We all have times we feel so down that it is hard to get up in the morning or to any motivation to accomplish anything. This is something that can deeply affect our lives and relationships. Therefore it is necessary to seek help in order for you to become the "old me," again. I will work with you on exploring your depression and empower you to lift yourself out of it.

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 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.

Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker

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 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 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 Counselor

Jessica Willemsen, MSW, LSCSW, LMAC, LCSW

Clinical Social Worker and Addiction Counselor

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 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.
