Treatment for Depression

Ozkare treatment for depression

Dr. Ozkarahan treats Major Depressive Disorder, Persistent Depressive Disorder, Bipolar II Depression, and the depression that can be associated with Anxiety as well as Adjustment Disorders. Her initial consultations and ongoing sessions are virtual but with the added benefit of meeting in person when requested in the Flatiron District in Manhattan, NYC. Her ongoing visits consist of virtual psychotherapy with or without medication.

Depression can be a chronic, debilitating condition that affects multiple areas including but not limited to sleep, appetite, energy, concentration, motivation, and one's functioning in their work, personal, and social lives. As such, Dr. Ozkarahan believes a comprehensive, thorough, and holistic approach will best treat depression in a way that not only provides immediate comfort but ongoing sustained relief.

As a psychiatrist, psychotherapist, and lifestyle psychiatrist, Dr. Ozkarahan integrates a variety of modalities into her treatments. She provides practical and conversational psychotherapy that includes supportive, interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral, and psychodynamic approaches. She educates her patients on medication options and, when necessary, prescribes them in a conservative and collaborative manner. To help focus on all aspects of health, Dr. Ozkarahan also promotes healthy lifestyle modifications in addition to her role as a psychotherapist and psychopharmacologist. She will aid her patients in creating a realistic plan to improve their nutrition, adhere to physical exercise, manage their weight, and stabilize their sleep. She will also help patients prioritize self-care, mindfulness, and social relationships to optimize their quality of life.
