At the beginning of treatment, I work to stabilize someone experiencing depression or depressed mood. We discuss the benefits of a daily routine, scheduling pleasant activities, social support, nutrition, exercise, overall wellness & spirituality. We then move into work understanding the history of the depression & potential causes, as well as triggers of the depressed mood. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which has been researched & is an evidence based treatment for depression. This therapy teaches you how to become aware of your thoughts & the way they impact your mood. It is not difficult to learn & you will see benefits from the tools & techniques we discuss when you apply them!

Some people put off going to therapy for depression because they assume all the therapist will do is just listen (or they have already had a therapist you did just that!). While it is helpful to have someone to be able to talk to about what is bothering you, I am trained to listen for what may be maintaining your depression and will give you tools for you to be able to decrease your depression, with some finding relief within a few sessions. My approach to working with depression involves focusing on the interaction of the body and mind, changing thoughts that are contributing to depression, and exploring how your interactions with others may be affecting your mood.
