We all feel sad or “down” occasionally, however, if someone feels sad all or most of the time, has a loss of interest in their favorite activities of life, feels worthless or guilty for no reason, feels life is empty and meaningless, he or she may be in the midst of a serious depression. A good rule of thumb is that, if someone feels this way every day for two weeks, it’s time to call a therapist. Together we can properly evaluate if you or your loved one is suffering from major depression or Low-Grade Depression (Dysthymia), whether the depression may be recurrent or may be part of a Bipolar Disorder, and how it can be helped by therapy and/or medication

Depression is defined as a mood disorder that so many people experience nowadays. It can be induced for many reasons such as grief/loss or even be environmentally based. Depression is when you feel persistent bouts of sadness and hopelessness. You will often lose interest in activities that you once enjoyed, have a loss of appetite, feel fatigue and withdraw socially. Things that once seemed easy may feel difficult to do now. At Emerge, you will regain your emotional and physical strength by exploring and becoming knowledgeable about the triggers that cause your depression. Together, we refocus and define your goals to becoming emotionally and physically well again.

I work with many clients who struggle with different kinds of depression. Sometimes it is related to a difficult life event or events. Sometimes it is biologically-based. Other times it may be both. While medication may be warranted in many cases, it is just one piece of the puzzle. My therapeutic style involves respectful probing of the source of the pain and sadness. Many people feel unable to move on from a particular event so I work hard to help my clients release themselves from their pain and agony. You deserve peace and happiness.

There is hope if you are experiencing intense feelings of hopelessness and despair. However, first you need to learn about the new advances in neuroscience that emphasize the role of the brain in how you feel. Let me help you to develop insight into what triggers unhealthy, self-critical thoughts and self-defeating patterns of behavior.

The number one priority I have when working with clients who are depressed is to help them see that they can learn how to cope with and manage paralyzing thoughts and feelings that hold them back in life. My clients and I work together to develop and implement several strategies to replace the negative, irrational and unrealistic thoughts they have with positive, rational and realistic ones. I also work with clients on exploring and understanding the underlying issues that may be contributing to their current feelings and problems. Through this process, clients stop repeating self defeating and self sabotaging behaviors to pursue and achieve their life goals.

Depression and sadness, though sometimes quite serious, are also a part of our human experience. I have a deep appreciation for our depressions; from light malaise, apathy and low energy, to and deep, dark places. It is important to normalize as much as possible, examine what our beliefs of happiness are, and to understand our emotions and what triggered and triggers them. We are not simply what we feel in the moment, and things do, get better. I am here for you, to examine, advise and suggest, but most importantly to listen and take seriously your pain. To be here for you.

At the Lukin Center, take an individual approach to depression by tailoring evidence-based treatments to each person's specific needs. We use cognitive behavioral techniques to help clients meet their goals, change their ways of thinking, and ultimately feel better. While our therapists work with all clients, some of them have particular areas of expertise, including working with men and with adolescents with depression. Our therapists are sensitive to the issues most commonly faced by these groups and are able to tailor therapy to best meet their needs.

Depression can create feelings of sadness, fatigue, restlessness, and a lack of enjoyment in things that you just can't move beyond. It can get in the way of basic tasks (eating, sleeping, getting out of bed), or sometimes you can get to the things you need to, but just don't "feel like yourself". Depression is not a sign of weakness, and seeking help is a sign of strength. The worthlessness, helplessness, hopelessness, and sometimes thoughts of ending your life, can all be helped with treatment. We can work together on understanding your depression, making small changes, and finding ways to help you move forward in your life. Take the next step and schedule a consultation to get started

When depressed we lack the energy and motivation to care for ourselves as if we are undeserving or incapable of loving ourselves. Often, depression signifies that we feel hopeless and helpless to be happy with ourselves and/or create a happier life for ourselves. The answer lay with mourning the loss of what we mistakenly believed was indispensable to looking ahead with hopeful optimism. Our relationship will provide the support to help you let go of these self limiting beliefs, while encouraging you and guiding you to develop your inner resources, and take advantage of resources available to you.

Depression is painful, it can disrupt many areas of your life-- from personal relationships, work, organization and cleanliness, your sleep, appetite, and sex life. It can even make someone not want to go on. It is one of the most common problems I treat. Despite how common and painful it can be, there is good news. There are a number of highly effective treatments for depression supported by science. I utilize Cognitive Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Behavioral Activation, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and when appropriate some skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I also incorporate physical exercise and meditation when appropriate.

Most depressed clients feel trapped by the circumstances that life has presented them. By introducing some elegantly simple tools, you will discover that there are openings (physically and energetically) that can dissolve frustrating anxiety/depression. Importantly, you become aware of perceptions and experiences not previously available to you. The tools/exercises that we use in session experientially shift us out of our everyday minds - This allows us access to another intelligence within a naturopathic pathway supported by our bodies, our hearts and nature.

Almost everyone suffers from some depression in their lives. But some people experience it at a much deeper level and have more difficulty coping with it. When it lingers or gets really bad, therapy is a place to begin to try and understand where it is coming from and work on ways to cope with it and find ways to possibly overcome it. My approach is active as it combines traditional talk therapy with solution oriented therapy.

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 a life challenge that is shared by many of us and treated in a variety of ways. Letting go of self blame and regret may be your need. Examining past history and increasing or altering perspective about how this affects your self worth may bring relief. Addressing present thought patterns and how they relate to mood and behavior is practical and beneficial. But, receiving consistent support by a trained, compassionate and dedicated professional who will remain by your side through attempts to change may be the most important and positive step toward relieving depression and that is what I bring to our sessions.

This is a broad broad category. There are as many things that people call depression, and as many kinds of depressed people, as there are shades of color. The first step is to rule out physical problems – there are several that masquerade as depression – and then to rule out the simple solutions. Any good self-help book or website can give you advice on coping with the inertia that is so problematic in depression. If those are not helping enough, it is time for a careful assessment of your particular brand of what you might be calling depression. It can involve any mixture of anger, resentment, internal pressure, fear, and more. How we handle all that depends on what we find

The cause of depression is a mixture of nature and nurture. Part of it is biologically, embedded in our DNA, and part of it is circumstantial, depending on the hardships and stress we go thru in life. Sometimes we might need anti depression medication, specially when the biologic component is the main cause of one's depression. However, when it's caused mainly my external factors, Psychotherapy alone is effective, and will help you be sour happy self again.
