DEPRESSION

Depression is very common and can take on many forms such as feeling down or hopeless, losing interest in pleasurable activities, feeling more tired or irritable than usual, isolating yourself from others, trouble concentrating, difficulty or excess sleeping, or experiencing a change in appetite or weight, among others. Unfortunately, despite depression being as common as it is, many people feel embarrassed or ashamed to seek help and often spend a lot of time, if not years, suffering alone. 

If you think you may be experiencing depression, speaking with someone can be useful to help work through the personal struggle towards gaining a sense of relief.

 

I offer a non-judgmental environment to explore issues surrounding depression and utilize various approaches in treatment based on the specific needs of each client. Relational psychoanalysis is incorporated to work towards a meaningful understanding of the sources of depression within a supportive therapeutic alliance, while cognitive interventions may be used to address underlying negative personal beliefs and their replacement with more adaptive ones.
