16 Years Experience
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
Depression is typically defined by some combination of a persistently low mood, lack of interest in activities that used to give you joy, feelings of hopelessness, sleeping too much or too little, and/or eating too much or too little. Sometime feeling depressed may lead you to feeling alone. Even so, it's estimated that 16 million Americans experience depression in any given year. Depression is a scientifically recognized condition. I am trained and certified in several research-based types of therapy for depression, yet I understand that the source of your depression is unique to your circumstance. There's no one-size-fits-all solution. Together, we will explore what's troubling you and our therapy to your needs.

Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
The main tenant of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is that thoughts come before feelings; negative thoughts create negative feelings. There are common cognitive distortions/thinking errors that people who have a problematic relationship with depression engage in. The work here is to look at the thoughts that "pop in'' and how one keeps them alive by giving them credibility. We look for alternative self-defending narratives that don't produce anxiety. When one realizes that they don't need to feed negative thinking, we start down the path of changing their relationship with depression.

Depression is insidious and limits or prevents the ability to live a fulfilling life. It is made worse by stress, trauma, and relationship difficulties which can lead us to feeling further stuck and overwhelmed. Personalized therapy effectively integrates a safe and compassionate setting with advanced therapy skills and techniques to help you address depression towards living a meaningful life. I specialize in supporting adults and couples in navigating the challenges associated with depression, anxiety, stress, grief, and relationship problems.
