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.

Karen’s approach in assisting people suffering from depression varies with each person. She initially searches for the reasons causing the depression, and together she and the client will pursue the changes needed to alleviate the symptoms. Karen uses the word picture with her clients of viewing depression as being down in a valley, and by putting the accepted interventions into practice, she can assist them in climbing out of the valley. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a well researched therapy that has been shown to be effective in treating people suffering from depression, and this is the intervention Karen most often uses along with other accepted techniques.

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 can leave you feeling physically and emotionally exhausted. It can be hard to complete simple tasks, go to work or care for ourselves; being overloaded with thoughts has zapped your energy. But, there's hope for a way out through therapy. I utilize Cognitive and dialectical behavior therapies, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, and person centered therapy to help you overcome the internal battle that keeps you from getting better.

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.

When 1 or both partners in a relationship are depressed, it can take a toll on the couple. It's very difficult to invest any energy or time into a relationship when you feel completely distant and overwhelmed by the day-to-day challenges you are up against. It's also difficult for a partner to really understand why depression is so intense and why it effects all of the different aspects of a relationship. I use research proven methods to help couples talk about their depression and what kind of impact it has had on them personally and on their relationship. You don't have to struggle with depression alone. Your partner can help you through it and I can show you how that works.

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.

Depressive symptoms can stem from a variety of sources in an individual’s life usually reflecting a sense of loss. While medications can be helpful, it’s the behavioral symptoms associated with depression that can leave a lingering impact even after the depressive symptoms have stated to improve. Being pulled into depressive experiences over and over reflects both habits that can be difficult to break and/or subconscious issues that have yet to be addressed. Through processes such as hypnotherapy that address the whole person, we are able to capture a wider range of challenges and help the individual to regain the ground lost to he depressive illness.
