There is still a lot of stigma around mental health and depression. Thoughts such as "I don't want to be a burden" and "I don't know who to talk to" are common. Depression is just a part of who you are - it is not all of you. When you are ready, I will help you develop the necessary skills so that over time, depressive symptoms will become fewer and have a lesser hold on your life.

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. You can self-register and self-schedule at mnonlinecounseling.com.

I always think of depression and anxiety as close relations. Although they feel very different in the body, they often arise for the same reason; to protect us. For me, the key to working with depression is to use curiosity and compassion to figure out why it has such a hold, and to understand what purpose it serves. I believe that we develop depression because it was adaptive at some point in our lives, but then it stops working for us. If we understand the message/purpose/role this part plays within us, without judgement or shame, it's a lot easier to release depression's hold on us.

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.

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 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.

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.
