Are you or your child suffering from depression? Are you feeling down or hopeless? Do you feel a lack of motivation or do you not take pleasure in activities that you usually enjoy? Do you feel stuck, unfulfilled or even wonder at times if life is not worth living? Depression is painful and debilitating, but you do not have to face it alone. Speaking with a caring therapist can help you feel better by speaking about your feelings and exploring new ways of understanding yourself and your problems. Ari has many years of experience helping individuals who struggle with depression. He appreciates the importance of "good fit" in the therapy relationship, which allows for change to occur.

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.

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.

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
