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.

This is especially true since depressions makes it harder to make decisions and leaves you feeling like it's pointless to try new things. If you have been feeling low for more than two weeks and you have noticed other symptoms such changes in your sleeping or eating habits, then contact me to find out if therapy is the right choice. We will start therapy with a comprehensive evaluation to work out whether you have clinical depression and what is causing it. Then we'll use the most effective methods to alleviate your symptoms as soon as possible.

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.

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.

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.

My goal with clients who suffer from depression is to get you up and going again so you can enjoy your life more, and experience greater meaning and satisfaction. Depression can make a person feel exhausted and gloomy, and it tends to make people think things will never get better. But depression is one of the most treatable emotional disorders. I am committed to supporting my depressed patients to become "formerly depressed," and to have some energy again, to have something to look forward to, to feel like life is meaningful again.

What gets you out of bed in the morning? Are you feeling, indecisive, sad, maybe even trapped? Navigating certain periods in your life can be challenging. It can be even more challenging, even overwhelming, if you're going through it alone. Together will explore some of the thoughts, ideas and feelings that may be holding you back. As you gain clarification, I will share with you the coping techniques and tools that are meant to help you stay present and avoid those overwhelming feelings. I provide a safe, supportive environment, where your needs and goals are my sole focus.

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

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.
