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.

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.

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.

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.
