It is said that depression is anger turned inward. This is often true. It is also true that depression can be biological and physiological. We assess your depression through a depression inventory and identify what is best for you in terms of talk therapy or medication and/or both. Untreated depression leads to it getting worse causing folks to act on their suicidal thoughts and behaviors. It doesn't have to get that far. Help is available.

Depression is like one of those big boxes labeled “TEAM LIFT.” It’s a lot easier to handle when you have someone to help out. Let us help you lift the weight of depression

Depression is one of the most misunderstood of all the emotional difficulties. Often it is described as a medical condition, due to chemical imbalances in the brain that require treatment through medication. And while this is sometimes true, in the vast majority of the cases depression is a natural condition, in response to stressors and unresolved problems in life. In most instances, medication treats the symptoms of depression, but not the causes and thus the factors causing depression will remain, untreated and dependent on drugs to keep them at bay. Good therapy successfully treats the causes of depression, thus relieving the symptoms of depression. It is work, but healing is permanent.

Franklin Sollars, and Associates

Licensed Psychologist

Treatment of depression is designed to help patients explore the full range of their emotions, including feelings they may not be aware of. By making the nonconscious elements of their life a part of their present experience, therapy helps people understand how their behavior and mood are affected by unresolved issues and unconscious feelings. This can lead to a reduction in depression and an increase in positive feelings.

One of my favorite trick questions to ask patients hospitalized for depression was, "Is the sky ever grey?" Even though most of the time I TOLD them it was a trick question, they usually said, "Yes." Just like the sky only looks grey because clouds are covering up the sun, we can often FEEL "grey" when depression is covering us. My goal is to help you to get rid of the cloud so that your life can be what it was intended to be.

There is always a sense of helplessness in depression. In therapy we explore why you feel depressed and what keeps you in a depressed place. Depressive symptoms serve various purposes that we will uncover and understand. Through this process, you become stronger, and realize that you have much more control than you had believed. Recognizing and exercising this control will ultimately diminish your depressive perspective.

What you can benefit from when I treat you for depression is a healthier life with more hope and happiness.

Symptoms of depression include: feeling down in the dumps, changes in sleep, appetite or sex drive, crying spells, feeling hopeless, not wanting to do things you used to enjoy, withdrawing from people. Anger can also be a sign of depression. Some folks who are severely depressed can’t get out of bed or brush their teeth. Some folks even think about or consider suicide as an option. If you are feeling this way, you need not suffer alone. Research shows that psychotherapy is as effective as medication in treating depression. With regular ongoing psychotherapy, I will help you get a plan of action to move slowly and steadily toward your goals, and reclaim your hope again!

Depression is often caused by the negative experiences which have impacted us. Instead of avoiding the negatives experiences we need to understand them. However, often what happens is that too many individuals are focused on the negative. When that occurs the negative usually expands. Learning to minimize the negative and expan the positive is one insightful tool everyone should use. Depression is something I personally have struggled with in my personal life so I have my own insights to share in conquering depression.
