At certain times, life overwhelms all of us. Problems pile up and we feel frustrated and defeated. We may have held things inside for months, years or even decades. We come to a place of anxiety, depression, drugs and alcohol dependence, relationship conflict, or isolation. The ease and vitality of life that we once experienced seems too far removed. At the worst, we lose all perspective and feel hopeless. We don't want to feel this way anymore. It can be so hard to take that first step and reach out for help.

Out cultural institutions do not prepare us for the diversity of experience we face as adults. Conformity to outdated rules of thinking and acting do not work in situations that invite flexibility and adaptiveness. Rigid thinking patterns are maladaptive and lead to frustration, stress, and depression. We are led to believe we "should" be able to solve problems through mastery of our behavior and feelings, but it's just that demand to control things that leads to a identity. confusion. Therapy is not education: I don't work from a lesson plan that has all the right answers. We will work your story 'till it makes sense.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Ventura. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
