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.

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.

Depression sucks. It can make you feel hopeless, empty, and alone, even when things in your life are going well. Whether your depression is chemical, situational, or a combination of both, I can help you find ways to act against that depressed feeling and take steps towards feeling better. It is common for Depression to impact your sense of self-worth, and vice versa. Thus the most effective therapeutic treatment for Depression is to re-focus on the traits and values that define who you are as a person separate from that feeling; you can then use those strengths to fight the Depression and get back to feeling like your old self again. I specialize in treating Post-Partum Depression as well.
