Do you have trouble dealing with daily stresses, trouble concentrating, are you more irritable or find that you have difficulty enjoying activities you used to like to do? Do you feel out of energy? Do you wake up in the early morning and can't get back to sleep. These may be signs of depression. Many people feel that "If I were stronger, I would not be depressed or sad". Being depressed is not a failure of willpower or a lack of being strong. Depression is a treatable condition. Understanding why you may be experiencing depression are part of treatment. You can experience reduction of these negative feelings, boost your self-worth, and feel joy and hope again.

Depression — that unshakable, helpless, empty, heavy, irritated, or numb feeling — can be triggered by stressful life events, be it conflicts, life transitions; unresolved grief, relationship breakup, or impoverished relationships. Remember that stressful events in life do not cause depression. But depression often occurs within a reciprocal interpersonal context. You can overcome depression and get your life back with the support of counseling/therapy wherein you’ll learn new ways of perceiving and coping with problems with your family, friends, or co-workers; you’ll learn new ways of expressing yourself and interacting with people. You’ll regain a sense of control and pleasure in life.

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.

When working with clients who suffer from depression, I create a safe and comfortable space where clients can feel honored and protected. I work with clients to discover how it is that they have come to struggle the way they do. I help them to practice self care and self respect during the times that they are down and live life without boundaries when they are in a good mental space. I help clients with depression to let go of the judgement they have of themselves or that they might hear from the world.

I use Acceptance Commitment Therapy(ACT)in addressing depression. ACT encourages clients to experience their feelings, rather than to try to avoid them. It also helps them to shift their focus from trying to stop being depressed to living their lives--engaging in actions that are in line with their values. Although these ideas may sound counterintuitive at first blush, they help people to lead fuller, richer lives. My clients often are surprised to find that their depression is no longer in the driving seat, but is playing a very minor--if any--role in their lives.

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.
