Depression affects millions of Americans each year. The causes of it are still not fully understood, but it is believed that genetic/biological tendencies interact with environmental issues, such as how you were raised, abuse, and situations where you feel helpless or hopeless to change. Chronic depression creates a loop, or cycle, where your thoughts, feelings and behavior become intertwined to continue to the cycle. If you change any one of these things, either your thought patterns, your emotions, or your actions, you can break the cycle of depression. My approach will be to provide support and empathy while guiding you to make positive changes in your life to ease the depression.

Depression is a difficult time where we may feel as though there is no hope of ever getting back to feeling motivated and excited about our self and our life again. Depression may be because of a situation in our life that has become painful or it may have to do with our biochemistry being out of balance or it can be because of both. I work with adults and adolescents. When I am with clients who are depressed it is my job to first help the client understand how they can get the short term and long term help they require. It is important to be with a kind, compassionate and experienced therapist that will hear you and help you get out of your isolation and find help and hope again!

First of all, my approach to therapy for depression involves exploring the life stressors that have brought on and maintained your depression. These can be from the past or present. Included in this we identify thought processes that accompany these. Through a variety of treatments such as finding ways to change your thinking and behavior you will feel more empowered and more fully self-aware. We will also pinpoint key themes which are causing the stress and which influence your thoughts and feelings about yourself and others. By being aware of these images you will understand where you are vulnerable and then we work together to strengthen those areas.

When we are depressed, we usually feel stuck, helpless, and hopeless. My approach is to help you realize or remember that you have options, and to help you determine what those options are. When we can see our options, we feel better because we feel more in charge of our lives. When we remember our power, we do not need to feel depressed any longer.

Depression affects everyone differently. Common symptoms may include being sad often, feeling empty, helpless, hopeless, guilty or worthless, irritability, restlessness, concentration difficulty, becoming tired easily, sleep problems (too much, too little, interrupted/disturbed), appetite changes, long term pain, headaches or stomach aches, a loss of interest in activities, isolation or withdrawal from friends and family and even thoughts of death or suicide. Therapy addresses depression by challenging thought patterns and actively creating new beliefs, behaviors and ways of being. Benefits can have a lasting effect to protect from symptoms returning long after treatment ends.

Leaving clinical depression (also known as major depression) untreated can have serious consequences. Studies have shown that untreated, it can lead to drug and/or alcohol abuse and addiction, behavioral problems that can upset personal and business relationships, and even interfere with recovery from serious illness. Additionally, it can have adverse affects on your sleeping and eating habits, and, perhaps worst of all, how you feel about yourself. Maybe family or friends have told you to “pull yourself together”, but as much as you would like to, it just doesn’t work. It rarely does. Clinical depression requires treatment from a trained professional. Without treatment, it can have devastating effects on your life, including health, career and...(view profile to read more)

While we all have the experience of feeling "down in the dumps" or "bummed out", or just "having a bad day", depression goes and hurts deeper than that. Clinical depression is prevalent in our society today. It has been called "the common cold of mental illness". The experience of depression can seem overwhelming, even crushing, but the good news is that it is very treatable. Psychotherapy and medication are very effective in treating clinical depression, and people can come through the depression to experience joy in life.

Did you know that the number of people who suffer with depression is similar to the number of people who suffer from seasonal allergies? I bet that is a surprise to you, since we don't hear people talking about depression like they talk about their allergies. People who suffer with depression are not only dealing with the depression but they are often doing it alone. Let us walk with you in this process so that you are not alone. We use a variety of techniques and when necessary, work collaboratively with psychiatrists to proscribe medication. Depression can feel like a heavy blanket - of crying, sadness, lack of motivation, apathy. Let us help you throw off the blanket and start thriving!

I utilize a protocol of cognitive therapy tools along with mild exercise, healthy diet, medical attention as needed, proper sleep, etc to overcome the depression. If there are other issues related to the depression then those need addressed as well. For example, loss of a job and the job search can create a lot of stress and even depression, loss of self worth, etc. So both need to be teated in order to overcome the depression. Sometimes losses and grieving can turn into depression such as the break up of a relationship. The ensuing depression needs treated but also help to grieve the loss to gain the ability to move on.
