Depression can present as a low grade depression "I never really feel light hearted and happy' or as a Severe Depression that can be agonizing and debilitating 'I don't know how to ever get out of this dark hole'. Depression attacks the Sense of Self. Most often it is early life experiences that contribute to a person's vulnerability to depression. I like to work with EMDR, a trauma treatment method that helps the brain to process painful experiences from the Past and integrate those experiences into a healthier Here and Now. EMDR can support the person to leave the depressed state of Helplessness and supports the person to build Strengths and 'to come out of the shell' into a stronger Self.

No matter how long you have been suffering from depression, you can free yourself mind, body and spirit. When you identify the negative self-talk that gets you down and consistently challenge that self-talk, ultimately replacing it with positive self-talk, you feel better about yourself and your life. When you get out and begin doing things that give you pleasure, your mood improves When you connect with the unconditional love and healing power of your own inner knowing, you transform old patterns and create a life of greater peace and contentment.

Over my thirty years of practice I’ve seen hundreds of depressed children, teenagers, and young adults. In some kids it shows up as sadness, in others as a chronic irritability or anger. Some kids just sleep a lot, or lose themselves in video games. We can blame technology, social media, the pressure kids feel to get into a “good” college, the disconnect they feel with their parents and other adults, but we can’t deny the fact that many children, teens, and young adults are unhappy. I have a long history of helping these kids work their way out of their depression—sometimes counseling them individually, sometime with their parents—and would welcome the opportunity to help yours.

I have worked with people suffering from severe depression for over 25 years. Depression is an overwhelming experience, but advances in neuroscience offer strategies that can really help people move past the depression and get there lives back. Additionally, working closely with an attuned, empathetic therapist can make all the difference and can offer real hope.

Depression has many different forms & causes. It often involves anger at oneself, guilt and shame. Depression is sometimes related to life events in which one has been hurt, and treatment may center on facing and resolving the effect these experiences have had on you. Many kinds of emotional losses may lead to depression. Relationships with others and feelings about oneself are often painful in depression; these feelings can be worked through and resolved in therapy. Depression can be severe and present for a long time-- often tied to childhood experiences-- before one reaches the point of seeking help.

We all do our best to have an abundance of hope in our lives. Sometimes circumstances, emotional wreckage and frustration prevent our reaching our goals and expectations. By identifying the emotional toll charged by an endless cycle of frustration, a personal plan of growth will be put in place. This approach short-circuits frustration and provides hope now and into tomorrow. Dr. Eljay has 20 years of counseling experience in lessening this burden.

My approach to counseling for depression is psychodynamic. I allow clients to talk freely about their feelings and I listen carefully. If a patient uses defenses to avoid feeling, I will gently point that out so they can experience their feelings rather than avoid. As a psychodynamic therapist I will address defenses so that my client can experience insight and stop suffering.

We are whole people - thoughts, feelings, body, heart, mind, soul. Yet many times when we seek to treat depression, we are treated as a walking symptom list, with "problems" to be defeated or obliterated. Sometimes, depression is our body and mind's way of protecting us - getting us to slow down, to notice, to feel, to grieve. When we seek to obliterate or fight against it, we lose that precious message and we set ourselves up for failure. Therapy should work towards alleviating the symptoms of depression, while also holding and regarding the roots of it with gentle introspection. Together, we will work towards healing in a way that preserves and respects your unique journey.

Depression can distort your view of yourself, your future and the world, leaving you feeling hopeless, guilty or worthless. If you are depressed, you know that it is impossible to "just snap out of it." Research shows that depression disrupts the optimal chemical balance in the brain and changing that is not easy, but therapy is an important part of effective treatment. It is important to recognize ways of thinking or relating to others that hold depression in place; then it is possible to grow in the freedom to think, feel and relate to others differently. These small changes lay the foundation for more growth and healing, and give you the courage to risk new ways of relating.

If you’re struggling with depressive symptoms, therapy is a critical part of relief. The first step is being heard & then assessed. Is this a new experience or a familiar one? Has it been triggered by a specific situation? The next, is identifying & replacing negative coping strategies & thoughts with positive alternatives. In addition to identify negative thought patterns, it’s vital to understand where these beliefs came from & work to reframe unhealthy views of the self & others. Know that I’m not someone who immediately suggests medication to everyone. A certain level of discomfort prompts us to change. However, when medication is needed, I'll work closely with your PCP or psychiatrist.

We are social beings. If our interactions with others are difficult or conflicted, depression can result. We may feel hopeless, isolated, sad, irritated, even worthless. In a safe, empathetic environment, I help clients to identify relationship patterns which fuel their depressive symptoms, and to change problematic ways of relating to others as well as to themselves. When our relationships are going well, we feel better about ourselves, we engage in activities, we increase our mood. We enjoy living!
