Depression is the common cold of our society. Most of us will experience it at some time. Typically, we are depressed because of something we have lost, something that has changed, or because we have been hurt. Some of us are sensitive and get hurt/depressed easily. I believe happiness is a series of choices that we can make regarding things that are in within our control.

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.

Do your depressive, ruminative thoughts emerge from the depression? Or do the thoughts trigger the experience of depression? The answer is Yes! Knowing the thought patterns involved and how you came to develop them and give them so much power lays the groundwork for shifting the depression. Those thought patterns evolve from numerous life experiences, often enhanced by changes in brain chemistry. While there are critical pieces for understanding and shifting the experience of depression, I choose and adapt the endless variety of tools according to your particular set of life stories. Bring a willingness, a commitment to be adventurous in your approach to the depression experience.
