Depression can leave you feeling hopeless. It's exhausting some days to even muster the energy to get out of bed and face yet another day. In our work together we can identify the reasons for your depression and find ways in which to cope with it. Through continued work I can help you gain control of your life and feel empowered to manage your depression. I draw on personal experience of loving someone with depression. You will benefit from my knowledge and understanding of depression but mostly from the care and compassion you will experience through our work together. You deserve to feel supported and understood while you work towards healing.

With an extensive medical background, I am aware of medical interventions and how you may not have gotten what you need from pharmaceuticals. More importantly, I understand that the context of your life is the most profound contribution to depression. Of course, genetics and dysfunctional neurological systems play a role. Together, we will discover which has the biggest influence and how to manage each.

When working with clients who suffer from depression I walk side by side with them during their struggles and let them know that they are not alone in it. I provide compassion and understanding while giving my clients tools they can use to cope and work past their depression. When people are depressed they often times feel like they are completely isolated. I work to help clients expand their support system in their lives outside of therapy to help promote healthy connects with people after my clients time in therapy has been completed.
