Depression Counselor

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

Licensed Clinical Christian Counselor

Within driving distance of Kemp Mill

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.

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.

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.

Depression is a suffering that takes the joy out of life and seems endless and hopeless. It drains your self-esteem. It is a sign of a problem but it makes solving problems more difficult. Sometimes medication can help, but psychotherapy is more effective. There are several approaches to getting out of depression and I would use all of them. We can work to notice and challenge depressing thoughts. We can work with underlying trauma or loss where you may have begun to feel depressed. I can also support you to take the kind of actions that lift your mood. You will learn ways of being more nourished and fulfilled.

Depression Counselor

Stacey Rempert, LCSW-C

Licensed Clinical Social Worker)

Within driving distance of Kemp Mill

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.

Depression Counselor

Angela Sarafin, LMFT

Licensed Therapist

We all have disappointments and failed dreams but sometimes depression sneaks up on us and steals the joy from even the small things. It is challenging to find the balance between struggling against versus giving in to the lethargy. I help people explore needs, wants, preferences and obligations in order to identify where to focus the current limited amounts of energy and what is most likely to create additional energy. I provide a safe space where you don't have to put on a fake smile, where you can talk about the things that everyone else is tired of hearing about, and where you can explore what your depression might be trying to tell you.

Depression Counselor

Jonathan Ladd, LCSW-C

Relationship Therapist for Couples and Singles

Within driving distance of Kemp Mill

Having worked my way through my own depression/hell on earth, with the help of a professional to 'guide' me, I have learned the importance of 'working together' in a way that combines use of: a) what I bring in the way of safety, empathy, presence, patience, curiosity, and practical tools; with b) your own ability to risk venturing into some dark & difficult territories -- dealing with demons such as: apathy, emptiness, meaninglessness, disappointment, disillusionment, hopelessness, stuckness, loneliness, shame, guilt, self-disgust, unmet expectations, unfulfilled dreams, losses, ambiguity, confusion, fallibility, fears, doubts, imperfections, insecurities and whatever others may emerge.

I have a great deal of experience helping clients who are going through feelings and symptoms of depression and/or anxiety. I use a variety of ways to guide clients to feel more content and happy. I use cognitive therapy with clients who tend to be perfectionists and/or are self-critical. I use gestalt therapy with clients who need to more fully express their feelings. I use hypnosis with clients who need to get in better touch with their inner strengths. Everyone deserves to feel good inside.

Depression Counselor

Laurel Fay, M.S., LCMFT

Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Kemp Mill

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.

We all experience ups and downs in life. This is normal and pat of living life. However, depression is characterized by feelings that are much more intense, let longer, and interfere more intensely with day-to-day functioning and interaction with other people. It is a serious condition that can impact every aspect of your life. It can affect your family relationships, work relationship, and impact negatively on your sense of self worth. Depression is very treatable. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is our primary approach to treating depression and it has been proven to be effective for most forms of depression and even to prevent the occurrence of future depressive episodes.

Depression Counselor

Christina Schultz, MA

Resident in Counseling, Supervised by Thomas Lamp, LPC

Within driving distance of Kemp Mill

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).
