Treating Depression

 

 

How can therapy help with Depression? Everyone has experienced feelings of depression at one time or another. These feelings commonly follow loss or disappointment and they usually pass in a few hours or days. However, when depressive feelings persist and interfere with one's health, work and social well-being, some sort of intervention or professional help is needed.

 

When you see a mental health practitioner when you are experiencing symptoms of depression, it can help by:

 

  • Having a place to share your feelings and explore underlying causes of your depressed mood

  • Having someone help you monitor your depressed feelings

  • Learning some new ways of overcoming depression and regaining your energy, optimism, and zest for life 

  • Helping you set realistic goals

 

I am also available to provide coordinated consultation with medical professionals for medication evaluation.
