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.

What is Depression? Symptoms of depression can range from feeling sad at times to inability to complete your everyday tasks, social isolation and suicidal ideation. Depression onset is marked by changes in mood, behaviors, sleep patterns and change in appetite. I can help you explore what is causing your feelings of depression. Is this is a sudden occurance? Situational depression occurs due to an event such as illness, losses in our lives or it can have an organic cause requiring medical attention.

I use cognitive behavioral approaches to depression which have been demonstrated by research. Cognitive therapy techniques involve learning to identify automatic throughts which produce or reinforce depression so as to learn how to alter these thoughts before they become overwhelmning. Behavioral approaches involve mobiizing oneself and developing constuctive and affirmative behaivoal patterns as opposed to such behaivors as withdrawal and apathy which contribnute to depression. With my approach, I select interventiosn which make sense to the patient so the patient feels confience that they can succeed.

Depression is often a very debilitating condition that many people live with. It keeps us from living the vital, healthy, whole lives we are meant to live. Coming to understand the underlying causes of depression (often associated with anxiety) is a important part of my work. Approaching the depressed client with compassion,promoting healing and resolution, we can move through the pain and disempowerment to a re-emergence of life and energy.
