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 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 can be a dark, gloomy, scary place. Some describe it as feeling lost in a forest, others like a they are engulfed in a dark black cloud. Maybe you have found yourself in a place similar. I specialize in depression as well as other mental health concerns such as anxiety, which can often surface with depressive symptoms. 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 leave us immobilized, unable to do the things in life that we normally do without much effort. At the heart of it is the pain of disconnection that leaves a person feeling alone and isolated. I'll help you clarify the messages you're telling yourself that are keeping you stuck, and work through the related emotions, so that you come to a place of motivation to take the next step that will lead to a fulfilling life.

Depression can leave us wishing we could crawl into a hole or float off away from our difficulties. Some have described it as “a dark night in the soul.” Often, a caring and unbiased professional can help you to find the light again and get you back to living a life you've been wishing for. I use evidence based therapeutic technique as an intervention for depression. I believe that you are not "sick", I believe that you are struggling with mental health, which makes you human. I have been there and I will go there with you.
