I help people that struggle with depression find ways to highlight the areas of their life that cause them the most happiness. Often symptoms of depression cause people to lack the motivation to engage in activities that they might find bring them joy as well as decrease their depression symptoms. For example practicing mindfulness and gratitude might heighten the awareness of the individual to recognize the strengths they already possess.

“Stinkin’ thinkin’” isn’t what causes depression. It’s just one manifistation of this bewildering, joy-sucking, often recurring illness. The good news is that depressive illness does not last forever, even though it can feel like it. The not-so-good news is that for many people, depression is a recurrent illness that hides in the shadows and may strike without cause or warning. MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy) is an 8-week program that’s been scientifically-shown to prevent—or at least, decrease the likelihood of— recurrence in people who have suffered from 3 or more episodes of depression. It is a skill-based program that reduces the body’s vulnerability to depressive illness.

Depression is something that we all experience during some periods of life. However, when it becomes habitual and saps our feelings of inner joy and energy for life then it's time that we must do something about it. Often people who suffer from depression and become accustomed to it and feel hopeless about whether they can ever really change their mood. There is hope! With commitment to therapy and working on changing the underlying negative patterns of beliefs causing depression, there is every possibility of change.
