What is Depression?

Depression can affect how you think, feel, and behave. Clinically elevated symptoms are often prolonged (2+ weeks), cause significant levels of distress, and greatly impact your ability to function in your everyday life. Here are some examples of some of the different ways we may feel depressed.

Thoughts

Depression can make it difficult for you to focus or concentrate, pessimistic in the way you interpret your experiences, and lead to thoughts of death or suicide.

Feelings

In addition to persistent feelings of sadness and/or a disinterest in previously enjoyed activities, depression can make you feel hopeless, worthless, alone, indifferent, ashamed, or unmotivated.

Behaviors

Depression can also impact your physical health or your ability to work, to take care of household responsibilities, or to develop and maintain meaningful relationships with those around you.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Tanaka since 2013. I have observed first-hand her ability to provide expert psychological services carefully tailored to the individual needs of each client. She does so with the utmost warmth and empathy.

Dr. Tanaka is truly dedicated to providing the best service to her clients--which is evident in the
overwhelmingly positive feedback provided by her clients. I wholeheartedly recommend her as a psychologist. San Diego is fortunate to have her as a mental health resource.
