My approach with depressed persons depends on cause/source of depression and type; clinical vs situational depression. In cases of clinical depression, I work closely with the person's physician to ensure safety and coordination of goals, monitoring of symptoms, and ensuring adequate support systems. I help clients formulate methods to express their pain, identify source, process events impacting their life, identify personal resources, and determine their choices for the future. I focus their attention on personal identity strengths and vulnerabilities and help them navigate a pathway to future possibilities. I often use healing prayer and imagery to help them heal their pain.

Depression is common in our culture. The two basic approaches I use are to identify the source and go back with the client to help heal the wounds that may have fostered the depression and, if warranted, to seek medication to lessen the symptoms. Body work can be very helpful in treating depress--identifying where it may be located and finding ways to release the cellular memory.

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.

Depression isn't a choice, but sufferers' often end up blaming themselves for how they feel. Self-blame, along with the felt weight of emotional and physiological pain, can often lead to isolation, addiction and illness. I support clients in understanding how depression is a disease, not a choice; in noticing and shifting negative thinking; in increasing compassionate, mindful self-care; in devising and implementing small, manageable goals that boost self-esteem and hopefulness; and in processing any deeper issues, such as trauma or loss.
