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.

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.

While external circumstances and biology definitely can affect our moods, so can our underlying beliefs about ourselves and our relationships. My goal is to teach people how to explore their feelings without being overwhelmed by them. Once we become more connected safely to ourselves, our connection with the external world begins to change too. We may also look at changing diet and exercise, find ways to balance work, play and rest so you can feel replenished and nurture what is meaningful in your life.

There are multiple reasons why an individual might experience such a state as depression. Often I have found that it is typically being overwhelmed by lifes challenges and uncertainties which then leads to apathy. Other times it is a event like the loss of of job, a loved one, marital difficulties or even just a biological issues. The first goal, then in therapy, is to assess the underlying cause. Once this is accomplished, it is then possible to look for solutions that are tailored to the individual's specific needs so that time is not wasted in pursuing goals.
