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!

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.

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.

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.

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)

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.

Depression can rob you of joy, peace, energy, health, and even relationships. It can leave you not wanting to get out of bed in the morning and not enjoying pleasurable activities you have enjoyed in the past. If you have suffered under depression for many years, you may not even be aware that you are depressed, because you are so used to it. Depression may seem like a usual condition to you. By addressing the underlying causes with a professional, you can progress and move forward to a place that is less heavy feeling, more hopeful, and more full of life.

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.
