In our first few sessions, we will explore your beliefs about yourself and life. These beliefs arise from the patterns exhibited in your growing up years. We will also explore biological components to depression and help differentiate between depressive situations and a depressive brain. Discussions will include health questions, medication possibilities (referrral available for meds) and spiritual components to depression. I combine talk therapy with detective work to uncover patterns and offer solution based counseling for change.

Depression is a TREATABLE illness. Let's get that out of the way! I know that depression can make you feel helpless, but you are not helpless. Taking the first step is asking for help. There is no “one size fits all” treatment that cures depression so a client should not expect immediate results. It is important to be realistic about your symptoms and your goals. Treatment takes time and commitment from both of us. You are not alone.

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.

Depression comes in many forms and can be based in a genetic predisposition , situational response or post partum response. I help my clients explore the cause of their depressive symptoms and work closely with a skilled psychiatrist to assist with the medication moderation when necessary. Talking through some of the issues that may lead to greater expression of depressive symptoms is helpful through the therapy process. Simply taking pills to feel better is not sufficient. Learning new coping mechanisms and understanding the triggers that may lead to depression is a focus in the therapy that I conduct. Greater insight into these triggers reduces symptomatology for future overall function

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 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.

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.

Licensed Psychologist

Treatment of depression is designed to help patients explore the full range of their emotions, including feelings they may not be aware of. By making the nonconscious elements of their life a part of their present experience, therapy helps people understand how their behavior and mood are affected by unresolved issues and unconscious feelings. This can lead to a reduction in depression and an increase in positive feelings.

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.
