In working with depression it is important for me to know a persons life history of depression. We look at when and how often a person has experienced or and been treated for depression in the past. Since there are several kind of depression ranging from depression related to acurrent problem or what we call a stressor to a depression which is caused by chemical changes in the brain which suggests a person may need psychotherapy as well as medication from a doctor. When I have determined the type of depression the person is dealing with , I make atreatment plan to help them get through the depression.

Depression is often a result of unprocessed losses in life. Taking the time to work through those things that have not been properly grieved, can greatly lessen the amount of depression you feel. A trained professional can come alongside you and help you sort through what has accumulated and is now a burden that inhibits living a full and satisfying life. We often carry a 'preserved mood' from our childhood that represents a place we were left alone to process, without the ability to do so. We can visit those old, stuck places and help free you up to move forward in life.

Depression affects many people regardless of age, culture or lifestyle. While the effects of depression are far reaching, I belive it can be overcome with the right intervention. My approach to depression begins with empathy & understanding while working with my client to discover not only the best course for addressing the distressing symptoms but also the root causes of depression. My goal is to restore my clients ability to lead stronger, healthier, more fulfilled lives.

Depression counseling involves assessing and making appropriate changes in the physical, emotional, and relational aspects of a client's life that are contributing to depressed mood. I work with clients to both remedy the underlying causes and their resulting cognitions, and the lifestyle habits that hinder their recovery. Often it is appropriate to work in conjunction with medical professionals who may suggest medications and/or nutritional supplements to correct the biochemical aspects of depressive episodes. Clients benefit most when their treatment is comprehensive and avoids dealing solely with symptom relief.

Depression can feel overwhelming and keep us from being the person that we want and know we can be. Many times it can be an indicator of difficult and painful relationships or situations in our life. It's important to explore the causes and/or triggers for our depression, and see how the slide into a depressive state has occurred. Rather than feeling stuck, we can start to explore your sadness or lack of motivation and start to rebuild the parts of you that are able to experience a life of happiness and contentment.

Are you feeling a loss of hope or less interest in the things that used to bring you pleasure? While we all get low, persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” feelings may be indicators of depression. When you are experiencing feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness that aren’t going away, it’s time to get help. Often when people are experiencing these emotions they feel isolated and that life will always be this way I treat people who are experiencing these feelings and help them to address the causes and symptoms associated with their depression, so that they can enjoy life again.

There are two emotions which can be utilized in the process of healing from trauma: anger and sadness. Sadness can be a very effective vehicle for healing. The only problem with sadness is that it is such a short leap from there to depression. Sadness heals; depression does not. Depression can keep a person stuck in the same place for years without any progress. You must be very careful not to fall into depression when you decide to explore your feelings about the negative experiences of your life. Unfortunately, many people find the difference between sadness and depression to be obscure at best, and they often vacillate between the two. We encourage you to be very careful of depression becau....
