Depression is not something that exists "in" you. It is something you experience in a context. When we are out of connection with others we can become depressed. My approach to healing depression is not to simple help people get "over" their depression but by helping people move in and through it. That means, feeling into the pain and potential danger of feeling the feelings that are in you. When we are not alone in our feelings they can change.

Depression should be seen as normal in that all of us experience depression periodically. Too much depression is discouraging and can be treated. Find out of your depression is "normal" or clinically troubling. Relief from depression is available for most depressed persons. Often depressed persons are understimuated with not enough fun or activity. On the other hand depression can be seen as the opposite of "expression" where thoughts, feelings and needs are not sufficiently acknowledge and expressed.

CBT is a particularly effective treatment for depression, both as a combined approach with medication and as a stand alone treatment. Participating in CBT therapy for depression can help you restructure negative thought patterns and get out of negative cycles of thinking. Changing the way you think can help you interpret your environment and interactions with others in a more effective and positive way, improving the way you feel about yourself and helping improve your relationships with others. It may also help you recognize things that may be contributing to the depression and help you start doing things that lead to a reduction of symptoms and feelings of meaningful happiness.

Depression often goes hand in hand with low self-esteem. In treating depression, I would help clients to separate themselves from their depression so that they could start to build back their self-concept. In addition, I would empower clients to use mindfulness concepts to treat their depression by focusing on the present moment, acknowledging their feelings, working through difficult emotions, and accepting the impermanence of feelings.

Depression is often a state of confusion resulting from the lack of permission or guidance in processing difficult situations. An opportunity to work through past trauma can help lift depression so there is a greater emotional freedom to move forward and make choices in life. This support to process needs to be kind and understanding while providing a bit of a "push" to find the courage to face whatever scary feelings might be hidden away.

I believe that there is a purpose to the symptoms that you are suffering. I work from a psychodynamic perspective and what that means is that I will make a space for you to explore all of your feelings and help you become aware of unconscious thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and patterns that may be causing your depression. I also help patients become more aware of inner strengths and resources that they may be equally unconscious of. Discovering these strengths gives one the ability to confront unresolved issues that have caused suffering. The increase in awareness leads to a decrease in depression---resulting ultimately in an increase in life-satisfaction.

Making the decision to go to therapy can be a difficult one to make. Finding the right therapist can be even harder. My treatment focuses on depression that stems out of childhood trauma.

Depression can come in many forms. When you feel depressed, life is not working, you feel exhausted, you tend to isolate, and hold a negavite perception about your life, your self esteem, and not feeling hopeful about your future. My approach to treating depression is to move you out of isolation, work through your feelings of hurt, shame and guilt, and begin to trust and connect with others. You will benefit from learning how boundaries can help you to say yes to life, how to say no to others and their hurtful control, and take control over what is yours and what you want for yourself and your relationships. You will benefit from finding hope and solutions to depression.

When there is trauma underlying a person's depression, I help people process this so they can move on from the past and into a brighter future.

Depression has many different faces. It can be triggered by sad events, like the loss of a loved one, or by seemingly happy events, like the birth of a child. Sometimes it can even be caused by influences we don’t really understand. Helping individuals identify the causes of their depression, and explore new ways to cope are at the heart of my work in this area. Often clients who begin therapy because of depression discover that what they are feeling is to past trauma, issues related to their family history or upbringing, negative thinking or limiting beliefs. With the opportunity to work through past issues in a safe, non-judgmental setting often helps people find relief from their overwhelming emotions and lift the fog of depression that has been weighing them down.

Depression ranges from mild to major. The first thing I do when working with depression is increase your activity in baby steps. Even taking a walk around the block can help. Also, we feel what we think. We'll look at your thoughts (cognitions) and check for distorted thinking. If there is any we will look for evidence to support the thought and if it's not true; I will ask you to make a more rational response to your statements. Working with a professional helps get you out of the fog and back into your life.

Depression is a normal and natural human condition. It provides an opportunity for healing and growth if/when it takes over our inborn capacity to preserve our sense of well-being.

When treating depression, I employ cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) therapy which is empirically validated in research studies to help people with depression. By modifying routines and behavior and learning how to challenge dysfunctional thoughts, clients are helped to improve mood in a relatively short time.

