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.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

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.

A very useful book is "The Instinct to Heal: Treating Anxiety and Depression Without Drugs or Talk Therapy" - written by a psychiatrist who is also a specialist in integrative medicine. Research shows that Omega 3 fatty acids (fish oils), exercise, thought-changing, Dr. Pennebaker writing techniques, light therapy and a simple biofeedback process called HeartMath can all help resolve depression. I offer all these interventions to my clients. Together we will find the right combination of treatments for you.

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.

My personal experience with depression has given me helpful knowledge in how to tackle this insidious emotional state. Depression often robs us of the joy we so heartily want in life and can lead to feelings of loneliness, exhaustion and emotional isolation. Seeking help for depression is key to learning manage the thought processes that weigh down the body/mind during depressive episodes. My approach is rooted in mindfulness practices helping each person learn to track and trace their thought patterns related to depressive thinking and felt-sense emotions along with engaging the body in self-care activities aimed at building a health sense of self-efficacy.

Depression counseling, because of its nature, requires commitment from both of us. Frequently I ask that you consult an MD about the value of medication in treating depression. It would allow you to more readily resolve the issues so that you are better able to find satisfactory ways to gain a perspective of your conflicts. This will allow you to move forward. There are books, workbooks, CD's, groups, all of which can be helpful.
