Depression is a real illness and carries with it a high cost in terms of relationship problems, family suffering and lost work productivity. Yet, depression is a highly treatable illness.

I've been treating depression and bipolar since 1996 and it is what I do best from chronic lifelong depression to a sad mood that is based on temporary circumstances. I am a constant researcher because I write for several columns a month and keynote speaker at conferences so I am up to date on the implementation of current evidence based therapies that produce results. I am also in an office with a psychiatrist and two psychiatric nurse practitioners if medication management is needed. We all work together providing continuity of care. I am also a top referral source for several local hospitals when a patient is discharged due to depression, bipolar, and anxiety disorders.

Often times depression becomes crippling for those who experience it and they don't have the energy to get out of bed, let alone, know how to create a change. Fatigue, constant sadness, lack of motivation and suicidal thoughts are common in those who suffer from depression and it's important to know that there is a way to manage those feelings and create a more fulfilling life. Through counseling we will address these very complicated issues.

Depression is an intruder. It gets in the way of personal happiness and pursuits. Depression also interferes in interpersonal relationships. So how do you deal with this intruder? Either you manage depression or it manages you. I assist my clients in developing coping strategies to manage depression so that it is less intrusive. Using modified thinking and acting strategies, individuals report improved mood and energy. I often hear my clients report, "I feel like myself again!"

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.

Everyone will feel depressed at some point in life, because it is part of being human. If the feelings of sadness are not addressed quickly and effectively, sadness may become long-term depression. Depression affects all parts of your psychological and physiological systems; altering your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. When your body becomes overwhelmed with a blanket of sadness, it is hard to get out from under it. This is why it is critical to seek expert intervention as quickly as possible. No one wants to go through their days or weeks feeling unhappy most of the time. Everyone deserves the time and attention necessary to feel better, including you.

Depression. The pain can be unbearable. The tears and fatigue can seem endless. The hopelessness can be physically palpable. None of this is your fault. Life is tough and the "human condition" gives us built-in frailties, flaws, and vulnerabilities. Some of us are more susceptible to depression triggers and stressors than others. But please do not despair. Do know that you can feel better. Evidence-based treatments, such as, cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT), acceptance and behavior therapy (ACT), and others have helped many people regain hope and rebuild satisfying relationships, careers, and lives. Take the first step toward hope and feeling better - please call for an appointment

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.

You may feel like you're drowning. With little motivation or energy, every task feels a million times harder than it should. You may feel completely alone; like no one could possibly understand your pain. How do I know? I've been there before. Depression is incredibly hard to manage alone. I know what it takes to overcome the challenge of depression and I regularly help my clients regain happiness in their lives too. During the therapy process, I help clients let go of things that aren't working anymore, regain their energy, motivation, happiness, and belief in themselves. Let me help you feel better!
