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.

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 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.

Did you know that depression is really typically about anger? The 2 are interwoven. If you think of your emotions like the layers of a volcano. The volcano may be closed and the anger is inside but you feel depressed. So addressing the underlying anger helps greatly. There are things that you can do to increase your serotonin levels other than medication but sometimes medication is needed as an adjunct to therapy.

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.

Depression and Substance Abuse Most times, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on studying your thought patterns looking for negative perceptions of yourself, the world around you and your view of it. Many times chances are good that these will be flawed perceptions called negative cognitive distortions. These distortions cause dim lenses that change the way you view the whole world. Some cognitive distortions include: All-or-nothing thinking: Perceiving situations in absolute, black-and-white categories. Overgeneralization: Viewing a recent, negative event as a never-ending pattern of defeat.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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!
