Jay Jemail, Ph.D.

Dr. Jemail's approach to depression begins with a through assessment of its history-family roots, biological predispositions, patterns, medical and endocronological needs, experience of attachment, loss, and response to stress or change. Depression has medical, psychological, social and spiritual dimensions. To address depression sometimes therapy has to explore how changes of life style impact the patient and their quality of life. There are degrees of depression and it is important to determine where this fits in the developmental life of the depressed person. Recent research suggests that approaching depression from a medical model is not enough, a multidimensional approach is best.

Building skills to manage the symptoms of depression has been proven to work for many people. We will work together to identify and analyze specific aspects of your life that may be causing you to be depressed. Once these areas are identified, we work together to build coping skills to manage your symptoms. Most of the time, we have these skills with in ourselves, and we simply need a skilled therapist to point them out and help activate them.

I will work closely with your Psychiatrist, and if you don't have one, I will find one for you, so that if necessary we can apply therapy in conjunction of medication.

Licensed Profesional Counselor

As a group therapist, I help clients suffering from depression to share their pain and internal dialogues which keep people feeling isolated and hopeless, with the team / group model depressed clients break out of their own internal trap of sadness, desperation as they share and work as part of a team with others who are caring for them. We help people get out of their head and into the world and for folks suffering from depression getting out of their heads is critical for moving forward and getting unstuck.

Depression can mean very different things for different people. My goal as a therapist is to help you understand the unique underlying cause(s) of your depression so that you can make lasting changes. I will use a combination of insight oriented, psycho-dynamic tools to help understand why your depression is occurring along with more interactive tools such as mindfulness and mind/body connection to support immediate relief from depressive symptoms.
Walter Matweychuk, Ph.D.

My approach attacks depression by quickly focusing in on the primary cause of depression. I show people how their current beliefs about their adversities, past and present, are the primary cause of depression. I teach people how it is well within their power to adopt, without delay, alternative beliefs that help them cope with and prevail over these adversities. I also show my patient how to feel worthwhile and adequate even if she is depressed and performing poorly in life. Often self-downing goes with feelings of depression and makes for depression over being depressed. REBT tackles the rut of depression by attacking both the original and the secondary feelings of depression.
