There is a wide continuum that constitutes depression. We all have "bad days" or an occasional case of the "blues," but if you rarely experience any joy in life, if more often than not, it is shear drudgery to get up and face the day, or if your situation feels hopeless, then you may well be suffering from clinical depression. I'll help you identify the source of the depression, and we'll work together to resolve it. If medication seems appropriate (rarely my first choice), I can refer you for medication evaluation.

Depression can mean very different things for different people. My goal as a therapist is to help you understand the unique underlying cause(s) of your depression so that you can make lasting changes. I will use a combination of insight oriented, psycho-dynamic tools to help understand why your depression is occurring along with more interactive tools such as mindfulness and mind/body connection to support immediate relief from depressive symptoms.

Depression can be a lonely and isolating experience. It can also be managed successfully with coping skills and the proper supports. I focus on self esteem building and addressing the painful self talk that might be adding to the depression cycle. Depression is also different for every individual and coming to understand how and why your depression impacts your life will be a major step in learning how to manage it and live a fulfilled hopeful life.

Depression can distort your view of yourself, your future and the world, leaving you feeling hopeless, guilty or worthless. If you are depressed, you know that it is impossible to "just snap out of it." Research shows that depression disrupts the optimal chemical balance in the brain and changing that is not easy, but therapy is an important part of effective treatment. It is important to recognize ways of thinking or relating to others that hold depression in place; then it is possible to grow in the freedom to think, feel and relate to others differently. These small changes lay the foundation for more growth and healing, and give you the courage to risk new ways of relating.

If you’re struggling with depressive symptoms, therapy is a critical part of relief. The first step is being heard & then assessed. Is this a new experience or a familiar one? Has it been triggered by a specific situation? The next, is identifying & replacing negative coping strategies & thoughts with positive alternatives. In addition to identify negative thought patterns, it’s vital to understand where these beliefs came from & work to reframe unhealthy views of the self & others. Know that I’m not someone who immediately suggests medication to everyone. A certain level of discomfort prompts us to change. However, when medication is needed, I'll work closely with your PCP or psychiatrist.

No matter how long you have been suffering from depression, you can free yourself mind, body and spirit. When you identify the negative self-talk that gets you down and consistently challenge that self-talk, ultimately replacing it with positive self-talk, you feel better about yourself and your life. When you get out and begin doing things that give you pleasure, your mood improves When you connect with the unconditional love and healing power of your own inner knowing, you transform old patterns and create a life of greater peace and contentment.

We all do our best to have an abundance of hope in our lives. Sometimes circumstances, emotional wreckage and frustration prevent our reaching our goals and expectations. By identifying the emotional toll charged by an endless cycle of frustration, a personal plan of growth will be put in place. This approach short-circuits frustration and provides hope now and into tomorrow. Dr. Eljay has 20 years of counseling experience in lessening this burden.

Depression has many different forms & causes. It often involves anger at oneself, guilt and shame. Depression is sometimes related to life events in which one has been hurt, and treatment may center on facing and resolving the effect these experiences have had on you. Many kinds of emotional losses may lead to depression. Relationships with others and feelings about oneself are often painful in depression; these feelings can be worked through and resolved in therapy. Depression can be severe and present for a long time-- often tied to childhood experiences-- before one reaches the point of seeking help.

We are social beings. If our interactions with others are difficult or conflicted, depression can result. We may feel hopeless, isolated, sad, irritated, even worthless. In a safe, empathetic environment, I help clients to identify relationship patterns which fuel their depressive symptoms, and to change problematic ways of relating to others as well as to themselves. When our relationships are going well, we feel better about ourselves, we engage in activities, we increase our mood. We enjoy living!

Although all human beings are susceptible to feeling bouts of sadness, depression is unique in that it comes with a specific set of symptoms and is a disorder that may be persistent. Depression may arise as the result of a specific event that has happened or trauma or for no specific reason. Regardless of the reason, depression may have serious consequences if gone untreated. I can help you work through it through mindfulness and talk therapy. Together, we will help identify core beliefs and maladaptive behaviors in your life that may be keeping you stuck in the negative cycle.

Depression Counselor

Walter Matweychuk, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

My approach attacks depression by quickly focusing in on the primary cause of depression. I show people how their current beliefs about their adversities, past and present, are the primary cause of depression. I teach people how it is well within their power to adopt, without delay, alternative beliefs that help them cope with and prevail over these adversities. I also show my patient how to feel worthwhile and adequate even if she is depressed and performing poorly in life. Often self-downing goes with feelings of depression and makes for depression over being depressed. REBT tackles the rut of depression by attacking both the original and the secondary feelings of depression.
