Having worked my way through my own depression/hell on earth, with the help of a professional to 'guide' me, I have learned the importance of 'working together' in a way that combines use of: a) what I bring in the way of safety, empathy, presence, patience, curiosity, and practical tools; with b) your own ability to risk venturing into some dark & difficult territories -- dealing with demons such as: apathy, emptiness, meaninglessness, disappointment, disillusionment, hopelessness, stuckness, loneliness, shame, guilt, self-disgust, unmet expectations, unfulfilled dreams, losses, ambiguity, confusion, fallibility, fears, doubts, imperfections, insecurities and whatever others may emerge.

Depression is sometimes referred to as the "common cold" of mental health. At its root depression is about loss and loss always in some way has to do with love. In depression we lose a sense of connection to ourselves, to our relationships, to our tasks and even to God. In therapy, I provide a safe environment where you can face your sadness and loss, talk about it and reconnect in a caring place. Healing comes as deep pain is brought into loving and compassionate connection.

What if you knew that your brain has a built-in way to stop depression from dragging you down? Depression is a natural mind-state that every human knows, but sometimes depression locks onto us and won't let go. If this is happening to you, we can show you how to level the playing field in your favor, without medication. Not all counseling approaches tap into recent neurological research that shows that you can learn to separate from depressed parts of your mind and build new channels within you that are not clogged with depression static. Visit our detailed website or call to learn more about this modern approach to transform your depression and start living the life you've been missing!

Although their are various symptoms attributed to depression, at its core it involves a loss of one's sense of passion and purpose in living. I help people recover their lost sense of passion and purpose by helping them look deep inside themselves for what they have lost. It is not easy work, but it is very rewarding. Once this work is done, the symptoms of depression are no longer needed.

Depression breeds hopelessness, a pervasive darkness that can make it difficult to reach for help. You may feel a low grade of chronic depression in which you can function but rarely seem to enjoy anything you do. Or it may feel like there’s a refrigerator on your chest, making it difficult to even get out of bed. Others around you don’t understand, telling you to “cheer up” or “get over it,” not understanding why your mood is so low. While the best results are often a combination of therapy and medication, therapy alone is often successful in treating depression. Good therapy will provide a path out of depression, a journey that has you feeling better and more hopeful along the way.

We all experience ups and downs in life. This is normal and pat of living life. However, depression is characterized by feelings that are much more intense, let longer, and interfere more intensely with day-to-day functioning and interaction with other people. It is a serious condition that can impact every aspect of your life. It can affect your family relationships, work relationship, and impact negatively on your sense of self worth. Depression is very treatable. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is our primary approach to treating depression and it has been proven to be effective for most forms of depression and even to prevent the occurrence of future depressive episodes.

In our culture we often speak about depression as being one thing that affects many people in the same way. In reality, depression is many things, that shows up differently in different people, has different causes and therefore different treatment approaches in counseling. Some causes of depression can include- mechanisms in the brain, current life situation and stress, unresolved issues from childhood, unresolved grief of loss, of feeling "stuck" in life. Each of these deserves to be explored and treated uniquely and each can effectively respond to counseling. You may be surprised at how much relief you can experience just by evenunderstanding your own depression more clearly.

Resident in Counseling, Supervised by Thomas Lamp, LPC

I view depression from existential, cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, social learning, systems, and medical models. I view that shame, low self-concept, and deeper identity and existential issues often do underlie moderate and severe depression, and support SSRI or SNRI interventions for postpartum moms and clients with moderate to severe depression, with recurrence. I employ assessments and CBT homework assignments to help clients reduce their negative cognitive lens, and encourage client resilience through positive coping skills (e.g. exercise), meaning-making, and positive psychology exercises (e.g. gratitude and altruism).
