Depression Counselor

Joanne Gerr, LCSW

Licensed Psychotherapist and Adult Educator

324 Raritan Avenue, Suite 111, Highland Park, New Jersey

Depression is often controlled by our unconscious feelings, thoughts, memories, and dreams. Drawing on Positive Psychology and other therapeutic models, I help clients to understand how we relive early experiences unconsciously, and I coach them on behavioral techniques they can use to overcome the vicious cycle of negativity and change their present. These include a blend of empirically based techniques clients can use at work or at home to overcome depression, end self-sabotage, and get unstuck.

Do you feel helpless, stuck, or hopeless? Did these feelings happen suddenly or did they gradually creep in, taking the joy out of life?

We find what is causing your depression and create a path to finding happiness and joy.

Depression Counselor

Terri DiMatteo, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

111 Quimby Street , Westfield, New Jersey

I believe that depression is nature’s way of shutting us down when there is some element in our life or our past that overwhelms and burdens us. It is often something experienced that our usual ways of coping cannot remedy. A client experiencing depression is often ‘turning off’, ‘shutting down’ and going inward in response to something in their life or in their relationships that is just too much to bear. I help depressed clients discover what it is in their life that is overwhelming them and help them find the strength and power to directly face the matter that is causing the turn inward and the shutting down.

James Chitty, LCSW Psychoanalyst.

LCSW, Psychoanalyst.

189 Elm Street, 3rd Floor, Westfield, New Jersey

Our developmental history combined with how we currently cope with life on life's terms can frequently lead to depressive functioning, sometimes for significant periods of time. Expanding our responses to conflict can lead to significant improvement in the quality of life. Exploring how developmental history and associated defensive functioning leads to some forms of depression can be a fruitful journey leading to a contentment never thought possible. Insight, empathy and professional guidance delivered in a paced manner is crucial in this journey towards a more fulfilling life. A trusting and warm therapeutic relationship is the prerequisite for this liberating process to occur.

Depression Counselor

Michael Barmak, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

347 Lincoln Avenue East, Cranford, New Jersey

I help my clients learn how to let go of their depression and replace it with acceptance and joy. Depression often occurs when we take situations and others' behavior personally. When we think they mean something about our self-worth. You can learn how to define your own self-worth and not allow anything outside yourself to determine your mood. I can help you learn how to take better care of yourself by learning to heal the deeper feelings underneath your depression like sadness, helplessness and loneliness.

Marion Rollings, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

236 West High Street, Bound Brook, New Jersey

Depression can be debilitating, but it can also be a dull ache that underlies one's everyday activities. You may appear to be doing "fine" but underneath it all, there is a depressed feeling that does not go away. Using an integrative approach, I can help you work through the underlying issues while addressing the day to day challenges. Seasonal depression or Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is also a common and highly treatable depressed state that is often seen in the colder, darker months and around holidays.

Depression Counselor

Steven Sussman, Ph.D

Licensed NJ & NY Psychologist

615 Sherwood Pkwy, Mountainside, NJ, New Jersey

Children and adolescents who act out due to symptoms of AD/HD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, and School Underachievement constantly receive negative feedback from parents, teachers, and peers. This results in underlying feelings of helplessness and hopelessness leading to depression. I motivate such children to develop self-control which leads to improved academic and social skills. This leads to social acceptance and academic achievement and self-esteem rises. Helplessness and hopelessness dissipate and depression and anxiety lessen.

Depression Counselor

Wendi Dumbroff, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

2 Green Village Rd. Suite 202, Madison, New Jersey

I work with many people with depression whether as individuals, or in the context of couples therapy. I help people to become aware of their thoughts, feelings, and the experience they have in their bodies around their depression. I work cognitively and behaviorally to help them understand distorted thinking. I also work to "externalize" the feeling of depression, and help people understand that, "you are not your thoughts." Depression may be visiting you, but you are not depression. Mindfulness is a tool I use with depression to help people understand what is happening to them in the moment, and to begin to open to emotions that may be blocked.
