Depression strikes millions of Americans each year. Because it is so common, you would think that most people who suffer from depression seek help. But many people do not even realize they’re suffering from depression. That’s why at Mars & Venus, our Oradell depression counselor helps you spot the symptoms you’ve been having to find out if you have depression so that we can treat it accordingly.
Our Oradell depression counselor helps both couples and individuals suffering from problems that stem from depression, and treats the depression itself. Individual therapy can help to remove the blocks that cause happiness by bringing up issues, talking about goals and using certain tools that can help combat the individual’s depression. Our couple’s therapy uses the book Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus to guide the therapy sessions by using a technique developed by our doctor, Dr. John Gray, which integrates the book’s ideas along with his own psychotherapy techniques. The goal of couples therapy is to teach each individual how to respect and honor their partner, communicate as needed and to learn the differences that make each person a unique individual. Communication skills and coping methods are improved through suggestions, therapeutic techniques and by teaching each person how to utilize the methods learned in therapy to better their relationship.
