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.

Dealing with the root issues, whether they are past or present, can greatly reduce symptoms of depression, while increasing the experience of inner peace and joy. In over 25 years as a Mental Health Counselor, I have worked with many people to overcome depression and live more healthy and fulfilling lives.

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.

Depression can be a debilitating experience in which there is a loss of hope and a darkness that covers the light. I've worked with many clients over the years suffering from depression and have been able to walk alongside in a way where there is a lifting of the symptoms and a renewed & freed spirit. Depression can accompany loss or be related to childhood trauma that needs to be worked through. I use an integrated approach in treating depression to include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), solutions-focused therapy, psychodynamic, and expressive arts therapy.

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.

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.

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.

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.
