Feeling disinterested, unmotivated, lonely and stuck can spiral down into problems at work, absenteeism, and interpersonal conflicts; then spiral further into disconnection, complete lack of interest in people, place and things, spontaneous uncontrollable crying and excessive sleep. I can help you pull yourself up out of the quicksand that is depression. With compassion, understanding, education, encouragement and collaboration hope can be restored.

Depression My approach to depression is multifaceted. We will utilize conventional talk therapy to help you to gain insight along with Cognitive Therapy to help you to look at your belief system about yourself and the world and to write new scripts for yourself. We will also look at historical, nutritional and environmental factors that may be contributing to your depression. I have found that for many people, addressing nutrition alone can be as powerful if not more powerful that the use of medication. Research over the last several decades has consistently found that, in the long run, psychotherapy is more effective than medication. My goal is to help to teach you skills and a lifest

We work with clients who experience long term as well as situational depression. We understand that you need more than someone who will tell you to "be more active and you'll feel better" or "think positive". Although these methods are effective, we will assist you in resolving your depression in order to move to become the more functioning person you want to be.

All of us feel some degree of depression at some time in our life. It is a normal feeling. But sometimes depression becomes something bigger, and causes pain. Depression is a complicated experience that involves our thinking processes, our emotional experience and our physical functioning. Treatment for depression often involves addressing each of these domains. I offer a wealth of experience in using many different methods of psychotherapy to help people with depression. Medication often offers some relief of symptoms, but medication does not address the underlying causes of depression, which is the work of psychotherapy, the work I do.

When you feel depressed, you want a counselor who can truly understand you. I've been depressed, too, and I know first-hand how it feels: the sense of loss, the loneliness, the darkness, the fatigue, the low self-esteem. It can happen to the best of us. I'll help you find a source of deep strength inside yourself. I'll help you develop more spiritual intimacy and find the peace that passes all understanding. I'll help you find your Authentic Self, your spirit, that part of you who is always connected to God. I'll help you shine, and feel unconditionally loved. I call that grace, and it is yours for the asking. I'll show you how to receive it. You are worth it!

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!

Depression is a peculiar experience. While some people experience it as a sudden and unmistakable thing, more often it creeps in gradually, sucking the joy out of life. It damages our ability to maintain perspective, which is one reason it sometimes seems so overwhelming that it is hard to imagine life without it. Therapy can help identify the sources of depression and empower you to move beyond patterns that keep you stuck and unhappy. My clients often want to change their lives and rid themselves of depression without the use of antidepressant medication, something I support when possible if they are willing to commit to other ways of caring for themselves.

A psychoanalytic approach to the treatment of depression creates a space where you may speak freely to your symptoms. This specialized way of speaking allows you to work through these symptoms, alleviating suffering and opening to desire. Desire is the antithesis of depression, and speaking not only allows you to work through symptoms but supports the cultivation of desire. A psychoanalytic approach to depression allows you to address symptoms as they express in thought, feeling and as symptoms in the body.

In my practice I counsel patients experiencing Reactive Depression. The experience of Reactive Repression is a matter of degree. It can be fleeting, episodic, or chronic, and usually is a reaction to an emotionally charged stressful change in their lives, or a trauma, e.g. relationship breakups, medical issues, job lost, etc. as well as emotionally traumatic events from earlier years. Physiological factors can be responsible for depression. If I suspect this I would recommend a medical consultation. I primarily utilize psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral techniques when working with depression.
