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.

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.

Depression is sually born out of a life event such as a major illness, a death in the family, childhood abuse or trauma a loss of a job or a divorce. therapy can help understand where these events affected how a person thinks about themself which may be perpetuating the depression.

Sometimes in the midst of depression it is hard to see how negative thinking is effecting our mood. Is the glass always half empty or half full? Does the depression go back to unresolved childhood issues? I will work with clients to see how they can make some changes in their mood with cognitive therapy and EMDR. Sometimes old unfinished pain from our past is keeping us stuck in the present.

Depression is a part of the lives of people who experience it, but it does not need to define their life. People who I work with discover new and creative ways to approach their own unique experience of depression so that it has less influence over the parts of themselves and their lives that matter most to them. I recognize the how overwhelming depression can be, while also seeing the power an individual has over it's impact on their life.

You'll understand the events and behaviors in your life that contribute to feeling depressed and learn how to experience a range of emotions.

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?

We will work together to identify your particular depressive symptoms, how they affect you, and how to reduce their impact in your life. 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. Clients often report that understanding the source or contributing factors of depression helps them to feel better and more in control. It also helps us create a treatment plan based on your unique situation rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.

While depression is not always easy to understand or explain, we believe that working from a solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral perspective allows you to gain insight and develop skills which can create new hope and purpose for the future and a confidence that you have the capability of managing your mood and response, rather than feeling that your mood and emotions are managing you – helping you achieve a greater sense of personal contentment and confidence.
