Are you feeling down? Do you have difficulty getting a good night sleep? Do you lack the energy or interest to do the things you once found interesting? Depression is a state of being that can impact us physically, psychologically, and spiritually. Depression can be overcome or greatly managed, but it does take work. Psychologically, the work requires you to become increasingly mindful of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Once we are able to see, we have the option to change.

Our approach to therapy focuses on the whole person and not just the symptoms. We are trained in various treatments they may be used by themselves or in combination with others, depending on our client's needs. We find that most of our clients benefit from a combination of Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) to address depression. Psychodynamic Therapy will help you gain insight about how your emotions affect your behaviors. CBT also uncovers core beliefs, but it takes you a step further by helping you break those unhealthy thought/behavior patterns and replace with new ones. Contact us today to assess which approach is appropriate for you in managing depression.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

Depression breeds hopelessness, a pervasive darkness that can make it difficult to reach for help. You may feel a low grade of chronic depression in which you can function but rarely seem to enjoy anything you do. Or it may feel like there’s a refrigerator on your chest, making it difficult to even get out of bed. Others around you don’t understand, telling you to “cheer up” or “get over it,” not understanding why your mood is so low. While the best results are often a combination of therapy and medication, therapy alone is often successful in treating depression. Good therapy will provide a path out of depression, a journey that has you feeling better and more hopeful along the way.

Everyone experiences sadness, but depression is a heavier and more stagnant emotion that can isolate a person from life. Talk therapy is often not enough, and I use imagery, brainspotting and biofield tuning to help move the heaviness out of the body. There are ogifts in depression, and an essential part of the work is to discover those gifts.

I approach Depression from several angles. 1)Lifestyle changes (adequate sleep, exercise, nutrition, fun activities), 2) Underlying beliefs about oneself that contribute to low self-esteem and shame, 3) Positive support system of friends and family, and 3) The possible need for medication or natural supplements if there seems to be a true brain chemistry imbalance that cannot be fully addressed just with regular therapy. I have found that ALL of these areas must be addressed in order to effectively treat Depression.

Paul Kelner, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Certified Sex Addiction & Anger Management Therapist

Within driving distance of Greenbelt

In my work with men and women with compulsive and out-of-control sexual behaviors, I have found that many of my clients have untreated or under-treated depression. Many individuals learn at an early age that sexuality can soothe uncomfortable feelings, such as depression. Over time, these behaviors can become habitual and may escalate in intensity and risk. One of themes important goals of treatment is to learn healthy ways to cope with depression.

Christina Schultz, MA

Resident in Counseling, Supervised by Thomas Lamp, LPC

Within driving distance of Greenbelt

I view depression from existential, cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, social learning, systems, and medical models. I view that shame, low self-concept, and deeper identity and existential issues often do underlie moderate and severe depression, and support SSRI or SNRI interventions for postpartum moms and clients with moderate to severe depression, with recurrence. I employ assessments and CBT homework assignments to help clients reduce their negative cognitive lens, and encourage client resilience through positive coping skills (e.g. exercise), meaning-making, and positive psychology exercises (e.g. gratitude and altruism).

Depression Counselor

Laurie Friedman Donze, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Greenbelt

Depression is one of the most difficult problems to treat in psychotherapy. Many times, a client may be too depressed to do the things that would help him/her feel better. When treating depressed clients, I take a detailed history to fully understand the timing and onset of depressive symptoms or episodes. Often, understanding the trigger behind a depressive episode can be helpful in fostering self-compassion in the client. We will also discuss and try to manage or change current stressors that are maintaining the depression. I recommend personalized self-care behaviors that have a positive effect on mood. Social support and social interaction are also recommended to combat isolation.

Depression is sometimes referred to as the "common cold" of mental health. At its root depression is about loss and loss always in some way has to do with love. In depression we lose a sense of connection to ourselves, to our relationships, to our tasks and even to God. In therapy, I provide a safe environment where you can face your sadness and loss, talk about it and reconnect in a caring place. Healing comes as deep pain is brought into loving and compassionate connection.

If you are feeling depressed, you are probably feeling disconnected from yourself, your relationships, your tasks and your responsibilities. You may be feeling sad, a sense of dread or a loss of hope in your future. My approach to therapy is to provide a supportive and compassionate place where you can talk about your pain, be understood and find new ways of coping with the difficulties you are facing. Sometimes simply sharing your sadness with another person can put you on the pathway to healing.

Depression Counselor

Dr. Beverly Wright, (M.Div., M.Th.)

Licensed Clinical Christian Counselor

Within driving distance of Greenbelt

Depression is a cloud over one's life. For those afflicted with depression, please understand you are not alone. You are not going out of your mind, and the black cloud can be lifted. As a depressed Christian, don't feel ashamed. A sad truth is that many Christians attach spiritual failure to depression. So, they suffer in silence, hoping, and praying for deliverance. For clients wishing to be treated without habit forming drugs, I can assist in finding a reprieve, through Bibliotherapeutic, and God's earthly grown methods. If it is determined that medication is required, I can provide a referral. With both methodologies in place, the mind, body, and soul can be successfully restored.
