Vicki Asher Wills, PsyD, LCSW

Depression counseling involves assessing and making appropriate changes in the physical, emotional, and relational aspects of a client's life that are contributing to depressed mood. I work with clients to both remedy the underlying causes and their resulting cognitions, and the lifestyle habits that hinder their recovery. Often it is appropriate to work in conjunction with medical professionals who may suggest medications and/or nutritional supplements to correct the biochemical aspects of depressive episodes. Clients benefit most when their treatment is comprehensive and avoids dealing solely with symptom relief.

Are you feeling a loss of hope or less interest in the things that used to bring you pleasure? While we all get low, persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” feelings may be indicators of depression. When you are experiencing feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness that aren’t going away, it’s time to get help. Often when people are experiencing these emotions they feel isolated and that life will always be this way I treat people who are experiencing these feelings and help them to address the causes and symptoms associated with their depression, so that they can enjoy life again.

Depression can feel overwhelming and keep us from being the person that we want and know we can be. Many times it can be an indicator of difficult and painful relationships or situations in our life. It's important to explore the causes and/or triggers for our depression, and see how the slide into a depressive state has occurred. Rather than feeling stuck, we can start to explore your sadness or lack of motivation and start to rebuild the parts of you that are able to experience a life of happiness and contentment.
