Depression & Mood Disorders

Feeling sad is a natural emotion that everyone experiences. However, depression is extreme sadness that just does not pass with time. It distorts everything that you see, think, and feel and makes everything in your life seem gloomy and undesirable. 

“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.” – Carl Jung

HELPING YOU PUT THINGS BACK INTO PERSPECTIVE

As a Clinical Psychologist, I have extensive experience helping individuals struggling with depression to better understand and manage the signs and symptoms of depression, develop effective stress management skills, and make healthy and effective lifestyle changes to promote positive mood and a better quality of life.

Depression does not just affect your brain, it affects your entire body psychologically and physically. There are several research studies linking depression with increased levels of inflammation and pain. In addressing depression, I have found that it is imperative to also address those other co-occurring conditions such as sleep difficulties, chronic pain, anxiety and other mental health or medical conditions.

You can put things back into perspective and feel alive again, rather than numb and disconnected from yourself and the world around you. To schedule an appointment or for a free 15-minute phone consultation, please contact me today. I’d be happy to discuss your treatment options with you.
