is a real and serious illness that affects 1 out of 10
adults in a given year and 1 out of 6 over a lifetime.
Some of the possible symptoms of depression are sadness,
loss of energy for enjoyable activities, feelings of worthlessness,
excessive sleep or loss of sexual interest.
If a person’s symptoms interfere with family relationships,
friendships or the ability to work, then professional
help is indicated. A depressed client told Dr. Nadler
that he felt so much improved since he was “able
to resume enjoyable activities and return to work.”
Depression and psychotherapy have been researched
extensively. Dr. Nadler uses one of the most effective forms
of psychotherapy for depression, cognitive behavior therapy,
a treatment that enables patients to correct false self-beliefs
that can lead to depressed moods and self-defeating behaviors.
Counseling for depression with this form of psychotherapy is
at least as comparable in effectiveness to antidepressants in mild to moderate depression. The combination
of cognitive therapy and antidepressants is more effective than
either treatment alone, especially for those with severe depression.
Dr. Nadler also treats bipolar disorder in which the client
experiences manic moods and possibly depressive moods as well.
