How is Depression Treated?

Depression is treated with both drug therapy and talk therapy (counseling and Washington DC depression psychotherapy). There is much research that suggests that the best outcomes for treatment of depression are a combination of drug and talk therapy. Sometimes it is necessary to use prescribed anti-depression drugs if the depression is severe or if you can’t invest in adequate conventional treatment to affect symptoms. Washington DC depression psychotherapy has experience helping people address the root causes of depression while helping you decide whether or not to use drugs to manage the symptoms.

Relating to Depression in New Ways

Our Washington DC Depression Psychotherapy is best described as holistic and relational. Although it might seem to be a reasonable goal to “get rid of my depression,” one of the first steps in our depression counseling may be to help you change your relationship toward your depression. Although it’s hard to believe when we may experience our depression as totally negative, depression actually serves a useful function within the normal range of human emotion. Washington DC depression psychotherapy can help you explore the possibility that you can stop fighting yourself and transform–not necessarily eliminate–negative thoughts into service for a useful purpose.

In our experience, people who are willing let go of the conventional metaphor of “battling” your depression symptoms can find new and unexpected strength from something that is usually considered a real illness. This is not to say that our Washington DC depression psychotherapy will simply help you make peace and live with unhealthy and negative symptoms of depression. The real goal is to understand how the depression got to be so extreme. We can help you decode the original intent of the symptoms that are hard to decipher after living with depression that seems like an enemy. We’ll help you measure your progress and monitor with you the depression and it’s effects.
