What is Depression?
Depression is about hopelessness, helplessness and worthlessness. Depression keeps you stuck in the past.
When To Come in?
Do you feel hopeless, helpless or worthless? Do you have a hard time sleeping or trouble getting out of bed? Do you feel stuck or believe you have run out of choices? Have you lost motivation to do the things you used to enjoy. Are you having trouble falling or staying asleep? Have your eating habits changed? Have you lost or gained significant weight recently. Do you eat to comfort yourself even when you are not really hungry? If your answer is yes to any of the questions above, It’s time to seek help!
How Can it help?
Creating a future orientation will help you come out of depression. We are trained in evidenced based approaches to treat depression. In a 6 year study of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for prevention of recurrent depression, there was a 40% lower relapse rate than simply clinical management of depression (Fave, et. al. 2004) and many professional studies of Mindfulness Based Psychotherapies show us that there is hope, no matter how bad depression feels at the moment (Hays 2001). Let us help you find a solution.
Our Therapy Process
Your first step is to call us to schedule your initial appointment. We will link you up with the therapist that we believe will be the best fit for you.
Your initial evaluation session provides an opportunity to establish rapport with the therapist and provide them with some background about yourselves and the reasons you are seeking therapy. In addition, they will be able to answer your questions regarding services, confidentiality, and what to expect in therapy.
At the end of your first session, if you decide to move forward with treatment, we will schedule further appointments. At your second appointment, we will create a treatment plan together that is compatible with your personality, needs, resources and your unique cultural background.
Call +1 630 774 8316 Dr. Asif or +1 630 674 1138 Dr. Yasmeen and speak to us to learn more or schedule an appointment.
We can see new patients quickly, sometimes even on the same day. In an emergency, you need to visit the nearest hospital emergency room for immediate stabilization or call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline: (800) 273-8255. Please make that call now.
