Sadness. Lack of motivation. Hopelessness. Depression prevents you from having positive relationships and feeling fulfilled in your daily life. Individual therapy provides you the opportunity to uncover the root of your depression, as well as the solutions that will release you from its hold.
As your therapist, I will assess behaviors and physical health for possible areas of improvement. We will also explore thought processes that might be contributing to your depressed mood, including but not limited to: negative self-talk, unproductive core beliefs about yourself and the world, and black-and-white thinking.
Typically, a change in thought process leads to a change in your emotional experience. I will also work with you on identifying, understanding and expressing your emotions in a way that is appropriate, soothing and healthy. Certainly, your ability to express and cope with your feelings contributes to having a satisfying life.
If necessary, we will delve into your personal and family history to gain a greater understanding of your depression and how we might overcome it. As I said, the process may take time, but you can rest assured that I will provide the support and safety you need to get through this difficult time in your life.
