Depression is not only painful, it is demoralizing. Our Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) depression and anxiety treatment groups offered in New York are designed to immediately help members reduce their pain and anguish, and over time to lead more invigorating, meaningful, and satisfying lives.
New York Behavioral Health therapists, led by clinical psychologist, Dr. J. Ryan Fuller, use scientifically supported techniques in the group to identify the signs of depression and reduce the emotional pain and other symptons of depression and anxiety. They also teach clients skills that can be used outside of the group. In this way each member can begin to alleviate his/her own suffering, and develop the skills to begin to cultivate positive emotional moments and adaptive behaviors that over time create a worthwhile quality of life. Major Depressive Disorder, often referred to as depression, and Anxiety Disorders can be effectively treated with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and traditional Behavior Therapy.

Major Depressive Disorder Symptoms
Depression symptoms can include negative feelings like excessive guilt and sadness, as well as beliefs that one is worthless, inadequate, or that life is hopeless. Depressed people often experience anhedonia, which is a reduction or total loss of interest in activities that were once pleasurable. Vegetative symptoms are also frequently present, and in the case of depression there can be an increase or decrease in appetite, weight, sleep, or libido.
There are some symptoms that can be common to both depression and anxiety. Symptoms like the inability to concentrate or make decisions can be present in both major depressive disorder (depression) and anxiety disorders. Another important characteristic of depression and anxiety disorders is that they cause significant distress and/or impair functioning in different social roles or domains, such as family or work life.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Depression & Anxiety
There are many disorders for which modern science, and specifically Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) are ineffective. However, depression and anxiety are both very responsive to Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in randomized clinical trials (RCT).
