Depression

Depression is a term that’s thrown around a lot these days, but

there are two major types of depression – Situational and

Clinical. With situational depression, you may be experiencing

many of the symptoms of depression due to a situation you’re

currently undergoing such as a break-up, life transition, career

change, or grief. Clinical depression means your depression

may be more chronic and due to your brain chemistry along

with life circumstances. With clinical depression, the best

treatment typically includes some form of talk therapy (what we

do) and potentially getting on an anti-depressant. Situational

depression can be well treated with talk therapy alone. EMDR is

another highly effective treatment method for depression.

Some of the common symptoms of depression include:

  • Loss of interest in things that used to be enjoyable to you

  • Changes in appetite

  • Sleep difficulties

  • Sadness & tearfulness

  • Isolation

  • Suicidal thoughts or actions

 

If these symptoms last longer than 2 weeks, you may have Major Depressive Disorder and some form of treatment is very

necessary to get better.

 

The good news is you can get better!

 

We help heal depression using methods from EMDR,

Mindfulness, Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT),

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Narrative Therapy.

We will meet you exactly where you are and will develop an

individualized treatment plan to help you with your specific

symptoms and move toward relief. In essence, we want to help

you feel like yourself again – without the dark cloud over

everything.

All of our clinicians are skilled in treating depression, and they

work in different ways. Check them out to see who might be the

best fit for you.
