We welcome adult clients into our practice at any time. We also specialize in teens. Many parents call us to find effective alternatives to more intensive therapy such as Intensive Outpatient (IOP) or Partial Care Programs (PCP). In our setting, we can provide individual and family therapy 1-2 times per week in addition to providing teen group therapy. This may be the just the right amount of therapy for your teen. We will then recommend when the time is right to reduce the number of sessions to once per week.

I help my clients learn how to let go of their depression and replace it with acceptance and joy. Depression often occurs when we take situations and others' behavior personally. When we think they mean something about our self-worth. You can learn how to define your own self-worth and not allow anything outside yourself to determine your mood. I can help you learn how to take better care of yourself by learning to heal the deeper feelings underneath your depression like sadness, helplessness and loneliness.

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.

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.

Each individual experiences sadness, depression in a unique way. To that end, I have lived and worked in the USA, Europe and Mexico and have treated a wide variety of culturally, ethnically, racially, religiously and linguistically diverse populations, as well as in age and symptom particularities. I implement any one of a number of psychotherapeutic approaches to free an individual from negative thoughts and feelings allowing for symptom remission and restoration of full function, to sustain those gains and prevent any new episode. I utilize elements of Interpersonal Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Supportive Therapy or other to achieve symptom remission, psychosocial restoration

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 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.

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.”

Most depressed clients feel trapped by the circumstances that life has presented them. By introducing some elegantly simple tools, you will discover that there are openings (physically and energetically) that can dissolve frustrating anxiety/depression. Importantly, you become aware of perceptions and experiences not previously available to you. The tools/exercises that we use in session experientially shift us out of our everyday minds - This allows us access to another intelligence within a naturopathic pathway supported by our bodies, our hearts and nature.
