Depression is a common illness worldwide, with more than 300 million people affected. If you have feelings of sadness, worthlessness or hopelessness, or have low energy and lack of interest in activities that used to bring you pleasure, you may be experiencing symptoms of depression. Depression can cause you to suffer greatly and function poorly at work, at school, and in your family. It may cause you to isolate from loved ones and even struggle to get a good night’s sleep.
Talking with an experienced therapist will provide you with support to help resolve your depression. Psychologists are trained to provide their clients with helpful tools, coping skills and ways to challenge and change the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that may contribute to depression.
It may help to know that not everyone experiences depression in the same way. Symptoms may include, but are not limited to, low self-esteem, decreased energy, increased fatigue, poor concentration, changes in sleep and appetite, sadness, agitation and irritability. Men, women and children experience depression differently.
I have decades of experience as a therapist, which allows me to use an integrative approach when working with depression. Your unique set of circumstances and symptoms will guide and determine our work together in healing your symptoms. I am trained in supportive therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness meditation, and EMDR, as well as clinical hypnosis. As a neuropsychological expert, I have spent decades studying the manner in which brainwave patterns influence our thoughts, feelings, and actions, and I am able to utilize this knowledge to help reduce your depressive symptoms. Sometimes therapy alone is enough to resolve symptoms. For some individuals, a combination of therapy and medication may be the most helpful solution.
Depression can be complex in nature and may include a combination of genetic factors, medical issues and medications, stress and life events, and faulty mood regulation by the brain. Regardless of the cause, there are effective treatments to reduce your depression, to increase your coping skills, and to assist you in living a life of balance and harmony.
