I have a lot of background in treating patients with depression. I have achieved great results with people with certain forms of depression by making changes in their lifestyles, as well as cognitive behavioral changes. However, sometimes a patient's depression is too severe and talk therapy is not enough without medication. I work with a network of caring psychiatrists that have helped my patients with serious depression.

Depression is an energy disorder, a thief of enjoyment, accomplishment, connection with others, and self-care. It comes in many forms and facades. You can feel helpless not being able to change your feelings. Depression can be scary and cannot be reasoned away. I can help you identify, understand and regulate difficult emotions, and find a workable plan to address how difficult it can be.

Depression is something most everyone experiences to some degree in their lifetime. Some people may even feel suicidal at times. It is different from sadness or bereavement. And there are different types of depression and with a variety of causes. As a therapist, the first step is to understand the cause of the suffering. This may require open mindedness and non-judgement. I will use a variety of techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy,Mindfulness and Assertiveness Skill Building to help people move beyond apathy, low mood and hopelessness to a place of confidence, energy, and hopefulness.

Depression is miserable! I work to accurately diagnose the severity of depression. This leads to devising a treatment plan with my client that immediately ensures their safety and begins to address their recovery. We determine if a psychiatric referral for medication is warranted. And we start working on the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are driving the depression.

People suffering from depression have more negative thoughts about themselves, the world, and the future. Those who are depressed also tend to feel more helpless, hopeless and worthless. Research with depressed individuals suggests that treatment focusing on changing peoples’ thought (cogntive behavioral therapy) is a particularly effective treatment for depression. CBT as part of a comprehensive treatment plan is a very effective approach to treating depression.

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.

Depression is seen by some as a biochemical imbalance that is genetically transferred to the individual and can only be treated through medication. This might be part of the picture, but also a depressive, negative style of thinking can result in changes in the brain that bring about this unhealthy biochemical imbalance - and psychological treatment can change the thinking style that leads to this imbalance, rendering the individual to be free of reliance on medication and overall improved life that lasts on it's own merits.
