Managing depression can be difficult because we may feel alone, like we do not want to burden others for support or understanding. This can contribute to periods of feeling alone and suffering alone and in silence. Now is the time to act. Please contact me or another therapist for aide. We are here and very willing to those going through depression.

I think that my most important technique is to assist individuals in recognizing that depression is a condition and is not a form of laziness; many individuals have expressed a sense of relief as others have encouraged them to "just get over it". I utilize a combination of support and encouragement, including discussions of successes and challenges. I strongly discourage the use of the word "should" and any judgmental language. In addition, I believe that there is no specific time table for recovery, and that each individual is unique in their recovery.

You’ve tried counseling for depression before. They gave you exercises on how to think positively; they didn’t work. They gave you anti-depressants; they may have helped but not enough. That is because depression is a way of dealing with life and some form of it has worked for you in the past. It hasn’t made life fun, but it’s made is bearable. It’s time to learn a new way of dealing with life and leave depression behind. If your depression is new to you, it may be the result of some event in your life. We can work with that too. You don’t have to be depressed just because you’re feeling down today.

I have a real heart for people who suffer from depression, having experienced depression personally myself. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in counseling people who are dealing with various levels of depression. I believe CBT is extremely effective in treating depression, because depression causes the mind to have distorted and untrue thoughts about oneself and a person's self-esteem and self-worth. I work hard to show a person that depression can be managed and that people can overcome depression by practicing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and also by learning how to care for themselves in the physical, emotional and spiritual areas of their life

Depression is not a one size fits all category. I individualized my approach to each person since I am treating a person and not a condition. Generally, we will need to address beliefs and one's way of living in their body as I have found that depression needs to be treated as both a mind/ body phenomenon. Often, we find unexpressed or suppressed emotion as a factor playing into one's depression. Learning how to express emotions will be covered when treating depression.

Research has provided significant evidence that depression can be improved or even eliminated with a wide range of interventions. Although many believe that the “gold standard” treatment for depression is medication and talk therapy, I believe that the least intrusive intervention should be targeted first. Try talking to a therapist before getting medication prescribed. I will help you examine how you’re thinking about the problem may be actually supporting your depression, how your relationships may be contributing to your sense of sadness and frustration and how you can begin to make concrete behavioral modifications to begin the path to recovery. Recent studies show that medication is most eff....

I use Acceptance Commitment Therapy(ACT)in addressing depression. ACT encourages clients to experience their feelings, rather than to try to avoid them. It also helps them to shift their focus from trying to stop being depressed to living their lives--engaging in actions that are in line with their values. Although these ideas may sound counterintuitive at first blush, they help people to lead fuller, richer lives. My clients often are surprised to find that their depression is no longer in the driving seat, but is playing a very minor--if any--role in their lives.

It can be very challenging to live day to day life when we are feeling chronically sad, overwhelmed, disconnected or lonely. To help people who are feeling depressed I meet them where they are at & seek to understand what they are thinking & feeling & how those thoughts & feelings are negatively affecting them. I find out what their ideal life would be - their hops & their dreams - what life would look like if they were no longer sad or depressed & I work with them to take small action steps to help them to feel stronger, happier, more fulfilled.
