Depression often times is a symptom of stuffing ones emotions for years and finally the emotions shutdown. Sometimes depression is a reaction to a current loss. Identifying why the depression exists and what the individual is "truely" reacting to is key to undoing the patterns of depression. Often times, an individual has never focused on their internal feelings to allow themselves to feel what they feel. Therapy becomes an avenue to identify and resolve issues which to date have been buried and contribute to having depression in the first place. If depression is the result of a current trauma, addressing the issues can again reduce the degree of depression. Medication can be helpful.

Many people struggle with depression, men and women as well as children and adolescents. Depression needs to be assessed for severity and treated appropriately. The standard of care may include medication and talk therapy involving Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which can be very effective for most clients. Depression can also mask frustration and anger which should be explored in treatment. Most people benefit from treatment for this sometimes troubling issue. Other family members may also be included in the treatment.