There are two emotions which can be utilized in the process of healing from trauma: anger and sadness. Sadness can be a very effective vehicle for healing. The only problem with sadness is that it is such a short leap from there to depression. Sadness heals; depression does not. Depression can keep a person stuck in the same place for years without any progress. You must be very careful not to fall into depression when you decide to explore your feelings about the negative experiences of your life. Unfortunately, many people find the difference between sadness and depression to be obscure at best, and they often vacillate between the two. We encourage you to be very careful of depression becau....

Many clients enter therapy feeling depressed or overwhelmed. After assessing for safety issues and/or the need for a psychiatric evaluation, I work with cients to understand the stressors or underlying issues (or events in the past) that have produced the depression. I work with the client to challenge their feelings of helplessness and focus on actions and beliefs that promote feelings of strength and hope. I help them redefine themselves as capable and valuable; moving from hopelessness to hopefulness, and finding the internal and external tools and strength to battle depressive, negative views of themselves that may have been burdening and depressing them for many years.

Depression can have roots in the earliest years of our lives due to hurts at a sensitive age, or can result from current experiences of traumas, losses, and disappointments. Often these two origins dovetail, with current stressors resurrecting earlier levels of depression. A good therapy will take seriously the level and personal experience of depression. Clear introspection into the cause, development of truly effective coping strategies, and support for a process of working through depression is the basis of my therapeutic approach.

All of us occasionally experience feelings of sadness. Most of the time, these painful interludes clear rapidly. Clinical depression, however, is an extremely painful state which is characterized by intense feelings of hopelessness and despair. When this mood state occurs, professional help is needed. My therapeutic process allows the here and now experience between therapist and client to reveal how present day thoughts, feelings, and beliefs formed in the past influence your current life and affect your mood. Bringing to light the cognitive processes that may be holding the depression in place help you gain the clarity and control needed to restore your health. Please feel free to call.

Depression can feel like a lead weight that you carry around with you day in and day out. It can be hard to remember that you ever felt better or to believe that you will ever feel good again. One of the most valuable things that therapy can do for depressed people is to inspire hope, to restore the confidence that one can find or recover a positive outlook on life. We do this by exploring the origins of your depression and putting your current feelings into perspective. You'll be encouraged to find your strengths and inner resources and harness them to pull you through to a more lively and empowered state of mind.

Depression is a condition that can be insidious in that the symptoms are frequently physically and emotionally debilitating. Friends and relatives often suggest as a cure to merely "take a walk" or "think positively" in order to combat those symptoms which usually only increase feelings of shame and encourage patients to further isolate. I don't offer such simple suggestions but construct a treatment plan that includes supportive psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral techniques and integrating an evaluation for medication if indicated and desired by the patient.

Depression often results following some type of loss. However, often it is not the loss itself that causes the depression, but the person's assessment and thoughts about the loss that produces feelings of depression. Cognitive therapy, as practiced by Dr. Levine, can help reverse such clinical depression. It is normal to feel sadness following a loss or unexpected negative life event and cognitive therapy is frequently an excellent method for insuring that normal sadness does not morph into clinical depression. If medication might help in addition to therapy, Dr. Levine will help direct you to a competent psychopharmacologist to provide this additional assistance, if you choose.

If the people in your life haven't ever experienced depression (which is different than being depressed), they can't understand why you can't get over it, move on with your life, or do the things that you used to do. Some people even get into "cheerleading" (c'mon-- you can do it!). That's why I work to understand your depression and help you to manage the feelings of helplessness, despair, and frustration related to depression--little by little, day by day, you might start to get better under my care as I would do my best to understand what you're going through.

Depression Treatment Helps You Take Back Control Of Your Life The first step in depression treatment is to come out of isolation. When you share your pain with me in a caring and supportive environment there can be an immediate sense of relief. Often just the act of admitting to another person the extent to which you are struggling can be a big step out of shame and into feeling better. Humanistic Therapy has been widely recognized as a way of healing depression. That is, being in the presence of another person who is unconditionally accepting of you and your struggles can have a deep healing effect on your psyche and even your brain.

Depression is a complex condition that involves changes in mood, behavior and thinking. It can effect our most important personal and work related relationships. Physically, it can interrupt our sleep, appetite and energy level. Sometimes, a medical solution is needed and other times a psychological approach is best while other times a combination of both is the optimal treatment. As a psychotherapist with 32 years experience, I have helped many people overcome their depression through proven treatments that change the patterns of thinking, acting, and relating that tend to maintain depressive moods. Psychotherapy can greatly benefit the person seeking relief from this condition.

