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.

As a mental health professional of considerable experience I've worked with individuals and couples with issues of demoralization, depressed mood and various forms of acute and long-standing depression. Depression isn't only an individual matter. as it sucks the life out of a couple and a family. In our work together clients often find hope by actively discussing their life issues, often their shame and anger at themselves and others for the predicaments they are a part of.

Depression has been called "anger turned inwards" and it seems that when a person talks about their depression, they may have hurt and anger underneath it. It's typically not easy to get to these complex feelings and subjects alone. With counseling, the layers are peeled away, the emotions find relief and the person begins to feel better. Depression is treatable.

Depression can happen to anyone and does happen to one in four of us over our lifetimes. Different factors that make it more likely to happen include biological make-up, upbringing, and our reaction to life events. Furthermore, depression is often accompanied by other feelings such as guilt, shame, anger, and anxiety. The good news is that therapy is a very effective way of eliminating depression. When you see me for therapy to treat depression, we will identify any events contributing to it and create a plan together to help you feel better. Give me a call today for a free consultation and we can put together a preliminary plan over the telephone.

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.
