I see depression as something different for everyone affected by it. Some people come in feeling the blues. Others just can't seem to get out of their funk. For some they feel as though they can't remember the last time they were truly happy. I work with each patient to determine the root cause of their feelings so that they can combat their depression head on. I explain my views on happiness vs contentment, and often that allows for people to see things differently enough to make small changes each day. I also speak openly to patients about medication pros and cons, educating them on ways to speak to their primary care physicians and/or psychiatrists in order to optimize treatment.

Depression can be the result of past losses, anxiety, stress, unhappy relationships, a lacking sense of meaning/purpose, regrets, anger, and a broad range of other issues. I help those I serve become aware of the causes of depression and can provide effective strategies for overcoming feelings of sadness that will help lead to a happy and fulfilling life.

Although I utilize a variety of techniques to help clients address their depression, there are key approaches that have been shown in the research, as well as in my clinical practice, to be particularly helpful. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, both have excellent research results to back them up. When used individually, or in combination, clients learn new ways of interacting and coping with their own difficult thoughts and emotions. They also learn effective strategies to help engage life in more meaningful ways.

No purpose...Feeling powerless...Hopelessness...Feel like giving up...Lack of motivation...Feeling sucked into a “black hole” with no way out...Overwhelmed... Where does it all come from? How does it make sense? Can anything be done about this? Dr. Petit provides helpful understanding of and insight into depression, depressive states and cycles. Though it is impossible to keep “bad” things from happening, it is possible to make sense of the emotional, physical, physiological, and spiritual impact. A place of hope and well-being is possible as clients work through thought processes, beliefs, behaviors, & life pattern

Together we will transform depression into expression and allow new and freeing energy to emerge.

Depression is an area of special interest to me. It is a common problem, but never "common" to the person suffering! If you've been afraid to seek help, I encourage you to consider a holistic approach to healing your depression. I use research-based strategies integrating cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness training and lifestyle changes to increase well-being and decrease physical, emotional and cognitive symptoms of depression. You will be encouraged to see your physician to rule out the many physical ailments that have side effects of depression. The therapy process empowers you to be happy again!

It's been estimated that in the U.S. 6.7% of all adults aged 18 or older had at least one major depressive episode in the past year. Very few of these people receive any treatment to help reduce the depressive symptoms. I formulate an individualized treatment plan to begin reducing the symptoms baed on their background and history. This is primarily a cognitive-behavioral approach, whereas the client can begin to identify the negative thoughts that can intensify the depression. We come up with ways to neutralize these thoughts, while also beginning to create new positive thoughts. There is also an emphasis on slowly engaging in behaviors that offset the depressive symptoms.

Depression can seem to impact every part of life at times and make any task seem like too much work. I provide my clients new ways of handling and challenging the negative thoughts that keep them feeling stuck. By using cognitive behavioral therapy, an evidence based treatment for depression, clients learn to change their thinking pattern that has led to a lot of their emotional pain.

We can partner together so that you don't feel so alone while we identify and change the beliefs and thoughts that are keeping you stuck. It is possible!

A large percentage of those whom I have seen over the years have struggled with depression in some form. It looks different from person to person. Some times depression accompanies a significant change or loss; some times it feels as if you have struggled with it all or most of your life. When it comes to treating depression, one size does not fit all. If you feel "less than" yourself, without as much energy, sad, prone to isolation, disinterested in life, or focused on thoughts of dying, please contact me so that we may explore those unique factors that contribute to your depressive symptoms.
