Depression can manifest itself in different ways. It's most well-known manifestation is tearfulness, isolation, low self-esteem, hopelessness, and negative self-talk. Depression can also show up as irritability, patterns of avoidance, aggression, and anxiety. Because of 1) the more popular face of depression and 2) the stigma attached to it, people encounter difficulty in reaching out for and receiving help. It can be a really frustrating, hopeless place to feel stuck. I will help you to come to a place of understanding your depression and give you tools to understand and manage the symptoms.

Depression can be completely debilitating. If you are suffering from depression, you've probably heard "what do you have to be depressed about?" from well-intentioned loved ones. The negative stigma that society places on those suffering from depression may have prevented you from seeking out help in the past. I recognize that depression is very real, and is NOT a character flaw. Together, we will explore your past as well as the dynamics of your present life to identify experiences or underlying unmet needs that may be contributing to your depression, and work together to determine the most effective way to alleviate your emotional and physical pain.

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.

Clients who come indue to patterns of depression, ask me how they can shrug off the heavy oppressive feeling that they live with on a regular basis. Many of them are tired of being tired. I remind them that the act of making and keeping an appointment is a big hurdle and congratulate them on reaching out for a collaborative professional hand. We co-discover their daily and seasonal patterns as an important first step. I work closely and compassionately with Clients to increase their awareness of how their thoughts and body are intimately connected.Through mindfulness meditation techniques and learning to be in the present moment, people begin to see the light at the end tunnel.

Depression is a chronic state of sadness and/or irritability that can undermine a person's well-being and steal away joy, self-esteem, productivity, and relational health. Although chemical changes in the body affect depression, relational experiences that are affirming, empathic, and supportive/encouraging can contribute to restoration of self-functioning that preceded the depression. I work with my clients to explore roots to the depression, build self-awareness, and take corrective actions in thought life, interpersonal relationships, and behavioral choices. Healing can and does take place, and depression can be a thing of the past!

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.

Slowly sinking into depression happens to many without their awareness. It can start as grief or illness or strife that seems to take up residence in our very body and mind. Recovery includes individually sorting emotion, thinking and actions. Using standard Cognitive Behavioral, or more creative Narrative Therapy can bring us back to the surface again.

Is depression negatively impacting your work, relationships, and quality of life? In my approach to treating depression, I draw on powerful counseling techniques to address the root cause of your emotional pain (e.g. feeling sad, anxious, unmotivated, and stuck). We also address the negative thinking (e.g. I’m a failure, I’m worthless) that continuously fuels your depressive symptoms. Another area of focus is developing practical skills (e.g. mindfulness, stress reduction, emotion processing) that help to prevent and reduce symptoms of depression and strengthen access to positive emotions. Why wait any longer? You can feel lighter, happier, and more fulfilled in all areas of your life.

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.
