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!

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!

This approach may include subconscious, unconscious, pre-conscious, &/or conscious techniques. This approach may also involve taking into account personality & emotional factors that are specific to the client. Most importantly, this approach takes into account the use of positive and negative triggers that can prevent an explosive reaction in the first place. It's a highly pro-active, pre-emptive approach.

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

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.

I believe if you’re battling depression, you could be “de-pressing” important thoughts and feelings – or at least attempting to. One cure for depression is “ex-pression.” I can help you learn ways to express yourself in ways that will dissipate your depression. Your depression may also be a sign that you aren’t living the life you want to live. I can help you discover and create that life – a life free of paralyzing depression. Contact me today to learn to how.

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.

And it's even more frustrating when it's out of your control and perhaps for reasons you're unaware of.
