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.

In adulthood, our closest relationship is often with our spouse, partner, or significant other. When chronic conflict invades this relationship, it can become difficulty to find joy and contentment in life. Meredith works with couples in which one or both partners are experiencing depression. She believes that as the relationship heals and partners learn strategies for respecting and valuing one another's needs and desires, symptoms of depression will be alleviated.

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.

I use a variety of approaches to help clients overcome depression. I work towards helping clients of all ages identify and express feelings, and then employ healthy coping skills to make life feel less overwhelming. By definition, depression is a feeling of hopelessness and helplessness. I aim to help clients feel more empowered, and take concrete steps to reach goals that improve self-esteem and promote well-being. I work with all ages, and have a great deal of experience helping children and adolescents as well as other mothers. My style is warm and accepting!

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.

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.

Everyone experiences depression from time to time. I consider it to be one of many normal human emotions. But when we can't shake the feeling and it begins to take over making it difficult to enjoy even the basic pleasures of life there's a problem that needs to be addressed. In treating depression I like to take a holistic approach looking at a number of factors including one's experiences growing up, current life stressors , physical health and genetic predispositions among others. In understanding one's life within this larger context I can help my client to avoid stepping into the same emotional traps that have tended to perpetuate depression.

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 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 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.

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.
