According to the CDC, 1 in 10 Americans reported experiencing depression last year. I am a senior level psychologist in Orange County, CA and specialize in treating depression; the good news is that depression can get much better with the right approach. The best counseling for depression, like anxiety treatment, includes cognitive therapy but current research shows that more modern counseling approaches, including mindfulness are also highly effective in treating depression. I use a combination of cognitive therapy and mindfulness counseling for optimal results.​
