Depression can impact anyone and certainly most people have experienced it as a temporary problem at some point in time. As a temporary mood it is unpleasant but chronic depression has significant impact in one's life when it becomes a disorder. Some symptoms include, but not limited to; sadness, impaired daily functioning at school, work, social and family relationships, decreased concentration, poor appetite, impaired sleep, decreased pleasure or purpose in life, hopelessness, guilt, shame and irrational beliefs. Anxiety and anger can also be present with depression. Counseling and medical treatment with your primary care physician can address proper treatment for depressive disorders.

When clients come to me for help with depression, I want to hear about their most sincere intention. I invite them to go to that place within themselves and say what it is that they are really wanting. This gives me an idea of what their parameters are and what's possible. I like to ask, “What’s asking for attention in your life right now?” My assumption is that they are yearning for inner peace and a loving heart. All of us sense a yearning for existence or a looking for what will feel more at home and at peace. This thought process keeps us energized in hope and less in the depths of despair.

Depression is a major cause that can lead to substance or alcohol addictions. Without really delving into the core issues behind someone's depression, there is no real rehabilitation from these addictions.

Depression is a mood disorder causing persistent feelings of sadness and loss of interest. It can be the result of a loss or trauma, it can be a chronic day to day challenge, or it can hit you by surprise for what seems to be no reason. I work with children and adults to help clients to recognize their triggers, change their self-talk, and challenge their negative thoughts in order to regain the joy that they have lost.

Dealing with drug or alcohol addiction and recovery can be a difficult process often accompanied by feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Those already dealing with alcohol or drug dependence may not have the coping mechanisms needed to properly heal during this time. Many mental health professionals often identify five stages of grief — denial, bargaining, anger, depression and acceptance. Since some of these emotions often overlap with the addiction process, treatment for both can often be achieved at the same time, but it takes special attention to these unique circumstances to obtain a successful outcome.

Often times depression is co-occurring with an eating disorder, addiction, trauma, grief and loss, or fractured relationship. We use many different approaches to help individuals heal from depression to achieve mental, emotional, and physical peace of mind.

Dealing with depression can be difficult and confusing as we all want to feel good, but often feel down and unmotivated. My approach to treating depression starts with evaluating your life, including goals, values, and priorities. I often find that when our actions don't match our core values (what is most important to us) we tend to feel down, not only about our situation, but about ourselves. By working to take action that fits with your value system, you can start to feel better about you and better about your situation.

So often, depression is a natural response by people who feel overwhelmed by all that is required to engage with and enjoy the world. After almost 40 years in the field, I have learned that the secret to helping clients get past that overwhelmed feeling requires only two easy steps. First, I listen closely to find out what people's natural strengths, skills, and gifts are. Then I gradually give them very small assignments called "baby steps" that rely on their strengths. Each small change has huge results, and depression soon fades away as each step is achieved.

Recurrent or chronic depression can be disabling. Social isolation and conflict, deep emotional wounds, losses, and biological factors are just some of the causes of clinical depression. Dr. Rapp uses proven methods of treating the underlying causes of depression to provide relief, and a new life, even for people who have not responded to treatment before. Change is possible, but you have to take the next step.
