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 first step is to understand the underlying cause of the depression. Most depressive issues can be treated with the whole-body treatment viewpoint: Sleep strategies because sleep is the body's natural healer Appropriate nutrition as there is a direct link from gut to brain Exercise to release "feel good" endorphins PCP care coordination: Herbal supplements have been effective for many clients In severe cases, medication

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
