Depression is a chronic sense of isolation, loss of hope, and worthlessness that can impair every area of life. It commonly occurs with other life issues, such as anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, addiction, marital issues, etc. A person's mood is directly affected by their thoughts, and treatment involves learning to recognize toxic thinking patterns as ... learned emotion-command neural pathways of the brain, adapting mindful ways of replacing and shifting to life enriching patterns.

There are many varieties of depression, from the nearly universal experience of “blues” to soul-crushing, “can’t lift my head out of bed” depression. We help sort out the source of depression, which can include being emotionally “underfed”, to un-grieved losses, trauma experiences, biological disorders, family emotional inheritance, and a lack of connection with your inner source of guidance. After exploring the experience of depression, and the context of a client’s life, we collaboratively shape a plan of treatment, and carefully monitor progress. We coordinate with other care providers, such as physicians.

When you experience a severely depressed mood and decreased activity level for an extended period of time, your life really changes. Hope disappears, joy drains from life, and you may feel isolated, alone, and stuck. Your efforts may fall behind in school or at work, and your relationships may feel strained. But change is possible! Although depression controls your current experience, it does not define who you most truly are. Counseling can help you break the chains of depression, and create a new experience which includes hope and a meaningful connection to life. To determine if we can work together, please contact me to schedule a FREE 15-minute phone consultation.
