Depression warps us in to versions of ourselves that can be unrecognizable. In our relationships, depression can look like shutting down more often than connecting, blaming and becoming easily upset. Maybe you thought depression wouldn’t ever happen to you or maybe you have been in the battle for years. Either way, we want to help. Our approach is to help clients overcome the parts of depression they can and cope with the parts that can't. We will work to help you identify who you are, develop strategies what you want out of life and your relationships, and what gets in the way of you living the life you desire.

Depression can feel so heavy and disorienting. In fact, I'm not even a big fan of the word because it stirs in us the thought that we're alone and almost unable to be helped. But don't we all struggle with varying degrees of sadness? You may be experiencing what you feel like is all you can handle. Take heart, I believe we can be comforted and given hope in these hard places. I would love to help you pull out of it and be reoriented to the love and hope that we can find in a relationship with God.

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 a many faceted life challenge. Mary has experience in helping many people rise up from their depression issues. Many approaches working together are needed to find the right solution for depression. The whole body/whole mind approach appears to work well. We must look at every single aspect of what brought the depressive state on in the first place. Then, we try and correct the root of the problem while nurturing the body and the mind back to a state of well-being.

Depression is often a life draining evil that can be present in every area of our lives, oftentimes making it very difficult to function normally, or it can be a subtle nagging voice we listen to on a daily basis. However it manifests itself, it can cause significant damage to self-worth, can cause low physical energy, nagging pain and discomfort throughout the body, and lack of motivation and energy to make changes. Often times, it kills hope. Life does not have to be about just making it through the day! Let me help you discover the way out to a life full of satisfaction and hope.

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.

Narrative therapy is also used with clients suffering from depression.
