Are you struggling with depression? Feel weighed down by persistent sadness, loss of interest, or hopelessness? You don't have to face it alone. As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I specialize in helping working professionals in high-stress jobs, including those in the tech industry, overcome depression.
Contrary to popular belief, depression is not solely caused by a chemical imbalance. While neurochemical factors can play a role, it's crucial to acknowledge that depression often arises from an area in your life where you feel hopeless or overwhelmed. There may be an imbalance in your personal, professional, or social environment that is contributing to your feelings of despair.
Traditional explanations for depression tend to focus on internal factors such as genetics, brain chemistry, and thought patterns. These factors, while relevant, can overlook the impact of your external circumstances and the situations you face daily. In many cases, it is a combination of internal and external factors that contribute to depression.
For example, working professionals, especially those in high-stress industries like tech, may be experiencing depression due to a demanding work environment, an imbalanced work-life balance, or a lack of support in navigating career challenges. Recognizing these situational factors is essential to understanding the full picture of your depression and identifying the most effective solutions.
My approach goes beyond the traditional methods of cognitive behavioral therapy and medication. If medication is your choice, I collaborate with a nurse practitioner to ensure a holistic approach. Recognizing that depression can be influenced by your environment and situations, I utilize situational therapy to address the root causes and provide practical solutions.
As someone who understands the challenges of depression, I offer a compassionate, non-judgmental space where we work together to develop coping strategies, build resilience, and rediscover joy in your life.

If you'd like to use your insurance, please note that you'll need to pay upfront and submit your own claims. I'll be happy to assist you in the submission process.
