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!

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.

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

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.

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 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 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.

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.

Depression comes in many forms and can be based in a genetic predisposition , situational response or post partum response. I help my clients explore the cause of their depressive symptoms and work closely with a skilled psychiatrist to assist with the medication moderation when necessary. Talking through some of the issues that may lead to greater expression of depressive symptoms is helpful through the therapy process. Simply taking pills to feel better is not sufficient. Learning new coping mechanisms and understanding the triggers that may lead to depression is a focus in the therapy that I conduct. Greater insight into these triggers reduces symptomatology for future overall function
