How Therapy & Counseling Can Help

Whilst medication is often a necessary component of depression treatment, research shows that therapy is just as useful in helping individuals recover from a depressive episode.Therapy can provide a safe place to explore your depression symptoms, triggers & reinforcing behaviors. Treatment will involve a holistic approach including cognitive restructuring, mindfulness, acceptance strategies, behavioral activation, exercise, sleep hygiene practices, dietary interventions and collaborative treatment with Chicago based psychiatrists.

Cityscape Counseling is an ideal practice to receive therapy for depression in Chicago because our therapists have extensive experience using evidenced based behavioral therapies to treat both adolescents and adults with mild to severe depression across many levels of care. We have developed many treatment curriculums for skills development for individuals struggling with low self-esteem, severe depression, self-injury and suicidality. Additionally, we are well networked with trustworthy psychiatrists in Chicago who can provide effective medications to lower depression symptoms if necessary.
