I believe in the importance of providing an integrated approach emphasizing positive self-care, a renewed hope in oneself and one's circumstances, , and making effective life choices for promoting positive feelings. Without ignoring physiology of depression, it is essential to understand that depression may stem from issues relating to lower self-worth, non-utilized coping skills, and negative life circumstances.

Living with depression hurts ... just getting from one day to the next feels like an effort. You may experience chronic sadness, irritability, and depression can be coupled with anxiety. Research shows that a combination of medication and talk therapy is most effective for treating depression. I can help you learn simple techniques to feel better immediately, such as changing irrational and unreasonable thoughts. I can also suggest non-drug therapies as appropriate. Finally, some depression is related to one's situation, so just changing some things in your life can make a BIG difference!! You don't have to live this way - you CAN feel better!!

Depression is a word that is thrown around a lot these days. In therapy, you'll learn the difference between feeling sad and being stuck in a state of depression. You'll be able to recognize the root causes of your depression which often times have to do with unmet expectations or needs, how you view yourself and God, and/or unresolved grief or relational conflict. I look forward to helping you live life to the full!

Depression comes in many different shapes, colors and sizes. It is not a one size fits all experience. Depression can be anything from feeling "blue" or sad for an extended period of time to feeling helpless, hopeless or like a burden, to thoughts of suicide. No matter where you might be on the depression spectrum, it can be helpful to seek counseling. My approach in treating depression is to assist you in identifying patterns of thought and behavior that may be contributing to your experience of depression. Identifying negative thought or behavior patterns is helpful in determining which new coping skills would benefit you the most in treating your depression.

Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel as if life isn't worth living. Using cognitive behavioral approaches, clients can learn to identify negative beliefs and behaviors and replace them with healthy, positive ones. We explore relationships and experiences, and work to develop positive interactions with others. And find better ways to cope and solve problems.

Depression is more common than most people realize, but while it's not easy to recover, there is great hope. Using compassion and a supportive environment, as well as learning some tools, one can get back to a good level of motivation and functioning. For example, some tools are helping people understand how they think and how that contributes to the repetitive thinking they tend to experience.

Depression is often the symptom of a story unprocessed, a chemical imbalance, or extremely pent up anger. If your story is about staying invisible your whole life, perhaps being invisible isn’t working for you any longer and depression has covered you in a dark cloud as you try to be seen. Or perhaps you have an untold story about that one moment in middle school when the bully found you alone in the bathroom. What did you believe about yourself afterward? How did it affect your shame? Depression can also be a chemical imbalance and might require medication for a season. Perhaps even being on the medication is a source of pain and it would be nice to couple medication with counseling.

Moments of depression will likely hit just about everyone, but for some it can last a long time, and may even get worse. If you have been told by someone that you look sad or gloomy all the time, or you just can't seem to get out of bed or function as normal, you are likely depressed. People get depressed for a variety of reasons, such as job loss, death or sickness of a loved one, financial stress, a child misbehaving or doing poor in school, or relationship conflcts. Sometime the depression just won't go away on its own. Depression can be caused by a variety of reasons and I would like to help you discover how you can begin to live your life again.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Depression is one of the most common, least understood, and least treated difficulties facing individuals and families today. Sometimes it can seem like a dark cloud simply won’t leave us alone, and we’re waiting for the sun to come burn it away. Effective treatment for depression addresses both external factors--like a person’s environment--and internal factors--such as thought and behavior patterns. I enjoy helping my clients regain their zest for living and once again enjoy being with family and friends and living out their God-given purpose.
