Recognizing that you might be experiencing depression is the 1st step in treating depression. Schedule an appointment with our office.
For your first appointment, we will give you a thorough evaluation to diagnose you for depression and determine the severity.
Once properly diagnosed we will create a custom plan to treat your depression. This may include medication, talk therapy, or integrative treatments.
Showing up to every appointment and following our recommended treatments increases your chances of curing depression by 86%.
We take a holistic approach that looks at all aspects of the patient’s lifestyle. Integrative treatment can include talk therapy, nutritional plans, exercise plans, mindfulness, and meditation.
Also called “psychotherapy”, talk therapy involves speaking 1 on 1 with one of our professionally trained and licensed therapist to find relief from emotional distress and seek solutions to your life’s problems.
We will create a personalized medication plan depending on your type of depression, medication history, and genetic testing results. Medications may include anti-depressants, mood stabilizers, vitamins, and supplments.
TMS is an FDA-cleared, non-drug and safe treatment option for people with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). TMS is covered by most insurances and provides long lasting relief from depression.
Treating your depression depends on a number of factors. The most important part depends on you. Showing up to all your scheduled appointments, being 100% honest with your provider, and following their plans and recommendations. We want you to get well but we need you to do your part.
