Anxiety & depression are frequently interconnected and can have challenging effects on our personal and professional lives. Finding evidence based strategies to counter the negative thought patterns we have can become a valuable tool for our recovery. Together we can explore these patterns and find strategies to replace them with more positive and nurturing patterns.

In adulthood, our closest relationship is often with our spouse, partner, or significant other. When chronic conflict invades this relationship, it can become difficulty to find joy and contentment in life. Our practice works with couples in which one or both partners are experiencing depression. We believe that as the relationship heals and partners learn strategies for respecting and valuing one another's needs and desires, symptoms of depression will be alleviated. Call/text us at 516-387-5143 for a free 15 minute consultation to see if we're a good fit for your needs.

Being depressed is often undermined and minimized. It is more than sadness, there are changes in your sleep, appetite, perceptual changes in your view of the world, and relationships surrounding you. You may also experience a sense of hopelessness, fatigue, loss of interest, irritability, and feelings of guilt. I can help you recognize your depressive symptoms, teach you how to cope with them and make changes to improve your daily functioning,

Everyone that experiences deep depression or even circumstantial depression benefits from counseling and therapy. Therapy can immensely assist an individual that is depressed by tracking the root evils and causes of the depression. By looking at the situation as a whole, I help a person to find what makes them sad, and I also teach them to cope, overcome, and find the positive things that will help them overcome depression and help them see the brighter things in their future and life.

Depression is anger turned inward or against yourself. As anger builds within, an individual has three choices: To channel the anger energy assertively by expressing the feelings attached to the situations causing one to feel depressed; to express the anger through outbursts that can be very destructive to the self and others; to internalize the anger and become more depressed and less functional with time. My job is to enable you to learn how to identify and express feelings that are causing you to feel depressed. The next step is to change behaviors associated with your feelings freeing you from depressive thoughts and feelings.

If you have a pulse and a heart, you have been sad. Using the science of happiness rather than standard interventions for depression we focus on increasing positive emotion, engagement, and meaning rather than directly targeting depressive symptoms. In using these interventions with clients I have noted the effects of these interventions in a variety of settings. In informal and clinical settings these interventions have commonly been reported to me and referred to as “life-changing.”

Depression is a feeling that can feel incredibly heavy to hold. Sometimes we experience challenging life events that leave us feeling much sadness, grief, inner pain and lack of joy, which interfere with our daily functioning. That is called depression. With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (challenging unhelpful thoughts) and psychodynamic modalities, I can help you work through that sadness, heaviness and pain, so that you may begin the journey of healing work. This is the first step towards holding the sadness, addressing yourself in a safe space so we can slowly help you process and shift to start feeling lighter and start seeing the sunshine and tasting the small joys in everyday life.

It can often seem like society expects us to be happy and positive at all times, that any admission of sadness or a loss of motivation, energy, or engagement with life is a personal failure. But Depression isn't a personal failure, and it is also more than just "feeling sad". If you find yourself down in the hole of disconnection, surrounded by a fog that is interfering with your life and relationships, you need a hand to help you climb out. A trained therapist understands the mechanics of depression and can help you understand it and find strategies to make your way up and out of it, and back into the light. Please contact me so we can begin to work on this process together.

Depression means sadness that may result in crying or may simply steal your happiness. It may be difficult for you to function throughout your day, to think positive thoughts, to make decisions or to enjoy anything. It also involves low energy, sleep and eating disturbances and isolation. I help my clients get through their depression by finding out who they are, seeing how they can regain self-confidence, acting like a mirror to reflect your best qualities and helping regain feelings of connectedness. Simultaneously, each symptom is worked on by determining coping skills to match the problem in strength and intensity.

Experiencing depression can be particularly trying on a person. At times, many individuals in your life may not understand what depression is or why you "can't snap out of it". It is crucial to understand that depression is not a choice and with time, effort, and the right treatment approach, you can work toward minimizing depressive symptoms and returning to your own personal level of success and happiness.

I work with a depressed nervous system by working with the body. Often we struggle to sleep, eat, or accomplish relatively simple tasks. Our bodies are stuck with the brake on. When our body thinks it is futile, out mind follows quickly thereafter and we begin to tell ourselves how pointless things are and how worthless we are. I work with the whole body to re-regulate the body to enable you to get back to a whole integrated self.

Sometimes depression is a chronic feeling of loss of energy, sadness, and inability to take action. At times, it can be triggered by certain situations in life. Depending on the specifics for an individual, help may consist of working with internal beliefs or may consist of working to improve a life situation, or a combination of these. I get to know the client, finding out how they experience the depression, what is going on in their life, what may have first started the depression, and what thoughts they experience. I can also work in conjunction with a psychiatrist where needed. Therapy interactions help the client see and embrace more positive and effective thoughts and energies.

Depression can be used for strength and positive. Experience how!
