Depression Therapy

Depression can feel like an endless fog, engulfing you in a sense of hopelessness, emptiness, and isolation. It affects not only your mood but also your relationships, work, and daily functioning. Depression can look different for everyone. You may also experience: ​

  • Little to no interest in people or activities

  • Loss of appetite 

  • Irritability 

  • Social withdrawal

  • Constant fatigue and trouble sleeping (either too much or too little)

  • Guilt, worthlessness, helplessness, or hopelessness

  • Thoughts about not wanting to live

It's normal to feel hopeless sometimes.

Feeling hopeless is something many of us experience, especially when faced with the complexities of society. For many people, it's feeling really tough out there, with so many challenges and uncertainties weighing on our minds. It's okay to feel overwhelmed sometimes, to feel like things are just too much to handle. These moments of hopelessness are a natural response to the world around us, and you're not alone in feeling this way. Whether you are experiencing depression or normal feelings of hopelessness, reaching out for support can help you with managing the burdens.

Reaching out for support feels hard.

Depression can feel like a heavy weight on your shoulders that just won't lift, affecting every aspect of your life. It's not just a passing feeling; it's persistent and can make even the smallest tasks seem impossible. Even reaching out for support can seem daunting. However, taking that initial step towards seeking help, no matter how small, can lead to significant progress in your journey towards healing.

Find hope again: How I approach depression therapy.

Together, we will approach depression therapy with a holistic and integrative mindset.

With bottom-up approaches, such as EMDR and IFS, we will focus on building a solid foundation of safety and stability, addressing the emotional and physiological aspects of depression through guided mindfulness, relaxation techniques, and somatic-oriented interventions. Simultaneously, we use top-down strategies to explore the cognitive components of depression, working collaboratively to identify and challenge negative thought patterns and beliefs.

Most importantly, you will not be alone as we work together towards finding solutions and creating a brighter future filled with hope and possibility.
