When sadness becomes depression, ability to function and cope in day to day life becomes difficult. Through empathy and compassion in my work with people coping with depression I first endeavor to understand the current feelings presented. I examine early relationships and experiences that may continue to have an effect on present day mood. I also work with people to strategize ways to cope with sad moods when they occur and change lifestyle patterns and midsets in order to increase feelings of hope and joy.

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.

Sometimes we simply feel stuck in neutral. We can't move into drive and if we don't hold on tightly we so easily can fall back into reverse. Depression takes many forms and sometimes we don't even know that we are engulfed by it. But if you feel that you are so very alone and that no one can understand what you are going through perhaps talking to a Psychotherapist might be a good place to start. Try taking that first step because everyone needs someone to talk to.

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. Please visit my website at lhorowitz.com for more information about my practice.

Often depression is held in place by thoughts and beliefs that suck the hope out of one's life. Therapy is effective in finding the source of the problem and providing tools for intercepting and changing the problematic thought patterns. Medication may or may not be needed to get the process started. When one gains the ability to envision a rewarding life, it often ends the cycle of depression.

Have you ever had a day where you woke up and noticed that you just felt ‘off’ or down? Everyone experiences times in their life where they may feel more down. This is completely normal and expected. It can be caused from circumstances (e.g. stress at work, unemployment, death). Depression is different than just feeling down. Depression can look different on each individual person but our goal is to help you define what life would look like if you weren't feeling depressed and set goals to get you there. We work on changing the way we see and perceive the world and change our behaviors, to ultimately change how we feel.

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.

Depression can come from feelings of loss and isolation, loneliness and fear of being alone. Depression can also come from feeling just plain lousy about yourself!

Getting at the roots of your depression thorough various therapeutic approaches I am trained to use can be the answer for you. I can help you to pull yourself up by your bootstraps and see a better day. Whether your depression is a new and sudden feeling of sadness or has been with you as a life long struggle.

Depression is often the illness hiding in plain sight. It’s difficult to get help as depression has the ability to drain you of your will and sense of agency. I work with people suffering with moderate to severe depression. My approach is to find out what is happening now in your life that is causing you distress, your response to it, and also recognize any repetitions of events, relationships or behaviors which may be pulling you down. I work both short and long term. Symptom relief is the immediate goal, whereas a longer-term goal may be to identify any underlying issues triggering the depression.

330 west 58th Street, Suite 409, New York, New York

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

Helping you find wholeness...

124 East 40th Street, Ste 404, New York, New York

There is hope if you are unable to enjoy the things that used to give you pleasure or if you have a sense of sadnesss or hopelessness that just won't go away. We all feel sad from time to time, but depression is when this goes on over time and can affect all areas of your life and even lead to you feeling like giving up on life. Together, we can look at what is going on and explore ways (through discussion, actions and possibly involving a physician) to help you back to where you would want to be - where you can experience a sense of wholeness and peace. Christopher can help you on that journey.

Seeking therapy for depression is not an easy decision. It's hard to find the line between normal feelings of unhappiness and clinical depression. This is especially true since depressions makes it harder to make decisions and leaves you feeling like it's pointless to try new things. If you have been feeling low for more than two weeks and you have noticed other symptoms such changes in your sleeping or eating habits, then contact me to find out if therapy is the right choice. We will start therapy with a comprehensive evaluation to work out whether you have clinical depression and what is causing it. Then we'll use the most effective methods to alleviate your symptoms as soon as possible.

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.
