Depression is often a "check engine" light that there are things we love and enjoy doing, are good at, our passions and interests โ€“ 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 โ€“ the depression fades, or becomes far easier to handle.

Depression and anxiety are the two most diagnosed psychological conditions in our Western world. The depressed clients who I have successfully treated came to me with a deep frustration in their souls.My approach is a multi-pronged approach. I work holistically to bring awareness to physical, biological and nutritional issues that might be contributing to the problem. Concurrently, In our psychotherapeutic work we develop tools to explore and express the unique and authentic life that each client so richly deserves. The soul's wishes can be expressed when self-limiting patterns are released and a more joyful life follows.

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.

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.

The benefits of therapy for depression are indisputable, since treatment offers the important opportunity to be deeply understood and affirmed. Depression is one of the most frequently cited reasons for seeking treatment. It's also highly amenable to treatment. In addition to helping you understand what lies behind your depression, we'll establish a good strong working relationship which is an important bulwark against future depression and supports the growing self as it strives toward health.

Registered Psychotherapist

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.

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.

Jessica Allen, LCSW, ACT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapist

Have you ever had a day where you woke up and noticed that you just felt โ€˜offโ€™ or down? Everyone experiences times in their life where they may feel more down. This is completely normal and expected. It can be caused from circumstances (e.g. stress at work, unemployment, death). Depression is different than just feeling down. Depression can look different on each individual person but our goal is to help you define what life would look like if you weren't feeling depressed and set goals to get you there. We work on changing the way we see and perceive the world and change our behaviors, to ultimately change how we feel.

Depression is very difficult to address on ones own. Often clients don't know its depression as their thoughts and feelings almost begin to feel normal. They forget about how life once was and need a help in climbing out of the dark hole that they feel there in. I will use few different approaches including referrals for medication when a client feels they are ready or request it.

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.
