There are many causes for depression and many forms of depression, from reactive depressions to deep internal depressions. Sudden depressions as well as long lasting depressions are not to be ignored. They are serious emotional responses which can benefit extensively from appropriate counseling and therapeutic interventions. Having a caring and listening ear to talk to during a time of depressive despair can be extremely healing. It is often stated that a healthy listening relationship can heal beyond measure. There are depressions which will benefit from medical interventions along with talking interventions. In general, cared for depressions will greatly improve and most will pass.

I want to help you feel better, in a way that is deep rooted and lasting. When suffering from depression, it's difficult to believe that your outlook or life will ever improve. While the hopelessness you may feel is all too real, the bleakness of the future it points to is not. Whether your depression is long-standing or traceable to some recent situation, I believe a different reality is possible. I could not do this work if I didn't trust this to be true, or see evidence of it with others I've helped. My focus will be to help you find your own lost source of vision and contentment. Regarding medication, it's one option of many and not warranted in every case, but best discussed together.

Frequently, the things we want or need to change serve a purpose for us. They become a part of our identity and while they can cause us distress, their removal from our lives threatens us at a deep level. We are constantly creating an identity for ourselves and the very idea of change represents a threat to that identity. I can help you work through your depression by getting you to focus more concretely on the issues and symptoms you face in a safe and supportive environment. Together we will process some of the various things contributing to your depression, and creatively collaborate on how you can use your internal strengths to change.

Anyone who has struggled with depression knows that relief can be hard to come by. I take a very pro-active and collaborative approach in working with clients facing depression. I help clients both work with and manage their depressive symptoms, as well as helping them access and work through the underlying causes of those symptoms. For example, I find that addressing the anger, grief or sadness that is oftentimes "underneath" the depression goes a tremendous way in beginning to shift the depression itself. When appropriate, I also work collaboratively with a client's physician to build treatment plans that include both medication and therapy, an often very effective combination.

Depression (and anxiety) are normal responses to painful environments. Are finding it difficult to be motivated? Are you lower energy than you should be? Is it hard to get out of bed? Do you get irritable for no reason at times? If so, you may be suffering from depression. I attack depression from two angles. One strategy is using CBT strategies to help you manage some of your symptoms. I also use EMDR, attachment based psychotherapy, and body / nervous system informed strategies to help you transform some of the underlying brain mis-wiring that is there from your past. Don't find somebody that just stares at you and lets you continue to be depressed. Let's do something about this!

If you are reading this, and wondering if you might be depressed, you probably are. Even if one is used to it, depression sucks the life energy out of a person, dampening their ability to concentrate, to be creative or have hope for a good future. Depression is different from the blues, which may last just a day or two. Depression can be mild, moderate or severe, but left unchecked, it can become chronic. Please call or email me so I can help you to assess where you are right now in terms of the feelings that you are having that are holding you back from a meaningful, productive and happy life.

Depression can set in when our emotions or negative thought patterns become overwhelming and too much to hold. Pain or hardship often is too much to hold alone. With my help, we can start to open to emotion, bring a wise awareness to thought patterns, and to find aliveness again. If we can make friends with our emotions, stop fighting them, and to recognize their purpose in regulating the nervous system or showing us what matters to us, tremendous resilience can be found on the other side.

Everyone suffers from depression from time to time. However, I like to think of depression as occurring on a spectrum. Some people experience it more frequently and severely than others. My approach is to assess depression for the severity and it's origin to see how we can work together to manage your symptoms for you. I work with you to identify the triggers, the symptoms, as well as what helps to alleviate your distress.
