My hope for you is that we don't just get rid of the feeling of being depressed, but we also work through the issues that caused the depression to manifest in your life so that you can experience peace and hope once again.

With an extensive medical background, I am aware of medical interventions and how you may not have gotten what you need from pharmaceuticals. More importantly, I understand that the context of your life is the most profound contribution to depression. Of course, genetics and dysfunctional neurological systems play a role. Together, we will discover which has the biggest influence and how to manage each.

Depression is felt by everyone at one time or another; however, if you are living under the cloud of depression, counseling will help you to discover new truths. Negative thoughts are often the result of the inablity to see truth. Cognitive Behavior therapy is used in session to help clients to change negative thought patters. Narrative therapy is also used with clients suffering from depression.

Depression can be invasive in our lives leading to withdrawal from others, anger, negative feelings towards self and others, trouble concentrating and making decisions, a change in sleeping habits, tearfulness, suicidal thoughts and/or attempts, and overall dissatisfaction with life and feeling unhappy. If you feel this may have taken over your life please call and we can evaluate the depth of your depression. I have two excellent tools that will help you determine the degree of your depression. We can look at the options together on how best to treat it, whether by medication from your physician and counseling or counseling and alternative therapies or just talk therapy alone.

Depression can be distressful and often times misunderstood or downplayed by others. Understanding that depression is a valid experience can help in taking the first steps to getting help. While medications are certainly valuable in some cases, it's still very important to address the underlying issues that may be also contributing to the depression. With our busy lifestyles, depression is on the rise. It's roughly ten times higher today than it was just two generations ago. Together we will assess your present and past experiences and formulate a plan to help you better understand what you are experiencing, what you can do about it and how to feel better.

People often think depression is something wrong with them, often though it has more to do with the wrong way people are relating to you. I work from a warm, empathic standpoint in which I try to enter your shoes and understand your experiences as you do, not as others do. Insight is not the main goal (although that certainly happens), rather formative moments of feeling tuned into, deeply understood and emotionally held are the goal. These offer new emotional experiences that really catalyze psychological growth and healing. Benefits include increased: feelings of vitality and realness, hope, self-esteem, emotion regulation, etc.

Most people who are seeking therapy for depression have been referred by their doctor or they are feeling like it is the last resort. They have been trying to do it all on their own and that is not working. Depression can be a short-term, situational issue or it can be something that you struggle with for life. The important thing is finding someone who understands what you are going through and how to help you come out on the other side. You don't have to do this all on your own. Let me help you discover what is causing your depression and things you can do to feel better and manage it. ** I also work with women who are experiencing post-partum depression.

Depression is the elephant on your back, that makes life almost impossible to manage, and can be triggered biologically or environmental. If you are taking an antidepressant prescribed by your family practitioner or a psychiatrist, participating in individual therapy is essential for recovery from depressive symptoms. Individual therapy can make it possible to have energy throughout the day, smile and laugh, experience joy, and feel hopeful about your day and future. For those who are in the depths of their depression, suicide becomes a real option. However therapy, and collaboration with a psychiatrist, can help someone see there are other options, and life is important to live.
