Depression Treatment

We believe in taking a holistic approach to treating depression. We want to work with you at your pace to help you achieve your goals.

Depression

Depression can be driven by a multitude of factors including genetics, biochemical abnormalities, trauma, environmental, family of origin, relationships, and lifestyle choices. If you are struggling with depression, you are not alone and we can help. Even if you have a genetic predisposition for it, or traumatic experiences in your life that have shaped your depression, there are practical things that can be done to help you get better.

When working with a therapist, you will be able to tailor a support plan for your needs and personality. Therapy can help you explore the contributing factors to depression, identify things that help to reduce depression, and adopt coping skills. Examples of coping skills include engaging in relationships, exercising, and eating a healthy diet. If you continue to be stuck a therapist can help you decide if a referral to a psychiatrist for medication could be warranted. We can also explore challenges in your thinking process around unhelpful thoughts and distorted perceptions that could be feeding your view of yourself, circumstances, and the world around you.

We believe in taking a holistic approach to treating depression. We want to work with you at your pace to help you achieve your goals.

Treatment

CBT is the most common treatment for depression. Yet there are other approaches including psychodynamic, biofeedback, neurofeedback, Gestalt, and existential therapy. Referrals for medication may also be necessary. A comprehensive intake is the first step towards treating depression. Some key intake questions include:

  1. What stressors are in your life?
  2. What is your history of depression?
  3. What is your history of medication and other drug use?
  4. What is the duration and severity of your symptoms?

The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another. – William James

We must be willing to let go of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. – Joseph Campbell

Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions. – Pema Chodron
