Depression Therapist

Dustin Kahoud, Psy.D., CASAC

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

10 Grace Ave. Suite 7, Great Neck, NY

I treat depression in adults, adolescents and children using an integrative approach that combines psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral therapies, tailoring treatment to each unique individual. Depression, even the most severe cases, is a highly treatable disorder. As with many illnesses, the earlier that treatment can begin, the more effective it is and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented. Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence.

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

Home visits, Nassau County, NY

Often depression is held in place by thoughts and beliefs that suck the hope out of one's life. Therapy is effective in finding the source of the problem and providing tools for intercepting and changing the problematic thought patterns. Medication may or may not be needed to get the process started. When one gains the ability to envision a rewarding life, it often ends the cycle of depression.

Phyllis Gildston, PhD, LMFT, LMHC, LSLP

Marriage & Family Therapist; Mental Health Counselor; SLP

275 Middle Neck Road, Suite B-6, Great Neck, NY

Sometimes it seems as if we carry the world on our shoulders. We feel disconnected, lonely, profoundly sad. Even if some of us have been using medications to lighten the burden, they don’t seem to work that well, or have lost their initial effect of relief. It’s hard to believe but there are ways to crawl, climb, or even jump out of the pit of sorrow. Over 25 years as a mental health counselor with two PhDs and extensive training, I have been able to offer many individuals just like you different ways of modifying and even leavening their depression. It’s a challenge for both of us but I’m willing to take it on if you are.

Clinical and Board Certified Family Psychologist

35 Bonnie Heights Road, Manhasset, NY

Depression is anger turned inward or against yourself. As anger builds within, an individual has three choices: To channel the anger energy assertively by expressing the feelings attached to the situations causing one to feel depressed; to express the anger through outbursts that can be very destructive to the self and others; to internalize the anger and become more depressed and less functional with time. My job is to enable you to learn how to identify and express feelings that are causing you to feel depressed. The next step is to change behaviors associated with your feelings freeing you from depressive thoughts and feelings.

Depression Therapist

Kristin Schaefer Schiumo, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

117 Cove Drive, Manhasset , NY

In sessions, we will explore the ways in which your symptoms are affected by your relationships, including family and friends. You are given the opportunity to focus on the meaningful relationships in your life and how they may be contributing to your symptoms of depression. As these relationships are developed or improved, inter-personal connection is strengthened. This sense of support or emotional connection proves critical in alleviating depression. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is used to target negative thoughts, emotions, and actions that contribute to your depression. You will learn modulated, positive, and effective emotional responses to whatever life brings your way.

Depression Therapist

John Kukor, Ed.D.

Psychotherapist

26 Aberdeen Road, New Hyde Park, NY

My goal with clients who suffer from depression is to get you up and going again so you can enjoy your life more, and experience greater meaning and satisfaction. Depression can make a person feel exhausted and gloomy, and it tends to make people think things will never get better. But depression is one of the most treatable emotional disorders. I am committed to supporting my depressed patients to become "formerly depressed," and to have some energy again, to have something to look forward to, to feel like life is meaningful again.
