Everyone feels sad or down occasionally, but if feelings of despair and hopeless have taken hold of your life and just won't go away, you may be suffering from depression.

I have a lot of background in treating patients with depression. I have achieved great results with people with certain forms of depression by making changes in their lifestyles, as well as cognitive behavioral changes. However, sometimes a patient's depression is too severe and talk therapy is not enough without medication. I work with a network of caring psychiatrists that have helped my patients with serious depression.

Depression sucks. It can make you feel hopeless, empty, and alone, even when things in your life are going well. Whether your depression is chemical, situational, or a combination of both, I can help you find ways to act against that depressed feeling and take steps towards feeling better. It is common for Depression to impact your sense of self-worth, and vice versa. Thus the most effective therapeutic treatment for Depression is to re-focus on the traits and values that define who you are as a person separate from that feeling; you can then use those strengths to fight the Depression and get back to feeling like your old self again. I specialize in treating Post-Partum Depression as well.
