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.

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.
