Depression is one of the most common conditions that bring people into therapy. I approach depression from various directions. I look at some of the characteristic distortions in the way depressed people think, for example, challenging the sense that their depression is unchanging when in fact they have periods of feeling okay. I work to activate people. People who are depressed are often unmotivated and isolate themselves, but being active and spending time with people tends to alleviate depression. I help people to look at their history, and the patterns in their family that have impacted on their being depressed. Put together, these approaches allow people to find ways to feel better.

It can be hard to express what is happening when dealing with depression, even when you want to let something out. Creative arts therapy will help with that through the use of approaches that don't rely solely on words. No prior experience is necessary and the work you do in session doesn't have to be big or complicated to help. Even just a single mark on the paper with an oil pastel can be enough. The therapist will move at a pace comfortable for each individual client and will adapt over time to meet the needs of each person.

Depression is a big umbrella word today to describe a large tree of disorders that fall under the general rubric of a low mood. For some people depression is something that follows them around and never disappears completely. For others depression is accompanied by the change in weather and is particularly disabling in the winter months when there is less sun. Working in talk therapy together with a psychiatric consultation and possible medication is the gold standard to treat depression. I work together with psychiatrists when needed to alleviate my patients depression and allow for the talk therapy to be more effective.

In my biography on Theravive, I describe how I utilize an integrated combination of cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic modalities. That is, I tailor each treatment plan to the needs of the individual. Some patients wish to make connections between past experiences and current depression, and in this case it is appropriate to revisit the past to recognize its psychodynamic influence on current maladaptive behaviors. Other patients take a purely cognitive behavioral position on their experienced depression, wanting to be grounded in the present and move forward with problem-solving techniques and strategies. I also work with two psychiatrists who may prescribe medication where needed.

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.

When depressed we lack the energy and motivation to care for ourselves as if we are undeserving or incapable of loving ourselves. Often, depression signifies that we feel hopeless and helpless to be happy with ourselves and/or create a happier life for ourselves. The answer lay with mourning the loss of what we mistakenly believed was indispensable to looking ahead with hopeful optimism. Our relationship will provide the support to help you let go of these self limiting beliefs, while encouraging you and guiding you to develop your inner resources, and take advantage of resources available to you.

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.

Depression is generally considered a reaction to physical or psychological stress, and any number of stressors can lead to depressive symptoms. These can include personality, environmental, or biomedical factors, i.e. chemical imbalances in the brain, trauma, and/or situational factors. Sometimes illness or certain drugs (including alcohol, prescribed medications, etc.) as well as improper diet and nutrition contribute to depression. Treatment includes identifying and understanding the underpinnings and circumstances of your depression (insight), learning helpful coping skills, and getting extra support so you can feel better and recover.
