In television, movies, and books, we often see portrayals of characters with depression. These depictions do not always give an accurate picture of what depression may look like. Depression can be more than just sadness and it can be difficult to identify. At Morgan Center, we use a variety of proven methods to provide depression counseling Boca Raton. Let’s take a look at the phenomena of depression and Morgan Center’s approach to helping our clients.
Why do we Experience Depression?
This is a complex question that biologists, psychologists, and neurologists have been trying to answer for many decades. Luckily, while we in no way have all the answers, our understanding of the condition has advanced exponentially since the 1970s. This is when depression and other conditions began to be widely accepted as manageable, medical conditions. So what have we learned since then?
There is one thing that nearly all who study mental health can agree on. The causes of depression and the ways it manifests are often unique to the individual. While some have experienced a single traumatic experience that brought on depression, it is far more likely to be the result of several biological and/or environmental factors, potentially compounded over many months or years. Depression is far more common than many people realize. Unfortunately, either due to fear of asking for help or simple lack of awareness of their condition, many depressed Americans will never ask for the help they need.
Morgan Center for Counseling and Wellbeing
At Morgan Center, we work to understand the complexities and individual nature of each client’s circumstances. We are trained in a variety of therapy modalities. This helps each client feel comfortable and receive the kind of treatment the therapist thinks will be most effective in every session.
One of these modalities is heart-centered hypnotherapy. This process uses the relaxed state of hypnosis to bypass the analytical, thinking mind. This way, clients are able to more fully process memories and emotions so that the underlying depression may be resolved. If you have tried counseling in Boca Raton and have found those therapy sessions unproductive, hypnotherapy may be an option for you.
Additionally, grief and traumatic experiences can trigger or exacerbate depression. Jody Morgan, LCSW focuses on grief counseling and has earned the Certified Clinical Trauma Professional designation. Morgan Center also offers EMDR treatment. EMDR treatment focuses on processing traumatic memories in order to lessen their negative effects. This is just one of the many ways Morgan Center can individualize a client’s treatment plan.
