Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Treatment of depression can be done with medications such as antidepressants, though cognitive behavioral therapy or interpersonal therapy that can help clients adjust to a crisis or other current difficulty, and identify negative beliefs and behaviors and replace them with healthy, positive ones. Treatment can explore relationships and experiences to help develop positive interactions with others. Additionally, clients learn to find better ways to cope and solve problems, identify issues that contribute to their depression, and change behaviors that make it worse; regain a sense of satisfaction and control to help ease depression symptoms, such as hopelessness and anger; learn to set realistic goals for their lives; and develop the ability to tolerate and accept distress using healthier behaviors.
We provide tailored, responsive treatment for clients in a way that is most meaningful for their condition, support them in investigating the underlying issues and experiences that may contribute to mood disorders, and help them establish new coping mechanisms in response to stressors. Our goal is to help each individual move toward improved self-image, find relief from suffering, and discover a greater ability to live a healthy, happy life.
