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.

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.

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.

Portland, Oregon 97206 |

I work with many clients who struggle with different kinds of depression. Sometimes it is related to a difficult life event or events. Sometimes it is biologically-based. Other times it may be both. While medication may be warranted in many cases, it is just one piece of the puzzle. My therapeutic style involves respectful probing of the source of the pain and sadness. Many people feel unable to move on from a particular event so I work hard to help my clients release themselves from their pain and agony. You deserve peace and happiness.

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.
