When Should I Get Help?

Depression disrupts a person’s life. The symptoms of depression are also not limited to sadness. A person that has depression may struggle with:

  • Excessive sleepiness or insomnia.
  • Inability to feel positive emotions or joy.
  • Negative self talk and hopelessness.
  • Loss of interest in fun activities.
  • Difficulty concentration.
  • Thoughts of harming oneself or suicide.

At Long Island Counseling Services, we believe that anyone that feels as though they may be depressed – struggling with emotions like sadness, grief, low self-esteem, and more – deserves to receive personalized support from therapists that understand them. Whether you’ve been diagnosed with depression or you simply feel you’re ready to get help, LICS is here for you.  

What Do You Treat?

Long Island Counseling Services provides support for anyone struggling with depression or depression-like symptoms. We are available to treat conditions that include:

  • Clinical Depression
  • Persistent Depressive Disorder
  • Bipolar Disorder (I and II)
  • Postpartum Depression
  • Seasonal Depression

As depression counselors on Long Island, we also want our patients to understand that they are more than labels, and the approach that we’ll use is about your struggles – not just the diagnosis.

What Depression Treatments Do You Use?

Our approach to depression is to create a model and plan that is built around you. We can integrate many different approaches to therapy based on your experiences. Some of the modalities we use include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Psychodynamic Theory
  • Psychoanalytic Theory
  • Behavioral Modification
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Our Long Island therapists will talk to you about your own preferences and provide guidance about which therapy approaches are the best fit for your needs.

What Can You Expect From Therapy?

Therapy is about moving you forward towards a better, happier future. Patients that choose to receive therapy for their depression often find that they are:

  • Able to better handle stress and setbacks.
  • Happier and able to experience feelings of joy.
  • Better able to manage relationships, both romantic and plutonic.
  • Greater focus at work and at home.
  • More energy and optimism to take on the ups and downs of the day.

Studies have consistently shown that depression responds well to treatment. Our experienced team will work with you on an ongoing basis to get you the support you need to manage your symptoms. 

Who Will You Be Working With?

When you choose to work with Long Island Counseling Services, you’re working with someone that has years of experience, outstanding training, and the ability to create a space that is safe for you to share your thoughts and feelings while providing a range of psychotherapies. We care about you here, and every therapist on our team will treat you with kindness and respect.

We encourage you to get to know our Long Island therapists on our website. You are welcome to ask for a specific therapist and we can see if they’re accepting new patients, or our intake coordinator will get to know you and try to match you with someone we believe is the best fit for you.
