I work with individuals who are feeling down as a result of experiencing some stressful life events. Symptoms of depression are common in the days and weeks following a stressful life event. By talking through your situation you will begin to feel better much more quickly than by trying to carry it alone. My approach is to assist you in changing your perspective about what is going on and to identify specific actions you can take that will help you feel better.

Everyone feels sad or down occasionally, but if feelings of despair and hopeless have taken hold of your life and just won't go away, you may be suffering from depression. Identifying depression in yourself and learning more about it is the first step to overcoming it and leading a happier existence. Depression drains your energy and isn't always that easy to "snap out of" once it has taken root. I will work with you to help you find ways to cope with your depression and help you get back to feeling like yourself.

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!"

I use Acceptance Commitment Therapy(ACT)in addressing depression. ACT encourages clients to experience their feelings, rather than to try to avoid them. It also helps them to shift their focus from trying to stop being depressed to living their lives--engaging in actions that are in line with their values. Although these ideas may sound counterintuitive at first blush, they help people to lead fuller, richer lives. My clients often are surprised to find that their depression is no longer in the driving seat, but is playing a very minor--if any--role in their lives.

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.

Research has provided significant evidence that depression can be improved or even eliminated with a wide range of interventions. Although many believe that the “gold standard” treatment for depression is medication and talk therapy, I believe that the least intrusive intervention should be targeted first. Try talking to a therapist before getting medication prescribed. I will help you examine how you’re thinking about the problem may be actually supporting your depression, how your relationships may be contributing to your sense of sadness and frustration and how you can begin to make concrete behavioral modifications to begin the path to recovery. Recent studies show that medication is most eff....
