Depression can form for any number of reasons. Laurie is able to work with you to help you understand the origins of your depression, if the causes remain unknown. In cases where the causes are known, she is capable of helping you understand their meaning and create strategies to combat the depression that has resulted from those causes. If your depression is the result of childhood trauma, relationship issues, anger management problems, substance abuse, or other factors, Laurie can help you.
There are times when a person working with Laurie may benefit more from participating in a group therapy setting. If she believes you could benefit from the addition of a group forum, she will check that out with you. Ultimately, though, Laurie will consult with you to identify the best possible therapeutic approach to addressing the causes of your depression.
Confronting your depression can sometimes create fear and anxiety. Many people operate on the belief that they can manage their current lives as they are, and mistakenly believe that dredging up difficult memories or addressing present realities will create too many complications. When you decide not to address a problem like depression, however, it is likely only to get worse.
