Becoming and being depressed can be devastating and as significant as dealing with a serious physical illness. Depression can involve a constellation of symptoms and behavior manifestations that can be incapacitating. Therapy for depression can include a multitude of approaches including diet, exercise, and when appropriate, medications. Often, it is a combination of some or all of these, that helps the client get better. Depression for children could be precipitated by an event or trauma, a family situation or trauma, or for no apparent reason at all. It is important that it is recognized, assessed and treated.

Depression may be caused by many factors and I look into a persons history to find the key to the beginning of the depression, many times in early childhood. As mentioned before I use Trauma methods to approach the trauma and to find the "keystone" event that may have started the trauma leading to depression. Sometimes there is a biological reason for this depression causing these triggers to go off. I can also then refer to a specialist MD.

We provide specialized therapy for our rehab clients struggling with co-occurring illnesses. For individuals dealing with addiction, mental issues such as depression are quite common. For some, addiction contributed to their depression, but for other individuals, feeling depressed lead to self-medication, which was the portal for drug or alcohol abuse and addiction. Feelings of isolation, fear, hopelessness, and overwhelming self-doubt can all contribute to a depression diagnosis. Our goal is to use our safe and supportive environment to allow clients to open up with their groups and therapist about their underlying issues contributing to their clinical depression.

Clients usually experience a progressive decline in mood, which can impact their emotions, the quality of their sleep, relationships (they may even begin to withdraw from others), and have persistent negative thoughts. Many clients prefer to explore viable holistic and integrative strategies before trying medication. In our collaboration, we will design a plan to explore possible options, strategies to strengthen effective coping mechanisms, and identify a plan to enhance the opportunity for recovery.

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 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.
