My approach to the treatment of depression is step-wise. I like to diagnose the nature of depression, determine the need for medication, use of supportive, empathic, an cognitive behavioral techniques. I also like to get other family members involved in the treatment process. Strengthening of the coping skills is one of many methods which I like to use.

There’s a difference between being sad and being depressed. While people who feel depressed often do feel sad, but depression often also saps away one’s strength, one’s energy and can even takes away a person’s passion for something they used to love. Seeking treatment for depression is not a sign of weakness, but of strength. Strength in desiring to become one’s self again. Therapy focuses on just that, helping client learn how to cope with depression so that no longer does the client feel like a slave to depressions vicious cycle, and can return to leading a productive and fulfilling lifestyle.

Depression shows itself in many ways. From sleep troubles, inability to concentrate, loss of joy in your life, eating problems (too much, too little), inability to concentrate and when severe, suicidal thoughts and feelings. I work with several physicians to provide anti-depressant medications if needed. We also work together to change the helpless/hopeless thoughts and feelings and forge new, positive outlooks.
