A common understanding is that depression is anger turned inward. I help the client understand the sources of their depression, both biological and environmental, and build on their strengths as well as build new sources of identity to cope with the depression. In this process I am helping them create a toolbox to survive difficult emotion and strengthen their core self. This might include mindfulness work, grief work, reframing their personal narratives, coaching around new life habits and activities, learning how to set small goals for themselves, and examining the typical roles they play in their relationships, including the examination of these typical roles for satisfaction.

Depression is a real medical problem. Research has shown that depression is best treated with a combination of counseling and medical intervention. I will help you with Cognitive Behavior Therapy as well as work closely with your Primary Care Physician or refer you for a medication evaluation if we decide together that this is something that you would benefit from.
