Talk therapy is an extremely effective treatment for depression. Therapy gives you the tools to treat depression from a variety of angles. What you learn in therapy gives you skills and insight to help prevent depression from coming back. I can teach you practical techniques on how to reframe negative thinking and employ behavioral skills in combating depression. Therapy can also help you work through the root of your depression, helping you understand why you feel a certain way, what your triggers are for depression, and what you can do to stay healthy.

Depression is a medical illness characterized by a sad mood, low energy, feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, and loss of pleasure or motivation. Capital Counseling treats depression using cognitive behavioral counseling and supportive psychotherapy which have been found to be very effective in helping individuals to overcome this debilitating condition. We also use group therapy which is helpful in overcoming the social isolation many people with depression experience. We often work in collaboration with psychiatrists and nurse practitioners who can prescribe anti-depressant medication to support recovery.
