Personalized Care from Depression Specialists


Our approach to depression therapy begins with honoring your unique story. As depression specialists, we believe that understanding your experiences, challenges, and aspirations is crucial for creating a personalized path towards healing and growth.

Through expert assessment, objective depression symptom inventories, and compassionate dialogue, we will pinpoint how your depression manifests and how to begin to treat it.  Whether it's persistent sadness, loss of interest in activities, or feelings of hopelessness, we will provide a safe space for exploration and understanding and a path to feeling like your old self again.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression


CBT is at the core of our therapeutic approach for treating depression. This evidence-based method focuses on identifying and challenging negative thought patterns and beliefs that contribute to your depressive symptoms. By restructuring these thoughts, you can develop healthier, more adaptive ways of thinking. 

 

You may also be navigating other challenges alongside your depression, such as anxiety, relationship issues, work-related stress, or life transitions. Our holistic approach considers all facets of your life to ensure comprehensive support.

 

Treating depression also usually involves goal-setting and habit-building around practical elements like establishing an exercise routine you enjoy, seeing friends more often, engaging in meaningful activities, reducing drinking, smoking, or drug use, along with processing loss and change.  If medication is needed or of interest, we can connect you with local prescribers we know and trust.
