Depression Therapy

Depression, like anxiety, is a mental-health disorder often attributed to “negative thinking patterns.”
But I see it differently than being simply a thinking, or intellectual, problem.
I understand depression as unconscious, automatic, and unintentional. I see it as a response to being hurt by someone and marked by a cluster of self-sabotaging defense mechanisms, including self-attack, hopelessness, and helplessness. If these defenses are no longer working for you, give us a chance to work together.
Together we can interrupt the cycle.
