Depression is like cancer. It can eat away at your creativity, pleasure, intimacy, hope, joy, friendships and enjoyment in everyday activities. The temptation to crawl under the blanket and stay there is great, hoping that when you will wake up the nightmare will be over. Sleep or alcohol seem to be great options to forget life for a while. In the moment, coping mechanisms such as these seem the most logical and best solutions. However, reality soon sets in: they are temporary measures that over time actually increase the pain. I help you learn how to live with the pain temporarily so that joy can become a way of life; the norm, rather than a figment of your imagination.
Depression can also sneak up on you when you when you least expect it, born of a lifelong habit and tendency to see life through the lens of tragedy, loss and sadness. You may be able to fool outsiders and even yourself for a time, spending your energy in frenzied activity and irritation in every little thing, in an attempt to suppress the aching sadness that creeps up on you in quiet moments.
Do you long to feel whole, happy and be able to enjoy the simple pleasures of life? To feel free again, to love life?
Sometimes talk therapy isn't enough... sometimes working with energy and the body is needed. One of those methods is the use of energy psychology, a way of accessing those stored memories through muscle testing and clearing them out in a non-invasive, simple manner.
· Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings
· Feelings of hopelessness or pessimism
· Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness
· Irritability, restlessness
· Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable, including sex
· Fatigue and decreased energy
· Difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions
· Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping
· Overeating, or appetite loss
· Thoughts of suicide, suicide attempts
· Aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems that do not ease even with treatment.
You will not believe it or see it now, but you have the resources within you. However, being depressed means you have been drained of the energy you need to be able to access those resources. You need some watering, some light, some nurturing. These can take various forms, including the most common, a combination of talk therapy and medication. I also use energy healing as a modality to access the subconscious memories that contributed to the depression and bring about healing through a non-invasive, simple manner.
