Depression is characterized by an intense, ongoing sadness that is often accompanied by loss of interest, guilt, low self-esteem, a sense of helplessness, changes in appetite, sleep disturbance, and suicidal thoughts that last for several weeks.
If you have noticed these symptoms in yourself or others, they may be signs of clinical or major depression. These conditions can be disabling and even life threatening and warrant urgent medical attention.
Our team of doctors, nurses, and counselors is experienced in the multimodal treatment of depression. Our array of treatments includes cognitive behavior therapy, family and interpersonal therapies, and lifestyle coaching. As necessary, we also employ prescription medication, natural remedies, and supplements to alleviate symptoms.
