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.

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.

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.

Are you feeling hopeless? Do you feel numb, like you are never happy or sad? Do you keep all of your feelings inside? Do you sometimes wish you would not wake up or imagine how to end your life? Have you had so much emotional or physical pain these past few months or years that you feel stuck? You may be struggling with depression. There is hope. Together, we will explore what may be causing your depression. It could be related to thought patterns you learned growing up, grief, a chemical imbalance in the brain, poor diet or lack of exercise. I specialize in providing individual, couple or family counseling to address depression in adolescents, adults, veterans, and first responders.

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.

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.
