Drawing upon my training in Cognitive Neuroscience, I implement a ground-breaking approach to end symptoms of depression. Unlike other therapy or coaching methods, my approach is grounded in science and is the only technique that quickly and permanently eradicates depressive symptoms.
Through neurogenesis, (the process by which neurons are generated) and neuroplasticity, (the brains natural ability to change) it is possible to carve out a fresh and unworn path for your thoughts to travel upon. This process allows you to reinvent yourself and move away from depressive thinking and overcome the emotional, psychological and physical symptoms depression causes.
Through the application of neural re-wiring, you will learn tangible, measurable steps to greatly minimize your depression. I will teach you how to redirect your brain's focus away from persistent sadness, anxiousness, and hopelessness to a state of happiness and contentment. Guiding you through this highly effective approach, you will learn to control your moods, thoughts and behaviors.
As you learn to see and think differently, your brain will rewire itself, causing your distorted perceptions and beliefs to change, this time Permanently. This knowledge, along with easy to implement techniques, will have you vanquishing the dullness and despondency you’re feeling and replace it with vigor and vitality.
This transformational method will completely alter your emotional landscape and is the framework of what sets my method apart from all others.
Whether you’re barely getting by day to day or you’ve completely shut down from being overwhelmed by the insidious symptoms of depression, I will guide you through a customized plan helping you train your brain to function in a much healthier way.
Depression is not a part of normal life and is not something a person will just "snap out of." Depression interferes with daily activities and normal functioning. It causes significant pain for the person with the disorder and for their family and friends.
It is important to understand that feeling depressed is not simply the result of a ‘chemical imbalance’, for example because you have too much or not enough of a particular brain chemical.
It is quite complex, and there are multiple causes of major depression. Factors such as genetic vulnerability, severe life stressors, substances you may take (some medications, drugs and alcohol) and medical conditions can affect the way your brain regulates your moods.
To date, the only proven method that really treats depression and eradicates its symptoms is the utilization of our brain’s neuroplasticity and the cognitive re-wiring techniques I implement in the way I treat depression.
People with major depression experience symptoms most of the day, every day. Like many mental health conditions, it has little to do with what’s happening around you. You can have a loving family, tons of friends, and a dream job. You can have the kind of life that others envy and still have depression. Even if there’s no obvious reason for your depression, that doesn’t mean it’s not real or that you can simply tough it out.
Clinically known as adjustment disorder with depressed mood, it frequently looks like major depression in many respects. But it’s brought on by specific events or situations, such as: the death of a loved one, a serious illness, divorce, serious financial difficulties or being in a verbally or physically abusive relationship.
Of course, it’s normal to feel sad and anxious during events like these — even to withdraw from others for a bit. But situational depression happens when these feelings start to feel out of proportion with the triggering event and interfere with your daily life.
Although it’s a long-term type of depression, the severity of symptoms can become less intense for months at a time, before worsening again. Some people also have episodes of major depression before or while they have persistent depressive disorder. This is called double depression. Persistent depression lasts for years at a time, so people with this type of depression may start to feel like their symptoms are just part of their normal outlook on life.
Manic depression consists of periods of mania or hypomania, where you feel very happy, alternating with episodes of depression. In severe cases, episodes can include hallucinations and delusions. Hypomania is a less severe form of mania. You can also have mixed episodes in which you have symptoms of both mania and depression.
Seasonal depression, is depression that’s related to certain seasons. For most people, it tends to happen during the winter months. Symptoms often begin in the fall, and continue through the winter. Seasonal depression may get worse as the season progresses and can lead to suicidal thoughts.
Some people with major depression also go through periods of losing touch with reality. This is known as psychosis, which can involve hallucinations and delusions. Experiencing both of these together is known clinically as major depressive disorder with psychotic features. Hallucinations are when you see, hear, smell, taste, or feel things that aren’t really there. A delusion is a closely held belief that’s clearly false or doesn’t make sense. But to someone experiencing psychosis, all of these things are very real and true.
