I help clients with depression to become aware of and monitor six crucial factors identified by Dr. Stephen Illardi in his book The Depression Cure. I also help them to identify triggers, problem-solve and develop coping skills. I encourage verbal and artistic expression as well as and mindfulness-based approaches. I recommend drug therapy when appropriate and support clients in maintaining their medication regime while also making healthy lifestyle changes that support wellness. Neuro-Integration, Mandala Art Therapy, and Emotional Freedom Technique strongly support effective coping and recovery.
