Talk therapy is an extremely effective treatment for depression. Therapy gives you the tools to treat depression from a variety of angles. What you learn in therapy gives you skills and insight to help prevent depression from coming back. I can teach you practical techniques on how to reframe negative thinking and employ behavioral skills in combating depression. Therapy can also help you work through the root of your depression, helping you understand why you feel a certain way, what your triggers are for depression, and what you can do to stay healthy.

Do negative thoughts or memories trigger waves of sadness? Has talk therapy or medication failed to get to the core? Does your depression keep coming back? First you need to know that you are not alone, many people secretly struggle with depression for years or decades. Many only get partial relief from medication and traditional 45-minutes-once-a-week talk therapy for depression. Thankfully, there is an alternative. I use 3-hour sessions to help you achieve up to 3 months of therapy in each session, focused on getting to the root & the core with an ACHIEVEMENT CENTERED approach that is more like a coach that gets you to run one more lap than you thought that you could.

Lack of pleasure, emotional deadness, lack of energy, withdrawal from those people and activities that we have valued, and a constant stream of negative thoughts about life are part of what depression does to us. Stress in relationships at home and work and early trauma can create depression. A caring relationship with an experienced and genuine other offers the way out of depression. This is what I provide for you.

I feel that depression effects all of us at one time or another, however, my approach is simple and that is to focus your negative thoughts into positive thoughts. Much of the time, depression can be reversed through cognitive restating statements or "reframes." For example, " I get the summer blues because summer is over and there isn't anything to look forward too." A reframe would be, " summer is over, however, I am looking forward to the fall and beautiful colors of the leaves."

My therapy approach is well suited to help you recover from your depression, because all emotions begin with our thoughts. I will guide you to exprience your own insights about the nature of thought and how your thinking contributes to your experience of frustration which ultimately leads to sadness and a depressed state of mind. I also provide a variety of resources for you so that you feel supported while you go through the process.
