What is depression?
How do you know if you are struggling with depression? Depression often hides under the guise of anger, fatigue, and feeling checked out. Depression can appear in many forms including mental, physical, and behavioral. Depression can make it difficult to get out of bed, result in over or under eating, and take away both joy and motivation in life.
What is the effect of depression?
Depression is often described as living with a dark cloud or weight attached to the ankle. To execute the most simple task can feel nearly impossible with this physical and mental weight holding you down. Depression challenges your ability to connect and experience meaning in everyday life. When depression is severe enough you may question your ability or willingness to live. If you have these thoughts it is important to get professional help from a licensed therapist and you can always call National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
How I work with depression?
Using our safe and genuine therapeutic relationship as a foundation, I will thoroughly explore the challenges you face as a result of depression. Similar to trauma, I believe both the brain and body experience and exhibit signs of depression that need to be recognized and processed. Often times depression can be a result of trauma or loss. I aim to help understand and explore how your individual life circumstances weigh into your unique experience. Using talk therapy and therapies such as Brainspotting and Somatic Experiencing, I will work with you to compose a comprehensive treatment plan using a full understanding of your situation.
