Depression

Have you been feeling sad, down, depressed or unhappy?

Are you not enjoying life as much as before?

Do you feel guilty, bad or ashamed?

Do you think of yourself as inadequate, defective or worthless?

Are you feeling hopeless?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may be experiencing a mood disorder.  We all have bad days, but if you're experiencing more bad days than good for two weeks or more and it's affecting your social life, work life or education, then you may need help.

Here is a list of some of the mood disorders that I commonly treat:

  1. Major Depressive Disorder
    1. Post-Partum Depression
    2. Seasonal Affective Disorder
    3. Substance-Induced Depression
    4. Melancholic and Atypical Depressions
    5. Major Depression with Psychotic Features
  2. Bipolar Disorder
  3. Dysthymic Disorder
    (less-severe but longer-lasting depression)
  4. Cyclothymic Disorder
    (milder, longer-lasting depression with episodes of hypomanic symptoms)
