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.

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!

Depression strikes indiscriminately-male and female, young and old, rich and poor. It can be caused by a variety of events, such as abuse, the death of a loved one, and seasonal changes. It can also run in the family. Unfortunately, you can’t simply snap out of depression. Depression isn’t “pouting” or “feeling sorry for yourself." However, help is available and many have found dynamic, sustained relief through psychotherapy. At Thriveworks, our therapists use a variety of proven approaches that work to combat depression. Depression is like one of those big boxes labeled “TEAM LIFT.” It’s a lot easier to handle when you have someone to help out. Let us help you lift the weight of depression

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.

I have successfully helped many clients reduce/eliminate symptoms of depression using a variety of techniques based on the client's individual presentation. I spend the first session taking a complete history to gain a full understanding of the client's current and past experience with depression, it's impact on functioning and past treatments. No 2 clients are the same, therefore I strive to meet client's "where they are" and develop treatment goals that are specific to their individual need that will return them to their desired level of functioning.

What you can benefit from when I treat you for depression is a healthier life with more hope and happiness. Often what I find is that there are circumstances that have hurt my client, sometimes without them even realizing the impact this has had in their life. I help them ID the unresolved problems, and then we can desensitize the impact in their lives. Let me help you!!!
