Depression is that feeling that zaps out the good and somehow makes the bad seem 100 times worse. It is the spiral that spins you dizzy with sadness, makes time go by slower and subtracts the happy from our worlds. Depression comes in many shapes and sizes and masquerades as all kinds of other issues. I can assist you in addressing your depression through reality testing, unconditional positive regard and rational behavior therapy.

A need for emotional connection is wired into our DNA as a survival mechanism. But in response to childhood experiences, you may have developed patterns of relating to people that interfere with that essential attachment, so you feel chronically disconnected and depressed. At one time, these patterns protected you from a less than nurturing environment. But now they’re doing more harm than good. Like a self-fulfilling prophecy, your expectations about how others will treat you can lead you to behave in ways that elicit the very responses you fear. EFT can help you heal your relationships and mood. Research shows EFT can be as effective as medication in relieving the symptoms of depression.

Depression is biological, emotional and physical in nature. If you're feeling overwhelmed, or like you are paralyzed in specific areas of your life. It's easy to stop trying. Make attempts to seek out help and connect to someone in the areas that bring you shame and feelings of worthlessness. Therapy can give an opportunity to confess those thoughts, in a safe environment, in order to come out from under the shame you feel and begin to find freedom.

I practice a type of therapy for depression called Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which research has shown to be especially effective with depressive disorders. Using CBT, we work together to discover underlying beliefs (which we call cognitive distortions) that are causing or contributing to your depressive symptoms. Once identified, we then use a variety of techniques to help you correct those thinking patterns that are causing you difficulty. We measure progress constantly so that we can try new techniques if needed, to help you feel better.

Talk therapy is incredibly beneficial for all areas of treatment, especially depression. Psychotherapy will help the depressed client to identify and understand life problems. Therapy will explore life problems and the cognitions behind the thoughts that lead to the depressed feelings. Together, in a safe and warm environment the client will be able to regain a sense of control and pleasure.

Depression is stigmatized, leaving sufferers feeling isolated. Lack of education regarding depression causes others to assume its under the person's control; when often there are biological factors blocking healing. Callous terms like "Snap out of it" leave the sufferer feeling all the more hopeless, because they can't snap out of it any more than a diabetic can snap out of diabetes without medical attention or treatment. Depression can be the result of a depletion of significant hormones in the brain. The Word of God is a powerful tool I use with clients to stifle the negative cognitions of depression. I refer clients for medical intervention when depression is not responding to therapy.

Depression affects every aspect of a person's life. I educate my clients about the effects of depression, I assure them that there is no shame in being depressed and that is is widely recognized as a medical condition. I help them change negative thoughts and behavior patterns and explore situations that contribute to the problem. I may offer a referral for medication if needed and I give them effective tools for regaining their joy of living.

Life can be very stressful these days. Cell phones, I Pads, smart phones, e mail, social networks all are fun and wonderful but they also bring with them higher expectations from work, family, friends and even ourselves. Our world keeps speeding up and the pressures can be great. Depression as an outgrowth of the stresses and pressures that surround us is becoming increasing common and a part of each of our lives. Most of us will experience depression at one or more points in our lives. Medication can help but is usually not the long term answer. We will work to identify the problems, find solutions, set goals and work toward minimizing the causes and find more peace and calm.

In our life journey we inevitably come across a period of darkness, depression or lack of motivation. Sometimes it is triggered by an event or failed relationship and sometimes we come to the realization that much of our lives has already been lived in this gloominess. Through the counseling process you can share what you've truly been experiencing and explore the depths of your depression in a private, safe environment all while coming to an understanding of what it means to be good to yourself. And in turn others.
