Depression manifests in individuals in many ways. Some respond to depressing events by sleeping too much or too little. Others may change their eating patterns. Many will withdraw from events and lose motivation. These are just some of the corresponding symptoms of depression, and it impacts others differently. My approach helps people understand the underlying symptoms of depression, increase feelings of happiness, and learn proactive and reactive tools to manage depressive symptoms.

Depression can be a lonely place. A place where you are surrounded by your darkest and deepest thoughts. A place that feels isolated. A place that prevents you from moving forward, getting out of bed, and having a fulfilling life. Depression can become so powerful that instead of having hope, you can become consumed with feelings of sadness and hopelessness. In therapy, I will make you connect your emotional and physical pain into your depression and teach you self care, though stopping techniques, and relaxation techniques in order to overcome the symptoms. You and I will work together to work through your past traumas you have experienced growing up.

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.

When working with depression I take an eclectic approach. At the outset of therapy I work with the client to establish concrete goals. I employ various techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and take a psychodynamic approach to examine the underlying causes of depression. I believe depression should be approached in a holistic manner and often times requires incorporating other techniques and interventions outside of the clinical setting.

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.

Depression can rear it's ugly head when we least expect and without being fully aware that it is happening. Losing interest in activities that were once pleasurable, feeling overwhelmed and tired, sleeping in excess can all be signs of depression. Learn skills such as relaxation techniques, changing negative thought processes, and proactive ways of coping with stress to help you get back on the right track.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

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

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. As we explore how you feel, I listen in a way that provides the client with clarity, offer guidance without imposing decisions, accept the client as they are, without making judgments, as they move forward in achieving

I understand how depressing depression is! I know most people that struggle with depression do not appear to be struggling--they go about life much like everyone else, but what people don't know is how much harder it is to be fighting a constant uphill battle. Depression is not just about feeling sad or being pessimistic. It holds you back from doing the things you want. It gets in the way. There are good days when it doesn't affect you much at all, but then there are bad days that bring you to a dark, dark place in your mind. I know what it is like and I can help you in your battle against depression, contact me now

I have treated clients with depression for many years with a combination of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). A combination of these interventions are used to bring about symptom relief. Psychodynamic therapy addresses the underlying issues that may be contributing to the depression and then working through the feelings to a place of acceptance; DBT focuses on remaining in the present in order to prevent the client from ruminating on the past, interpersonal effectiveness, tolerating distress, and learning to modulate emotions; CBT is another way of addressing the depressive thoughts, feelings and behavior

When we feel depressed we can forget about taking care of our basic needs. Simple things like running errands or making the bed can feel insurmountable. Isolating from others can feel like the right thing to do but propel us further into a depressed space. Often we are unaware of how our mindset contributes to this state. And we try to cope by engaging in habits that increase feelings of shame and hopelessness. I can support you in your journey of coming out of the heaviness and into a lighter way of being. We can look at how shame may play a role in remaining stuck. We can look at unresolved fears and needs along with cognitive distortions that may keep you from moving forward.

Most of us get depressed at times in our lives. Sometimes, we need some guidance to help us through these difficult periods. I believe that the client/therapist relationship is very important in dealing with depression. If you make the decision to seek psychotherapy to help you deal with your depression, I think it is necessary to find a therapist that you can relate to. I work very hard to establish that bond and then explore your history and reasons why the depression exists. Using various techniques, my goal is to help you gain insight into your issues, learn better coping skills and ways of thinking and then help you move forward in your life to attain your goals.

All of us feel sad from time to time. But when sadness lasts for awhile and it affects our lives in a negative way, it is time to do something about it. Depression can be caused by various factors, such as, divroce, death, loss of job, abuse, and/or negative traumatic memories. Sometimes we may not be able to pinpoint the cause of our sadness. That's where counseling can prove beneficial. Therapy can help you figure out the source of your depression, give you tools to deal with it and set goals for a happier and brighter future.

Sadness, numbness, and anxiousness are natural and normal ways to cope with the tough feelings and experiences. These feelings aren't always pleasant, though, but I can help guide you through the painful reasons you're feeling this way. We can then develop new ways to cope, which can help you feel more alive again. It is possible to feel healthier and happier.

Sometimes "talk therapy" alone can relieve depression and most clients find it to be helpful. I do utilize cognitive therapy when dealing with depression because our thoughts have a great deal to do with our feelings and there is evidence that this treatment approach to depression can be quite effective. When necessary, I will provide a psychiatric referral for an evaluation to determine whether or not you are a candidate for medication.

Most clients suffer from some form of depression, due to work, marriage, family, or addiction problems. First if the symptoms are sever we recommend a consultation from a medical doctor. If the client suffers from insomnia, difficulty concentrating, anhedonia, or dramatic weight changes , we strongly suggest the client meet with their medical doctor. Also many people will call because they are struggling with depression, and sometimes it is due to an underlying medical condition, such as anemia, vitamin D deficiency, mono, thyroid condition etc. So we ask clients to request blood test be ordered by their doctor. After the vegetative symptoms are assessed and treated, then we proceed .

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.

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.
