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.

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 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.

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.

Does life feel overwhelming and hopeless? I'll help you connect with your pain without getting lost in it, understand where it comes from, and interrupt the cycle of negative and despairing thoughts that characterize depression. When you can make sense of your suffering and share it in a supportive environment, it shifts from feeling impossible to live with to being a manageable part of 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. Whether you're on antidepressants or feel strongly about not using them, therapy is an effective way to break depression's state of lethargy and powerlessness.

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 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.

Depression is one of the most common problems that humans deal with. We look at depression as taking to common forms. There is clinical depression which is more brain based, with a strong genetic component. There is also situational depression, which even though it involves brain chemistry, is more based on patterns of thought. Research has shown that a combination of therapy and medication is commonly an effective approach. Medication alone has shown to not be as effective. The human connection that comes through therapy is key.
