I use cognitive behavioral and emotional therapy to treat depression. You will leave sessions with a sense of direction and a plan for living better each week. We we will examine the cause of your depression, and consider your unique thinking processes to find "errors in thinking" that drag you down, then I will help you make healthy changes. We will also look at your life scripts - those messages and beliefs you grew up with that may not be serving you so well now.

Depression tends to weigh us down and prevent us from getting more joy out of life. It literally "presses down" on our natural energy and enthusiasm. What is this force that presses down? Where does it come from? How does it work? As we explore your experience of depression these questions get filled in, we get a better sense of it, and we begin to find room to maneuver, shifting the weight of depression, getting some relief. And as we do this together, you are no longer alone in the struggle. In this way, new life and new possibilities spontaneously emerge.

Depression is often a way for the body to provide safety from overwhelming emotions - feelings like sadness, loneliness and fear. My approach is to work closely with the person feeling depressed, following their lead, to uncover the feelings underlying the depression, and allow those feelings to be experienced. Once this happens, the depression loses its power and healing can begin.
