Depression can rob people of their energy and joy. It may feel like an emotional toothache or a psychic migraine. Clients report they do not like feeling depressed but they do not know how to get out of it. There are reasons why people feel depressed and their are treatments that help relieve depression, pharmacological and cognitive-behavioral. I utilize cognitive-behavioral and developmental strategies in treating depression. If antidepressants have failed to resolve a depressed mood, there may be an underlying emotional wound that requires treatment. Please be aware that depression can also be a symptom of another illness or organic imbalance and should be assessed by a physician.

A large percentage of those whom I have seen over the years have struggled with depression in some form. It looks different from person to person. Some times depression accompanies a significant change or loss; some times it feels as if you have struggled with it all or most of your life. When it comes to treating depression, one size does not fit all. If you feel "less than" yourself, without as much energy, sad, prone to isolation, disinterested in life, or focused on thoughts of dying, please contact me so that we may explore those unique factors that contribute to your depressive symptoms.

If you are struggling with depression, it may seem like the simplest tasks have become unattainable obstacles. Things that used to be easy, such as getting out of bed, taking a shower, being social, or going to work may feel like draining tasks. I help my clients process their feelings in a safe, comforting environment to help reduce depressive feelings and symptoms. By learning how to change negative thinking patterns, boost self-care, and increase your self-care skills, it can significantly improve your overall mental health and reduce depression.

Depression is a very lonely disorder. People struggling with depression often find isolation and negative thoughts to be a vicious cycle and it sometimes seems impossible to get yourself out of it. Using the evidenced based treatments of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Enhancement Therapy, we can work together to improve your mood and your life. We can partner together so that you don't feel so alone while we identify and change the beliefs and thoughts that are keeping you stuck. It is possible!

Many people feel they may be "depressed" and therefore seek out the assistance of a therapist. First we must determine if you have a clinical depression. The term depression is used widely but often an individual is just feeling sad about an event and does not have a true clinical depression. This will involve a thorough assessment. Your concerns will be the focus of therapy. We may include your family and/or friends as needed. Recommending medication is never my first choice, but in some cases, a referral to your Primary Care Physician or a Psychiatrist for medication evaluation may be helpful to take the edge off of symptoms so you can work more effectively in session.

Depression can seem to impact every part of life at times and make any task seem like too much work. I provide my clients new ways of handling and challenging the negative thoughts that keep them feeling stuck. By using cognitive behavioral therapy, an evidence based treatment for depression, clients learn to change their thinking pattern that has led to a lot of their emotional pain.

Depression Counselor

Brian Nussbaum, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Although I utilize a variety of techniques to help clients address their depression, there are key approaches that have been shown in the research, as well as in my clinical practice, to be particularly helpful. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, both have excellent research results to back them up. When used individually, or in combination, clients learn new ways of interacting and coping with their own difficult thoughts and emotions. They also learn effective strategies to help engage life in more meaningful ways.
