The symptoms of depression vary from person to person, but often include feeling miserable without a clear reason why, anxiety, agitation, insomnia or sleeping too much, hopelessness, changes in eating, and/or foggy thinking. I frequently use a combination of interpersonal therapy, CBT, guided imagery, narrative therapy and build up natural supports to address depressive symptoms, leaving you with an array of techniques to help you cope w/ depression, improve your mood, & outlook on life.
I have worked with Trauma/PTSD and often related concerns (relationship concerns, experiences of oppression and abuse) throughout my career. Disturbing life events are things we often carry with us and need to be addressed to improve our present level of functioning. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy which is an extensively, researched psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps people learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior and emotions. Cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on changing the automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to and worsen emotional difficulties, depression, and anxiety. These spontaneous negative thoughts have a detrimental influence on mood.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) refers to an interactive psychotherapy technique used to relieve psychological stress. According to the theory behind the approach, traumatic and painful memories can cause post-traumatic stress when you don't process them completely. EMDR utilizes the natural healing ability of your body.
Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a short-term goal-focused evidence-based therapeutic approach, which incorporates positive psychology principles and practices, and which helps clients change by constructing solutions rather than focusing on problems.
