Depression and sadness, though sometimes quite serious, are also a part of our human experience. I have a deep appreciation for our depressions; from light malaise, apathy and low energy, to and deep, dark places. It is important to normalize as much as possible, examine what our beliefs of happiness are, and to understand our emotions and what triggered and triggers them. We are not simply what we feel in the moment, and things do, get better. I am here for you, to examine, advise and suggest, but most importantly to listen and take seriously your pain. To be here for you.

Depression is among the most common mental health issues that plagues society today. I offer various coping skills to assist with depression including assisting clients recognize their negative thought processes. We then work to create substitute neutral thoughts for the negative ones. This type of work then allows the client to begin thinking more positively which then triggers their actions and behaviors to follow and they become more productive and fulfilled.

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.

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 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 will determine the severity of depression and the need for medication. We will figure out if depression is an acute response to a crisis or situation. We will look at the causes, your experience of depression, what are triggers for depression, and ways to cope with it and give you better control of it. If it is a recurrent depression we will find ways for you to cope, and develop good support networks if you don't have them.

Often depression is held in place by thoughts and beliefs that suck the hope out of one's life. Therapy is effective in finding the source of the problem and providing tools for intercepting and changing the problematic thought patterns. Medication may or may not be needed to get the process started. When one gains the ability to envision a rewarding life, it often ends the cycle of depression.

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.

Depression can take many forms, and people often attach a stigma to the word itself. Everyone experiences depression in one form or another, at some point in their life, and it is part of being human. Depression manifests itself in a wide variety of symptoms, including, but not limited to sleeplessness, sleeping too much, fatigue, irritability, lack of motivation, self-isolation, anger, etc. I find the best way to treat depression is by working together to find the underlying causes. Because some of the symptoms of depression, such as despair and hopeless, can get in the way of treatment, it's important to be patient with the process and yourself.

Experiencing depression can be particularly trying on a person. At times, many individuals in your life may not understand what depression is or why you "can't snap out of it". It is crucial to understand that depression is not a choice and with time, effort, and the right treatment approach, you can work toward minimizing depressive symptoms and returning to your own personal level of success and happiness.
