Depression is a feeling that can feel incredibly heavy to hold. Sometimes we experience challenging life events that leave us feeling much sadness, grief, inner pain and lack of joy, which interfere with our daily functioning. That is called depression. With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (challenging unhelpful thoughts) and psychodynamic modalities, I can help you work through that sadness, heaviness and pain, so that you may begin the journey of healing work. This is the first step towards holding the sadness, addressing yourself in a safe space so we can slowly help you process and shift to start feeling lighter and start seeing the sunshine and tasting the small joys in everyday life.

Seeking therapy for depression is not an easy decision. It's hard to find the line between normal feelings of unhappiness and clinical depression. This is especially true since depressions makes it harder to make decisions and leaves you feeling like it's pointless to try new things. If you have been feeling low for more than two weeks and you have noticed other symptoms such changes in your sleeping or eating habits, then contact me to find out if therapy is the right choice. We will start therapy with a comprehensive evaluation to work out whether you have clinical depression and what is causing it. Then we'll use the most effective methods to alleviate your symptoms as soon as possible.

Depression brings such painful feelings of loneliness with it. And, what’s more, depression tells you that you shouldn’t burden the people around you with your troubles, so you hold them in and isolate more. And then depression worsens. Therapy is a place where you can share the darkness you’re experiencing and find comfort, compassion, and understanding. Simply giving voice to your painful feelings in the presence of an experienced, empathic listener begins to unravel and soften depression’s paralyzing grip and disrupt the sadness-isolation cycle.

There is hope if you are unable to enjoy the things that used to give you pleasure or if you have a sense of sadnesss or hopelessness that just won't go away. We all feel sad from time to time, but depression is when this goes on over time and can affect all areas of your life and even lead to you feeling like giving up on life. Together, we can look at what is going on and explore ways (through discussion, actions and possibly involving a physician) to help you back to where you would want to be - where you can experience a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher can help you on that journey.

This is a broad broad category. There are as many things that people call depression, and as many kinds of depressed people, as there are shades of color. The first step is to rule out physical problems – there are several that masquerade as depression – and then to rule out the simple solutions. Any good self-help book or website can give you advice on coping with the inertia that is so problematic in depression. If those are not helping enough, it is time for a careful assessment of your particular brand of what you might be calling depression. It can involve any mixture of anger, resentment, internal pressure, fear, and more. How we handle all that depends on what we find

I will determine the severity of depression and the need for medication. We will figure out if depression is an acute response to a crisis or situation. We will look at the causes, your experience of depression, what are triggers for depression, and ways to cope with it and give you better control of it. If it is a recurrent depression we will find ways for you to cope, and develop good support networks if you don't have them.

Sometimes my clients think they know why they are depressed. Sometimes they are right but, at other times, understanding the true root of depression requires looking at places which do not meet the eye at first. As a therapist, I assist my clients in observing, exploring and gaining an accurate understanding of their depression. New doors and possibilities in life then open and are built upon the foundation of self awareness.

Depression is not just sadness. It is imperative to begin the process of getting out of your depression before you sink into a major episode and are overwhelmed by a negative focus on all that you do or try to do. Just like the TV commercial says, "depression effects everyone, even the family dog". Unfortunately most often family members don't understand your experience, don't know what to do to help you, and don't understand that you can't just "snap out of it". I have been there and I know exactly how you feel and how to help you. I will educate you on depression and will be warm and supportive and help you change your focus to a positive one. Let me help you. I understand.
