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 robs us of joy and the ability to thrive in life. When I work with a client suffering from depression, we discover ways to both alleviate the symptoms that make daily life such a struggle and look at the underlying issues that are causing the depression. Gestalt therapy builds our awareness to the beliefs and past experiences that interrupt our ability to get the sense of connection in life needed to not be depressed. My approach helps people have greater awareness of the dynamics within them that lead to their depression so they can get at the underlying issues and truly change their lives.

Depression often results in a person believing that the only position to take is one of helplessness and hopelessness. Friends and family often cannot understand why their loved one cannot take action. However, to the person affected by depression, ruminating is the action they are taking which feels just as valid as any other type of action. Negative memories and negative interpretation of events dominante. It is difficult to accept the unknown and they under-estimate their ability to cope. Fatalistic beliefs, ambiguity and unfocused attention add to the overwhelming power of depression. In therapy, I help clients accept the unknown, focus attention, and transform the critical voice.

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.

We do this by exploring the origins of your depression and putting your current feelings into perspective.

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

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.

Depression is far more common than has been generally thought. Folks find themselves feeling hopeless, unable to concentrate, lacking initiative, having difficulty making decisions, trouble sleeping etc. Depression involves a slowing down of the entire human organism as well as lowered self-esteem. Often our dreams and images can lead us to discover the deeper meaning of the depression. Therefore sometimes depression can be a pathway to self-discovery.

People who experience depression share similar symptoms(from mild to severe) however, how each person arrives there is unique to the individual. I work with clients to identify the process of how their particular depression works and is maintained. Some depression needs additional assistance of a medical evaluation and medication support while others don't. Once a person can identify and interrupt their automatic process of depressing their needs,wants, desires they are on their way to having tools on how to live life. If the process has been engaged in for a long period of time and has become an automatic habitual way of being this could involve a commitment to long term work.

Often managing our feelings when disappointing events occur, is the most challenging of all things in our life. We may act out towards others with anger, resentment, and or try to make others to blame for our feelings Other times, we may punish ourselves for the circumstances we are in or how we view events. 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. Thinking of ourselves as being unable to speak, move forward leads to actions that have debilitating effects on your social life. Clients I work with learn to view themselves from a loving accepting perspective.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

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 Therapist

Bruce Levine, Ph.D., ABPP

Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, CA

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.

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 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. Depression may also be a sign beckoning our attention to the most fundamental human propensity for self-care and self-love. Therein lies the significance of being attuned to the voices of our souls and empowering them without pathologizing their symptoms.

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.

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.

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. This approach is collaborative, active, and supportive. Clients are usually asked to keep records, complete worksheets, test new behaviors, run experiments, and report back on the outcome.

There are many causes for depression and many forms of depression, from reactive depressions to deep internal depressions. Sudden depressions as well as long lasting depressions are not to be ignored. They are serious emotional responses which can benefit extensively from appropriate counseling and therapeutic interventions. Having a caring and listening ear to talk to during a time of depressive despair can be extremely healing. It is often stated that a healthy listening relationship can heal beyond measure. There are depressions which will benefit from medical interventions along with talking interventions. In general, cared for depressions will greatly improve and most will pass.

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.

Depression can be debilitating, and it is not something that someone can just snap out of. I help people gain awareness of how their thoughts affect their feelings, and subsequently work to help them engage in self-talk and ways of thinking that are more helpful for them. Likewise, I help people take inventory of how their actions and relationship patterns affect their mood and support them in finding new strategies that are better for their overall mental health. 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.

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.

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.

A need for emotional connection is wired into our DNA as a survival mechanism. But in response to childhood experiences, you may have developed patterns of relating to people that interfere with that essential attachment, so you feel chronically disconnected and depressed. At one time, these patterns protected you from a less than nurturing environment. But now they’re doing more harm than good. Like a self-fulfilling prophecy, your expectations about how others will treat you can lead you to behave in ways that elicit the very responses you fear.

Many clients who come to therapy are suffering from depression at some level. Often, "talk therapy" is sufficient to help them overcome negative thinking and get back on track. Sometimes, the feelings of sadness or hopelessness are the result of a recent (or distant) life event. Other clients report having always experienced life in this way. Depending on the circumstances and the severity of the symptoms, a referral to a physician for a consultation about medication is necessary.

Depression is an overused word, and therefore misunderstood. I will work with you to help you understand if you are truly depressed, caught in grief, or going through a rocky life-transition. How we respond to our life is as, or even more important than the facts of our life. Our reactions to our circumstances will guide our emotional path in either a positive or negative way. Let me help you embrace the parts of yourself that are unknown, even to you. Bringing your darkness to light, will help you to see yourself in a much more empathetic way.

Many of us will experience depression at some point during our lifetime. Depression has many different causes, including loss, life transitions, divorce, childhood abuse, traumatic experiences, genetics, illness, and many others. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the first tool in helping you to feel better. I will compassionately and supportively help you to identify and get to the root of the underlying thoughts, feelings and experiences in your life which may be contributing to your depression. In an atmosphere of non-judgment, you will begin to explore, process, and integrate these contributing factors, allowing you to feel a new sense of peace, lightness, and optimism.

You don’t need to struggle trying to get out from under the dense, dark, lonely and sometimes messy boulder of profound sadness all by yourself. I am here to help you hold and lift that burden, or sit with you until you are ready for me to help you move safely into the light. We can explore what has shaped who you are, what you want to change or keep as it is, what makes life worth holding on to. Together we can uncover, break down and manage the thoughts, feelings and beliefs preventing you from realizing your options and opportunities, your strengths and skills. You will learn to accept yourself with love and tolerance, to move forward toward having the relationships and life you long for.

Depression is very common, and often is a symptom of other problems that are going on. When I work with depression, I assess how long it has been present, what the root causes are if they are known, and what solutions have been attempted so far. Usually I will ask for a thorough evaluation by your doctor, because there are many underlying physical conditions that can cause feelings of depression. This does not mean that you necessarily need an antidepressant medication. Some people find them very helpful, and others don't want to add a medication to their systems. Your preference is important, and we will work with it. Depression sucks the joy out of life, and therapy can help!
