You don’t have to face your depression alone
With support, you can feel hopeful and happy again
It is normal to feel sad, helpless, regretful, or despair sometimes. If you find it difficult to shake these feelings, however, you may need support to overcome your depression. Depression is marked by negative feelings that become pervasive, persistent, and, at times, overwhelming.
Many of my clients are still functioning at a high level: performing at work, taking care of their families, and engaging socially. And yet, they are haunted by feelings of negativity, sadness, and despair. While they have an awareness that they have a lot going for them, they can’t shake the feeling of depression.
Therapy can help to stabilize your experience so you can enjoy your life again.
If you feel:
- Isolated and alone
- Shut down and empty
- Like overdrinking, overeating, or self-medicating to avoid your feelings
- That no one understands how you feel
- That talking about your depression would be a burden to others
- Worried about your future happiness
Please reach out for support with your depression
It’s time to seek professional help. Therapy can provide you with a safe place to heal, and a guide to help you find your way back to hope.
Therapy can help you feel better about yourself and your life
You can overcome these feelings of depression
I know that you have tried to address your depression in your own way. You’ve probably read self-help books, gone to yoga, tried meditation, and sought words of encouragement from friends and family. And they all agree: You’re a great person. So, why can’t you feel it?
When these coping skills don’t last, you need support to go deeper into the root cause of your depression. Often, when depression gains a foothold, it's because you’ve triggered a belief that you don’t deserve happiness. Satisfaction, which seems to come so easily to others, feels elusive to you.
It doesn’t have to be this way. We can rebuild a foundation of self-love, respect motivation, and confidence.
You have more power than you think
It is possible to overcome depression. I have worked with many patients who have struggled for years with depressive episodes and have begun to worry that they may never overcome them. By moving beyond just coping skills and looking deeply at the root cause of your depression, we will alter your psychological foundation to elevate and sustain a positive sense of self.
Therapy goes beyond what you can do on your own. In an atmosphere of safety and comfort, you will develop an accurate view of yourself as intrinsically valuable. By going beyond your thoughts and deeper into your feelings, we help you accept and appreciate your full self.
We are on a journey to overcome your distorted view and to find out who you really, truly are.
You are worthy of support
When you are depressed, you are operating from a distorted view of yourself. You may become gripped by our own disappointment, thinking you are not enough. You may become consumed with worry about what others think. You may operate from the false belief that you are less than you actually are.
After more than 20 years of offering therapy to patients just like you, here’s what I know for sure: Whatever your talents, history, and limits (we all have them), you are a wholly worthwhile person. We will work on removing the roadblocks that your heart and mind have set between you and this truth.
Doing so will bring you back to into your natural state of loving and appreciating yourself.
"She truly cares about how to make a difference in your life."
"I have been working with Linda for almost a year now and I'm so happy to have found her. I have worked with a few therapists in the past, some smart, others unhelpful, and Linda is by far the most intelligent and invested person I have come across.
She truly cares about how to make a difference in your life. For any situation you are approaching her about, she is by your side every step of the way. She is genuine and caring, but also smart and understands things that most people do not. Truly a blessing to be able to work with her."
