When working with clients who suffer from depression, I create a safe and comfortable space where clients can feel honored and protected. I work with clients to discover how it is that they have come to struggle the way they do. I help them to practice self care and self respect during the times that they are down and live life without boundaries when they are in a good mental space. I help clients with depression to let go of the judgement they have of themselves or that they might hear from the world.

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.

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.

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 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!"
