What Is Depression?

Many of us feel sad or down at times during the course of our normal lives. When those feelings intensify, linger and include feelings of hopeless, helplessness and low self-esteem,for weeks or repeatedly over the years then a clinical depression may be the cause.
There are both psychological and physical causes for depression. It is an illness that can be treated like other physical illness. It is not weakness.

The good news is that over the 30 years I have been in  practice I have seen how a combination of therapies and approaches can help people overcome depression and regain their energy, creativity and improve their relationships and their lives.
