If you are suffering from depression, you are not alone. Depression is one of the most common reasons people seek help. There are a number of reasons one may feel depressed. Some causes of depression are biological imbalances, genetics, age, trauma/grief, stress, health issues, or medication/substance side effects. Often depression is also mixed with anxiety. It is very important to get a thorough assessment which is the first step of treatment- to understand the etiology, degree of severity and to help guage treatment.Treatment usually involves talk therapy and sometimes medication. As an RN and therapist, I have experience with both treatment of depression and understanding of mediciatons.

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. If you want to see the light of life again, if you want to feel hope again, and if you want to experience freedom from your depressive thoughts than give me a call and we can begin that journey together. It will require something from you, but it will be worth the work when you exit the valley and feel freedom again!

Life can be difficult. When we feel alone, lonely, rejected, unfulfilled, abused, or powerless, we can become depressed. I believe that if we try to resist depression and "just think positive," we can be left feeling worse about ourselves or our situations. However, if we "lean in" and listen, we can discover unmet emotional needs and a renewed sense of meaning. I believe that depression serves a purpose, it clues us in that we need to slow down and be more attentive to our needs. In a safe, supportive environment, my goal is to help you listen to and embrace the part of yourself that is in pain and, together, we'll make sense of the sadness and rediscover joy and happiness.

Together, we will explore what may be causing your depression. It could be related to thought patterns you learned growing up, grief, a chemical imbalance in the brain, poor diet or lack of exercise.

I look at therapy as building a proverbial toolbox. The tools that fill this toolbox are coping skills. Some things we try will work for you while other coping skills won't. We work together to figure out what will work best for you. You will find that psychotherapy with me addresses your primary concern, not mine! I work with you to identify goals and we work to achieve those goals. With depression - we work to find or create enjoyment in everyday life. We also work to find creative outlets for the depression symptoms.

Some people are determined to be miserable, or as if they deserve to feel as bad as they do. Other people don't exactly know why they feel as bad as they do. Where ever you fall on the spectrum of depression, I can help you break the cycle keeping you there. Otherwise, depression will go on feeding itself. It becomes a lens through which you see the world, constantly searching for evidence as to why you are broken, not good enough, helpless, etc. We grow complacent with the belief that this is as good as it gets. Sure, we can't ever make depression go away entirely. Even so, if you can have more good days than bad, why not upgrade from complacency to comfort?

“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.
