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.

I work with many clients facing varying degrees of depression and who are having difficulty coming out of it on their own. I seek to help them better understand what they are feeling and the varying causes and triggers leading to it. I also, work with clients to help them mobilize themselves out of it, working towards their individual goals and developing ways that they can improve their moods.

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.

In sessions, we will explore the ways in which your symptoms are affected by your relationships, including family and friends. You are given the opportunity to focus on the meaningful relationships in your life and how they may be contributing to your symptoms of depression. As these relationships are developed or improved, inter-personal connection is strengthened. This sense of support or emotional connection proves critical in alleviating depression. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is used to target negative thoughts, emotions, and actions that contribute to your depression. You will learn modulated, positive, and effective emotional responses to whatever life brings your way.

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.

The number one priority I have when working with clients who are depressed is to help them see that they can learn how to cope with and manage paralyzing thoughts and feelings that hold them back in life. My clients and I work together to develop and implement several strategies to replace the negative, irrational and unrealistic thoughts they have with positive, rational and realistic ones. I also work with clients on exploring and understanding the underlying issues that may be contributing to their current feelings and problems. Through this process, clients stop repeating self defeating and self sabotaging behaviors to pursue and achieve their life goals.

Dr. Vaughan has successfully worked with patients suffering from depression for fifteen years. Depression can lead to low self-esteem, low energy, reduced concentration and motivation, suicidal thoughts, irrational guilt, and unwanted changes in sleep and appetite. Therapy can reverse these symptoms by addressing behaviors and thoughts that reinforce them. Dr. Vaughan also engages in active problem-solving with patients to help them change life circumstances and aspects of relationships that might perpetuate depression.

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
