Our enriched, multi-modal approach is effective for clients who consult us regarding depression and mood-modulation issues. Often the combination of cognitive-behavioral, supportive and psychodynamic-ego-enhancing approaches help moderately depressed clients within a relatively short time--usually within a few months. Our approachability, empathic listening skills and pragmatic conflict-resolution expertise are most useful for clients suffering from the debilitating effects of depression. We also stress a holistic approaches that integrate medical and nutritional needs, as well as incorporating stress reduction, physical exercise and meditation work. Our clients often benefit greatly.

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.”

I have a multifacted approach to depression. If need be, I help you understand why you are depressed and how to change. I offer hypnosis and EMDR and meditation which all can transform the brain so that centers for depression become smaller and areas of well-being increase. I use behavioral approaches, encouraging physical activity, contact with nature, re-thinking negative thought processes. If you wish, I can help you connect with a spiritual side of yourself to put depression in perspective. And, if needed, I will recommend medication.

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.

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.

Join us and learn how to develop effective skills against depression.

Helping you find wholeness...
124 East 40th Street, Ste 404, New York, New York 10016
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.
