There is a lot of controversy about whether or not you should take medication for depression. Plenty of critics from different sectors say that the medications don't help, they are not better than placebo, they are overprescribed, they are just big business for the pharmaceutical industry, maybe they even make people feel worse!

Well despite all the critics I argue in this video that there is a place for antipressants in the treatment of depression. Yes, other things also help for depression and should not be overlooked: talk therapy, proper nutrition, sufficient sleep, cardiovascular exercise, connecting with friends, meaningful work, exposure to natural sunglight, supplements like Sam-E and St John's Wort, and vitamins like Vitamin D3. Yes, all these things do work and should be part of the treatment program for anyone struggling with depression (or anxiety or other mental / emotional health struggles). But medication is still very important for some people who are suffering. I explain more in the video.

If you think you might be depressed, I strongly encourage you to ignore all the critics and haters and get yourself an appointment with a competent psychiatrist who can evaluate you and tell you if trying a course of antidepressants may help you.

These days, many therapy clients are trying Teletherapy -- but what is it? And is it effective therapy?

Teletherapy is just like in-person therapy except you use your laptop, smartphone, or tablet to communicate with your therapist electronically. You can both see each other's facial expressions and body language, so even though you may be sitting in two different locations, the therapy can be very effective.

The pluses are that many therapy clients find it much more convenient: you can do a psychotherapy session from the comfort of home, your office, your car, etc. without having to commute to your therapist's office. You don't need to sit in a waiting room for your therapist to be ready. You don't need to deal with traffic or finding a parking spot. Because you are doing it from home you may also have greater flexibility when you can do the session: before work, after work, when kids are sleeping, etc.

In my experience, clients really enjoy the added flexibility of being able to have a therapy session wherever they are in the world. One other great bonus is for clients who travel a lot, whether on business or for pleasure, or even clients who want to be able to continue their therapy sessions when they go away for a few days, are able to continue to have their therapy sessions seamlessly without any break in the action.

Some people use Skype, Google Hangouts, Google Duo, or Zoom Meeting among other webcam chat clients. Personally I think Zoom Meeting is the best, and that's the one I like to use with my clients.

If you would like to give teletherapy a shot and see how it feels, feel free to be in touch with me to set up a therapy session.

Did you know you can stream clean, edited versions of your favorite Hollywood movies for the whole family to enjoy on Amazon? Well now you can, thanks to a great product called Clearplay. It's $7.99 a month to subscribe to the Clearplay service, and they have hundreds of popular movies you can stream, all of them edited for inappropriate content. I am a big fan of this service, and I'm very happy I discovered it. Now my kids can enjoy all the movies they want to see, and I can show them the movies knowing that they are not being exposed to inappropriate adult language or content. (Please note, I don't have any financial incentive to recommend Clearplay, I just like it a lot!)

Over the last week there have been 3 mass shootings in the US: Dayton, Ohio where a lone gunman killed 9 people; El Paso, Texas where a young man killed 20 people; and last week 3 people were killed by a young man in Gilroy, California. What is going on? Why are so many young men so angry?

In this video I outline 4 possible reasons that a lot of young men might be very angry. These are:

1) Social Media / Smartphones
2) Pornography
3) "Girl Power"
4) Fatherlessness

A Bear Grylls-inspired nature video of a roughtail rock agama in my backyard. It is, sadly, not a chuckwalla. Still cool though :-)
