Dr. Jemail's approach to depression begins with a through assessment of its history-family roots, biological predispositions, patterns, medical and endocronological needs, experience of attachment, loss, and response to stress or change. Depression has medical, psychological, social and spiritual dimensions. To address depression sometimes therapy has to explore how changes of life style impact the patient and their quality of life. There are degrees of depression and it is important to determine where this fits in the developmental life of the depressed person. Recent research suggests that approaching depression from a medical model is not enough, a multidimensional approach is best.

Many things can cause depression so Susan assesses carefully to discover contributing factors. Susan provides support and guidance to help you find your own customized treatment approach. Maybe you've never processed a legacy of hurt or painful circumstances from the past and need to understand, grieve, and let go of what happened. Maybe you need encouragement to change patterns, habits, or choices that are no longer working for you. Susan is supportive of your choices regarding pharmaceuticals, herbs, amino acids, or nutraceuticals that support neurotransmitter balance in the brain. Susan also utilizes E.M.D.R. and N.E.T. when appropriate, as these techniques can bring fast relief.
