Depression is often a "check engine" light that there are things we love and enjoy doing, are good at, our passions and interests – but we aren't doing them or making time for them. It leaves a hole in our life..often filled by unhealthy, downer stuff. We aren't powerless; we are empowered to identify those needs and wants and joys, and make them happen. Overcoming depression takes feeling I'm behind the steering wheel of my life. Often, we just need a start, a push, a move in a good direction, and get the ball rolling – the depression fades, or becomes far easier to handle.

I have great respect for people who are struggling in their life with an overall lack of satisfaction and motivation. I will help you identify those “triggers” that cause your low mood, and to develop coping skills to help you feel better. My clients report that they are able to sense and identify mood fluctuations as a result of our therapy sessions. Clients that are on medication can expect a team approach to their wellness, as I consult with physicians. If you are reading this right now, you or someone you care about is struggling with the ability to sustain important relationships. If you are currently feeling suicidal, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

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.

Depression is anger turned inward or against yourself. As anger builds within, an individual has three choices: To channel the anger energy assertively by expressing the feelings attached to the situations causing one to feel depressed; to express the anger through outbursts that can be very destructive to the self and others; to internalize the anger and become more depressed and less functional with time. My job is to enable you to learn how to identify and express feelings that are causing you to feel depressed. The next step is to change behaviors associated with your feelings freeing you from depressive thoughts and feelings.

Depression means sadness that may result in crying or may simply steal your happiness. It may be difficult for you to function throughout your day, to think positive thoughts, to make decisions or to enjoy anything. It also involves low energy, sleep and eating disturbances and isolation. I help my clients get through their depression by finding out who they are, seeing how they can regain self-confidence, acting like a mirror to reflect your best qualities and helping regain feelings of connectedness. Simultaneously, each symptom is worked on by determining coping skills to match the problem in strength and intensity.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

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.

Sometimes we find it hard to meet our own expectations or we are disappointed by our loved ones. Life is unfortunately filled with disappointments, either by others or those that are self inflicted. Learning how to not allow those disappointments to define one's self-worth is an important part of therapy. It is easy to avoid our problems, work, social engagements. Depression hampers our motivation and reduces our desire to socialize. When alone with negative thoughts, depression gets fueled. Therapy is hard work but can give you the tools to fight those negative thoughts that weigh you down.

When someone is living with depression it can feel like carrying a heavy weight or living under a dark cloud of isolation. It's often the case that an individual is unaware they are actually depressed. If you're uncertain of the signs and symptoms see this link: http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/mental-health-screen/patient-health Treatment for depression can include a variety of methods. In my practice, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy and Mindfulness treatment models are most effective. These therapeutic strategies can be very powerful - not only in treating the symptoms of depression but they also enhance a greater sense of worth and well-being.

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.”

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.
