Depression Therapy

Begin to Live Your Most Meaningful Life Again

Fort Lauderdale Depression Therapy

Depression robs us of joy. Depression can lead to a lack of interest in things you used to enjoy. Depression can take the form of negative thoughts, overwhelming sadness, increased irritability and even anger. Depression can cause us to sleep too much or not at all. Depression is NOT your fault and it is NOT a choice. With depression therapy you will begin to challenge the negative thought patterns that keep you stuck in the depression cycle. Specifically, you will learn to challenge your self-judgments and your negative worldviews.

My Treatment Approach

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Therapy for Depression

I use both Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in my approach to treat depression. These approaches have been found to be most effective in targeting negative self talk, modifying negative messages and regulating the overwhelming sadness that can often accompany depression. This integrative approach to treating depression will allow you to gain skills that you can begin to use after your very first session. My treatment approach to depression is collaborative and I will work WITH you to achieve improved mood and overall meaning in life.
