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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
