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 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 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 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.

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

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.

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.
