At the Lukin Center, take an individual approach to depression by tailoring evidence-based treatments to each person's specific needs. We use cognitive behavioral techniques to help clients meet their goals, change their ways of thinking, and ultimately feel better. While our therapists work with all clients, some of them have particular areas of expertise, including working with men and with adolescents with depression. Our therapists are sensitive to the issues most commonly faced by these groups and are able to tailor therapy to best meet their needs.

Sometimes we simply feel stuck in neutral. We can't move into drive and if we don't hold on tightly we so easily can fall back into reverse. Depression takes many forms and sometimes we don't even know that we are engulfed by it. But if you feel that you are so very alone and that no one can understand what you are going through perhaps talking to a Psychotherapist might be a good place to start. Try taking that first step because everyone needs someone to talk to.

I have found that people who experience some form of depression respond quite positively to a solution focused or cognitive behavioral approach. Instead of a consistent focus on what makes you depressed, we explore those times where you feel better and more alive. We put the spotlight on that in order to learn how do experience that state more often. I also coordinate with a psychopharmacologist if medication is indicated as well.

In my biography on Theravive, I describe how I utilize an integrated combination of cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic modalities. That is, I tailor each treatment plan to the needs of the individual. Some patients wish to make connections between past experiences and current depression, and in this case it is appropriate to revisit the past to recognize its psychodynamic influence on current maladaptive behaviors. Other patients take a purely cognitive behavioral position on their experienced depression, wanting to be grounded in the present and move forward with problem-solving techniques and strategies. I also work with two psychiatrists who may prescribe medication where needed.

This is a broad broad category. There are as many things that people call depression, and as many kinds of depressed people, as there are shades of color. The first step is to rule out physical problems – there are several that masquerade as depression – and then to rule out the simple solutions. Any good self-help book or website can give you advice on coping with the inertia that is so problematic in depression. If those are not helping enough, it is time for a careful assessment of your particular brand of what you might be calling depression. It can involve any mixture of anger, resentment, internal pressure, fear, and more. How we handle all that depends on what we find

Dr. Vaughan has successfully worked with patients suffering from depression for fifteen years. Depression can lead to low self-esteem, low energy, reduced concentration and motivation, suicidal thoughts, irrational guilt, and unwanted changes in sleep and appetite. Therapy can reverse these symptoms by addressing behaviors and thoughts that reinforce them. Dr. Vaughan also engages in active problem-solving with patients to help them change life circumstances and aspects of relationships that might perpetuate depression.

Chronic depression can leave one feeling completely hopeless about life. It also depletes the little bit of energy you have, making getting out of bed in the morning a chore. You might find yourself sleeping too much, yet feeling exhausted all the time. When I work with people who exhibit these symptoms, the initial psychotherapy steps include helping the person set goals and begin working toward them while the therapy unfolds and sources of the depression get examined in new ways.

Are you or your child suffering from depression? Are you feeling down or hopeless? Do you feel a lack of motivation or do you not take pleasure in activities that you usually enjoy? Do you feel stuck, unfulfilled or even wonder at times if life is not worth living? Depression is painful and debilitating, but you do not have to face it alone. Speaking with a caring therapist can help you feel better by speaking about your feelings and exploring new ways of understanding yourself and your problems. Ari has many years of experience helping individuals who struggle with depression. He appreciates the importance of "good fit" in the therapy relationship, which allows for change to occur.

I work with many clients facing varying degrees of depression and who are having difficulty coming out of it on their own. I seek to help them better understand what they are feeling and the varying causes and triggers leading to it. I also, work with clients to help them mobilize themselves out of it, working towards their individual goals and developing ways that they can improve their moods.
