My work with depression consists largely on quick relieving of the depressive symptoms (i.e., intense sadness, lack of energy) and then, if the individual has a history of repeated depressions, an in-depth exploration to help the individual understand how she/he developed the depression and why it continues to occur. This self-knowledge is essential in arming the individual so they can reduce recurrences of the depressive symptoms (at least at their usual intensity), and to some extent in shifting their personality patterns away from the self-criticism and despair associated with depression.

Each year millions of Americans struggle with depression, an illness that comes in many forms—from major depression and seasonal affective disorder, to dysthymia and bipolar disorder. Depression is an illness that increasingly afflicts people worldwide, interfering with many aspects of everyday functioning. It is a complex disorder, involving many systems of the body. However, depression is highly treatable. Many studies show that the most effective treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy, which addresses problematic thought patterns, with or without the use of antidepressant drugs.
