It’s natural and quite common to feel sad sometimes, but depression, (or Major Depressive Disorder), refers to persistent depressed feelings, lasting longer than two weeks. Primary symptoms of depression may include: hopelessness, irritability, trouble sleeping, weight loss or gain, loss if interest in things you used to enjoy, difficulty concentrating or remembering things and thoughts of death or suicide/suicide attempts. Several types of psychotherapies exist for treating depression. Finding a therapist is a great first step in finding ways to help treat and alleviate symptoms of depression.

Often times depression and anxiety go hand in hand. Like anxiety, depression can stem from not truly understanding what one is feeling. When we push down our emotions and do not allow ourselves to feel, or sometimes the opposite happens when we allow our feelings to take over, we can experience depression. Working together to discover where the depression is stemming from can work towards healing.

Ryan Ramsey

I have experience working with those with major and persistent depressive disorders. Sometimes depression is tied to life events and experiences and sometimes it seems to come from nowhere. I meet clients wherever they are in their experience of depression and walk with them on their journey through the darkness.

Erica Johnson

Individual Therapy

The overwhelming feelings of sadness, loneliness, hopeless, and lack of motivation to name a few, can keep us in a downward spiral that seems never-ending. By taking a mindfulness approach to therapy, I help individuals discover what might be holding them back from reaching their potential and causing their depression so they can begin living the life they want to live.

Laura Brassie

Allie Evans

Adolescent/Teen Therapy, Child Therapy, Couples Therapy, Family Therapy, Individual Therapy

I have worked with clients who have major depression, persistent depression, and depression caused by trauma or grief. My approach is not to treat the symptoms but to understand the root of your depression. I work from a mind-body connection approach and believe that you can't fix the symptoms until you lean into what your body is trying to tell you. Once the healing begins, symptoms may lessen.

Eric Blommel

Couples Therapy, Family Therapy, Group Therapy, Individual Therapy

Once your physician rules out purely biological causes for depression, it may be worthwhile to dive into your past to see what things may have happened to lock you into this emotional state. Paradoxical as it may sound, depressive symptoms can be adaptive to certain awful circumstances. Even if no details are remembered, our bodies hold the key to relieving our suffering.

Scott Olds

Couples Therapy, Individual Therapy, Family Therapy

Depression is a typical response to lifes changes that can adversely impact your health, relationships, and career. Feelings of anger and frustration can result from not getting the support you need from friends and relatives.

Chloe Koeffler

I have worked with folks coping with depression throughout my 8 years of training and in private practice. I utilize interventions with significant scientific backing including behavioral activation, DBT, ACT, CBT, and Motivational Interviewing. Once clients start to experience relief, we often work to identify values and build a life that feels fulfilling and purposeful.

Christina Aegerter

Adolescent/Teen Therapy, Individual Therapy

I often tell my clients that I do not have a magic wand, and I cannot promise your pain will go away (because, hey, guess what- pain means you are human!), but I can promise that you will learn to live with your pain in a new way and stop putting your life on hold.

Davis Falcon

Individual Therapy

I've worked with countless individuals experiencing depression and have seen success in most cases. I've found that it is important to re-establish a connection with yourself and rekindle your inner fire through processing and working through what made it go out in the first place. Once it is lit again, it is just a matter of time before there is a return of passion and involvement in life.

Allison Johandon

Individual Therapy

Sometimes life just gets the best of us and with it comes a lack of motivation, tearfulness, brain fog and other symptoms of depression. When depression sets in, pulling yourself up by your bootstrap becomes impossible. However, working with someone to establish skills and understanding can give you your life back. We will work together to re-establish happiness and comfort.

Sarah Freeze

The part of you that is feeling down and depressed can take over and sometimes it feels like the sadness will never end. Therapy looks different between each individual I work with. It can be easy to focus on the problems, but with my help we will be solution-focused, facilitating growth and progress.

Angela Dotzenrod

Adolescent/Teen Therapy, Couples Therapy, Family Therapy, Individual Therapy

Depression tends to be related either to a struggle with self-worth, or a general lack of purpose and meaning in life. It is far more common than people might think, and luckily very treatable as well. Angie works with clients to reacquaint themselves with their most inherent values and strengths, and re-story their lives in ways that add purpose and meaning to their past, present, and future.

Tom Devine

Individual Therapy, Adolescent/Teen Therapy, Couples Therapy

CBT can be very helpful in terms of acquiring an understanding of the relationship between patterns in our thinking and the occurrence of depression. It can help with the development of tried and true coping skills that we can use throughout life..
