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.

A fog. Quicksand. Moving through mud. Whatever phrase you use to describe it, depression can make you feel as if you're lost, aimless, and stuck like you've never been stuck before. I help my clients identify the roots of their depression and guide them on how to take the first steps out of the hopelessness and helplessness they've been feeling. We will work together to find a better path for you and and start moving toward a brighter future.

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.

We all feel sad or discouraged at times. However, sometimes these feelings persist for months, or are so intense that it is a daily struggle to wake up, shower, and actively participate in life. You may feel hopeless, that there is no meaning to life, and cut off contact from your loved ones. There is no single 'cause' of depression and others may become frustrated your failed attempts at getting better. Our work together can identify the many factors contributing to low mood, change unhelpful patterns of thinking or behaving that contribute to depression, increase self esteem and empowerment, and identify a balance between your self-care and various life commitments.

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!

I work with many clients that have reported depression as one of the reasons they used. Depression can also be something that people in early recovery may experience as the body and the brain adjust to not having the person’s chemical of choice and slowly returns back to the normal state of homeostasis. I work with clients on developing a variety of coping skills such as Mindfulness Techniques, and various skills from Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapies. These techniques can reduce symptoms of depression for many clients in a short period of time. For other clients further work may be necessary to increase self-esteem and feelings of worthiness.
