What Is the Treatment for Depression?


Treatment for depression can vary based on the patient's needs, severity of symptoms, and personal preferences.
A depression treatment plan often involves a combination of medication, psychotherapy, a person’s lifestyle adjustments, and mind-body interventions like yoga and meditation - a holistic approach can be taken.


Medication Treatment For Depression


We provide medication introduction and medication management services to patients with depression.
Depression medications, like Zoloft, Prozac, and other anti-depressants, can help chemically balance our emotions.
But it's important to remember that these are merely tools to help us cope with the stress in our lives.
It's also important to note that only some respond to medication similarly.
What works for one person may only work for one person. That's why having a customized treatment plan for your needs is so important.
The best treatment for depression depends on one’s unique condition and circumstances.
At Healizm, we offer collaborative therapy to help you steer the course of your treatment for depression.

We will only recommend therapies and medications that we believe will truly benefit you.

Our goal is to educate and support our patients through treatment, so they can live happy and healthy lives.

We also want to look beyond the medication and towards factors like:

  1. How are you managing after the medication when there's more stress in your life?
  2. Can you stop your medication and reach a level where you are aware of your feelings?

Psychotherapy For Depression


Psychotherapy is an essential treatment for depression.
It can help you understand your illness and give you strategies to deal with the symptoms.
Psychotherapy can be done in a one-on-one, group, or online setting.
At Healizm, our services are designed to meet you where you're at. We offer telehealth therapy so you can get the help you need from the comfort of your own home.
We understand that only some people are ready or able to come in for face-to-face treatment, and we want to make sure you have access to the resources you need.
No matter what treatment for depression you choose, it's important to remember that you are not alone.
