Counseling and Psychotherapy For DepressionDepression and disappointment is something that most people experience at some point in their life. However, when the symptoms become too intense or interfere with ones daily functioning, it is then that clients feel themselves to be in a rut and seek out my help.

There are many different kinds of depression with different causes and outcomes. Sometimes, a client can benefit from medication and needs to preferably see a psychiatrist for that. More often however, I can help my clients to work thru the issues that have led to depression so as to maximize the chance that the symptoms will remit and not reoccur. I do this by helping my clients to see other ways to approach life and lifes paths and to understand how their experiences and attitudes brought them to the point where they found themselves in a rut.

When we speak of depression we usually speak of a cluster of symptoms. These include sadness, disappointment, sleep and concentration disturbance, irritability, disturbance of appetite, crying spells, feelings of hopeless and worthlessness and incapacity and more.

As a psychologist, I have found in my practice serving Orange and Sullivan county NY, that depression seems to feed on itself and is often triggered by losses and disappointments and blockages in ones life. However in my work with my clients in individual psychotherapy, I find that it is the unsaid things in their life experience and their thinking that play a crucial role in the development and maintenance of these symptoms.

If you find yourself in a rut, feel depressed more often than not, and would like a helping hand to lead a better life, give me a call.
I will be glad to help you get out of that rut in your life. You can reach me at 1 800 576 phds or at thetopdoc@att.net or by using the contact form below.
