Depression

The everyday pressures of life can often be overwhelming and can cause us to sink into a state of mind that is emotionally painful.

Depression is a debilitating condition that 1 in 5 people will experience in their lifetime. Whether depression is caused by a job loss, relationship break-up, stress, or a combination of these factors or other factors, no one is immune. The two most common forms of depression are:

  • Major Depression: An episode of extreme sadness lasting at least two weeks or longer. This is often triggered by a deeply upsetting event, or a culmination of several events or stressors. Additional symptoms can include loss of energy, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, difficulty concentrating, sleep problems, and frequent thoughts of death.
  • Chronic Depression: Also known as Dysthymia, it is a low-grade, long-term depression that can last for years. This condition is often accompanied by fatigue, low self-esteem, and feelings of hopelessness.

You can recover from depression. The road to recovery may seeming daunting, but having recovered from depression myself, I know where the pot holes are, and I can teach you how to avoid them. Allow me to lead you on your journey to a happy and fulfilling life.

ZOE T.

“Finding a therapist you get along well with and can trust is pivotal for your journey to mental wellbeing. I have Borderline Personality Disorder and I commend Ilene for being amongst the very few that find value in working with people that suffer from BPD. Thank you Ilene for being a therapist with integrity and for sharing your wisdom wholeheartedly with me. You’ve helped me to calm the storm and to weather my emotions instead of letting them overcome me.”

ASHLEY B.

Sometimes all it takes is for someone to truly care, truly listen, and to truly be invested in healing the things that have broken your heart. She has helped me heal my broken mind and my broken heart. Dr.Ilene is an effective healer because she gets to the heart of things. She heals from her heart, to your heart, and from there everything becomes possible.”
