Often times, we continue to see our past traumas show up in our present life through difficulties like trouble sleeping, anxiety, fear of trying new things, depression, and feeling “stuck”. Our therapists utilize EMDR to help move past those “stuck memories” while also improving a greater sense of self and hope for the future. Stressful events can become stuck in our memory networks and like a scratched CD, continue to replay over and over again. The emotional impact of the memories is re-experienced every time they are remembered, because the flight, fight or freeze response is continually being activated.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Palm Beach Gardens. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
