Depression Therapy

Take that first step toward peace and happiness.

Depression is…

Common:

One out of ten people will report depression at some point in their lives (and that’s just the people who recognize it and report it).

Quietly destructive:

It wastes lives, because lives are kept small, and opportunities wasted, because of the depression. It costs money because careers are hamstrung. It contributes to illness and early death because it has a variety of damaging impacts on the body.

Highly treatable:

Depression is one of the most common reasons people seek therapy, and one of the things therapy is particularly good at treating. There are lots of things we can do to depression around and get life moving forward again, often quite rapidly.

Is Therapy Right For Me?

If you’re depressed, you might be:

Feeling…

– Listless. Heavy. Hopeless. Grim. Flat. Stuck. Helpless. Angry. Just unhappy.

Thinking…

– Repetitively, about what is wrong with situations, what is wrong with you, or what is wrong with the other people in your life.

– About death or suicide.

– And spinning off into self-criticism a lot.

Acting…

– Avoidant of challenges because you’re “not up for it.”

– Stuck in a rut.

– Withdrawn from other people.

– Irritable, or even prone to anger or rage.

– Drawn to substance abuse or other compulsive behavior, from TV binging to porn addiction.

There are many ways of thinking and behaving that actually feed your depression, like circular self-criticism, procrastination, or avoidance of others. These patterns create and feed depression. We want to step in, interrupt the repetitive patterns, and help you feel the pull toward feeling better.

We can help.

We will assess:

– How you think, and what you do

– The body. Everything from recent lab values to sleep to diet to exercise.

– Relationships. Because getting relationships working can be the fast-track to relieving anxiety.

And we will intervene.

You will:

– Develop the simple habits that can make you feel much, much better.

– Challenge and interrupt destructive thought reruns.

– Find increasingly better ways to connect with other people.

– Do one little thing after another that will quiet the anxiety, and free you to get on with your life.

You really can get there from here.