We all feel down sometimes. Real depression is when we can’t get back up. Or it’s when we do so only after great effort, and even then it’s not all the way back. If sadness, hopelessness, and helplessness get in your way, that’s depression. Even mild or periodic depression can interfere in your life. It can also increase conflicts at work and in your relationships. Therapy helps, even without medication. Some people may benefit from medication, but that’s on an individual basis, and research shows that medication works best when it’s combined with therapy. We’ll examine what causes the depression, what you’ve tried, and what else can be done. Depression doesn’t have to stop your living.

Depression can be debilitating and seldom goes away by itself. It is often a result of built-up feelings of hurt and anger that have not been expressed outwardly or have turned toward the self. It is unfortunate that many people go through their lives experiencing depression when something can be done about it. When depressed, because we feel lethargic and lack energy, it is often accompanied by feelings of helplessness and hopelessness - a feeling that one can never escape it. There is hope however, and together we can help get the joy that life has been missing back. Feel free to call my office for a free 15 minute telephone consultation at 800-474-1445.

Sadness vs. Depression? Which is it? Treatable YES! Everyone feels sad or 'blue' on occassion. People tend to grieve over a loss, but usually, the feelings of grief tend to lessen over time. Depression occurs when feelings of extreme sadness or despair last for at least 2 weeks or longer and tend to interfere with activities of everyday living. Deperessed feelings include helplessness, hopelessness and even thoughts of death and possibly suicide. People with these feelings may feel overwhelmed. Causes may be from body chemistry which influence mood and thought. Chronic illness can accompany depression. Start feeling better. Give me a call and make an appointment now. Dr. Sobo

Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression.

By talking with an expert, becoming aware of the specific "kind" of depression (there are many kinds....hormonal, clinical, psychological to name a few ) you can understand the causes. By identifying the causes, your treatment plan will include looking deeper into the situations, people, experiences (past or present) which may be keeping you depressed. For instance, unresolved "anger" is a primary cause for depression. Also "loss" and "guilt". Talking will help. Your therapist will guide you in a direction to help you gain insight into what might be unresolved in your life and help you through it. Knowledge and understanding the causes are the beginning.

Depression is often thought of as the acting in process. Not being able to stop self punishment leads to a depressed sense of self esteem.

Depression affects every aspect of a person's life. I educate my clients about the effects of depression, I assure them that there is no shame in being depressed and that is is widely recognized as a medical condition. I help them change negative thoughts and behavior patterns and explore situations that contribute to the problem. I may offer a referral for medication if needed and I give them effective tools for regaining their joy of living.

Depression can be debilitating and seldom goes away by itself. It is often a result of built-up feelings of hurt and anger that have not been expressed outwardly or have turned toward the self. It is unfortunate that many people go through their lives experiencing depression when something can be done about it. When depressed, because we feel lethargic and lack energy, it is often accompanied by feelings of helplessness and hopelessness - a feeling that one can never escape it. There is hope however, and together we can help get the joy that life has been missing back. Feel free to call my office for a free 15 minute telephone consultation at 800-474-1445.

Again deep breathing is the key here. The inhale will energize you and the exhale will relax you. Low energy is a key symptom of depression. Also hopelessness and helplessness. Changing the way you breathe will directly change your nervous system and change the way you feel physiologically. It will also change the way you perceive reality. If you have clinical depression (not situational) then medication in addition to psychotherapy may be advised. Mostly I help people get off medication. Exercise is as effective in treating depression as medication.

You can fight depression by exploring how your present emotions relate to past experiences. These insights, gained under the guidance of a caring professional, can deliver release, increase your understanding, build self-esteem and lead to healing. In parallel, you can learn ways to examine your thoughts regarding negativity, distortions etc. This helps you create more positive and realistic thoughts, moving away from having no control towards taking control. In addition, relaxation/meditation techniques can bring you a sense of balance and peace. If poor exercise, nutrition, sleep and social support contribute to your depression, I'll guide you to make changes and keep track of them

When the weather is bleak and dreary raining, or snowing for days on end, we may feel as if it will never end. This may be the way you feel when you are depressed; that you will never feel better. Depression is a major mental illness but certainly one that can be treated. If you are feeling hopeless, crying much of the time, having difficulty sleeping or sleeping too much and feeling very helpless, you are depressed. Maybe someone you love has died, or a longtime pet has died. New Mom's often get depressed. It may be more than just "the baby blues". Give me a call. I would like to talk to you about the way you are feeling.
