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.

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.

I helps clients tap into an inner voice of positivity that they have learned to ignore, giving their full attention to the inner voice of negativity which leads to feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. You learn to be the author of your own life story, no longer dominated by the will of others, and a new sense of self direction pulls you up.

Depression, sadness, discouragement, hopelessness and helplessness are feelings most of us will experience at some point during our lifetime. These will be the difficult times that we may not be able to handle on our own. It demonstrates strength to reach out when things seem to be at their worst. Working through things together with someone who is a skilled helper makes the seemingly impossible possible.

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.

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.

Up and down days are common for us all. Sometimes, the down can really be down. During these times we tend to isolate ourselves and reduce the amount of care we give ourselves. Sometimes we may actually do things that hurt us. The best thing we can do is get help from a person. This counters the isolating tendency and increases the self-care. I understand depression, have experienced myself, and know the challenge it is to reach out. You are doing a great thing to ask for help. I admire and affirm that. We can work together to help you feel better.
