ABOUT

Licensed Therapist Specializing in Depression, for Men and Adolescents

I have dedicated myself to understanding and treating depression for the past 6 years. I've trained with world-leading experts, learning and practicing evidence-based techniques, proven effective in international trials to immediately ease the symptoms of depression, and also increase long-term life satisfaction. 

My goal is to help men struggling with depression to find vitality, satisfying relationships, and a life filled with meaning.

Signs of Depression

  • Has it been a while since you felt excited or joyous about anything? 
  • Is it hard for you even to "just go through the motions"? 
  • Did you wake up this morning feeling depressed, anxious, stuck - or even hopeless? 
  • Are your relationships at an all-time low?
  • Do you find yourself worried or sad to the point where it physically hurts? 

If you answered "yes" to some of these questions, like many men you may be suffering in silence from depression. A sense of shame or failure can hold people back from getting help. But depression doesn't mean that you are defective or weak. Many, intelligent, successful people have struggled and recovered. 

I create a safe space for you to finally feel understood, while making the most of proven therapeutic techniques highly effective in helping people like you to find meaning, connection and joy again. And I'll teach you skills and tools to stay in that place.

I encourage you to take the first step towards a happier tomorrow by reaching out to me today.

 

Sincerely,

Shmuel Yosef Elbinger
