Whether you are in the depths of depression or mildly depressed, I will tune into the underlying causes, help you understand how these are having an impact on you, make a caring connection with you, and you will most likely feel hope. Every person's needs are different, and I therefore work differently with each person. Some people will benefit from medication, but I very rarely insist on that route. I help some by doing walking therapy--get moving, talk while walking. I have helped others get into meditation. I make myself available, and some meet more than once a week, which gives us the opportunity to deepen our work. Being understood and feeling safe here will benefit you.

I use a variety of approaches to help clients overcome depression. I work towards helping clients of all ages identify and express feelings, and then employ healthy coping skills to make life feel less overwhelming. By definition, depression is a feeling of hopelessness and helplessness. I aim to help clients feel more empowered, and take concrete steps to reach goals that improve self-esteem and promote well-being. I work with all ages, and have a great deal of experience helping children and adolescents as well as other mothers. My style is warm and accepting!

Sometimes depression is based in chemical imbalances in our brains. Sometimes depression is caused by the situations in our lives. Learning how to cope with depression is a skill that can be learned and practiced. The pain of depression is often disabling. However, the beliefs we have and the choices we make today can make the difference tomorrow. Medication is not always necessary and is never enough for healing for the pain of depression. I will offer support and techniques to guide you through those dark and depressed times. Life can be filled with joy, hope and serenity. Learn how positive living and positive thinking breaks through the darkness of depression.

My work with clients who experience depression involves the identification of one's 'internal working model' or lens that filters one's experience of self, other, and life in general. Persistent, negative thoughts about oneself ('I am worthless'), the other ('People cannot be trusted') and the future ('there is no hope that things will change') shape experience and relationships thus perpetuating a negative cycle. Experience of self and other within a safe, nonjudgemental, strength based working relationship fosters movement towards trust, self-worth and hope.

Depression Counselor

Terri DiMatteo, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

I believe that depression is nature’s way of shutting us down when there is some element in our life or our past that overwhelms and burdens us. It is often something experienced that our usual ways of coping cannot remedy. A client experiencing depression is often ‘turning off’, ‘shutting down’ and going inward in response to something in their life or in their relationships that is just too much to bear. I help depressed clients discover what it is in their life that is overwhelming them and help them find the strength and power to directly face the matter that is causing the turn inward and the shutting down.

Depression Counselor

Wendi Dumbroff, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

I work with many people with depression whether as individuals, or in the context of couples therapy. I help people to become aware of their thoughts, feelings, and the experience they have in their bodies around their depression. I work cognitively and behaviorally to help them understand distorted thinking. I also work to "externalize" the feeling of depression, and help people understand that, "you are not your thoughts." Depression may be visiting you, but you are not depression. Mindfulness is a tool I use with depression to help people understand what is happening to them in the moment, and to begin to open to emotions that may be blocked.

We welcome adult clients into our practice at any time. We also specialize in teens. Many parents call us to find effective alternatives to more intensive therapy such as Intensive Outpatient (IOP) or Partial Care Programs (PCP). In our setting, we can provide individual and family therapy 1-2 times per week in addition to providing teen group therapy. This may be the just the right amount of therapy for your teen. We will then recommend when the time is right to reduce the number of sessions to once per week.

The psychological component of depression usually includes an expreience of "hitting up against a brick wall" or "feeling deeply stuck in the mud." Not being able to get going, or having become totally numb to events or relationships are also common. Your therapist seeks to help you get in touch with your real self and reconnect with what matters. The work might be discussing whether and how to rebuild or strengthen your relationships. Or, the work might be focused on reconfiguring your goals and establishing better patterns in your life to help unstick yourself, releasing attachments to unhealthy addictions and relinquishing ties to unrealistic aspirations.

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 is very difficult to address on ones own. Often clients don't know its depression as their thoughts and feelings almost begin to feel normal. They forget about how life once was and need a help in climbing out of the dark hole that they feel there in. I will use few different approaches including referrals for medication when a client feels they are ready or request it.
