Often depression sets in when we are not accustomed to the emotional upheaval of change, loss, grief and just every day life events. As humans, we can go from feeling devastated in a second that hits us out of no-where, with mood swings that are difficult for our family and friends to understand. One minute we are just fine, and the next...we are an emotional wreck. I provide a safe and confidential environment to explore various feelings of depression and help you sort things out. My goal is to help you become the best version of yourself!

Depression is usually created by Negative Cognitions learned early in life that form a client's view of themselves, such as "I am unlovable" or "not good enough." Learning can be from verbal scripts or non-verbal sources, such as physical or sexual abuse, bullying, or anger or other dysfunctions in the family of origin. Steve helps clients eliminate depression with the use of Cognitive-Behavioral tools, and to keep it from happening in the future by processing the original sources of negative beliefs through the use of EMDR. Steve will also help clients enlarge their support system and improve interpersonal intimacy to further reduce Depression and improve Self-Esteem.

Depression is more than just sadness. It is often accompanied by a sense of hopelessness, various physical complaints, disruptions in patterns of sleep, changes in appetite, a loss of enjoyment in life, and feelings of worthlessness. If you believe you are experiencing depression, it is important to be evaluated and seek treatment. The way I work with depression is highly individualized but our initial work is focused on providing relief from symptoms and restoring a sense of hope for the future. In beginning your work with depression, it’s important to understand that it will get better, even when it seems all hope is lost.

With depression I want to address the symptoms directly and find out what we can do about the loss of energy, difficulty sleeping, depressed mood, and other symptoms that come with depression. Making a plan is important in keeping depression from getting in the way of your work, lifestyle, and relationships. I also want to explore what some of the root causes of the depression might be so that deeper healing can occur.

When working with individuals struggling with depression, I try to help support individuals through the current challenges in their life that may be contributing to their depression. Sometimes, individuals just need unbiased understanding and support. Sometimes, individuals want to make changes. Together, we can work toward making changes within themselves or their environment to help improve their mood and quality of life.

Depression hurts, but it doesn't have to hurt forever. Depression can be anything from a chemical imbalance to natural grief to a persistent lack of purpose. In looking at the many parts of your entire life, we can begin to understand what causes you to get stuck in the same old thoughts and habits and start to form new thoughts and habits that create a new way to live. You don't have to be a passive bystander in your own life. You can change.
