I use primarily a CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) approach to help individuals identify their maladaptive thought and behavioral patterns as well as their strengths and support systems. We focus on techniques to help anticipate mood shifts, incorporate cognitive and behavioral techniques to intervene in specific manifestations of depression, and generate new and more adaptive cognitive and behavioral patterns. Treatment is individualized and at your pace.

Do your depressive, ruminative thoughts emerge from the depression? Or do the thoughts trigger the experience of depression? The answer is Yes! Knowing the thought patterns involved and how you came to develop them and give them so much power lays the groundwork for shifting the depression. Those thought patterns evolve from numerous life experiences, often enhanced by changes in brain chemistry. While there are critical pieces for understanding and shifting the experience of depression, I choose and adapt the endless variety of tools according to your particular set of life stories. Bring a willingness, a commitment to be adventurous in your approach to the depression experience.

No matter the cause, Depression or a depressed mood often affect our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Whether it's a normal reaction to a life circumstance or because of a more clinical reason, my approach to coping is a behavioral one. Once certain connections are made and clients discover that they do have the power to change their thoughts and behaviors, momentum of an increased sense of well-being can take place.

Depression is the common cold of our society. Most of us will experience it at some time. Typically, we are depressed because of something we have lost, something that has changed, or because we have been hurt. Some of us are sensitive and get hurt/depressed easily. I believe happiness is a series of choices that we can make regarding things that are in within our control.

We can develop a treatment plan that will help you effectively manage your depression and equip you with tools to help you cope with it when it becomes seemingly unbearable.

Clients may find relief for their depression with cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT). CBT examines a client's faulty thought patterns that may be contributing to depression and helps to restructure those thought patterns into more adaptive patterns. Thoughts are examined for origin, strength of belief in the thought, and validity. Holistic strategies are approached, including, but not limited to, physical activity, nutrition, sleeping patterns, and biofeedback.
