Capital Counseling Your Lifeline to Better Mental Health
650 Warren St, Albany, New York 12208
Depression is a medical illness characterized by a sad mood, low energy, feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, and loss of pleasure or motivation. Capital Counseling treats depression using cognitive behavioral counseling and supportive psychotherapy which have been found to be very effective in helping individuals to overcome this debilitating condition. We also use group therapy which is helpful in overcoming the social isolation many people with depression experience. We often work in collaboration with psychiatrists and nurse practitioners who can prescribe anti-depressant medication to support recovery.

Depression is not a good thing. Our society sees it as a copout and rightly so. Many depressives are 't able to work or play or even love - the three principles of Sigmond Freud, the founder of modern psychology. Furthermore, depression is spiritually wronv It needs to be medically or Biblically remedied before something else goes wrong. The depression easily becomes addiction to moral turpitude so depressives can die! This is a society which believes in happiness. So the depressions severity needs to change.

Depression is anger turned onto the self from underlying feelings of hurt, pain and anger. I like to encourage ego supportive and expressive therapy, because it seems to be the best way of helping to lift the symptoms which can feel as awful as the depression itself. In many situations talking about the “stuff” with a therapist, directly confronts the inner conflict and turmoil that tends to guide and rule a person's life prior to treatment.

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.

Lack of pleasure, emotional deadness, lack of energy, withdrawal from those people and activities that we have valued, and a constant stream of negative thoughts about life are part of what depression does to us. Stress in relationships at home and work and early trauma can create depression. A caring relationship with an experienced and genuine other offers the way out of depression. This is what I provide for you.

I feel that depression effects all of us at one time or another, however, my approach is simple and that is to focus your negative thoughts into positive thoughts. Much of the time, depression can be reversed through cognitive restating statements or "reframes." For example, " I get the summer blues because summer is over and there isn't anything to look forward too." A reframe would be, " summer is over, however, I am looking forward to the fall and beautiful colors of the leaves."

I have great respect for people who are struggling in their life with an overall lack of satisfaction and motivation. I will help you identify those “triggers” that cause your low mood, and to develop coping skills to help you feel better. My clients report that they are able to sense and identify mood fluctuations as a result of our counseling sessions. Clients that are on medication can expect a team approach to their wellness, as I consult with physicians. If you are reading this right now, you or someone you care about is struggling with the ability to sustain important relationships. If so, you can call or email me to determine if counseling is right for you.

Depression is generally considered a reaction to physical or psychological stress, and any number of stressors can lead to depressive symptoms. These can include personality, environmental, or biomedical factors, i.e. chemical imbalances in the brain, trauma, and/or situational factors. Sometimes illness or certain drugs (including alcohol, prescribed medications, etc.) as well as improper diet and nutrition contribute to depression. Treatment includes identifying and understanding the underpinnings and circumstances of your depression (insight), learning helpful coping skills, and getting extra support so you can feel better and recover.

Talk therapy is an extremely effective treatment for depression. Therapy gives you the tools to treat depression from a variety of angles. What you learn in therapy gives you skills and insight to help prevent depression from coming back. I can teach you practical techniques on how to reframe negative thinking and employ behavioral skills in combating depression. Therapy can also help you work through the root of your depression, helping you understand why you feel a certain way, what your triggers are for depression, and what you can do to stay healthy.
