We all experience ups and downs in life. This is normal and pat of living life. However, depression is characterized by feelings that are much more intense, let longer, and interfere more intensely with day-to-day functioning and interaction with other people. It is a serious condition that can impact every aspect of your life. It can affect your family relationships, work relationship, and impact negatively on your sense of self worth. Depression is very treatable. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is our primary approach to treating depression and it has been proven to be effective for most forms of depression and even to prevent the occurrence of future depressive episodes.

Christina Schultz, MA

Resident in Counseling, Supervised by Thomas Lamp, LPC

New Directions Counseling, 150 S. Washington St Suite 303, Falls Church, VA, Falls Church, Virginia

I view depression from existential, cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, social learning, systems, and medical models. I view that shame, low self-concept, and deeper identity and existential issues often do underlie moderate and severe depression, and support SSRI or SNRI interventions for postpartum moms and clients with moderate to severe depression, with recurrence. I employ assessments and CBT homework assignments to help clients reduce their negative cognitive lens, and encourage client resilience through positive coping skills (e.g. exercise), meaning-making, and positive psychology exercises (e.g. gratitude and altruism).

Licensed Professional Counselor

450 West Broad Street Suite 315, Falls Church, Virginia

It is common to feel down or 'blue' at different points in our lives, when we are overwhelmed with stress, coping with a loss, or dealing with a difficult transition. When depression becomes chronic, it can be seen as a non-verbal way we communicate to ourselves and others around us a deeply personal message, which we may not be consciously aware of: I’m hurting, I feel helpless, I can’t accept something shameful. I work with you to understand what your depression means in the context of your history and how to use it to mobilize your self-awareness into greater alignment with your values, aspirations and goals. You benefit by becoming empowered to act and choose how you want to live.

Depression Counselor

Kristin Rosenthal, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

1707 Belle View Blvd C-1, Alexandria, Virginia

There are many varieties of depression, from the nearly universal experience of “blues” to soul-crushing, “can’t lift my head out of bed” depression. We help sort out the source of depression, which can include being emotionally “underfed”, to un-grieved losses, trauma experiences, biological disorders, family emotional inheritance, and a lack of connection with your inner source of guidance. After exploring the experience of depression, and the context of a client’s life, we collaboratively shape a plan of treatment, and carefully monitor progress. We coordinate with other care providers, such as physicians.

Depression Counselor

Mary Lou Lyon, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

6723 Whittier Avenue, Suite 406, McLean, Virginia

If you are feeling depressed, you are probably feeling disconnected from yourself, your relationships, your tasks and your responsibilities. You may be feeling sad, a sense of dread or a loss of hope in your future. My approach to therapy is to provide a supportive and compassionate place where you can talk about your pain, be understood and find new ways of coping with the difficulties you are facing. Sometimes simply sharing your sadness with another person can put you on the pathway to healing.

Depression Counselor

Mary L Lyon, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

6723 Whittier Avenue, Suite 406, McLean, Virginia

Depression is sometimes referred to as the "common cold" of mental health. At its root depression is about loss and loss always in some way has to do with love. In depression we lose a sense of connection to ourselves, to our relationships, to our tasks and even to God. In therapy, I provide a safe environment where you can face your sadness and loss, talk about it and reconnect in a caring place. Healing comes as deep pain is brought into loving and compassionate connection.

Feeling isolated, listless, and just plain down? Can't figure out what is going on? Or know what is going on but don't know what to do about it? People telling you to "just cheer up, look at your life it ain't that bad" or "Christians don't get depressed"? Well, they do. I hope that I can help you with your process of healing. I may not have all the answers, but I have an ear. Contact me.

You will learn how to live your life to the fullest.

Depression Counselor

Dr. Beverly Wright, (M.Div., M.Th.)

Licensed Clinical Christian Counselor

1629 K Street, N.W., Suite 300, Washington, District of Columbia

Depression is a cloud over one's life. For those afflicted with depression, please understand you are not alone. You are not going out of your mind, and the black cloud can be lifted. As a depressed Christian, don't feel ashamed. A sad truth is that many Christians attach spiritual failure to depression. So, they suffer in silence, hoping, and praying for deliverance. For clients wishing to be treated without habit forming drugs, I can assist in finding a reprieve, through Bibliotherapeutic, and God's earthly grown methods. If it is determined that medication is required, I can provide a referral. With both methodologies in place, the mind, body, and soul can be successfully restored.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

Our approach to therapy focuses on the whole person and not just the symptoms. We are trained in various treatments they may be used by themselves or in combination with others, depending on our client's needs. We find that most of our clients benefit from a combination of Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) to address depression. Psychodynamic Therapy will help you gain insight about how your emotions affect your behaviors. CBT also uncovers core beliefs, but it takes you a step further by helping you break those unhealthy thought/behavior patterns and replace with new ones. Contact us today to assess which approach is appropriate for you in managing depression.

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.
