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.

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.

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 life challenge that is shared by many of us and treated in a variety of ways. Letting go of self blame and regret may be your need. Examining past history and increasing or altering perspective about how this affects your self worth may bring relief. Addressing present thought patterns and how they relate to mood and behavior is practical and beneficial. But, receiving consistent support by a trained, compassionate and dedicated professional who will remain by your side through attempts to change may be the most important and positive step toward relieving depression and that is what I bring to our sessions.

I provide a safe, supportive environment, where your needs and goals are my sole focus.

Depression is one of the most common conditions that bring people into therapy. I approach depression from various directions. I look at some of the characteristic distortions in the way depressed people think, for example, challenging the sense that their depression is unchanging when in fact they have periods of feeling okay. I work to activate people. People who are depressed are often unmotivated and isolate themselves, but being active and spending time with people tends to alleviate depression. I help people to look at their history, and the patterns in their family that have impacted on their being depressed. Put together, these approaches allow people to find ways to feel better.

The number one priority I have when working with clients who are depressed is to help them see that they can learn how to cope with and manage paralyzing thoughts and feelings that hold them back in life. My clients and I work together to develop and implement several strategies to replace the negative, irrational and unrealistic thoughts they have with positive, rational and realistic ones. I also work with clients on exploring and understanding the underlying issues that may be contributing to their current feelings and problems. Through this process, clients stop repeating self defeating and self sabotaging behaviors to pursue and achieve their life goals.

It's my aim to decrease depressive suffering: PSYCHOTHERAPY is the first-line intervention for intransigent dark mood states and moderate levels of depression. I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to redirect a depressed person's negative beliefs toward positive thoughts and attainable goals. CBT teaches and helps you maintain comfortable behaviors and interactions that restore normal moods and awaken your enthusiasm for life. I add PSYCHOANALYTIC APPROACHES since these techniques help depressed individuals heal from critical problems arising from childhood traumas. Particularly those that are dysregulating current relationships and that complicate overall life and love adjustments.

Depression, intense sadness, mood that is up and then down, happy and sad. Depression strikes young and old, teens and adults. At times its a certain event or situation that creates depression. Perhaps a loss that is being grieved; divorce, separation, toxic relationships, low self-esteem/confidence, feelings of being "stuck," loss of feeling happy doing the things you used to enjoy, sleep disturbance, appetite/eating, and more. I offer a safe, compassionate environment for you to talk about what is on your mind. I offer solution-focused, thought reframing techniques that will put you on the road to recovery and living the life you want.

I have a multifacted approach to depression. If need be, I help you understand why you are depressed and how to change. I offer hypnosis and EMDR and meditation which all can transform the brain so that centers for depression become smaller and areas of well-being increase. I use behavioral approaches, encouraging physical activity, contact with nature, re-thinking negative thought processes. If you wish, I can help you connect with a spiritual side of yourself to put depression in perspective. And, if needed, I will recommend medication.
