Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been identified as the treatment of choice for depression. Whether you are on medication or not, CBT strategies can offer relief from the heavy weight of depressive symptoms. Kari's clients gain an understanding of what makes someone vulnerable to depression, how to increase motivation, energy, and positive mood. They will learn how to react to difficult situations with control and composure and better combat depressive tendencies in the future. Because teens display depression differently than adults, parents are often unsure about their son/daughter. Kari will provide an assessment and if necessary, a plan for effective treatment.

Licensed Psychologist

Depression is seen by some as a biochemical imbalance that is genetically transferred to the individual and can only be treated through medication. This might be part of the picture, but also a depressive, negative style of thinking can result in changes in the brain that bring about this unhealthy biochemical imbalance - and psychological treatment can change the thinking style that leads to this imbalance, rendering the individual to be free of reliance on medication and overall improved life that lasts on it's own merits.

Depression Therapist

Callan Olive, LAMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Carpentersville, IL

When 1 or both partners in a relationship are depressed, it can take a toll on the couple. It's very difficult to invest any energy or time into a relationship when you feel completely distant and overwhelmed by the day-to-day challenges you are up against. It's also difficult for a partner to really understand why depression is so intense and why it effects all of the different aspects of a relationship. I use research proven methods to help couples talk about their depression and what kind of impact it has had on them personally and on their relationship. You don't have to struggle with depression alone. Your partner can help you through it and I can show you how that works.

Depression Therapist

Donna Martino, LCPC, NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Carpentersville, IL

Sometimes people feel depresed and can atribute it to stressful events that have occured, other times people can't quite put their finger on why they feel depressed, they just know they're not happy, feel unmotivated, and in some cases hopeless and helpless. What we now know about neuroscience helps us understand how and why depression occurs. I will help you determine whether your depression can be improved through talk therapy combined with some changes to your daily routine or whether a clinical depression has set in that may respond well to medication too. I have a wonderful, caring Doctor I work with who will assess clinical depression and offer recommendaitons if necessary.

Pete Marcelo, LCSW, PhD

Clinical & School Psychologist / Clinical & School Social Worker

People suffering from depression have more negative thoughts about themselves, the world, and the future. Those who are depressed also tend to feel more helpless, hopeless and worthless. Research with depressed individuals suggests that treatment focusing on changing peoples’ thought (cogntive behavioral therapy) is a particularly effective treatment for depression. CBT as part of a comprehensive treatment plan is a very effective approach to treating depression.

Licensed Professional Counselor

At some point in life, most individuals experience some level of depressive symptoms. Some symptoms can be circumstantial to an experience or loss, other symptoms have been a part of life for a long time and may be chemical in nature, requiring a referral for medication. In addition, depression can also have spiritual components. Exploring the elements of depression and finding ways to find joy, even in the small things, is where I love to help clients.
