Do you feel like you’re wearing a mask to hide your depression?

psychotherapy for depression in berkeley


Managing your life feels like such a struggle. You are overwhelmed and can't stop crying. Even the thought of getting out of bed feels like such a challenge. You feel like you have no control over the negative thoughts, the shame, and the guilt you experience.  

Life can feel unbearable when you’re in extreme mental and emotional pain and I want you to know you don't have to do this alone.  Your life can get better and therapy can help.   

somatic psychotherapy can help with depression

I work with clients who are looking to move through times of sadness and feelings of depression.  Somatic psychotherapy can help by uncovering the roots of how your depression started and how depression affects your body.  You see, depression is not only a feeling state.  It also gets expressed in your body, which includes your thought patterns and the specific habits you have when you are feeling down.

With the support of a somatic psychotherapist, you can begin to explore blocks to your own emotional healing and wellness.  Through this type of exploration and self-study in mindfulness, you can begin to tap into feelings of wholeness and pleasure.  With this new awareness and understanding of both your mind and body you will have more choice and options the next time you are feeling down.
