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.

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.

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.

My training, background, and experience can provide those suffering from depression the necessary tools and strategies to help improve mood and return to stable and healthy functioning. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming to face these challenges, but that is why I focus on taking baby steps, taking it one day at a time, and putting one foot in front of the other, and providing a lot of support and understanding. I have witnessed many clients improve and successfully fight off their depression. There is hope!

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 is a particularly cruel and insidious companion, often working in tandem with other problems to try to silence us, to steal joy and passion, and to convince us of our uselessness. Depression may try to convince us that there is one truth - our own unworthiness - to the exclusion of all others. Together we will challenge depression's version of your story.

Depression is stigmatized, leaving sufferers feeling isolated. Lack of education regarding depression causes others to assume its under the person's control; when often there are biological factors blocking healing. Callous terms like "Snap out of it" leave the sufferer feeling all the more hopeless, because they can't snap out of it any more than a diabetic can snap out of diabetes without medical attention or treatment. Depression can be the result of a depletion of significant hormones in the brain. The Word of God is a powerful tool I use with clients to stifle the negative cognitions of depression. I refer clients for medical intervention when depression is not responding to therapy.

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.
