Essential Practices for Lasting Freedom from Depression

The true source of healing from depression comes from within—not from medications. Yet when depression drains away your hope, vitality, confidence, and power, how can you find the energy to help yourself?

Advanced clinical research in mind-body psychotherapies promote new and empowering healing approaches for dealing with this misunderstood condition—a way out of the darkness that helps you restore balance, vitality,  and joy to your life.

Proven Techniques for Navigating Your Way Out of Depression

Through 20+ years of research and clinical practice with thousands of patients, I know just how very serious depression can be.

Cutting edge clinical research challenges the common very old medical model of depression as a strictly physical disease that is best treated with pharmaceutical drugs. Instead, clinical science demonstrate the mind-body connection as a wake-up call.

Drawing from proven mind-body treatments that I have used with thousands of patients in clinics and major hospitals, as well as experiences with thousands of patients in my USA and European practices, I utilize a tailor made set of simple and elegant tools for you engaging more deeply with your life and find joy,  instead of suffering in silence and withdrawing into the darkness of depression.

Have you ever notice how withdrawn you become when depressed? For example, suffering in silence, socially withdrawn, isolation, loss of deep interpersonal connection, lack of interest in previously enjoyable activities. What about your body when you are depressed? Ever notice your body’s withdrawn posture, heaviness, contraction, stiffness, aches, and pains? What about your thinking when you are depressed? Ever notice, negative binge thinking, poor self-esteem, loss of confidence, hopelessness, impaired attention, concentration ?

Join me in practical training for the relief of the symptoms of depression. We will use scientifically proven therapeutic modalities of meditation, mindfulness therapies, and cognitive therapies, diet, guided imagery, and mind-body movement.

I also will guide you through psychodynamic therapy in exploring, processing, understanding, and healing through direct insight your unique personality traits, concomitant history, and internal and external environmental circumstances contributing to your depression and often co-occurring stress and anxiety.

Freedom from depression is realistic, hopeful, well-traveled—and filled with unexpected rewards. As I have seen time and again, we can emerge from the darkness of depression with a deeper and profound appreciation of life’s richness and our purpose in the world.

I offer the boldest scientifically validated therapies so you can find true healing from this condition without pharmaceutical medications— You deserve to turn emotional symptoms into teachers, renew your body and mind, self-empower for success in life, and reclaim joy and vitality in your life. You are resilient.

You will heal your mind, body, emotions, and brain from the assault of depression and often co-occurring stress and anxiety. You will heal with the sciences and therapeutic modalities of the following:
  • The science of depression—dispelling common myths about genes, drugs, and the brain.
