Is The State of The World Making Your Depression Symptoms Worse? Do You Feel Sluggish, Unmotivated, and Isolated? Have life stressors caused you to feel like you have fallen into a dark hole and don’t know how to get out? 

Is it interfering with your motivation, drive, or goals? Has the negativity left you physically and emotionally numb? You may be having trouble getting out of bed in the morning. The thought of trying to keep up with all of your personal and professional obligations is almost too much.

Maybe you’re in a serious relationship, but depression has left you feeling unloved or misunderstood. And no matter what your partner says or does to show their support, you still feel like you’re letting them down. Maybe you haven’t felt like yourself in months or years, but you don’t have the energy to make a change.

Or perhaps the thought of letting yourself feel anything at all scares you. What if something painful is there? In addition, you may be convinced that you’ll be judged—or even abandoned—if you're open and honest about the pain you’ve experienced. And so, you’ve decided it’s better just not to feel anything at all.

The Downward Cycle

In an attempt to avoid sources of stress and sadness, you may isolate yourself further. But that social isolation and distancing have left you feeling even more alone and misunderstood. Without healthy coping skills, you may begin to experience an increase in panic attacks or phobias.

Coupled with physical depression symptoms—such as constant stomach aches, headaches, and chronic fatigue. Many people feel too physically and emotionally exhausted to even think about treatment, let alone commit to depression therapy. All you can think about is getting back home and lying down in the dark where no one needs anything from you.

Do you wish you could just feel like you again? Are you ready to work with someone who can help you manage your depression symptoms and enjoy life once more?

You Are Not Alone

Depression is widespread among children, teenagers, and adults alike. In fact, it’s one of the most common reasons people reach out for therapy. Roughly 8.7 million people are seeking some kind of help on a monthly basis for their depression. And that’s just the people actively seeking treatment. Many people who experience depression never receive a diagnosis, while others avoid outside help and put the weight of healing entirely on their own shoulders.

Happiness isn't Always a Choice

Many people are under the mistaken impression that you can just choose to be happy and get better on your own. Due to these prejudgments and societal stigma surrounding mental health, it can be embarrassing for someone suffering from depression to reach out for help. And when we see “perfect” social media posts from our friends—or articles being shared that misrepresent depression—it can increase feelings of guilt or shame and make it harder to seek outside help.

Common Reasons People Don't Seek Help

For some, it may be a past event, such as trauma or loss, that is too painful to feel or upsetting to acknowledge. For others, depression could be genetic. Moreover, depression often overlaps with anxiety, and the combination of racing thoughts and a feeling of helplessness makes it more difficult to define and address.

Regardless of the root cause, untreated depression can result in serious health complications, and it’s important to reach out sooner rather than later. Working with an experienced therapist can give you the guidance and support you need to feel better about life again.

Depression Therapy Can Help Foster Hope and Joy

When you feel perpetually sad and exhausted, reaching out for help may seem like too much to take on. But when you learn skills and strategies to heal depression fully, you can spend less energy “getting by” and invest more of yourself in personal and professional activities. In my practice, I provide a safe space where you are free to be yourself and express your honest fears and doubts without judgment.

I help you develop the skills and awareness you need to recognize what’s happening in your mind and body. Ultimately, allowing you to break the unhealthy patterns that are keeping you stuck in this negative cycle.

What To Expect

In our first session together, I will meet you where you are in your struggle with depression. We’ll explore how depression is affecting your life and discuss your goals for therapy. I understand that depression affects everyone in a different way, and the surest path to healing starts with tailoring my approach to your individual needs and goals.

Once we establish the changes you want to see happen, we can develop a plan to help you get there. Throughout our work together, I will incorporate a variety of skills and strategies to help you manage depression symptoms and push back on negative thinking that has left you feeling trapped.


Learning mindfulness skills helps you come into the moment, rather than dwelling on painful memories. I will show you how to focus and relax enough to be able to address what’s in front of you. Mindfulness techniques like body centering and breathing/relaxation methods can help you process difficult thoughts and emotions in a healthier, more hopeful way.


CBT helps address the “why” behind negative thinking patterns and behaviors associated with depression. When you understand how negative thinking affects your actions, you can change how you view the world and your place.


EMDR has been shown to help target phobias and traumas. In many cases, the root cause of depression lies in unprocessed trauma, loss, anxiety, or fears. By exploring the factors that are contributing to your depression in a safe, therapeutic space, you can learn to challenge harmful self-beliefs at a subconscious level and without guilt or self-blame.


Somatic therapy helps you develop more insight into how depression affects you physically. You can recognize where you hold pain or tension in the body so you can alleviate depression symptoms before they become overwhelming.
