My approach attacks depression by quickly focusing in on the primary cause of depression. I show people how their current beliefs about their adversities, past and present, are the primary cause of depression. I teach people how it is well within their power to adopt, without delay, alternative beliefs that help them cope with and prevail over these adversities. I also show my patient how to feel worthwhile and adequate even if she is depressed and performing poorly in life. Often self-downing goes with feelings of depression and makes for depression over being depressed. REBT tackles the rut of depression by attacking both the original and the secondary feelings of depression.

If you’re struggling with depressive symptoms, therapy is a critical part of relief. The first step is being heard & then assessed. Is this a new experience or a familiar one? Has it been triggered by a specific situation? The next, is identifying & replacing negative coping strategies & thoughts with positive alternatives. In addition to identify negative thought patterns, it’s vital to understand where these beliefs came from & work to reframe unhealthy views of the self & others. Know that I’m not someone who immediately suggests medication to everyone. A certain level of discomfort prompts us to change. However, when medication is needed, I'll work closely with your PCP or psychiatrist.

I create a safe, warm, caring atmosphere so that you can share your painful, feelings of depression, sadness, helplessness and hopelessness. You may also be experiencing guilt, anger, fear, shame or grief that often accompany depression. I can help you shift from this state of emotional and mental darkness to the experience of emotional and mental light. I can help you let go of “shoulding” on yourself, unrealistic expectations, perfectionism, self attack thoughts, loss and the sense you are defective or deficient in some way. In the process you will learn to be more forgiving and compassionate to your self; more hopeful and optimistic; and to be more resourceful, resilient, self-aware a

We all do our best to have an abundance of hope in our lives. Sometimes circumstances, emotional wreckage and frustration prevent our reaching our goals and expectations. By identifying the emotional toll charged by an endless cycle of frustration, a personal plan of growth will be put in place. This approach short-circuits frustration and provides hope now and into tomorrow. Dr. Eljay has 20 years of counseling experience in lessening this burden.

Depression has many different forms & causes. It often involves anger at oneself, guilt and shame. Depression is sometimes related to life events in which one has been hurt, and treatment may center on facing and resolving the effect these experiences have had on you. Many kinds of emotional losses may lead to depression. Relationships with others and feelings about oneself are often painful in depression; these feelings can be worked through and resolved in therapy. Depression can be severe and present for a long time-- often tied to childhood experiences-- before one reaches the point of seeking help.

One of my clients once explained her depression to me as falling down a well and being stuck at the bottom. People would tell her to get over it, feel better, etc., but she believed that being stuck at the bottom of the well was an impossible situation to get out of. It is that sort of dismissal that leaves people feeling isolated and alone with their depression. In therapy, I will help you find a way to climb out, without the pressure of someone telling you to simply "get over it." We will take our sessions at whatever pace you are comfortable with.

Depression can distort your view of yourself, your future and the world, leaving you feeling hopeless, guilty or worthless. If you are depressed, you know that it is impossible to "just snap out of it." Research shows that depression disrupts the optimal chemical balance in the brain and changing that is not easy, but therapy is an important part of effective treatment. It is important to recognize ways of thinking or relating to others that hold depression in place; then it is possible to grow in the freedom to think, feel and relate to others differently. These small changes lay the foundation for more growth and healing, and give you the courage to risk new ways of relating.

We are whole people - thoughts, feelings, body, heart, mind, soul. Yet many times when we seek to treat depression, we are treated as a walking symptom list, with "problems" to be defeated or obliterated. Sometimes, depression is our body and mind's way of protecting us - getting us to slow down, to notice, to feel, to grieve. When we seek to obliterate or fight against it, we lose that precious message and we set ourselves up for failure. Therapy should work towards alleviating the symptoms of depression, while also holding and regarding the roots of it with gentle introspection. Together, we will work towards healing in a way that preserves and respects your unique journey.

There is a wide continuum that constitutes depression. We all have "bad days" or an occasional case of the "blues," but if you rarely experience any joy in life, if more often than not, it is shear drudgery to get up and face the day, or if your situation feels hopeless, then you may well be suffering from clinical depression. I'll help you identify the source of the depression, and we'll work together to resolve it. If medication seems appropriate (rarely my first choice), I can refer you for medication evaluation.

We are social beings. If our interactions with others are difficult or conflicted, depression can result. We may feel hopeless, isolated, sad, irritated, even worthless. In a safe, empathetic environment, I help clients to identify relationship patterns which fuel their depressive symptoms, and to change problematic ways of relating to others as well as to themselves. When our relationships are going well, we feel better about ourselves, we engage in activities, we increase our mood. We enjoy living!
