Depression affects nearly everyone at some point in their life. It can include feelings of pervasive sadness, hopelessness or simply a lack of joy, lasting for months when untreated. My approach involves treating the depression as well its underlying causes to provide immediate relief and long term resolution. A focus on both effective strategies to address depression and changing the relationship to depression itself is offered. From a new vantage point, not only is there a possibility of decreased symptoms of depression, but the potential gifts it brings are realized.
