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 counseling, because of its nature, requires commitment from both of us. Frequently I ask that you consult an MD about the value of medication in treating depression. It would allow you to more readily resolve the issues so that you are better able to find satisfactory ways to gain a perspective of your conflicts. This will allow you to move forward. There are books, workbooks, CD's, groups, all of which can be helpful.

Depressive symptoms can stem from a variety of sources in an individual’s life usually reflecting a sense of loss. While medications can be helpful, it’s the behavioral symptoms associated with depression that can leave a lingering impact even after the depressive symptoms have stated to improve. Being pulled into depressive experiences over and over reflects both habits that can be difficult to break and/or subconscious issues that have yet to be addressed. Through processes such as hypnotherapy that address the whole person, we are able to capture a wider range of challenges and help the individual to regain the ground lost to he depressive illness.

Being mired in depression is one of the worst feelings in life. When someone feels like they have been turned upside down and the life has been poured out of them - it may seem like an impossible dream to feel better. But depression is often treatable. I approach depression work from a cognitive, behavioral and emotional approach. Once the mood starts to life we then can delve deeper into why you are depressed in the first place to help keep you from going down that hole again.

My approach will vary depending on the severity of the depression. The first importance is stability of well being. From there I will work on thoughts, feelings, and behaviors working towards short terms goals. Goals will include small behavior changes that will help to be building blocks and also cognitive work on realistic truths. Often things like sleep, nutrition, and exercise are also evaluated and improved in the process as ways to counter depression.
