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

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

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.

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...

Feeling consistently unhappy, or so unhappy you can't function, is a problem you can overcome. Depression can make negative emotions feel overwhelming and keep you from participating in activities you would normally enjoy. Depression does not have to control your life. In counseling, we can work to identify a specific plan that will increase positive activities, improve sleep, and increase your overall sense of wellbeing. You will learn how your thought patterns and behaviors can affect your mood.

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!
