    Are you feeling hopeless, isolated and not your usual self?

    Do these thoughts often enter your mind?

    • I am worthless and can’t do anything about it.
    • I feel guilty for just wanting to eat, sleep and be alone.
    • I hate who I am these days.
    • I can’t stop crying, which makes me want to stay away from others.
    • I feel gut-wrenching pain, but no one understands.
    • My life and the world around me are dark. I hate it, but I can’t change it.

    If you are regularly having thoughts like this and don’t feel like your usual self, you may be suffering from depression.

    I want you to know that you are not alone and there are people who can help. Many of my clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that there are many options available to once again have hope for their lives.

    Depression is a lot more common that people realize.  In CBT and ACT therapy, we will work together to set goals together and I will teach you skills to help you feel better.  

    What is CBT therapy for Depression?

    CBT is a well-established type of therapy that has proven to be highly effective in treating depression. It focuses on the  connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

    How Does CBT Work for Depression?    

    • Identifying Negative Thought Patterns: In CBT, we work together to identity the thoughts and thought patterns  that contribute to your feelings of sadness and hopelessness. By recognizing these thoughts, we can start the process of change.    

    • Restructuring Thought Patterns: Once identified, we work together to reframe and turn these negative thought patterns into more balanced and realistic thinking. This shift in thinking can lead to improved mood and emotional well-being.    

    • Behavioral Interventions: Depression often leads to being less active, less socializating, and stopping activities you used to enjoy. CBT helps you set achievable goals and use strategies to re-engage in life and regain a sense of purpose.    

    • Building Coping Skills: Developing effective coping skills is essential. We’ll work on enhancing your ability to manage stress, solve problems, and effectively handle challenging situations.    

    • Tracking Progress: Throughout our work together, we’ll regularly check in on your progress and adjustment the treatment plan, so we can make sure together that you are on the path to feeling better.
