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.

Depression is a condition that affects millions of people. Many think that depression is just being sad or "down in the dumps" but this not the case.

If you feel you are depressed or may be at risk for depression please call me. I can help you overcome your feelings of depression and help you enjoy all of the things that once made you happy again.

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

Depression counseling focuses on trying to help you learn your triggers to depression, coping skills to lift you out of a depressive episode, and evaluation as to whether medication prescribed by a psychiatrist is in your best interests depending on the nature of your depression. We can also exlpore alternative therapy options for mild depressive symptoms. Regardless of the approach, the treatment plan is developed collaboratively with you.

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.

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!
