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!!!

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.

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...

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

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.

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.

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.
