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.

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.

Most people come to therapy for depression, and this is usually after a loss. We look to see what that loss might have been and with your courage and my compassion, we do the grief work that is needed. Other people have suffered from "over control." That is, they have adopted unrealistic standards of self-control and perfectionism and find it impossible to fully embrace themselves. We work to help them with this task. Still others have depression as anger turned inwards. They find that when they are finally able to get in touch with their walled-off anger, they are able to feel less depressed.

Although their are various symptoms attributed to depression, at its core it involves a loss of one's sense of passion and purpose in living. I help people recover their lost sense of passion and purpose by helping them look deep inside themselves for what they have lost. It is not easy work, but it is very rewarding. Once this work is done, the symptoms of depression are no longer needed.

Depression Counselor

Paul Kelner, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Certified Sex Addiction & Anger Management Therapist

Within driving distance of Ilchester

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.

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.

Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist

Depression can be a difficult topic to admit to, much less come to therapy for, but the courage it takes to make that call is your first step out of the darkness. Depression would like you to believe that no one can help you and that you're all alone, but it's not true - feeling that way is actually a symptom of depression itself! That's one reason why depression can be particularly insidious - it can make you feel like something is wrong with you at your core, and so make it hard for you to reach out for help. The truth is that depression is a condition that responds to proper therapy treatment, not a character flaw. Believe that and reach out for the help you deserve.

There are many forms of depression. Some people have a major depression needing both counseling and perhaps medication. Other people come in with low level depression or situational form following a loss or perhaps a trauma. Some people need to process their situation and see it from a different perspective along with exercise, connecting with other people, joining support groups, focusing on moments when they felt strong and competent. I will design, along with you, strategies to help manage the depression and bring hope back into your life.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy.

Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.
