Cognitive behavioral therapy is considered the gold-standard in treating depression, so we will likely start there. In addition, we will spend time delving into your past, how you grew up, and formative times in your life to see if any of these may be contributing to depression your life.

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.

In my work with depression, I have found that it's often like a big, thick lens that distorts the worldview of the person I'm working with. Along with the distortion is a draining away of energy, motivation, and hope. I help the person see this lens, to understand its impacts, and to identify what he or she really wants in their life (which shows up in their values, hopes, and ideals). The source of the depression may be a specific life event or a pervasive sense of being "not good enough" (usually established in childhood). I often use hypnosis to correct mistaken beliefs behind the sense of unworthiness or to let the sadness go, which has proven to be very effective for powerful healing.

When the world become so dark and difficult with little hope, this is the time to reach out for care. Sometimes, life does not get this dark, but it is just hard to go on from day to day and have the energy or motivation to get up and live life. Everyone's sense of depression is different and can have different sources depending upon who you are. While working with you in a therpeutic relationship, we can begin to piece together the areas of your life contributing to your depression. Psychological treatment can help you understand the depression and learn other ways to care for yourself which our life giving verses life draining. Depression is a lonely illness. Seek help!

The most effective treatment of depression is through a combination of talk therapy and medication. Some clients choose to try talk therapy before taking an anti-depressant. The approach that I use is dependent upon the client. Some effective therapeutic approaches are cognitive behavioral therapy, eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and narrative therapy to name a few. Know that if you suffer from depression there is help for you and hope for your situation.

“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.

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.

I recently read a book with a title that I think describes depression well. It was called "Looking up from the stubborn darkness". For many people this is exactly how they feel.

My method of treating depression is to assess the causes of the depression, mobilize your strengths, and support you in making the needed behavioral, cognitive and emotional changes. Depression can result from biological and/or psychosocial factors. Effective treatment will explore the underlying causes as well as developing more effective coping skills. These skills include using social support, changing self-talk, resolving underlying issues, healthy emotional expression, setting and achieving goals, and increasing assertive behavior. My clinical approach to treatment is to be actively engaged, supportive, direct and practical.

Depression is a boulder sized burden a person is forced to carry wherever he or she goes. It is not so unlike the mythological person, Sisyphus, who is forever cursed to push a boulder up hill. In working with clients, I believe it is important to address the nature of the boulder size burdens that insist on being one’s constant companion. In understanding their nature, it becomes possible to set the boulder aside allowing for a clearer vision of what lies ahead and a lighter step, with more energy to move on. However, depression, unlike a boulder, is not content to be set aside. It wants to be carried. Therefore, it takes dedication and creative direction to outwit its needy grasp.
