Feelings of depression can be extremely debilitating at times, affecting the quality of one's life. Low self-worth, sleep disturbance, pervasive sadness, all present emotional pain that takes on a life of its own.

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.

There are many types of depression. The people that I see usually have "the blues" or a situational depression. Most people are high functioning and respond really well to the Cognitive-Behavioral therapy techniques that I use to help people feel a greater sense of happiness and well-being overall. The good news is that new brain research supports the action-oriented techniques that I teach to facilitate feeling better and making changes in overall mood.

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.

Depression Therapist

Tami Chelew, MA, CSAT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist - LMFT #79759

10065 Old Grove Rd Ste 102, San Diego, CA 92131

I am an Emotionally Focused therapist (EFT). Research shows that those who suffer from depression actually benefit quite well from EFT therapy. Depression can be very isolating. The pain of isolation is inherently traumatizing. We are meant to be in relationship with others. I work with indiviudals and couples who struggle with depression by strengthening their relationship so that there is a deeper felt sense that the person who is suffering from depression can experience that they do matter, that they are important, that they are cared for and loved by another. This helps create a more secure attachment to self and others which is therapeutic and needed for healing.

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.

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

Mary Obata, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

5100 Marlborough Dr., San Diego, CA 92116

Symptoms of depression can sometimes be devastating and cause an inability to function and at other times can be mild but chronic. Depression counseling with me involves talk therapy along with mind/body therapy that helps release whatever stuck patterns and negative beliefs that may be contributing to the low self-esteem, lack of motivation and energy, hopelessness, isolation, sleeping and eating problems. Using a holistic approach, it can be important to look at biological, psychological and social/external factors that may be causing the depression and make sure that each area is addressed. Depression may also be accompanied by anxiety and I have extensive experience treating both issues.
