Depression

Most everyone sometimes feels sad. But when feelings of sadness interfere with daily life and cause pain for both you and those who around you, you may have depression. Depression affects everyone differently, so symptoms can vary widely. Depression is often characterized by a loss of interest in activities that once were pleasurable. If you are depressed, you may feel sad, unhappy, anxious, angry, troubled, empty, distracted, helpless, worthless, guilty, irritable, frustrated or agitated. You may cry for no reason and have regular thoughts about death, dying or suicide. Many people with depression also have physical symptoms such as aches and pains, loss of appetite or overeating, insomnia or excessive sleeping, fatigue, loss of energy, and digestive problems. Depression can be temporary and caused by a life event (such as child birth or the loss of a loved one) but for some it is a lifelong battle. Depression is one of the most common mental disorders in the United States affecting close to 7% of the adult population. Visiting a mental health professional is an important first step in coping with depression. If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, get help right away (Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, 800-273-8255).

There are innumerable conditions affecting our moods at all times. Sometimes we are aware of them -- a loss, a joy, anticipation. Other times these conditions are outside of our consciousness -- the pain in the world touching our hearts, a lingering dream. Therapy helps to characterize the quality of an emotional state, and then explores our ability to affect the conditions at play.

Our sadness, issues, and fears are often rooted in the unconscious, or what Jung called our 'shadow'. Depth psychology can help you navigate the turbulent waters of life by framing your life and struggles in the context of the greater web of human experience. This is often done through working with dreams, archetypes, and transformative life experiences such as initiation and rites of passage.

We don't normally think of depression and stress going together, but they can. Depression can be seen as a nervous system pushed past anxiety, shutting down because there is no escape from bad, unwanted, terrible things. These can be real things in your environment, or even thoughts or feelings. Feeling apathetic, uninterested in what used to be fun, and tired all make sense from this perspective. Luckily it is possible to retrain the nervous system to come back from this hopeless place.

Depression is one of the many emotions that can lead to a loss of enjoyment and involvement in life. People seeking counseling may want their life back, to move towards goals, to do things they used to enjoy, and to feel ok again.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Depression can be overwhelming, creating confusion and/or isolation. I don't feel that people are meant to go through it alone. Having support and access to resources can shift depressive symptoms from feeling unbearable to manageable. Using CBT and mindfulness techniques, I can help you create tools that work for you.

I have suffered from this condition myself, and value this experience for the insights it has provided me in helping others. Although there is no magic fix, making small changes in a few different areas can help you cope and recover.
