If you have a pulse and a heart, you have been sad. Using the science of happiness rather than standard interventions for depression we focus on increasing positive emotion, engagement, and meaning rather than directly targeting depressive symptoms. In using these interventions with clients I have noted the effects of these interventions in a variety of settings. In informal and clinical settings these interventions have commonly been reported to me and referred to as “life-changing.”

Depression is a feeling that can feel incredibly heavy to hold. Sometimes we experience challenging life events that leave us feeling much sadness, grief, inner pain and lack of joy, which interfere with our daily functioning. That is called depression. With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (challenging unhelpful thoughts) and psychodynamic modalities, I can help you work through that sadness, heaviness and pain, so that you may begin the journey of healing work. This is the first step towards holding the sadness, addressing yourself in a safe space so we can slowly help you process and shift to start feeling lighter and start seeing the sunshine and tasting the small joys in everyday life.

Depression is often a "check engine" light that there are things we love and enjoy doing, are good at, our passions and interests – but we aren't doing them or making time for them. It leaves a hole in our life..often filled by unhealthy, downer stuff. We aren't powerless; we are empowered to identify those needs and wants and joys, and make them happen. Overcoming depression takes feeling I'm behind the steering wheel of my life. Often, we just need a start, a push, a move in a good direction, and get the ball rolling – the depression fades, or becomes far easier to handle.

Depression and sadness, though sometimes quite serious, are also a part of our human experience. I have a deep appreciation for our depressions; from light malaise, apathy and low energy, to and deep, dark places. It is important to normalize as much as possible, examine what our beliefs of happiness are, and to understand our emotions and what triggered and triggers them. We are not simply what we feel in the moment, and things do, get better. I am here for you, to examine, advise and suggest, but most importantly to listen and take seriously your pain. To be here for you.

We all experience sadness that may seem to be crippling, often times keeping us from moving forward. It may be that you have been living like this for some time and in silence. You need not accept this way of life. I work with clients to help them recognize their potentials and use that awareness to create opportunities for change. Stop suffering, lets start creating a better tomorrow.

I have a multifacted approach to depression. If need be, I help you understand why you are depressed and how to change. I offer hypnosis and EMDR and meditation which all can transform the brain so that centers for depression become smaller and areas of well-being increase. I use behavioral approaches, encouraging physical activity, contact with nature, re-thinking negative thought processes. If you wish, I can help you connect with a spiritual side of yourself to put depression in perspective. And, if needed, I will recommend medication.

It seems that whenever we're feeling down about our lives, we're told to take a pill. Antidepressants are by far the most prescribed medication in the United States. But what if that approach is wrong for the majority of people? What if the problem was how we view ourselves? My approach to depression varies vastly from our culture's. I believe most feel depression because, in this ultra-competitive world, they often feel like they aren't enough. They don't weigh the right weight or make enough money or have the right relationship. And as result, they are often ashamed and angry with themselves. I can help you see your world differently.
