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.

“If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather.” –Stephen Fry All of us feel down from time to time or find ourselves reeling after a painful situation. We generally rely on our native resilience to get us through temporary pain. But when despair settles in, when we cannot readily spot the whys for feeling sadness or profound emptiness, then counseling can help. Charlie helps you develop skills using methods from cognitive behavioral therapy, from mindfulness, and from behavioral activation that will give you tools to manage depression.
