Our Method for Treating for Depression

Many clients improve and heal from depressive symptoms with therapy alone. However, some clients suffering from significant depressive symptoms may need medication in conjunction with therapy to relieve the symptoms of depression. Additionally, we have a variety of PTSD treatments for individuals suffering from depression stemming from a traumatic even.

If you are treated by a prescriber and taking medication for depression, we will work in conjunction with your provider to make sure you are receiving the highest level of care. We can also refer you to a prescribe if it is determined that a medication evaluation may benefit you and your treatment plan.

Together, you and your therapist will create a treatment plan that is specific to your needs, preferences, and therapeutic goals. Together, we will move you beyond depression. A more fulfilling and meaningful life is waiting for you!
