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 is often a product of frustration and anger becoming jammed up within the self; as it continues, feelings of hopeless and helplessness can be generated and turn into a story that we can create when we're depressed in which we see ourselves as victims and without power. Depression may also reflect life style issues, notably sleep deprivation and lack of exercise. Medical issues also need to be evaluated with regard to their influence on mood. Depression can be usefully seen in behavioral terms as a "call for action." I will compassionately hold your depressed feelings with you, and explore behaviors to alleviate your frustration, particularly specific to effective self-expression.

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.

The psychological component of depression usually includes an expreience of "hitting up against a brick wall" or "feeling deeply stuck in the mud." Not being able to get going, or having become totally numb to events or relationships are also common. Your therapist seeks to help you get in touch with your real self and reconnect with what matters. The work might be discussing whether and how to rebuild or strengthen your relationships. Or, the work might be focused on reconfiguring your goals and establishing better patterns in your life to help unstick yourself, releasing attachments to unhealthy addictions and relinquishing ties to unrealistic aspirations.

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.

Depression can be so internally oppressive. I love helping people struggling with depression learn ways to free themselves of this awful dark cloud. To begin with is to identify the underlying the source of the depression. Often people believe that they are not good enough or are not loveable deep down inside. People define themselves by their family of origin and or experiences and filter their world in this manner. Part of treatment will be identifying these feelings and finding more accurate thinking patterns. You don't have to feel this way!

Depression is a wake-up call that something is wrong in your life. The theory of depression I have grown to respect is that depression is often a blessing in disguise. This blessing is certainly counterintuitive to what most people think of when they feel depressed or see a loved one stuck in bed all day. Your life screams, "Pay attention! Something needs to change.!" Depression is so powerful it can reduce a life to total despair and decompensation. This is where I come in. I teach my patients how to listen closer to their instincts and learn what depression is telling them about their life that needs to be set right, thus allowing healing and light, back into a dark and lonely place.
