DEPRESSION WITH DR. BEN CULHANE | PSY.D.

With the right treatment and support, there is hope that your depression can gradually lift like an evaporating fog.

  • Are you feeling tired and heavy? Maybe you’re sleeping in more than you’d like to be. Perhaps you just don’t seem to enjoy doing the things that you used to. Even being around friends isn’t making you feel better. 
  • Are you feeling sad? Have your eating habits changed? Maybe you’re eating to soothe how you feel inside or you’ve lost your appetite. Are you drinking alcohol to cope? Do you find yourself thinking, “Is this all there is? What am I missing? There’s got to be more.”
  • Looking for a way out of the challenges that life has thrown your way? Ready to break free from the grip of depression and rediscover joy, motivation, and connection? You’ve come to the right place.

Depression Treatment Can Help You Reach the Summit. 

Depression treatment is like climbing a mountain- it can be tough and arduous, but the rewards are immeasurable when you reach the top. The climb represents the journey towards healing and overcoming depression, with each step forward representing progress towards improved mental health. Along the way, you may need to rest and recuperate, reevaluating your strategy and recharging your energy to continue on. With perseverance and the right support, you will reach the summit and be rewarded with a newfound perspective and sense of accomplishment, ready to take on whatever comes next in your life.

Clinical depression is a complex mood disorder that influences your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. It may leave you feeling overwhelmed and incapable of coping with life’s challenges. Depression can affect your relationships, physical well-being, immune system, and even lead to self-injury or thoughts of suicide. If you’re currently experiencing suicidal thoughts, please seek immediate help by calling 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255.

It’s common to mistake clinical depression for a temporary bout of sadness, but positive thinking alone cannot cure it. Instead, depression treatment may involve a combination of medication and psychotherapy.

My clients have experienced the power of having a warm and empathetic environment where they can openly discuss their depression, its underlying causes, and their emotions and beliefs. Psychotherapy, particularly for mild to moderate depression, is an effective treatment approach that greatly benefits most individuals.

Throughout our sessions, we will work together to identify the root causes of your depression, explore its symptoms, and understand how it impacts your life. Additionally, you will gain valuable skills, such as developing a strategic action plan to alleviate your symptoms and delving deeper into your depression’s origins, whether it be trauma, grief, or relationship issues. Even more, you will learn how to seek support from the right people, whether it is family, friends, or community organizations. We can employ various therapeutic methods to address your depression, tailored to your individual needs. 

Dealing with depression can be isolating and may make you feel like you have no one to turn to. However, it’s important to remember that overcoming depression is possible. According to the American Psychiatric Association, 80 to 90 percent of people respond well to depression treatment.

With the right treatment and support, there is hope that your depression can gradually lift like an evaporating fog. It begins with seeking help and collaborating with a depression therapist to discover the tools within yourself to heal your body, mind, and spirit. You don’t have to face this journey alone. Together, we can work towards reclaiming your life and sense of personal power.


Still Not Sure And Have Questions?

“I’m Not Sure I Can Afford This?”

Totally get it. In the current economy, post-pandemic restructuring, cash is tight. You want to make sure that each dollar is worth spending. That’s why investing in yourself is one of the best things you can do for yourself—investing in your future self that will pay off dividends in joy motivation and life fulfillment. 

“I’m concerned that therapy won’t be helpful. “

It is understandable to have concerns about the effectiveness of therapy, especially if you have tried other methods in the past that didn’t yield the desired results. However, it’s important to recognize that therapy can provide immense benefits for individuals experiencing depression.

Remember, therapy is not a quick fix, but a process that requires time, effort, and commitment. Success can be measured in different ways, such as increased self-awareness, improved coping skills, better relationships, and a reduction in depressive symptoms. It’s essential to approach therapy with an open mind, patience, and a willingness to actively engage in the process.

“How long does depression therapy typically last?”

The duration of depression therapy varies depending on individual circumstances. It may range from a few sessions to several months or longer, depending on the severity of the depression, the goals established during therapy, and the progress made. It is important to remember that therapy is an ongoing process that evolves and adapts as the individual’s needs change. Regular sessions, initially scheduled more frequently, may transition to less frequent maintenance sessions as progress is made. Ultimately, the duration of depression therapy is unique to each person and is determined collaboratively between the therapist and the client.

“How am I going to find the time?”

No matter where you go there you are! Depression doesn’t care where you get help. Actually, with online therapy, you can face depression from your office, at home, in a car—anywhere. You may work a lot, or maybe you may have kids and a partner or spouse who needs your time. Your time is valuable. We can find a time that works into your schedule.  

Depression Therapy can be effectively administered virtually as well as in person. It’s up to you what feels best for you and your schedule.
