate the client from the pain of depression.

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.

Depression can have several causes. It often has a biochemical base but usually also comes from life events that we find difficult to cope with. This, in turn, can result in painful beliefs about yourself such as "I am no good," I'm not lovable," or "I don't matter." One of the biggest problems with being depressed is that you seldom feel like doing the things that can help you feel better! f you are depressed I can help you learn to let go of negative beliefs and gradually build positive behaviors that can help you find more zest and joy in your life.

Depression is a complex problem that affects many different aspects of the sufferer’s life. It can affect the body, and generate physical symptoms like insomnia, fatigue, appetite disturbances, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. Psychotherapy and antidepressant medications are the two most commonly used treatments for managing depression. Many people use a combination of the two. Psychotherapy is a non-drug alternative that is generally as effective as medication, and in some ways even superior because it treats the root causes of depression. In my practice I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to replace the dysfunctional thoughts that are causing depressive symptoms with functional thoughts.

If you are experiencing situational or chronic depression, you need help. In a safe environment, we will explore the experiences and thought processes that lead to depression. Then, by reframing, I will help you keep what is true and discard the incorrect beliefs that caused your depression in the first place. I will encourage self-care as a way to manage and improve your mood including walking, journal writing and developing a strong social network. I will also explain the role of the brain in depression and discuss how medication can help.

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.
