Depression is an intense sadness. Depression can take place as a normal reaction to certain life events. It can impact our thoughts, behavior, physical health, emotions, and view of the world. Therapy can include an examination of various areas of life (thoughts, conflicts, personal relationships) along with healthy vs. unhealthy habits to determine the best path to move you forward and enjoy life again.

Depression can be distressful and often times misunderstood or downplayed by others. Understanding that depression is a valid experience can help in taking the first steps to getting help. While medications are certainly valuable in some cases, it's still very important to address the underlying issues that may be also contributing to the depression. With our busy lifestyles, depression is on the rise. It's roughly ten times higher today than it was just two generations ago. Together we will assess your present and past experiences and formulate a plan to help you better understand what you are experiencing, what you can do about it and how to feel better.

Depression is a many faceted life challenge. Mary has experience in helping many people rise up from their depression issues. Many approaches working together are needed to find the right solution for depression. The whole body/whole mind approach appears to work well. We must look at every single aspect of what brought the depressive state on in the first place. Then, we try and correct the root of the problem while nurturing the body and the mind back to a state of well-being.

Depression can feel so heavy and disorienting. In fact, I'm not even a big fan of the word because it stirs in us the thought that we're alone and almost unable to be helped. But don't we all struggle with varying degrees of sadness? You may be experiencing what you feel like is all you can handle. Take heart, I believe we can be comforted and given hope in these hard places. I would love to help you pull out of it and be reoriented to the love and hope that we can find in a relationship with God.

Most people who are seeking therapy for depression have been referred by their doctor or they are feeling like it is the last resort. They have been trying to do it all on their own and that is not working. Depression can be a short-term, situational issue or it can be something that you struggle with for life. The important thing is finding someone who understands what you are going through and how to help you come out on the other side. You don't have to do this all on your own. Let me help you discover what is causing your depression and things you can do to feel better and manage it. ** I also work with women who are experiencing post-partum depression.

Depression is felt by everyone at one time or another; however, if you are living under the cloud of depression, counseling will help you to discover new truths. Negative thoughts are often the result of the inablity to see truth. Cognitive Behavior therapy is used in session to help clients to change negative thought patters. Narrative therapy is also used with clients suffering from depression.

Depression is the elephant on your back, that makes life almost impossible to manage, and can be triggered biologically or environmental. If you are taking an antidepressant prescribed by your family practitioner or a psychiatrist, participating in individual therapy is essential for recovery from depressive symptoms. Individual therapy can make it possible to have energy throughout the day, smile and laugh, experience joy, and feel hopeful about your day and future. For those who are in the depths of their depression, suicide becomes a real option. However therapy, and collaboration with a psychiatrist, can help someone see there are other options, and life is important to live.

People often think depression is something wrong with them, often though it has more to do with the wrong way people are relating to you. I work from a warm, empathic standpoint in which I try to enter your shoes and understand your experiences as you do, not as others do. Insight is not the main goal (although that certainly happens), rather formative moments of feeling tuned into, deeply understood and emotionally held are the goal. These offer new emotional experiences that really catalyze psychological growth and healing. Benefits include increased: feelings of vitality and realness, hope, self-esteem, emotion regulation, etc.
