Depression Treatment

At Shift, our therapists can help clinically depressed or even mildly depressed individuals find the origin of their depressive episodes in a way that creates lasting change for the individual.

In combination with antidepressant medication or without, cognitive behavioral therapy and bi-lateral stimulation, as an exposure therapy, are skillfully woven into Shift’s protocol, to create a structured and highly effective treatment for a condition that may previously have been thought to be treatment resistant.

During the initial intake session, we will explore your risk factors and developmental factors together. We will create a results-driven treatment plan for your depression, to improve your overall mental health.  Continued screenings for treatment progression and depression symptoms are present in all subsequent sessions, as well.

During therapy, limiting beliefs and dysfunctional needs are removed and risk factors such as isolation from friends and family, overloading with work, social interactions or previous trauma is treated. Shift’s treatment is effective for children, elderly and adult individuals. Depression counselors and psychologists can help to remove the symptoms to allow you to get back to an enjoyable life.
