At the beginning of treatment, I work to stabilize someone experiencing depression or depressed mood. We discuss the benefits of a daily routine, scheduling pleasant activities, social support, nutrition, exercise, overall wellness & spirituality. We then move into work understanding the history of the depression & potential causes, as well as triggers of the depressed mood. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which has been researched & is an evidence based treatment for depression. This therapy teaches you how to become aware of your thoughts & the way they impact your mood. It is not difficult to learn & you will see benefits from the tools & techniques we discuss when you apply them!
