I believe that depression is nature’s way of shutting us down when there is some element in our life or our past that overwhelms and burdens us. It is often something experienced that our usual ways of coping cannot remedy. A client experiencing depression is often ‘turning off’, ‘shutting down’ and going inward in response to something in their life or in their relationships that is just too much to bear. I help depressed clients discover what it is in their life that is overwhelming them and help them find the strength and power to directly face the matter that is causing the turn inward and the shutting down.

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.

Depression is anger turned inward or against yourself. As anger builds within, an individual has three choices: To channel the anger energy assertively by expressing the feelings attached to the situations causing one to feel depressed; to express the anger through outbursts that can be very destructive to the self and others; to internalize the anger and become more depressed and less functional with time. My job is to enable you to learn how to identify and express feelings that are causing you to feel depressed. The next step is to change behaviors associated with your feelings freeing you from depressive thoughts and feelings.

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 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.
