There are many forms of depression. Some people have a major depression needing both counseling and perhaps medication. Other people come in with low level depression or situational form following a loss or perhaps a trauma. Some people need to process their situation and see it from a different perspective along with exercise, connecting with other people, joining support groups, focusing on moments when they felt strong and competent. I will design, along with you, strategies to help manage the depression and bring hope back into your life.

We all have disappointments and failed dreams but sometimes depression sneaks up on us and steals the joy from even the small things. It is challenging to find the balance between struggling against versus giving in to the lethargy. I help people explore needs, wants, preferences and obligations in order to identify where to focus the current limited amounts of energy and what is most likely to create additional energy. I provide a safe space where you don't have to put on a fake smile, where you can talk about the things that everyone else is tired of hearing about, and where you can explore what your depression might be trying to tell you.

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).

Depression is one of the most difficult problems to treat in psychotherapy. Many times, a client may be too depressed to do the things that would help him/her feel better. When treating depressed clients, I take a detailed history to fully understand the timing and onset of depressive symptoms or episodes. Often, understanding the trigger behind a depressive episode can be helpful in fostering self-compassion in the client. We will also discuss and try to manage or change current stressors that are maintaining the depression. I recommend personalized self-care behaviors that have a positive effect on mood. Social support and social interaction are also recommended to combat isolation.

Are you feeling down? Do you have difficulty getting a good night sleep? Do you lack the energy or interest to do the things you once found interesting? Depression is a state of being that can impact us physically, psychologically, and spiritually. Depression can be overcome or greatly managed, but it does take work. Psychologically, the work requires you to become increasingly mindful of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Once we are able to see, we have the option to change.

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.

I approach Depression from several angles. 1)Lifestyle changes (adequate sleep, exercise, nutrition, fun activities), 2) Underlying beliefs about oneself that contribute to low self-esteem and shame, 3) Positive support system of friends and family, and 3) The possible need for medication or natural supplements if there seems to be a true brain chemistry imbalance that cannot be fully addressed just with regular therapy. I have found that ALL of these areas must be addressed in order to effectively treat Depression.

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.
