Are You Struggling With Depression?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Depression

Depression is persistent feelings of sadness and emptiness, a lack of motivation, crying, changes in eating or sleeping, disinterested in the things you once enjoyed and potentially self-harming behaviors or thoughts of suicide. Many counseling interventions effectively treat depression, including behavioral, cognitive, interpersonal, psychodynamic, and mindfulness interventions. People with depression may also require medication.

Available Treatment Options

Behavioral therapy uses interventions to change behaviors that lead to or exacerbate distressing emotions. Cognitive interventions involve examining thought processes to change unhelpful patterns of cognition. Psychodynamic counseling fosters self-awareness through exploring unconscious thoughts and how one’s past affects current functioning.
