Depression is an intense sadness. Depression can take place as a normal reaction to certain life events. It can impact our thoughts, behavior, physical health, emotions, and view of the world. Therapy can include an examination of various areas of life (thoughts, conflicts, personal relationships) along with healthy vs. unhealthy habits to determine the best path to move you forward and enjoy life again.

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 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.

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 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.

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 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 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.

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.
