Living with depression hurts ... just getting from one day to the next feels like an effort. You may experience chronic sadness, irritability, and depression can be coupled with anxiety. Research shows that a combination of medication and talk therapy is most effective for treating depression. I can help you learn simple techniques to feel better immediately, such as changing irrational and unreasonable thoughts. I can also suggest non-drug therapies as appropriate. Finally, some depression is related to one's situation, so just changing some things in your life can make a BIG difference!! You don't have to live this way - you CAN feel better!!

Feelings of sadness and unhappiness are normal, usually come and go, and generally do not interfere with daily activities. Depression is all together different. Symptoms of depression may include persistent sadness, agitation, irritability, loosing interest in or not enjoying typical activities, decreased focus , changes in sleeping and eating habits, decreased energy, unexplained physical complaints, withdrawing from friends and family and not taking care of hygiene needs. Effective treatment includes a thorough assessment, talk therapy, possible medication, and lots of the right type of self care. I help people deal with depression regularly and will be happy to discuss this with you.
