Depression is often misunderstood. Family and friends give well-meaning advice such as "you need to get out more." It would be nice if that's all it took! While medication is sometimes needed, it takes several weeks for you to feel the full effects. A therapist who specializes in working with depression can often offer some quick benefits. Low self esteem and/or a history of abuse or trauma is often at the very root of depression. I am certified in a particular therapy that relieves that type of hurt. Call me for an appointment, and together we can work to get you some fast relief from depression.

Depression is quite common and is often associated with an experience of emotional loss after which normal grief is not fully experienced for some reason. Suppressing, ignoring or dismissing feelings of loss can lead to depressive symptoms. As a Telemental health therapist, I assist clients experiencing dysthymia or mild persistent depression, seasonal affective depression, postpartum depression and situational depression or difficulty in adjusting to a stressful, traumatic life event such as a miscarriage, job loss or divorce. If you are experiencing a psychotic depression or a major depressive episode, I believe you are better served by seeing a local therapist for in-person support and your safety.
