Depression is a common and often very painful condition that for some is quite debilitating and for others may be experienced as a low-grade, persistent feeling of negative mood. I think of depression as a collection of symptoms that vary from one person to the next, which must be explored and understood on an individual basis. Symptoms inform us that something is wrong. I find that my patients benefit most and heal more completely when we come to understand the problems underlying the symptoms and work them through, as opposed to simply attempting to relieve the symptoms without awareness of their deeper meaning.

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.

Are you feeling hopeless? Do you feel numb, like you are never happy or sad? Do you keep all of your feelings inside? Do you sometimes wish you would not wake up or imagine how to end your life? Have you had so much emotional or physical pain these past few months or years that you feel stuck? You may be struggling with depression. There is hope. 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 specialize in providing individual, couple or family counseling to address depression in adolescents, adults, veterans, and first responders.

“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 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!

I always think of depression and anxiety as close relations. Although they feel very different in the body, they often arise for the same reason; to protect us. For me, the key to working with depression is to use curiosity and compassion to figure out why it has such a hold, and to understand what purpose it serves. I believe that we develop depression because it was adaptive at some point in our lives, but then it stops working for us. If we understand the message/purpose/role this part plays within us, without judgement or shame, it's a lot easier to release depression's hold on us.

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.

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 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.

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.

Depression can manifest in many forms; one of those forms may be very apparent due to external symptoms such as fatigue, changes in hygiene, withdrawal, isolating, inability to experience joy, crying, etc. Another form of depression that can be just as debilitating is high-functioning depression where symptoms may not appear much around others or in general. A person will just continue pushing through although they may experience times of deep sadness, irritability, lack of joy, negative thinking patterns and hopelessness that is not apparent to the naked eye. ALL types of depressive symptoms can be supported and improved through therapy.

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.

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.
