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.

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 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.

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.

Depression can leave us immobilized, unable to do the things in life that we normally do without much effort. At the heart of it is the pain of disconnection that leaves a person feeling alone and isolated. I'll help you clarify the messages you're telling yourself that are keeping you stuck, and work through the related emotions, so that you come to a place of motivation to take the next step that will lead to a fulfilling life.

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.

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.
