Depression is so sticky. Sometimes it is overwhelming and it is hard to see any light. Other times depression is just barely under the surface, always just a split second away as you try so hard to keep up with your life. In therapy we will look at those grooves your brain has learned to run down, the grooves that have decided depression is "home base" or the best way of coping with the situations you are in. Thankfully you are more resilient even than you realize. Your whole self (brain included!) is ready to write new pathways as you create a support system for yourself in this new season. Isolation increases and intensifies depression. Let's create a path forward - into more light!

Depression can leave you feeling sad, tired and even hopeless. It likes to put a negative spin on everything, even twisting what you believe about yourself and your life. It messes with your ability to feel connected and competent and can even leave you feeling unworthy or a burden. I’ve been there. We’ll start where you are, I’ll help you put language to your experience and identify achievable steps and tools you can use to begin to feel more alive and confident in your life. My style is compassionate and interactive. Let's find your path out.

When someone is depressed, they have little hope about life ever getting better. That is how I help clients- I have the hope for them when they cannot fathom it. We build on this hope together until the client can own it for themselves. Once you have even a sliver of hope that you will no longer be swallowed up by darkness, we will continue to build on that by healing old wounds and coming free from past shame. At this point, your depression no longer has the same power over you! Feeling depressed can be a long road to walk out of, but don't have to feel this way forever.

In my work with clients experiencing depression, I bring with me many years of watching individuals learn to cope toward leading a life of meaning -- and even joy! Depression is a reality for many people, but it is also treatable. In counseling, you may feel less isolated with plenty of space to talk about the reality of depression that is not often shared in our daily relationships. I gather a variety of evidence based treatments from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy combined with unconditional positive regard to work with clients, instilling hope.

When working with clients who are suffering from depression, I like to work on two parallel tracks at once. The first is a practical track designed to help the client start making changes in his/her external life. For example, if someone is socially isolated, I help him/her figure out how he/she can start to be around other people. The second track is an interior track through which we examine the root causes of the depression and begin to heal the inner wounds that have led to the person's suffering in the first place. I find that, through working on both these levels at once, depression is more quickly and effectively shifted.

Do you feel tired? Numb? No motivation or anticipation for what you once enjoyed? Depression can be like a thick, gray blanket pressing you down. You want out from under it, but can't imagine how that might be possible. In fact, just thinking about what could help makes you tired...and more depressed. If this is your experience, it's crucial you bring it to someone who can understand you and your depression. Someone who can slowly, compassionately "take your hand" and find a way through the dismal fog with you. Someone who meets you where you are, yet holds onto the true experience of hope and joy on your behalf, helping you rediscover your life again.

Depression keeps millions from gaining a sense of self and identity in the world while keeping them in darkness. Do not suffer alone. Therapy will bring to light issues you are struggling with and help you gain control of your life and meet the goals you've set for yourself. There are many ways to tackle depression, I've found that psychotherapy, self-exploration, CBT and RET works wonders with clients going through depression.

When individuals are depressed, they tend to think about the world in negative ways and they believe that things are out of their control. While there is usually a basis for these feelings, it is also important to remember that you can feel better. In therapy, I will teach you coping strategies to improve the quality of your life, and to change the way you think, feel, and behave.

Depression. It's one of the most core maladies to all of humanity. Catholic monks used to call it "acedia" or the noon day demon; robbing one's will, the ability to freely engage in life. In the modern day, we have more methods than ever to "escape" the feelings we don't like. Yet depression is one of the ones that stick around. My work focuses on facing depression while not villainizing it. I pay particular attention to both your life story and who you are here and now. Through this we can learn to work with our emotions and find new ways of dealing with the messiness of life.
