Struggling with depression can be a lonely, isolating experience. I want you to know it does not have to be; I would be honored to sit with you, work with you, and create a space that moves you toward healing. When helping a client work through their his or her depression, I have found it most helpful to allow space for their story to be heard. By looking at our past and the experiences that have shaped us, often we can find threads or clues that point us towards the appropriate destination ahead- healthy living. I prefer to coordinate with my client's primary care physician to ensure that he or she is being treated as a whole person, mind, body, and spirit.

If you find yourself in an everlasting state of feeling down, blue, lethargic, despairing, or stuck, welcome to the the realm of depression. The good news is that just like physical pain, depression is an emotional pain, it is a symptom and not a bad thing in and of itself. It is there to tell you that something is not quite right. Just like when we feel physical pain, and we check that part of the body to see what damage may have been done in order to help ourselves, the same is true with emotional pain. Since depression is one of the most common and wide encompassing emotions, it can be a murky one to work with. In the therapy setting I will help you get to know this dark place with you.

The symptoms and causes of depression are unique to the individual who experiences them. It is important to consider the unique circumstances of the whole person. This means considering biological factors, social factors, emotional factors, spiritual factors, and thought patterns that may be leading to depression. I help clients explore the root of their symptoms and help them develop strategies for dealing with their symptoms and root causes. I address shame and help clients move towards greater self-compassion throughout the healing process.

At the center of depression is buried life force, but the causes of depression can be complex and varied. So first we work to find the source of the pain and negative self-concept. The counseling can take place in conjunction with medication or without. Therapy centers around interrupting depressive thoughts and behavioral patterns, healing old wounds and often, for Highly Sensitive & Gifted/Creative clients, re-framing their challenges as gifts and augmenting social skills. Often in this population there is a long history of anxiety that has interrupted the meaningful social connections they yearn for, caused adrenal fatigue and created hopelessness. Re-establishing Self-Compassion is key.

Depression is hard – it can create lethargy, despair, an exhausting cycle of hopelessness, and even shame. Recognizing that you are struggling with depression and reaching out for support is a huge step in and of itself. I strive to create an atmosphere where you feel welcome, safe, understood, and supported. Together, we will uncover the sources of your depression, you will gain awareness and skills to address those areas in ways you may not have even realized were possible, and you will feel genuine physical and emotional relief as you liberate yourself from detrimental habits. Depression can be transformed into a doorway for healing, sustainable change, and new possibilities for life.

If you are feeling depressed, you may not see a way out. Using a mindfulness approach, you will be able to move through what you are feeling vs feeling stuck. You leave with concrete skills that you can start using right away. Giving homework allows you to practice things in your life, to start to notice a difference, and then be able to make a change.

The overwhelming reality of modern life combined with physical health concerns and/or past or current trauma leave many vulnerable to depression. Some do not even realize they are depressed, only knowing that they have lost interest in the things that used to bring them pleasure. Counseling can help a client who is depressed to process the emotions/trauma that may have led to a person's depression; moreover, counseling can also help a client recognize what he or she needs to do in order to address or manage physical health issues which may cause the depression all by themselves.

Part of what makes depression so, well, depressing, is the crushing weight of pessimism holding your head under water. Pessimism makes it easy to believe that nothing will work out, and everything is pointless. WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND WHO YOU ARE AND LEARN HOW TO COPE, LIFE GETS BETTER. These things start to happen: You enjoy life more. You feel more relaxed. You feel closer to your friends and loved ones. You feel happy, calm, and mindful more of the time. You’re able to focus on your goals. You know that you are good enough, capable and whole.
