Depression Therapy in NJ
Depression Therapy Treatments
This type of depression therapy allows you to sit down with one of our licensed counselors. In this one-on-one setting, you’ll work through thoughts and emotions related to or caused by your depression so you can grow in mental health.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a practice that focuses on how our thoughts affect our behaviors. Our counselors will work with you to break negative thinking patterns so you can address situations in a healthier way.
In depression group therapy, you’ll find support and encouragement from others who also have depression. While one of our counselors will supervise the group, it is meant for you to talk and listen so you can grow in understanding of depression and its effects on your life.
At Gaming Approaches Towards Education, LLC (GATE), we provide play therapy for our clients. Board games, storytelling, role-playing, sand trays, and expressive arts are used in our therapy services.
