Depression

If you are experiencing symptoms of sadness, crying more than usual, hopelessness, low energy, decreased interest in things you used to enjoy, appetite or sleep changes, irritability or just a general sense of the blues, you may be suffering from depression. Depression can be a lifelong struggle or can be triggered by an event such as the loss of a loved one, job loss, breaking-up with someone, separation or divorce.

You are not alone and we can definitely help. Depression is more common that you may think and most people suffer through at least one episode during the course of their life. Advances in treatment have made it possible for people like you who may suffer from depression to live happier, content and more well-balanced lives. We specialize in the most empirically-established treatment for depression called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). First you will meet with one of our clinicians to discuss your situation in a confidential, comfortable setting. We teach you techniques proven to work and (if you do your minimal homework), most treatment can be completed by meeting once a week with your therapist for about 8 – 12 sessions, although it varies by individual.
