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.

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.

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!

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 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

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 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.

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.
