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!

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.

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.

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 is more than feeling sad. Depression can hit at various times and for many reasons. When you are not able to "snap out" of feeling down, no matter what may be happening around you, it is likely time to contact a counselor. Not opposed to medication, but a proponent of getting to the root of the problem, I advocate for therapy as a first step, and depending on the level of depression, we will discuss the pros and cons of exploring alternate routes. Renewed peace and joy is always my goal with clients. Countless have attested to feeling like "themselves" once they made the difficult, but rewarding decision to connect with a Licensed Professional.

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 can range from mild to severe. Depression can be a result of many factors or a combination of factors. It is important to first understand the severity of the depression and take the necessary steps to insure the safety of the client. Depression can be a symptom that says something is going on in your life that needs to be addressed. I believe that treating the symptom without addressing the underlying issue does a disservice to the client.

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.

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.
