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.

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 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.

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!!!

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.

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.
