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

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.

Seeking therapy for depression is not an easy decision. It's hard to find the line between normal feelings of unhappiness and clinical depression. 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.

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.

If depression is keeping you from feeling that you're in the swing of things, and limiting your life potential and your relationships, psychotherapy can make the difference. I balance treatment of the "here and now "with an understanding of the deeper sources of your condition, based on your history and present circumstances of your life. I believe that when we face it together, on a consistent basis, we can help to alleviate some of your most severe manifestations, and enable you to begin to see positive results in your everyday experience.

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.

Depression is painful, it can disrupt many areas of your life-- from personal relationships, work, organization and cleanliness, your sleep, appetite, and sex life. It can even make someone not want to go on. It is one of the most common problems I treat. Despite how common and painful it can be, there is good news. There are a number of highly effective treatments for depression supported by science. I utilize Cognitive Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Behavioral Activation, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and when appropriate some skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I also incorporate physical exercise and meditation when appropriate.

There is hope if you are unable to enjoy the things that used to give you pleasure or if you have a sense of sadnesss or hopelessness that just won't go away. We all feel sad from time to time, but depression is when this goes on over time and can affect all areas of your life and even lead to you feeling like giving up on life. Together, we can look at what is going on and explore ways (through discussion, actions and possibly involving a physician) to help you back to where you would want to be - where you can experience a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher can help you on that journey.

There is hope if you are experiencing intense feelings of hopelessness and despair. However, first you need to learn about the new advances in neuroscience that emphasize the role of the brain in how you feel. Let me help you to develop insight into what triggers unhealthy, self-critical thoughts and self-defeating patterns of behavior.

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.

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.
