Hal believes that only by facing it head are we able to effectively disarm depression, while increasing self-esteem.

Often depression is held in place by thoughts and beliefs that suck the hope out of one's life. Therapy is effective in finding the source of the problem and providing tools for intercepting and changing the problematic thought patterns. Medication may or may not be needed to get the process started. When one gains the ability to envision a rewarding life, it often ends the cycle of depression.

Sometimes it seems as if we carry the world on our shoulders. We feel disconnected, lonely, profoundly sad. Even if some of us have been using medications to lighten the burden, they don’t seem to work that well, or have lost their initial effect of relief. It’s hard to believe but there are ways to crawl, climb, or even jump out of the pit of sorrow. Over 25 years as a mental health counselor with two PhDs and extensive training, I have been able to offer many individuals just like you different ways of modifying and even leavening their depression. It’s a challenge for both of us but I’m willing to take it on if you are.

I treat depression in adults, adolescents and children using an integrative approach that combines psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral therapies, tailoring treatment to each unique individual. Depression, even the most severe cases, is a highly treatable disorder. As with many illnesses, the earlier that treatment can begin, the more effective it is and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented. Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence.

There is hope if you are unable to enjoy the things that used to give you pleasure or if you have a sense of sadnesss or hopelessness that just won't go away. We all feel sad from time to time, but depression is when this goes on over time and can affect all areas of your life and even lead to you feeling like giving up on life. Together, we can look at what is going on and explore ways (through discussion, actions and possibly involving a physician) to help you back to where you would want to be - where you can experience a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher can help you on that journey.

The benefits of therapy for depression are indisputable, since treatment offers the important opportunity to be deeply understood and affirmed. Depression is one of the most frequently cited reasons for seeking treatment. It's also highly amenable to treatment. In addition to helping you understand what lies behind your depression, we'll establish a good strong working relationship which is an important bulwark against future depression and supports the growing self as it strives toward health.

Depression is anger turned inward or against yourself. As anger builds within, an individual has three choices: To channel the anger energy assertively by expressing the feelings attached to the situations causing one to feel depressed; to express the anger through outbursts that can be very destructive to the self and others; to internalize the anger and become more depressed and less functional with time. My job is to enable you to learn how to identify and express feelings that are causing you to feel depressed. The next step is to change behaviors associated with your feelings freeing you from depressive thoughts and feelings.

In sessions, we will explore the ways in which your symptoms are affected by your relationships, including family and friends. You are given the opportunity to focus on the meaningful relationships in your life and how they may be contributing to your symptoms of depression. As these relationships are developed or improved, inter-personal connection is strengthened. This sense of support or emotional connection proves critical in alleviating depression. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is used to target negative thoughts, emotions, and actions that contribute to your depression. You will learn modulated, positive, and effective emotional responses to whatever life brings your way.

Depression can result in feelings of loss of energy and a loss of interest in life, giving up and shutting down, and intense self-recrimination. It’s not so easy to just snap out of it. The problem is often caused by a sense of hyper-responsibility developed as an effort to care for others. The result is a painful and disabling guilt and blame that makes one want to give up. Interaction with an empathic and supportive therapist can help to interrupt this downward cycle by questioning the self-attack, and understanding what demands you have put on yourself that you need to let go of. My approach is designed to understand the cause of the situation without leaving you stuck in the past, and underst....
