Depression affects more than 15 million adults in the United States

It’s estimated that depression affects more than 15 million adults in the United States. With this level of proliferation, it’s easy to see how it’s one of the leading health issues in the world. Clinical depression can lead to a plethora of other health conditions but is never untreatable. Even major depressive disorders can be addressed by a dedicated psychologist and us here at Ideal Medical in Miami are dedicated to helping our patients find help for their depression.

It’s said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and the first step that anyone experiencing clinical depression should take is to consult with a licensed therapist like Ideal Medical’s Dr. Vanessa Villacian Pages. Unfortunately, many people worry that the treatment of modern clinical depression will involve medications that can cause personality changes. These days, that’s simply not always true.

While medication is a great treatment for major depressive disorder, brief psychotherapy sessions also can have a major effect as well. In fact, cognitive-behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy can have a tremendous impact, which Dr. Villacian Pages, with her 18 years of experience, is well versed in.

Using treatments like psychotherapy can be very beneficial for clinical depression sufferers. If you suffer from major depressive disorder, there are some great psychotherapeutic options that can help treat your condition. Also, despite what some may think, psychotherapeutic treatments typically only happen once a week, which means that busy people who are currently going through treatment plans can still receive the help that they need without too much life disruption.

It’s important for a patient to learn as much as they can about their specific type of depression, which we at Ideal Medical can help you do. It’s also important to know that finding the right treatment for depression can take some time, but Dr. Villacian Pages is here to help you find the specific therapy that can lessen the effects of clinical depression on your life. As long as you can dedicate the time and stay committed to the cause of getting better, Ideal Medical can definitely find a treatment plan for you.
