Depression is a crippling disorder with many possible causes, including personal loss, genetics, and emotional distress. Often genetic depression can be treatable medically, and personal loss can dissipate with time. But ongoing emotional distress without any clear cause is best treated with effective talk therapy.
My approach to depression is about carefully building an understanding of what is behind the sadness. We don’t simply focus on today or yesterday; we explore the recurring patterns that underlie your darkest feelings. By working together on the issues in your life which have given rise to the depression, we can find better ways to eliminate that distress.
