Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

In my biography on Theravive, I describe how I utilize an integrated combination of cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic modalities. That is, I tailor each treatment plan to the needs of the individual. Some patients wish to make connections between past experiences and current depression, and in this case it is appropriate to revisit the past to recognize its psychodynamic influence on current maladaptive behaviors. Other patients take a purely cognitive behavioral position on their experienced depression, wanting to be grounded in the present and move forward with problem-solving techniques and strategies. I also work with two psychiatrists who may prescribe medication where needed.

Maggie Vaughan, LMFT, PhD

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist; Psychotherapist

Within Driving Distance of New York City, NY

Dr. Vaughan has successfully worked with patients suffering from depression for fifteen years. Depression can lead to low self-esteem, low energy, reduced concentration and motivation, suicidal thoughts, irrational guilt, and unwanted changes in sleep and appetite. Therapy can reverse these symptoms by addressing behaviors and thoughts that reinforce them. Dr. Vaughan also engages in active problem-solving with patients to help them change life circumstances and aspects of relationships that might perpetuate depression.

Sometimes we simply feel stuck in neutral. We can't move into drive and if we don't hold on tightly we so easily can fall back into reverse. Depression takes many forms and sometimes we don't even know that we are engulfed by it. But if you feel that you are so very alone and that no one can understand what you are going through perhaps talking to a Psychotherapist might be a good place to start. Try taking that first step because everyone needs someone to talk to.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

New York City, NY 10013

Grey Matters International, Inc. and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D. handles depression and other emotional disorders in a very unique way. Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression. Though this can be helpful, it rarely fixes the core problem behind it and for tough cases we then refer them usually to a psychiatrist for medication which can have tons of side effects. Instead, why not try a natural and arguably more effective way to not just change your mind, but change the brain--where the depression is rooted. Contact us at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com.

Helping you find wholeness...

Within Driving Distance of New York City, NY

There is hope if you are unable to enjoy the things that used to give you pleasure or if you have a sense of sadnesss or hopelessness that just won't go away. We all feel sad from time to time, but depression is when this goes on over time and can affect all areas of your life and even lead to you feeling like giving up on life. Together, we can look at what is going on and explore ways (through discussion, actions and possibly involving a physician) to help you back to where you would want to be - where you can experience a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher can help you on that journey.

Chronic depression can leave one feeling completely hopeless about life. It also depletes the little bit of energy you have, making getting out of bed in the morning a chore. You might find yourself sleeping too much, yet feeling exhausted all the time. When I work with people who exhibit these symptoms, the initial psychotherapy steps include helping the person set goals and begin working toward them while the therapy unfolds and sources of the depression get examined in new ways.

Depression can come from feelings of loss and isolation, loneliness and fear of being alone. Depression can also come from feeling just plain lousy about yourself! What we therapist call "low self esteem" which is another way of saying you don't love yourself very much. Something we all need to do and feel. Getting at the roots of your depression thorough various therapeutic approaches I am trained to use can be the answer for you. I can help you to pull yourself up by your bootstraps and see a better day. Whether your depression is a new and sudden feeling of sadness or has been with you as a life long struggle. Now may be the time to heal.

There is hope if you are experiencing intense feelings of hopelessness and despair. However, first you need to learn about the new advances in neuroscience that emphasize the role of the brain in how you feel. Let me help you to develop insight into what triggers unhealthy, self-critical thoughts and self-defeating patterns of behavior.

Depression is painful, it can disrupt many areas of your life-- from personal relationships, work, organization and cleanliness, your sleep, appetite, and sex life. It can even make someone not want to go on. It is one of the most common problems I treat. Despite how common and painful it can be, there is good news. There are a number of highly effective treatments for depression supported by science. I utilize Cognitive Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Behavioral Activation, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and when appropriate some skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I also incorporate physical exercise and meditation when appropriate.

Tania Suarez, MSEd, LMHC, NCC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Within Driving Distance of New York City, NY

Depression can make it hard to engage with your loved ones, focus on your work, get out of bed, and even enjoy the things you used to. And it's even more frustrating when it's out of your control and perhaps for reasons you're unaware of. In a safe and compassionate space, I can help you understand and identify your triggers for depression and help you develop healthy coping strategies to manage your symptoms.
