The most effective treatment of depression is through a combination of talk therapy and medication. Some clients choose to try talk therapy before taking an anti-depressant. The approach that I use is dependent upon the client. Some effective therapeutic approaches are cognitive behavioral therapy, eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and narrative therapy to name a few. Know that if you suffer from depression there is help for you and hope for your situation.

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?

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.

I help people that struggle with depression find ways to highlight the areas of their life that cause them the most happiness. Often symptoms of depression cause people to lack the motivation to engage in activities that they might find bring them joy as well as decrease their depression symptoms. For example practicing mindfulness and gratitude might heighten the awareness of the individual to recognize the strengths they already possess.

If you have tried every antidepressant available or would like to find another way to overcome depression, I can offer you hope. Sometimes by finding underlying issues we can discover situations (situational depression) which is the root cause and other times there may be a chemical imbalance where a medication might be the route to choose. Whichever method you choose, there are alternatives to discover and which I can offer.

“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.
