Depression Treatment in Alamo, CA

Image by Marcos Paulo Prado

Our therapists provide a warm, empathic space with effective techniques to help manage and recover from depression. Therapy for depression helps with exploring beliefs and emotions, providing support and accountability for harmful behaviors that may be forming, and building confidence and self-worth with healthy coping skills.

Clinical depression is referred to as Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and typically stems from genetics or changes in brain chemistry, can persist for months or years, and requires both medical and psychological attention. 

 

Situational depression is referred to as Adjustment Disorder with depressed mood, and can occur in response to stressful or painful situations such as job loss, illness, a crisis, injury, natural disasters, accidents, and life changes (marriage, birth, adoption, divorce, new home or school, retirement). Symptoms may include: low energy, difficulty relaxing, unrealistic or excessive worrying, sleep disturbance, isolation, loneliness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest in daily activities. A person is at a higher risk of experiencing Adjustment Disorder with depressed mood if other mental or physical health issues coexist; multiple stressors are occurring simultaneously; childhood trauma occurred; or past/present substance abuse exists.  

While a depressed mood can certainly improve organically or with lifestyle changes, pursuing treatment early on reduces the risk of disruptive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors from becoming habits that evolve into a chronic or persistent disorder.
