My treatment approach is client-centered and geared towards working " with you ", and loved ones if you so request. We will develop a plan together that will involve psychotherapy and treatment goals built around activities, places, and things that you enjoy.  Have a favorite person or pet?  They can become your co-pilot in your battle against depression.  We can explore natural remedies such as supplements, increased physical activity, and natural sunlight.  We can discuss the option of medication and if interested, I can provide excellent referral sources if that is your choice.  Many people are able to not need medication, and work on it with their personal plan.  Each person's depression is unique, and we will conquer the symptoms and discover the causes, and develop a long-termed management plan together.  Depression is not a sign of weakness, nor is it your fault unless you do not seek help.  The people who typically need the most help, are very proud, hardworking people, and put themselves last.  The sooner we can intervene, the sooner a person will feel relief.

The main focus will be educating you about your unique depression, and helping you understand where you are, and what might be the best steps to take.  We can discover from where your depression stems, be it biological/genetic, environmental, hormonal, or caused chemically.  We can develop a unique "personalized plan" to help you better recognize any future symptoms and their triggers, so you stay healthy for the long run.  If desired, we can also educate your loved ones about depression or another mental illness, and let them know what is helpful for you, and even more importantly sometime, what is not.  Often loved ones simply don't know how to best support you, and just hope that you "snap out of it"--though this is most likely the last thing you want to hear.  Of course, you would "snap out of it" if you only could!  But you can, you just need to take the steps, first one is just seeking professional help like you would see someone if you had another problem like a sprained ankle or shortness of breath.
