Depression can be paralyzing and make it challenging to have the motivation to take care of daily life activities. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) can provide insight to your emotions and help with identify values that you want to live by. We can work together to not allow depressive symptoms to determine how you live your life. We will identify commitments that will build positive experiences and decrease depressive symptoms. The first step and often the most difficult is making an appointment and coming in for your first session, and you will begin feeling better once you do!

In our work together clients often find hope by actively discussing their life issues, often their shame and anger at themselves and others for the predicaments they are a part of. Depression can be harmful medically and medical issues can cause depression. It can kill. I work well with the medical community, referring when necessary,

It can be very challenging to live day to day life when we are feeling chronically sad, overwhelmed, disconnected or lonely. To help people who are feeling depressed I meet them where they are at & seek to understand what they are thinking & feeling & how those thoughts & feelings are negatively affecting them. I find out what their ideal life would be - their hops & their dreams - what life would look like if they were no longer sad or depressed & I work with them to take small action steps to help them to feel stronger, happier, more fulfilled.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been identified as the treatment of choice for depression. Whether you are on medication or not, CBT strategies can offer relief from the heavy weight of depressive symptoms. Kari's clients gain an understanding of what makes someone vulnerable to depression, how to increase motivation, energy, and positive mood. They will learn how to react to difficult situations with control and composure and better combat depressive tendencies in the future.

Research has shown that the most effective approach to depression is a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and medication (if appropriate). I provide compassionate support for the painful challenges of depression while teaching you to develop effective coping strategies including the ability to lessen negative thinking and increase their enjoyment of daily life. If you are taking or want to try anti-deprresants, I can help with medication management. I also help family members of those with depression manage the stress it causes them as well as learn to use effective approaches to support their relative.

Everyone will feel depressed at some point in life, because it is part of being human. If the feelings of sadness are not addressed quickly and effectively, sadness may become long-term depression. Depression affects all parts of your psychological and physiological systems; altering your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. When your body becomes overwhelmed with a blanket of sadness, it is hard to get out from under it. This is why it is critical to seek expert intervention as quickly as possible. No one wants to go through their days or weeks feeling unhappy most of the time. Everyone deserves the time and attention necessary to feel better, including you.
