My approach will vary depending on the severity of the depression. The first importance is stability of well being. From there I will work on thoughts, feelings, and behaviors working towards short terms goals. Goals will include small behavior changes that will help to be building blocks and also cognitive work on realistic truths. Often things like sleep, nutrition, and exercise are also evaluated and improved in the process as ways to counter depression.

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.

Depression is seen by some as a biochemical imbalance that is genetically transferred to the individual and can only be treated through medication. This might be part of the picture, but also a depressive, negative style of thinking can result in changes in the brain that bring about this unhealthy biochemical imbalance - and psychological treatment can change the thinking style that leads to this imbalance, rendering the individual to be free of reliance on medication and overall improved life that lasts on it's own merits.

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.

Depression can be biological or situational. It should always be taken seriously, and a person who believes they are suffering from depression should see their doctor, a counselor, or if they have suicidal ideas or thoughts, then they should call 911 or go to their closest emergency room. The suicide hotline # is !-800-273-Talk. I'm an expert in this and I'll help pave the way for you. Brain chemicals and hormones may be a factor in this, but there also may be situations such as a death of someone close, even the loss of a pet, loss of a job, divorce, loss of a baby, PPD...People with depression definitely DO NOT need to be told "get over it". It is a legitimate concern. Don't be a judge!

Depression is something most everyone experiences to some degree in their lifetime. Some people may even feel suicidal at times. It is different from sadness or bereavement. And there are different types of depression and with a variety of causes. As a therapist, the first step is to understand the cause of the suffering. This may require open mindedness and non-judgement. I will use a variety of techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy,Mindfulness and Assertiveness Skill Building to help people move beyond apathy, low mood and hopelessness to a place of confidence, energy, and hopefulness.

Depression is an energy disorder, a thief of enjoyment, accomplishment, connection with others, and self-care. It comes in many forms and facades. You can feel helpless not being able to change your feelings. Depression can be scary and cannot be reasoned away.

Karen’s approach in assisting people suffering from depression varies with each person. She initially searches for the reasons causing the depression, and together she and the client will pursue the changes needed to alleviate the symptoms. Karen uses the word picture with her clients of viewing depression as being down in a valley, and by putting the accepted interventions into practice, she can assist them in climbing out of the valley. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a well researched therapy that has been shown to be effective in treating people suffering from depression, and this is the intervention Karen most often uses along with other accepted techniques.
