Depression Counselor

Gregory Crow, Ph.D.

Psychologist

7510 E. Angus Dr., Scottsdale, Arizona

Depression comes in many forms. There is a nagging, lower-grade type that makes every day tasks a drag to perform. There are also more severe mood disorders that make functioning almost impossible. Often, medications are helpful in addition to psychotherapy for these situations. Medicines help people function better in therapy (contrary to common beliefs), and allow people to resume their lives while they get help. It is important to realize that depression becomes a chemical imbalance at times, changing the way people actually think (negative, hopeless). We work to relieve unresolved emotional issues and substitute healthier patterns of thinking to facilitate getting back on track.

Certified Clinical Trauma Professional

5010 E Shea Blvd., Suite D-202, Scottsdale, Arizona

Depression is anger turned inward based on previous behavior of others and self and the inability to change the past. Anxiety is fear of what's coming up and the inability to determine the future. Often, people who are chronically depressed have had some level of trauma, abuse, or neglect that went unresolved. We explore these events of the past to examine the thoughts, feelings, and desires that shaped our self-concept. We redefine our perspective through a realistic lens in the "here and now" and develop boundaries to support a more authentic identity. A person's belief system is helpful in determining their thoughts and behaviors.

The Couples Expert-Loving Connections Counseling LLC, LCSW

Marriage and Family Counselor

7047 E Greenway Parkway Suite 250, Scottsdale, Arizona

My specialty in working with couples allows me the unique opportunity to work with both the person struggling with depression and their spouse. Unless the couple is treated along with the individual significant change will not occur. My training in couples counseling allows me to work with both people developing the natural supports that will aid in the recovery of the depression . This will allow for reduction of the depressed symptoms in a significantly shorter amount of time.

Licensed Professional Counselor

7418 E Helm Dr Suite 118, Scottsdale, Arizona

Depression can interfere with your everyday life.Therapy is a key part of depression treatment. Counseling for depression helps people learn how to cope with life’s stressors. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) works on the assumption that negative thinking affects your mood. It helps you see how your own thought patterns can contribute to your depression and teaches you practical ways to change them. Interpersonal therapy focuses on helping you improve communication with family and friends and increase your self-esteem so you can interact with them in a healthy way.

Licensed Associate Counselor, Licensed Associate Substance Abuse Counselor, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Certified Life Coach

4300 N Miller Rd, Suite 102, Scottsdale, Arizona

Managing depression requires a combined approach. First, I help clients with tools and skills to learn how to better balance their mood and depression symptoms. Secondly, I help clients identify what is triggering their depression. This could be unresolved traumas, self esteem issues, relationship problems and more. From this dual approach clients can find relief from depressive symptoms.

Depression Counselor

Tara J. Nolan, M.S.W., M.Ed., L.C.S.W.

Personal, Career, and Relationship Life Coach

In NE Phoenix at Greenway and Tatum, Phoenix, Arizona

Depression is not a matter of “having a poor attitude” nor is it something that a person can will away. This often misunderstood state is a real biological condition every bit as much as diabetes. Some depressions are situational and can be treated with psychotherapy alone, and some are rooted in the body’s biochemistry and must be treated with medication. My clients are evaluated carefully to determine the best treatment plan for them on a case by case basis, and of course the greatest care is taken to provide you with a safe place to express your sorrows and to be heard with empathy and patience.

Depression strips the joy from everyday living...steals away energy and desire to fully engage in life. You may feel it in your body and struggle to find pleasure at all. You do not have to wrestle with this pain alone any longer...you can begin to experience more ease, fulfillment, and comfort in being yourself and with others by getting support today. I offer a safe, supportive environment where you can freely express yourself, so that we may uncover underlying beliefs and lifestyle practices contributing to the feelings of helplessness and lack of hope. I offer verbal therapy along with creative expression, mindfulness, and cognitive therapies to help you get your life back!

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

8737 E. Via De Commercio, Suite 200, Scottsdale, Arizona

One of the most challenging aspects of depression are the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. Depression does not have to take over your life and yet I understand that it feels that way at times. As your therapist, I see your strengths and work with you to find concrete solutions and ways to feel solid about yourself and your life. It can be so helpful to have a space to share your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs to explore how they are effecting you and your relationships with others.

Depression Counselor

Anne Brown, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

4300 North Miller Road, Suite 222, Building D, Scottsdale, Arizona

Depression is a condition that can impact the quality of your life and your relationships. It is not something you have to live with. I work with client's to assess the underlying causes of depression. Depression can have its roots in trauma, health, relationships, loss and poor self-care. I work with client's to evaluate the entire scope of factors ranging from self-defeating patterns to general health and nutrition. Depression thrives on loneliness and negative self-talk. I can offer you the support and encouragement you need so that we can work to reduce or eliminate the origins of your depression.
