Bekah Larson, LPC, MAC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Depression is often the symptom of a story unprocessed, a chemical imbalance, or extremely pent up anger. If your story is about staying invisible your whole life, perhaps being invisible isn’t working for you any longer and depression has covered you in a dark cloud as you try to be seen. Or perhaps you have an untold story about that one moment in middle school when the bully found you alone in the bathroom. What did you believe about yourself afterward? How did it affect your shame? Depression can also be a chemical imbalance and might require medication for a season. Perhaps even being on the medication is a source of pain and it would be nice to couple medication with counseling.

Perry Dodge, MS, MA, LPC, CPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Depression is one of the most common, least understood, and least treated difficulties facing individuals and families today. Sometimes it can seem like a dark cloud simply won’t leave us alone, and we’re waiting for the sun to come burn it away. Effective treatment for depression addresses both external factors--like a person’s environment--and internal factors--such as thought and behavior patterns. I enjoy helping my clients regain their zest for living and once again enjoy being with family and friends and living out their God-given purpose.

Living with depression hurts ... just getting from one day to the next feels like an effort. You may experience chronic sadness, irritability, and depression can be coupled with anxiety. Research shows that a combination of medication and talk therapy is most effective for treating depression. I can help you learn simple techniques to feel better immediately, such as changing irrational and unreasonable thoughts. I can also suggest non-drug therapies as appropriate. Finally, some depression is related to one's situation, so just changing some things in your life can make a BIG difference!! You don't have to live this way - you CAN feel better!!

Kelly Diller, LPC, MA

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Hazelwood, MO

I believe in the importance of providing an integrated approach emphasizing positive self-care, a renewed hope in oneself and one's circumstances, , and making effective life choices for promoting positive feelings. Without ignoring physiology of depression, it is essential to understand that depression may stem from issues relating to lower self-worth, non-utilized coping skills, and negative life circumstances.

I incorporate a balanced approach that emphasizes learning cognitive and behavioral skills for improving mood, promoting healthier lifestyle and decision-making, increasing goal oriented activity, and discernment of pharmacological considerations. Instilling hope and helping the individual gain a renewed perspective for pursuing purposefulness in life are keys for improving emotional stability and experiencing greater happiness.

Depression comes in many different shapes, colors and sizes. It is not a one size fits all experience. Depression can be anything from feeling "blue" or sad for an extended period of time to feeling helpless, hopeless or like a burden, to thoughts of suicide. No matter where you might be on the depression spectrum, it can be helpful to seek counseling. My approach in treating depression is to assist you in identifying patterns of thought and behavior that may be contributing to your experience of depression. Identifying negative thought or behavior patterns is helpful in determining which new coping skills would benefit you the most in treating your depression.

Depression Therapist

Danica L. Byler, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Gottman Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Hazelwood, MO

Depression is not a sign of weakness, and many times people wait it out, hoping they can fix things themselves. That would work fine if what you are experiencing is something other than depression. However, when depression occurs, it effects a person's motivation, energy, ability to put things into perspective, and often hurts in a physical way. Danica understands and has helped many people recover from depression by providing support, interventions, and guidance through what can sometimes feel like an impossible journey if you try to do it on your own. Feeling alone in this process is the one thing you can change quickly by contacting Danica.

Depression Therapist

Lori Oge, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Hazelwood, MO

Depression is a very difficult situation to be in and one not so easily fixed by conventional means. My therapy methods look at the individual circumstances of origin and tear each one down slowly while at the same time creating a new vision for my client to replace it with. We discuss alternate approaches and create new skill sets that will stay with them for life.

Depression is a word that is thrown around a lot these days. In therapy, you'll learn the difference between feeling sad and being stuck in a state of depression. You'll be able to recognize the root causes of your depression which often times have to do with unmet expectations or needs, how you view yourself and God, and/or unresolved grief or relational conflict. I look forward to helping you live life to the full!
