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.

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.

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.

Struggling to get out of bed in the morning, make it to work, take care of your partner or children, often leads to a horrific spiral of guilt, shame, and feeling even worse. Depression is a terrible beast and it feeds off the shitty things we tell ourselves. Part of working through your depression is having a safe space to come and share about your experience without additional judgment or shame. You do not have to keep suffering alone!

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?

Depression can be one of the most powerful and resistant mood issues as far as impact to one's life. A common symptom is low motivation meaning you have to put extreme effort into doing things, and this includes seeking help. To me, depression has a chicken-or-egg origin. Do lifestyle and thoughts change the chemical balance in the brain or does a chemical imbalance in the brain contribute to a depressed lifestyle and thought pattern. This circular dilemma is one of the things that makes depression so tough. I will work with you to find solutions towards recovery from depression. I do in-office and online counseling. You can self-register and self-schedule at mnonlinecounseling.com.

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.

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.

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.

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.
