Depression — that unshakable, helpless, empty, heavy, irritated, or numb feeling — can be triggered by stressful life events, be it conflicts, life transitions; unresolved grief, relationship breakup, or impoverished relationships. Remember that stressful events in life do not cause depression. But depression often occurs within a reciprocal interpersonal context. You can overcome depression and get your life back with the support of counseling/therapy wherein you’ll learn new ways of perceiving and coping with problems with your family, friends, or co-workers; you’ll learn new ways of expressing yourself and interacting with people. You’ll regain a sense of control and pleasure in life.

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.

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.

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.

Do you have trouble dealing with daily stresses, trouble concentrating, are you more irritable or find that you have difficulty enjoying activities you used to like to do? Do you feel out of energy? Do you wake up in the early morning and can't get back to sleep. These may be signs of depression. Many people feel that "If I were stronger, I would not be depressed or sad". Being depressed is not a failure of willpower or a lack of being strong. Depression is a treatable condition. Understanding why you may be experiencing depression are part of treatment. You can experience reduction of these negative feelings, boost your self-worth, and feel joy and hope again.

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.
