A very popular and pretty teenager came with complaints of ongoing “pit of the stomach” feelings of things not being right. She found it difficult, if not impossible, to feel happy. She had many somatic complaints, as well. She and her family were opposed to taking medications and wanted to try something behavioral. Our evaluation process led to a diagnosis of chronic mild depression, which began early in her teen years. For treatment, we started with Mindfulness Training and gradually added other Cognitive Behavioral therapies. She learned how her mind felt when she was calm, focused, relaxed and, yes, even a bit happy. Over a 20-week period she gradually bloomed into a well-adjusted, excitable, and delighted young woman again. When those nasty “pit of the stomach” feelings recurred she knew what to do to successfully assess her situation and deal with it effectively.
