Depression affects most people at some point in their lives. It can last a short time, or never really go away. Medication can help you feel better, but it doesn’t give you tools to handle life in a way that allows you to enjoy each day and look forward to a good future. I will work with you to determine the factors that led to depressed feelings, recognize and control the thoughts that defeat you before you start, and set realistic expectations for yourself and others. You can gain a sense of purpose and possibilities instead of hopelessness and helplessness.

Symptoms of depression include: feeling down in the dumps, changes in sleep, appetite or sex drive, crying spells, feeling hopeless, not wanting to do things you used to enjoy, withdrawing from people. Anger can also be a sign of depression. Some folks who are severely depressed can’t get out of bed or brush their teeth. Some folks even think about or consider suicide as an option. If you are feeling this way, you need not suffer alone. Research shows that psychotherapy is as effective as medication in treating depression. With regular ongoing psychotherapy, I will help you get a plan of action to move slowly and steadily toward your goals, and reclaim your hope again!

It is said that depression is anger turned inward. This is often true. It is also true that depression can be biological and physiological. We assess your depression through a depression inventory and identify what is best for you in terms of talk therapy or medication and/or both. Untreated depression leads to it getting worse causing folks to act on their suicidal thoughts and behaviors. It doesn't have to get that far. Help is available.

Depression can be hard to recognize, presenting it self as fatigue, irritability, anger, guilt, anxiety, loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed, etc. It can be quite debilitating as you find it difficult to motivate yourself to do daily activities of life. Depression can be linked to unhealthy thoughts. With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, studies show how one thinks impacts one's mood and behavior. I will help you identify depressive thoughts. Together, we will work to challenge and replace those thoughts to improve your mood and overcome depression.

One of my favorite trick questions to ask patients hospitalized for depression was, "Is the sky ever grey?" Even though most of the time I TOLD them it was a trick question, they usually said, "Yes." Just like the sky only looks grey because clouds are covering up the sun, we can often FEEL "grey" when depression is covering us. My goal is to help you to get rid of the cloud so that your life can be what it was intended to be.

Depression is often caused by the negative experiences which have impacted us. Instead of avoiding the negatives experiences we need to understand them. However, often what happens is that too many individuals are focused on the negative. When that occurs the negative usually expands. Learning to minimize the negative and expan the positive is one insightful tool everyone should use. Depression is something I personally have struggled with in my personal life so I have my own insights to share in conquering depression.

Depression is one of the most misunderstood of all the emotional difficulties. Often it is described as a medical condition, due to chemical imbalances in the brain that require treatment through medication. And while this is sometimes true, in the vast majority of the cases depression is a natural condition, in response to stressors and unresolved problems in life. In most instances, medication treats the symptoms of depression, but not the causes and thus the factors causing depression will remain, untreated and dependent on drugs to keep them at bay. Good therapy successfully treats the causes of depression, thus relieving the symptoms of depression. It is work, but healing is permanent.

It is normal for people to have moments when the challenges of living seem to be overwhelming--when we doubt our own ability to persist in the face of opposition and/or failure. I use the word depression to describe the many ways in which lives become organized around self-doubt, loss of energy, and anticipation of failure. My Identity Renegotiation perspective helps people reorganize the stories they tell themselves--and the ways they relate to others--to overcome doubt and find hope, potential, and promise.

Whether it is a sense that something is not quite right, or heightened irritability, or a sense of hopelessness and exhaustion, the experience of depression needs attention. When self-harm is a risk, the overwhelming concern is for safety, getting the client into care, for example, an emergency room. In treatment the starting point for understanding depression is the simple question, "Why am I feeling this way?" Whatever technique the therapist employs, trust between client and therapist is the key to finding answers. My work attends to the client's story, the two of us working together to trace the roots of the troubling feelings. Referral for medication can be important.

I am a psychotherapist who understands life can feel like a daily struggle. No one should have to endure these feelings alone. As a professional counselor, I compassionately listen and support clients as well as offer a therapeutic relationship that provides clients the opportunity to emotionally move forward and bring a healthy balance back into their lives. It is possible to heal, gain a sense of well-being, restore hope, and rekindle happiness even during the most challenging times. Clients that experience less depression often feel more relaxed, increased energy, less stressed, motivated, experience satisfaction in relationships, and have an easier time coping with life difficulties.

Are you or a loved one depressed? Then you probably realize just how hard it is to shake depression, once it takes hold. Depression cheats everything; it cheats you, your loved ones, the people trying to help you. It lowers immune functioning and causes physical pain. It hurts every domain of your life and has a ripple effect that reaches into all of your experiences, your idea of self, your ability to hope, or to think, or be creative, or even love! Whether you just don't enjoy things like you used to or don't enjoy anything, if you struggle with depression, you are on a slippery slope, because depression will cloud your judgment! Here, two minds are definitely better than one: Reach out...
