Sadness vs. Depression? Which is it? Treatable YES! Everyone feels sad or 'blue' on occassion. People tend to grieve over a loss, but usually, the feelings of grief tend to lessen over time. Depression occurs when feelings of extreme sadness or despair last for at least 2 weeks or longer and tend to interfere with activities of everyday living. Deperessed feelings include helplessness, hopelessness and even thoughts of death and possibly suicide. People with these feelings may feel overwhelmed. Causes may be from body chemistry which influence mood and thought. Chronic illness can accompany depression. Start feeling better. Give me a call and make an appointment now. Dr. Sobo

Most of us get depressed at times in our lives. Sometimes, we need some guidance to help us through these difficult periods. I believe that the client/therapist relationship is very important in dealing with depression. If you make the decision to seek psychotherapy to help you deal with your depression, I think it is necessary to find a therapist that you can relate to. I work very hard to establish that bond and then explore your history and reasons why the depression exists. Using various techniques, my goal is to help you gain insight into your issues, learn better coping skills and ways of thinking and then help you move forward in your life to attain your goals.

Can’t get out of bed? Unmotivated? No energy? Sleeping too much? Isolating? Depression can be so debilitating! But it doesn’t have to be. You can feel better. You can find healing from depression and live the life that you are meant to live. My approach is one of mindfulness. We will address how mind, body, and emotion are interconnected. You will learn how your reactions to the depressive spiral is what actually caused the damage and how your efforts to get out of depression keep you stuck in the pain you are trying to escape. Do you find that nothing you do seems to help make the depression go away? This is because trying to solve what is “wrong” with you just makes things worse!

Many clients who come to therapy are suffering from depression at some level. Often, "talk therapy" is sufficient to help them overcome negative thinking and get back on track. Sometimes, the feelings of sadness or hopelessness are the result of a recent (or distant) life event. Other clients report having always experienced life in this way. Depending on the circumstances and the severity of the symptoms, a referral to a physician for a consultation about medication is necessary. Even in those cases, having a trusted, experienced counselor to talk to on a regular basis (in conjunction with the use of medications), can be invaluable.

I will compassionately and supportively help you to identify and get to the root of the underlying thoughts, feelings and experiences in your life which may be contributing to your depression. In an atmosphere of non-judgment, you will begin to explore, process, and integrate these contributing factors, allowing you to feel a new sense of peace, lightness, and optimism.
