Depression is a painful and isolating experience. For some, having a therapist to connect to regularly can help anchor them in this distress. I will work with you to explore what your depression is like and to understand it better, which can often help shift things in small ways to make depression feel less difficult. We will focus on your present life and work on building skills to help you tolerate your current state as well as exploring reasons you may be experiencing depression and envisioning changes you'd like to have in the future.

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.

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.

Depression is one of the most common problems that humans deal with. We look at depression as taking to common forms. There is clinical depression which is more brain based, with a strong genetic component. There is also situational depression, which even though it involves brain chemistry, is more based on patterns of thought. Research has shown that a combination of therapy and medication is commonly an effective approach. Medication alone has shown to not be as effective. The human connection that comes through therapy is key.

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.

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.

Does life feel overwhelming and hopeless? I'll help you connect with your pain without getting lost in it, understand where it comes from, and interrupt the cycle of negative and despairing thoughts that characterize depression. When you can make sense of your suffering and share it in a supportive environment, it shifts from feeling impossible to live with to being a manageable part of life. You'll understand the events and behaviors in your life that contribute to feeling depressed and learn how to experience a range of emotions. Whether you're on antidepressants or feel strongly about not using them, therapy is an effective way to break depression's state of lethargy and powerlessness.

Life can be difficult. When we feel alone, lonely, rejected, unfulfilled, abused, or powerless, we can become depressed. I believe that if we try to resist depression and "just think positive," we can be left feeling worse about ourselves or our situations. However, if we "lean in" and listen, we can discover unmet emotional needs and a renewed sense of meaning. I believe that depression serves a purpose, it clues us in that we need to slow down and be more attentive to our needs. In a safe, supportive environment, my goal is to help you listen to and embrace the part of yourself that is in pain and, together, we'll make sense of the sadness and rediscover joy and happiness.

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.

Depression is a common and often very painful condition that for some is quite debilitating and for others may be experienced as a low-grade, persistent feeling of negative mood. I think of depression as a collection of symptoms that vary from one person to the next, which must be explored and understood on an individual basis. Symptoms inform us that something is wrong. I find that my patients benefit most and heal more completely when we come to understand the problems underlying the symptoms and work them through, as opposed to simply attempting to relieve the symptoms without awareness of their deeper meaning.

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.

With commitment to therapy and working on changing the underlying negative patterns of beliefs causing depression, there is every possibility of change.

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 therapeutic relationship, we can begin to piece together the areas of your life contributing to your depression. In my practice I offer treatment for your depression and learn other ways to care for yourself which are life giving verses life draining. Depression is a lonely illness. I hope you chose to seek help!

I recently read a book with a title that I think describes depression well. It was called "Looking up from the stubborn darkness". For many people this is exactly how they feel. If you want to see the light of life again, if you want to feel hope again, and if you want to experience freedom from your depressive thoughts than give me a call and we can begin that journey together. It will require something from you, but it will be worth the work when you exit the valley and feel freedom again!

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.
