If you have found yourself experiencing prolonged periods of sadness, lack of interest in activities that normally interest you, feeling chronically tired or weighted down, or difficulty with sleep, you may be experiencing symptoms of depression. Depression is a very common and treatable condition. In therapy with me, we will spend some time obtaining some background information and what is causing your mood disturbance. We will work on discovering the underlying cause of your sadness, as well as recurrent themes or patterns that repeat themselves. Once you have a better understanding of your sadness, we can begin to work on developing coping strategies and making real and lasting changes.

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.
