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.

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.

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 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.

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.
