When 1 or both partners in a relationship are depressed, it can take a toll on the couple. It's very difficult to invest any energy or time into a relationship when you feel completely distant and overwhelmed by the day-to-day challenges you are up against. It's also difficult for a partner to really understand why depression is so intense and why it effects all of the different aspects of a relationship. I use research proven methods to help couples talk about their depression and what kind of impact it has had on them personally and on their relationship. You don't have to struggle with depression alone. Your partner can help you through it and I can show you how that works.

Being mired in depression is one of the worst feelings in life. When someone feels like they have been turned upside down and the life has been poured out of them - it may seem like an impossible dream to feel better. But depression is often treatable. I approach depression work from a cognitive, behavioral and emotional approach. Once the mood starts to life we then can delve deeper into why you are depressed in the first place to help keep you from going down that hole again.

My approach will vary depending on the severity of the depression. The first importance is stability of well being. From there I will work on thoughts, feelings, and behaviors working towards short terms goals. Goals will include small behavior changes that will help to be building blocks and also cognitive work on realistic truths. Often things like sleep, nutrition, and exercise are also evaluated and improved in the process as ways to counter depression.

Depression Counselor

Sharon Depowski, LCSW, CADC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol/Drug Counselor

Within driving distance of Cicero

I think that my most important technique is to assist individuals in recognizing that depression is a condition and is not a form of laziness; many individuals have expressed a sense of relief as others have encouraged them to "just get over it". I utilize a combination of support and encouragement, including discussions of successes and challenges. I strongly discourage the use of the word "should" and any judgmental language. In addition, I believe that there is no specific time table for recovery, and that each individual is unique in their recovery.

Richard Cohen, Ph.D

Clinical Psychologist

Depression counseling, because of its nature, requires commitment from both of us. Frequently I ask that you consult an MD about the value of medication in treating depression. It would allow you to more readily resolve the issues so that you are better able to find satisfactory ways to gain a perspective of your conflicts. This will allow you to move forward. There are books, workbooks, CD's, groups, all of which can be helpful.

My personal experience with depression has given me helpful knowledge in how to tackle this insidious emotional state. Depression often robs us of the joy we so heartily want in life and can lead to feelings of loneliness, exhaustion and emotional isolation. Seeking help for depression is key to learning manage the thought processes that weigh down the body/mind during depressive episodes. My approach is rooted in mindfulness practices helping each person learn to track and trace their thought patterns related to depressive thinking and felt-sense emotions along with engaging the body in self-care activities aimed at building a health sense of self-efficacy.
