Depression Therapist

Jennifer Costanza, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

2121 5th Avenue, Suite 214, San Diego, CA 92101

Depression is a terrible thing to be suffering with and many people do not know how to get out of it. My approach is multi-leveled. I first gather the client's history to discover clues as to the source of the depression. Sometimes depression is related to situations like past trauma or loss, or it could arise mainly from genetic factors. More often than not, we discover some trauma or loss and once that is worked through, the depression lifts. I offer guidance, compassion and support through the entire process.

Understanding that there are different types of depression, different levels of severity, and various causes, I work with each individual to assess what kind of depression they are experiencing and possible causes. Often anxiety and depression occur together. Along with providing a safe, non-judgmental place and therapeutic relationship for people to talk about their depressive feelings/emotions and experience, I also utilize research-based therapies that have proven effective for treating depression and anxiety.

Every life has times of sadness. When that sadness becomes depression, it is important to get support from a therapist. You can’t “just snap out of it,” and the effects can be devastating. Signs that you might be suffering from depression include a depressed mood most of the day, a loss of interest or pleasure in activities you previously enjoyed, poor or excessive, loss of energy, significant increase or decrease in appetite, thoughts of death. If you are experiencing these types of symptoms, don’t wait to get the support you need. Help is available. I provide a compassionate and supportive environment to assess your situation and work together toward relief. Contact me today.

Depression Therapist

Fredric Seldin, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

7840 Mission Center Court, Suite 102, San Diego, CA 92108

Depression can be caused by many different factors originating from internal (biological) and/or external (social) sources or a combination of inner and outer. In addition, there are many different kinds of depression because each of us has developed a unique way of coping with distress. Also, each of us has a unique personality which also will influence how we may experience depression. Regardless of the starting point or the manner in which it is manifested, depression is usually experienced as defeat. Feeling defeated can lead to psychological paralysis if left unaddressed. I help my patients overcome their feelings of defeat so they can feel hopeful about their future.

Depression Therapist

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

San Diego, CA 92101

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.
