Did you know that the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that 80% of adults in the United States said that depression has caused “at least a bit” of difficulty when it comes to dealing with work, home, and other social activities? In the last year, roughly 11 million adults reported a depressive episode that led to “severe impairment.” And a study conducted by the National Institute of Health found that adults suffering from Major Depressive Disorder are 64% more likely to be affected by coronary artery disease.

Our doctors know that the feelings that go along with being depressed are some of the most uncomfortable. These feelings make it difficult to engage meaningfully with family and friends or focus and succeed at work. Therefore, we believe your therapy and healing should be the most important aspect of your life when you are experiencing feelings of depression. We do this by providing top-notch treatment, giving you time off work to focus on your recovery, and helping you through the California Short-Term Disability Insurance and Human Resources paperwork process.
