Many people will experience some form of depression at one point in their lives. Depression can make you feel exhausted, hopeless and worthless and it not only affects personal wellbeing and physical health, but also relationships, family life and work. I specialize in working with depression because I’m passionate about helping people find more joy and happiness in life and to feel better about who they are and how they’re living.

Depression can be caused by painful past traumas, difficult current situations, or body chemistry. If the past is causing your depression, then, utilizing IFS Therapy, we work to heal the sad, scared, traumatized part of yourself and give it a chance to grieve what it has lost. If you dislike your job or feel that you are not fulfilled or satisfied with your life circumstance, then we work together to change your situation for the better and shift your perceptions. If you believe your depression is more of a chemical imbalance, there are many Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) mindfulness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance skills that can shift your chemistry and elevate your mood.

Symptoms of depression generally include difficulty sleeping, not enough energy, sometimes not eating or overeating, feeling down or irritable or sad, feeling little or no self worth, and sometimes even having suicidal thoughts. Therapy for depression has to do with first understanding what the depression is about. In our society many people don't even know how to ask questions about that. Additionally, most of us are influenced by factors that are outside of our conscious awareness, but they too need to be understood. The next step has to do with healing. Healing is a bit more complicated than this space allows, but has to do with letting go of old issues that no longer apply.

In depression you are caught in the past! You fear that your future will only be a replication of the misery and poor behavior choises that have been your past. You get caught in obsessive loops of thoughts and cannot break free. Your feelings become blunted and your optimism is eroded. I can help you escape from the cages in your mind and the dullness of your current life. With or without medication, I will help you to learn and use techniques to gain freedom and recapture your emotional depth. You will learn to live more fully in the present moment, to criticise yourself less, and to appreciate the newly percieved options that surround you.

Depression can feel like a deep fog that clouds your whole world. Yet there is something underneath, some purpose, some unknown element that needs attention. My work with clients is to address all of these pieces through practical steps, deep body-mind exploration, and seeing the spiritual context. I will also work with you to find the hidden self within that often has been hurt so deeply that she or he has given up on the world. Be prepared to feel into hidden grief. By creating a safe environment to uncover some of these wounds, we can together begin to find energy, meaning and purpose in life once again.

If you are experiencing situational or chronic depression, you need help. In a safe environment, we will explore the experiences and thought processes that lead to depression. Then, by reframing, I will help you keep what is true and discard the incorrect beliefs that caused your depression in the first place. I will encourage self-care as a way to manage and improve your mood including walking, journal writing and developing a strong social network. I will also explain the role of the brain in depression and discuss how medication can help.

Individuals struggling with depression can find the joy and opportunities in their live gradually fade. A powerful approach to treating depression involves the building of opportunity to act of aspects of life that bring joy. I work with clients to increase behavioral momentum, which is the impulse to act or move forward in life. By gradually tapping into well-selected routines and behaviors you can effectively manage your depression.

Like all big emotions, shame has it's positive role. It's a part of how we learn who we want to be, and to cultivate humility. Shame can also show up after bad experiences, when it's easier to accept a sense of responsibility than to accept that we don't/didn't have control. When shame becomes a big part of your self image, it brings with it an overall sense of being inadequate, inferior or unworthy - like you just don't fit in the world. You may need help managing your shame if any of the following are true: You feel like most people reject or are critical of you (or would if they knew you) You feel like something is fundamentally bad or wrong about you You are very prone to embarrassment,
