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.

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.

When the world become so dark and difficult with little hope, this is the time to reach out for care. Sometimes, life does not get this dark, but it is just hard to go on from day to day and have the energy or motivation to get up and live life. Everyone's sense of depression is different and can have different sources depending upon who you are. While working with you in a therpeutic relationship, we can begin to piece together the areas of your life contributing to your depression. Psychological treatment can help you understand the depression and learn other ways to care for yourself which our life giving verses life draining. Depression is a lonely illness. Seek help!

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.

“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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
