Depression is a big umbrella word today to describe a large tree of disorders that fall under the general rubric of a low mood. For some people depression is something that follows them around and never disappears completely. For others depression is accompanied by the change in weather and is particularly disabling in the winter months when there is less sun. Working in talk therapy together with a psychiatric consultation and possible medication is the gold standard to treat depression. I work together with psychiatrists when needed to alleviate my patients depression and allow for the talk therapy to be more effective.

Depression Counselor

Mitchell Milch, LCSW

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

Within driving distance of Monsey

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.

It's my aim to decrease depressive suffering: PSYCHOTHERAPY is the first-line intervention for intransigent dark mood states and moderate levels of depression. I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to redirect a depressed person's negative beliefs toward positive thoughts and attainable goals. CBT teaches and helps you maintain comfortable behaviors and interactions that restore normal moods and awaken your enthusiasm for life. I add PSYCHOANALYTIC APPROACHES since these techniques help depressed individuals heal from critical problems arising from childhood traumas. Particularly those that are dysregulating current relationships and that complicate overall life and love adjustments.

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.

Zalman Nelson, LMSW

Licensed Professional Therapist

Depression is often a "check engine" light that there are things we love and enjoy doing, are good at, our passions and interests – but we aren't doing them or making time for them. It leaves a hole in our life..often filled by unhealthy, downer stuff. We aren't powerless; we are empowered to identify those needs and wants and joys, and make them happen. Overcoming depression takes feeling I'm behind the steering wheel of my life. Often, we just need a start, a push, a move in a good direction, and get the ball rolling – the depression fades, or becomes far easier to handle.

Nikki DiFranks, PhD, MA, MS, LCSW-R

Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

Within driving distance of Monsey

In my biography on Theravive, I describe how I utilize an integrated combination of cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic modalities. That is, I tailor each treatment plan to the needs of the individual. Some patients wish to make connections between past experiences and current depression, and in this case it is appropriate to revisit the past to recognize its psychodynamic influence on current maladaptive behaviors. Other patients take a purely cognitive behavioral position on their experienced depression, wanting to be grounded in the present and move forward with problem-solving techniques and strategies. I also work with two psychiatrists who may prescribe medication where needed.
