Depression can make you feel hopeless, alone and empty. It is, however, treatable. During psychotherapy sessions, I work with individuals and couples to give them the tools they need to cope and eventually thrive. The relationship with the therapist is integral to the healing process. I work with each person to help him/her regain confidence and a sense of wellbeing.

Depression is often the illness hiding in plain sight. It’s difficult to get help as depression has the ability to drain you of your will and sense of agency. I work with people suffering with moderate to severe depression. My approach is to find out what is happening now in your life that is causing you distress, your response to it, and also recognize any repetitions of events, relationships or behaviors which may be pulling you down. I work both short and long term. Symptom relief is the immediate goal, whereas a longer-term goal may be to identify any underlying issues triggering the depression.

Something in your past or in your current life has thrown you off kilter. If you are experiencing symptoms of depression which range from having a tough time getting out of bed in the morning to extreme weight loss or gain, and too many other symptoms to mention here, then it is time to take the first step and take care of yourself. Addressing these feelings in therapy will help reduce them and together we can uncover some of the issues and help you to get to a more positive place in your life.

Depression is a big umbrella word today to describe a large tree of disorders that fall under the general rubric of a low mood. For some people depression is something that follows them around and never disappears completely. For others depression is accompanied by the change in weather and is particularly disabling in the winter months when there is less sun. Working in talk therapy together with a psychiatric consultation and possible medication is the gold standard to treat depression. I work together with psychiatrists when needed to alleviate my patients depression and allow for the talk therapy to be more effective.

In any given year, seven percent of Americans will be diagnosed with depression -- feeling sad for weeks or months on end, often with a sense of hopelessness and taking little or no pleasure in life. I will work with you both interpersonally and cognitively. We will look at the psychosocial roots of your depression in your family of origin and also faulty thinking you are harboring that leads to negative beliefs about yourself. In this way, you become empowered to make more positive and adaptive choices for yourself and have a more positive outlook on yourself and your possibilities. If you need medication, I will refer you to a psychiatrist and we will work collaboratively to help you.

Depression can create feelings of sadness, fatigue, restlessness, and a lack of enjoyment in things that you just can't move beyond. It can get in the way of basic tasks (eating, sleeping, getting out of bed), or sometimes you can get to the things you need to, but just don't "feel like yourself". Depression is not a sign of weakness, and seeking help is a sign of strength. The worthlessness, helplessness, hopelessness, and sometimes thoughts of ending your life, can all be helped with treatment. We can work together on understanding your depression, making small changes, and finding ways to help you move forward in your life. Take the next step and schedule a consultation to get started

Depression is very difficult to address on ones own. Often clients don't know its depression as their thoughts and feelings almost begin to feel normal. They forget about how life once was and need a help in climbing out of the dark hole that they feel there in. I will use few different approaches including referrals for medication when a client feels they are ready or request it.

The psychological component of depression usually includes an expreience of "hitting up against a brick wall" or "feeling deeply stuck in the mud." Not being able to get going, or having become totally numb to events or relationships are also common. Your therapist seeks to help you get in touch with your real self and reconnect with what matters. The work might be discussing whether and how to rebuild or strengthen your relationships. Or, the work might be focused on reconfiguring your goals and establishing better patterns in your life to help unstick yourself, releasing attachments to unhealthy addictions and relinquishing ties to unrealistic aspirations.
