Depression is something most people struggle with at one point in their lives. However, sometimes the depression becomes unmanageable and begins to bleed into our daily lives causing stress, strained relationships, and change in personality to the point that we no longer recognize who we are. My approach is to start where my clients are currently in their depression, creating small obtainable goals that they can meet, and providing encouragement and understanding during the treatment process. I teach skills like mindfulness and emotion regulation to help my clients manage their symptoms outside of the therapeutic environment.

Depression therapy can help you break the cycle of depressive symptoms such as lack of motivation, negative self-talk, sadness, social isolation, intense bouts of anger or irritable mood, and several other symptoms that create misery for you and disrupt your life. Psychological counseling for depression works by breaking this vicious cycle of symptoms that tends to feed on itself, making the symptoms even more intense. If you or a loved one are struggling with depression, I provide the support, encouragement and research-based strategies to help you cope.

I've been treating depression and bipolar since 1996 and it is what I do best from chronic lifelong depression to a sad mood that is based on temporary circumstances. I am a constant researcher because I write for several columns a month and keynote speaker at conferences so I am up to date on the implementation of current evidence based therapies that produce results. I am also in an office with a psychiatrist and two psychiatric nurse practitioners if medication management is needed. We all work together providing continuity of care. I am also a top referral source for several local hospitals when a patient is discharged due to depression, bipolar, and anxiety disorders.
