Overcome Depression 

Depending on the severity, depression can be highly debilitating to an individual and their loved ones. At Houston Therapy, we specialize in helping people overcome depression. There are many forms of depression treatment, however, extensive research has shown that ongoing counseling and therapy for depression is essential for recovery and relapse prevention.


We have helped many people recover from depression through counseling and return to their “old selves” with more insight about themselves and greater clarity about the path forward. If you think you might be struggling with depression, take the first step towards feeling better and contact our  intake coordinator today.

Overcoming depression requires expertise from trained professionals.  All of our therapists are experienced in helping people with depression. 

Expert Therapists

My approach to psychotherapy is both client-centered and evidence-based. Using a collaborative processes, we may review and learn a number of tools and techniques  that can help with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, PTSD, or crisis. I also engage many clients through depth work that may speak to the human experience in profound ways, including existential themes, values, meaning-making, and spirituality. My background in the Humanistic & Existential traditions often emerges early in our work, as we delve deep into your current concerns and your background. 


I have been a psychologist for 14 years and with expertise in managing suicidality, trauma, depression, anxiety, and health behavior change. I  work well with legal, STEM, education, and medical professionals, as well as athletes, creatives, and college or graduate students

Sadness is a normal part of our emotional experience. 


Especially in response to a sad event, it is normal for people to feel down, melancholy, or have “the blues.” However, sometimes sadness can persist for extensive periods and seem to be drastically disproportionate to a triggering event. If these low moods continue for more than a couple of weeks and interfere with your daily life, it may be a clinically significant depressive episode.
