My personal experience with depression has given me helpful knowledge in how to tackle this insidious emotional state. Depression often robs us of the joy we so heartily want in life and can lead to feelings of loneliness, exhaustion and emotional isolation. Seeking help for depression is key to learning manage the thought processes that weigh down the body/mind during depressive episodes. My approach is rooted in mindfulness practices helping each person learn to track and trace their thought patterns related to depressive thinking and felt-sense emotions along with engaging the body in self-care activities aimed at building a health sense of self-efficacy.

Sometimes people feel depresed and can atribute it to stressful events that have occured, other times people can't quite put their finger on why they feel depressed, they just know they're not happy, feel unmotivated, and in some cases hopeless and helpless. What we now know about neuroscience helps us understand how and why depression occurs. I will help you determine whether your depression can be improved through talk therapy combined with some changes to your daily routine or whether a clinical depression has set in that may respond well to medication too. I have a wonderful, caring Doctor I work with who will assess clinical depression and offer recommendaitons if necessary.

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.

When 1 or both partners in a relationship are depressed, it can take a toll on the couple. It's very difficult to invest any energy or time into a relationship when you feel completely distant and overwhelmed by the day-to-day challenges you are up against. It's also difficult for a partner to really understand why depression is so intense and why it effects all of the different aspects of a relationship. I use research proven methods to help couples talk about their depression and what kind of impact it has had on them personally and on their relationship. You don't have to struggle with depression alone. Your partner can help you through it and I can show you how that works.

Depression is seen by some as a biochemical imbalance that is genetically transferred to the individual and can only be treated through medication. This might be part of the picture, but also a depressive, negative style of thinking can result in changes in the brain that bring about this unhealthy biochemical imbalance - and psychological treatment can change the thinking style that leads to this imbalance, rendering the individual to be free of reliance on medication and overall improved life that lasts on it's own merits.
