Depression can be so cunning because many of us don't even know we are struggling with it. The problem is Depression makes facing it seem like climbing a mountain without the will to do so. I provide understanding and motivation to clients struggling with Depression. I work with clients who may not want to use medication as part of the solution and others who may need talk therapy in addition to medication. There is hope, and you are not alone.

Clinical depression is likely the most unappreciated, disrespected illness in existence. For those who have never experienced it, they can't possibly understand what it feels like. As a fellow sufferer, I know how debilitating depression can be, and I even understand how destructive it can be. Depression, if untreated, can destroy your life. Having healthy relationships with others becomes impossible, and one day, you may not be able to drag yourself out of bed to get to work, even in the face of certain termination. Depression can be caused by chemical imbalances in the nervous system, or by runaway, skewed thoughts that dance around our head. It can be treated, but you must ask for help.

One of my clients once explained her depression to me as falling down a well and being stuck at the bottom. People would tell her to get over it, feel better, etc., but she believed that being stuck at the bottom of the well was an impossible situation to get out of. It is that sort of dismissal that leaves people feeling isolated and alone with their depression. In therapy, I will help you find a way to climb out, without the pressure of someone telling you to simply "get over it." We will take our sessions at whatever pace you are comfortable with.

Depression is more than feeling sad. Depression is a sustained period of feeling "down," accompanied by some or all of the following symptoms: decreased interest in activities that were previously enjoyable; decreased concentration; decreased energy; difficulty sleeping; hopelessness; thoughts and/or acts of self-harm; marked weight gain/loss; increased irritability; isolating from friends/family. Note: this list is not meant to diagnosis depression. If you feel that you may be struggling with depression, you do not need to struggle alone. Depression is treatable and you can recover. Not all depression needs to be treated with medication. Together we will chart your course to recovery.

While the causes of depression remain unclear, we are fortunate to have many approaches which have helped countless people regain their lives. As there may be many factors involved in why an individual is depressed I always do a thorough assessment. While I am not adverse to psychiatric medications I have concluded that their use for depression is questionable, albeit an option when combined with therapies such as Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, Behavioral Activation, and Logotherapy. I have found that taking a holistic approach, tailoring the therapy to the client and their world, is the best approach to treating depression.
