I work with many people with depression whether as individuals, or in the context of couples therapy. I help people to become aware of their thoughts, feelings, and the experience they have in their bodies around their depression. I work cognitively and behaviorally to help them understand distorted thinking. I also work to "externalize" the feeling of depression, and help people understand that, "you are not your thoughts." Depression may be visiting you, but you are not depression. Mindfulness is a tool I use with depression to help people understand what is happening to them in the moment, and to begin to open to emotions that may be blocked.

Registered Psychotherapist

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.

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.

If you have a pulse and a heart, you have been sad. Using the science of happiness rather than standard interventions for depression we focus on increasing positive emotion, engagement, and meaning rather than directly targeting depressive symptoms. In using these interventions with clients I have noted the effects of these interventions in a variety of settings. In informal and clinical settings these interventions have commonly been reported to me and referred to as “life-changing.”

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.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapist

Have you ever had a day where you woke up and noticed that you just felt ‘off’ or down? Everyone experiences times in their life where they may feel more down. This is completely normal and expected. It can be caused from circumstances (e.g. stress at work, unemployment, death). Depression is different than just feeling down. Depression can look different on each individual person but our goal is to help you define what life would look like if you weren't feeling depressed and set goals to get you there. We work on changing the way we see and perceive the world and change our behaviors, to ultimately change how we feel.
