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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
