Depression is one of the most disabling conditions a human being can experience. When you're going through it, it's nearly impossible to believe it can get better. But it can. If you're experiencing depression, I urge you to get treatment as soon as possible, whether with me or someone else. If you work with me, we'll start out with behavior changes you can make that will help you feel a little better right away. As our work progresses, we'll look at a wide variety of influences on your depression and tailor your treatment plan to your needs. I include positive psychology perspectives in my work, which means I can help you not only reduce symptoms but increase the level of happiness.

Depression is a common yet serious illness that is treatable with a 3 prong approach: medical attention (to rule out medical issues contributing), psycho-therapy (to treat underlying contributing), and diet and exercise routine (walking, nutritious meals, etc.). Collaborative care can provide the support needed to address challenges and live your life fully.

Depression Therapist

Jason Esswein, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

San Jose, CA 95120

Depression can be painful for the person suffering from it as well as those closest to them. When we are depressed, previously enjoyable activities can appear meaningless. We lose interest in connecting with others (often exacerbating symptoms). Furthermore, it can feel as though there is "no point" to life. We all have periods of time when we feel less than ideal, but depression is severe and enduring. Counseling provides an atmosphere where it is safe to discuss these feelings.

Does life seem bleak right now? Have you lost interest in the things you used to enjoy? Do you feel sad most of the time? Do you have little to look forward to, and a lot you’d prefer not to look back on? When you are convinced that things will never get better no matter what, you are depressed. I can give you tools and teach you how to use them to dig yourself out of the emotional ditch you’re in. It is possible to feel hope again when you know how.

Depression Therapist

Mary-Stone Bowers, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Depression brings on a sense that all is bleak, hopeless and dark. It can feel like a huge struggle to get out of bed or impossible to stop crying. Suicidal thoughts to end it all might occur as can physical aches and pains. Getting little pleasure out of what used to bring you joy is a common symptom. Psychotherapy can be incredibly beneficial to someone suffering depressed and often accompanying feelings of anxiety. In a safe and secure relationship with a therapist, you can get a better understanding of your thoughts and feelings that might be a result of a recent trauma or lifetime experiences. With understanding can come relief and a renewed sense of optimism and lightness.

Depression Therapist

Doreen Maxwell MFT and Associates Experiential Psychotherapy, MFT, CHT

Marriage & Family Therapists, Certified Hakomi Psychotherapy

Within Driving Distance of San Jose, CA

Depression is different from grief, sadness, or challenging transitions. If you find yourself feeling stuck in states of low energy, low motivation, and apathy, it is time to seek help. I primarily use Hakomi Experiential Therapy to help you uncover old beliefs and patterns that may have been adaptive in your family, but that aren't serving you anymore. I can teach you practices to use all your sensory awareness to bring pleasure to your life again. This discovery process can bring capacity for new choices, new feelings of energy and creative vitality.

Depression Therapist

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

San Jose, CA 95111

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
