Anxious?    Depressed?

Depression Counseling in Portland OR

Are you struggling with feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, sadness? 


A number of factors contribute to feeling depressed: unresolved feelings of anger, grief, loss, abandonment, family of origin influences, PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and/or health issues are just a few. 


I usually work with you in an integrated approach which may combine cognitive-behavioral therapy, along with Mindfulness and Guided Imagery.  Your state of health, diet, exercise, and life style are all important factors to consider as well.


Depression often holds a key to significant self-discovery, and it does not have to be a life sentence or a part of your identity!  It has a door which I help you to open.  We enter and appreciate the information and insights it may have for you.  Then you have possibilities and actions that may liberate you from its hold on your quality of life.


I provide support, insight and tools to help you to work through what is keeping you depressed.   Most of us have the power to reduce or eliminate persistent feelings of depression if we can identify the source and change the pattern. If you are ready to open that door, email or call for a free consultation.
