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.

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.

Depression Counselor

Aaron Mitchum, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Osawatomie

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.

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.
