Robert Salinger, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

385 South Eagle, Terryville, Connecticut 06786

Lack of pleasure, emotional deadness, lack of energy, withdrawal from those people and activities that we have valued, and a constant stream of negative thoughts about life are part of what depression does to us. Stress in relationships at home and work and early trauma can create depression. A caring relationship with an experienced and genuine other offers the way out of depression. This is what I provide for you.

The normal ups and downs of life mean that everyone feels sad or has "the blues" from time to time. Depression is different from normal sadness in that it engulfs your day-to-day life, interfering with your ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and have fun. The feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and worthlessness are intense and unrelenting, with little, if any, relief. I have found in treating clients with depression that a multi-pronged approach is most effective and includes a combination of social support, lifestyle changes and emotional skills building learned within the therapeutic relationship.

I feel that depression effects all of us at one time or another, however, my approach is simple and that is to focus your negative thoughts into positive thoughts. Much of the time, depression can be reversed through cognitive restating statements or "reframes." For example, " I get the summer blues because summer is over and there isn't anything to look forward too." A reframe would be, " summer is over, however, I am looking forward to the fall and beautiful colors of the leaves."

Do negative thoughts or memories trigger waves of sadness? Has talk therapy or medication failed to get to the core? Does your depression keep coming back? First you need to know that you are not alone, many people secretly struggle with depression for years or decades. Many only get partial relief from medication and traditional 45-minutes-once-a-week talk therapy for depression. Thankfully, there is an alternative. I use 3-hour sessions to help you achieve up to 3 months of therapy in each session, focused on getting to the root & the core with an ACHIEVEMENT CENTERED approach that is more like a coach that gets you to run one more lap than you thought that you could.

420 Quaker Farms Rd., Oxford, Connecticut 06478

I believe that depression is anger turned inward. I would use psycotherapy to delve into the reasons for the anger. Where did it originate and discuss methods to use on a daily basis to resolve this anger through a spiritual life and gratitudes. I would also take a family history and have the patient get a medical exam to identify the possiblity of it being a genetic disorder or physical malady. Concurring with the medical doctor or naturopath I would discuss methods to use through diet and exercise, meditation and social outlets to deal on a daily basis with the depression.

My therapy approach is well suited to help you recover from your depression, because all emotions begin with our thoughts. I will guide you to exprience your own insights about the nature of thought and how your thinking contributes to your experience of frustration which ultimately leads to sadness and a depressed state of mind. I also provide a variety of resources for you so that you feel supported while you go through the process.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

North Salem, New York 10560

I have great respect for people who are struggling in their life with an overall lack of satisfaction and motivation. I will help you identify those “triggers” that cause your low mood, and to develop coping skills to help you feel better. My clients report that they are able to sense and identify mood fluctuations as a result of our counseling sessions. Clients that are on medication can expect a team approach to their wellness, as I consult with physicians. If you are reading this right now, you or someone you care about is struggling with the ability to sustain important relationships. If so, you can call or email me to determine if counseling is right for you.

Depression is generally considered a reaction to physical or psychological stress, and any number of stressors can lead to depressive symptoms. These can include personality, environmental, or biomedical factors, i.e. chemical imbalances in the brain, trauma, and/or situational factors. Sometimes illness or certain drugs (including alcohol, prescribed medications, etc.) as well as improper diet and nutrition contribute to depression. Treatment includes identifying and understanding the underpinnings and circumstances of your depression (insight), learning helpful coping skills, and getting extra support so you can feel better and recover.

Stephanie Hein, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Psychotherapist

755 Main Street Bld#2, Ste 1, Monroe, Connecticut 06468

My approach to depression depends on what is causing the depression. I have found that it can be a chemical imbalance, situational, or something else. Also if there is a history of depression in the family it may contribute to what approach I take toward working with that person. The end result is the same though = depression. Hearing their story and what they are experiencing is the first place to start in their journey to healing. Depression doesn't have to rule your life; it's finding what works best for you.
