Major Depressive Disorder | Treatment on Long Island
For many, depression is a constant struggle that has lasted for years and requires constant management. For others, depression is caused by an event or change. These events, known medically as “major depressive episodes,” cause symptoms of depression that can last for weeks and develop into a long term problem.
Sometimes, those with a depressive episode are able to overcome it and never experience one again, but for others, these episodes are recurring, and when that happens it is possible that an individual has what’s known as “major depressive disorder” – a mental health disorder that benefits from therapy. If you feel that you have been experiencing one or more of these events, it often helps to talk to someone with experience in treating depression and addressing your individual struggles.

Treatment for Major Depressive Disorder with Long Island Psychology
Every life can have challenges, and sometimes those challenges can feel very difficult to overcome. We’ve worked with many people that are struggling with what feels like a life altering event, including:
- Death of a Loved One
- Recent Breakup
- Lost Job or Bankruptcy
These events can cause significant challenges. There is no “right” or “wrong” event. Some people experience severe depression after a fight, or a new baby, or a move – all because the event triggered something inside of them that made them feel empty, sad, or listless. Others may have these episodes for what feels like no apparent reason.
There is also no wrong time to get help.
Dr. Marc Shulman and Dr. Atara Wertentheil are Long Island psychologists that have been depression therapists on Long Island for many years, and use approaches such as CBT, Dynamic Experiential Learning, and others to address depression related challenges. It’s our goal to get to know you as a person, so that together we can address the issues you’re struggling with and come up with actions and solutions that will help you not only now – but in years to come as well.
