What is your go-to approach for depression counseling?

My approach for treating depression is being solution of focused using evidence based techniques that can be put in use the day of the session.

What tools do you teach in depression counseling?

I teach the following tools in depression therapy.

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: understanding where the clients foundational thinking started, breaking down of distorted thoughts, understanding automatic thoughts are not true and changing negative thoughts to positive thoughts.
  • Mindfulness: Learning how to stay in the present moment by being mindful of your surroundings. This technique helps slow down the brain to eliminate racing thoughts and decrease anxious feelings.
  • Solution Focused which entail looking at how to find solutions to feelings like you cannot do anything and making a structured schedule the client can work with.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in depression counseling?

I know a client is making meaningful progress in depression therapy by clients reports and depression assessment.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement depression counseling?

Clients can supplement their time in depression therapy by using material and listening to podcast discussed in session. The best supplement is practicing the tools the client learns in session.

What should someone do to prepare for starting depression counseling?

To prepare for your first anxiety therapy session, you can remind yourself this is the therapist job to help you so be open and honest.

Need more help deciding?

Do you feel sad, hopeless, or worthless every single day? When you wake up in the morning, do you struggle to throw off the covers and get out of bed? Do you feel generally uninterested in daily activities like going to work or even spending time with loved ones? If you’ve answered yes to these questions, you might be experiencing symptoms of depression. This might make you feel scared or confused, but don’t worry: There is help available.
