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."

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.
