I help people struggling with depression and dysthymia. Dysthymia is a non-disabling, chronic depression that keeps us from functioning well or from feeling good. It has many of the same symptoms as major depression, but they may not be as severe. When we're down, taking care of ourselves can seem overwhelming. The more we don't take care of ourselves, the more we impact our brain's ability to work properly. It can be a vicious cycle. Learning to identify and properly express our feelings can start the process of taking care of our emotional well-being. I help my clients choose positive values that help in making decisions and having a sense of direction and purpose.

Depression is a common co-occurring issue with addiction. Most of the time you are self-medicating depression with addictive behavior. Why does your system "depress"? For most people (unless you have an organic brain disease or injury) depression is situational. When you address the underlying issues surrounding the situation and start doing the next right thing the depression lifts.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.
