Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel as if life isn't worth living. Using cognitive behavioral approaches, clients can learn to identify negative beliefs and behaviors and replace them with healthy, positive ones. We explore relationships and experiences, and work to develop positive interactions with others. And find better ways to cope and solve problems.

Everyone can experience sadness at times, but depression Is considered to be something more. Depression can affect individuals differently with some of those symptoms being: Feeling of helplessness, emptiness, worthlessness or guilt, irritability, and anger, appetite changes, stomachs, or even headaches. Amy believes that depression is not a sign of weakness, nor is it something that you can quickly snap out of. Depression can be caused by a combo of biological, genetic, psychological, environmental and social factors. Amy works with her clients to find ways to accept, adapt or change those depressive life events once pinpointed, and set realistic goals for their future.

Feelings of sadness and unhappiness are normal, usually come and go, and generally do not interfere with daily activities. Depression is all together different. Symptoms of depression may include persistent sadness, agitation, irritability, loosing interest in or not enjoying typical activities, decreased focus , changes in sleeping and eating habits, decreased energy, unexplained physical complaints, withdrawing from friends and family and not taking care of hygiene needs. Effective treatment includes a thorough assessment, talk therapy, possible medication, and lots of the right type of self care. I help people deal with depression regularly and will be happy to discuss this with you.

Depression comes in many different shapes, colors and sizes. It is not a one size fits all experience. Depression can be anything from feeling "blue" or sad for an extended period of time to feeling helpless, hopeless or like a burden, to thoughts of suicide. No matter where you might be on the depression spectrum, it can be helpful to seek counseling. My approach in treating depression is to assist you in identifying patterns of thought and behavior that may be contributing to your experience of depression. Identifying negative thought or behavior patterns is helpful in determining which new coping skills would benefit you the most in treating your depression.
