Relief from Depression
Depression, which is more than temporary or situational sadness, is a real clinical condition that can cause significant impairment in adults and children. Fortunately, depression is among the most treatable of disorders. Research shows that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is considered to be the most effective talk therapy for depression. If using antidepressant medication, we know that adding CBT is substantially more effective than medication alone.
Using evidence-based therapeutic techniques, Dr. Hauke will teach you CBT skills to help you overcome depression and start feeling and living better today!
CBT is a type of therapy that shifts the focus away from what you cannot or may not be able to control, to what you CAN control—your thoughts! By identifying and changing irrational thoughts and beliefs about yourself, others, and situations, you can take control of your emotions and reactions.
Dr. Hauke will help you recognize destructive thoughts and how they are affecting your emotions and behaviors. She will work with you to develop coping skills to boost your mood and motivation. She will help you process experiences from the past which may be currently affecting your self-esteem and relationships with others. She also will assist you in setting specific, achievable, and realistic goals and then help you build upon your success.
