Depression counseling, because of its nature, requires commitment from both of us. Frequently I ask that you consult an MD about the value of medication in treating depression. It would allow you to more readily resolve the issues so that you are better able to find satisfactory ways to gain a perspective of your conflicts. This will allow you to move forward. There are books, workbooks, CD's, groups, all of which can be helpful.

Depression is not a one size fits all category. I individualized my approach to each person since I am treating a person and not a condition. Generally, we will need to address beliefs and one's way of living in their body as I have found that depression needs to be treated as both a mind/ body phenomenon. Often, we find unexpressed or suppressed emotion as a factor playing into one's depression. Learning how to express emotions will be covered when treating depression.
