If you have a pulse and a heart, you have been sad. Using the science of happiness rather than standard interventions for depression we focus on increasing positive emotion, engagement, and meaning rather than directly targeting depressive symptoms. In using these interventions with clients I have noted the effects of these interventions in a variety of settings. In informal and clinical settings these interventions have commonly been reported to me and referred to as “life-changing.”

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.

Depression is a feeling that can feel incredibly heavy to hold. Sometimes we experience challenging life events that leave us feeling much sadness, grief, inner pain and lack of joy, which interfere with our daily functioning. That is called depression. With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (challenging unhelpful thoughts) and psychodynamic modalities, I can help you work through that sadness, heaviness and pain, so that you may begin the journey of healing work. This is the first step towards holding the sadness, addressing yourself in a safe space so we can slowly help you process and shift to start feeling lighter and start seeing the sunshine and tasting the small joys in everyday life.

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.

The number one priority I have when working with clients who are depressed is to help them see that they can learn how to cope with and manage paralyzing thoughts and feelings that hold them back in life. My clients and I work together to develop and implement several strategies to replace the negative, irrational and unrealistic thoughts they have with positive, rational and realistic ones. I also work with clients on exploring and understanding the underlying issues that may be contributing to their current feelings and problems. Through this process, clients stop repeating self defeating and self sabotaging behaviors to pursue and achieve their life goals.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

158 Montague St, Brooklyn, New York 11201

People suffer depression for many reasons. But no matter what, depression can feel paralyzing. You may feel overwhelmed with sadness or numbness. Everything can feel pointless, tiring and just plain bad. Depression can relate to an event in your life or it can feel unexplainable. The trickiest part is that we often blame ourselves for how bad we fell and this just makes it worse. Therapy for depression helps you develop compassion for yourself and out of this compassion, it becomes easier to work toward feeling better. Together we will find which techniques work best to give your relief. I use techniques that help you change your habits and thoughts.

Depression is painful, it can disrupt many areas of your life-- from personal relationships, work, organization and cleanliness, your sleep, appetite, and sex life. It can even make someone not want to go on. It is one of the most common problems I treat. Despite how common and painful it can be, there is good news. There are a number of highly effective treatments for depression supported by science. I utilize Cognitive Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Behavioral Activation, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and when appropriate some skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I also incorporate physical exercise and meditation when appropriate.

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....

Depression is a life challenge that is shared by many of us and treated in a variety of ways. Letting go of self blame and regret may be your need. Examining past history and increasing or altering perspective about how this affects your self worth may bring relief. Addressing present thought patterns and how they relate to mood and behavior is practical and beneficial. But, receiving consistent support by a trained, compassionate and dedicated professional who will remain by your side through attempts to change may be the most important and positive step toward relieving depression and that is what I bring to our sessions.

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.

Franklin Square, New York 11010

Not all 'depression' looks the same. For some people, it can be feeling endlessly tired despite sleeping too much, a change in weight, and a seemingly viscous cycle of negative thoughts that trigger a low sense of self esteem and self worth. For others, it can be a heaviness or sense of sadness that lasts most of the time and involves a loss of interest in the things that once brought you joy. My approach to treating depression relies heavily on the scientifically supported methods of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that can help you learn new skills to develop healthier ways to think that promote feeling better and decrease the frequency and intensity of the depression.

Grey Matters International, Inc. and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D. handles depression and other emotional disorders in a very unique way. Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression. Though this can be helpful, it rarely fixes the core problem behind it and for tough cases we then refer them usually to a psychiatrist for medication which can have tons of side effects. Instead, why not try a natural and arguably more effective way to not just change your mind, but change the brain--where the depression is rooted. Contact us at

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.

My goal with clients who suffer from depression is to get you up and going again so you can enjoy your life more, and experience greater meaning and satisfaction. Depression can make a person feel exhausted and gloomy, and it tends to make people think things will never get better. But depression is one of the most treatable emotional disorders.

Depression can make it hard to engage with your loved ones, focus on your work, get out of bed, and even enjoy the things you used to. And it's even more frustrating when it's out of your control and perhaps for reasons you're unaware of.

Depression is often the illness hiding in plain sight. It’s difficult to get help as depression has the ability to drain you of your will and sense of agency. I work with people suffering with moderate to severe depression. My approach is to find out what is happening now in your life that is causing you distress, your response to it, and also recognize any repetitions of events, relationships or behaviors which may be pulling you down. I work both short and long term. Symptom relief is the immediate goal, whereas a longer-term goal may be to identify any underlying issues triggering the depression.

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

19 West 34th St., Penthouse, New York, New York 10001

I will determine the severity of depression and the need for medication. We will figure out if depression is an acute response to a crisis or situation. We will look at the causes, your experience of depression, what are triggers for depression, and ways to cope with it and give you better control of it. If it is a recurrent depression we will find ways for you to cope, and develop good support networks if you don't have them.

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.

330 west 58th street - suite 601, new york, New York 10019

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

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.

I use research-based, Cognitive-Behavioral techniques to identify and change patterns in thinking and behavior to improve mood. Symptoms specific to each patient will be targeted to maximize therapeutic benefit. These include low mood, disturbance in sleep or appetite, social withdrawal, and irritability. In addition, I address co-occurring struggles with self-esteem, relationships, and stress management. If appropriate, multiple modalities of treatment will be used or recommended.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

210 West 70th St., Suite 201, New York, New York 10023

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.

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.

Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

1841 Broadway, Suite 700, New York City, New York 10023

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.

Whether your feelings of sadness are because of a recent event, or you have experienced them for a longer period of time, therapy can provide you with a safe place to gain strategies and understanding as to how best to address them. I am very comfortable working with individuals who may wish to consider adjuctive forms of support (medication, meditation, yoga etc.) as a means of potentially enhancing their progress in our work. Together we can engage in the work of helping you find greater meaning, satisfaction and connection to your daily life.

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.

Depression is certainly on the rise as people cope with the many stressors they face in everyday life.
