Depression

Do you struggle with self-critical thoughts, low self-worth, a constant heaviness, or perhaps sleeping too much or too little? Many people have come to my office wanting to know how to feel less depressed.  I wish there was a magic answer.  Feeling depressed can develop from having upsetting thoughts and feelings and directing them toward yourself. For example, “I’m such an idiot.”  Or, “No one would want to date me.  I’m too (fill in the blank.)”  In long-term psychotherapy, over time you will learn how to freely express your entire range of emotions outwardly instead of inward.  You will also learn more about the history of these messages we tell ourselves that keep us so stuck.  This can provide some much-needed relief, though it does take time.  Contact me to schedule an appointment.
