TREATMENT

Depression

 Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. According to the National Institutes of Health, “depression is most likely the result of a combination of biological, genetic, psychological, and social factors.”  Depression involves three major spheres of thinking;

Negative self perception “I am worthless” 

Hopelessness ” Nothing will ever get better” 

Isolation  “No one cares about me”

You don’t have to have a reason to be “sad” for depression to show up; it affects anyone and everyone. This condition can be brought on by either environmental factors or chemical interruptions in the brain. Our team of professional counselors will work with you to determine the root cause of your depression. During this process, your therapist will establish an individualized plan of treatment to ensure your personal success.

When should I seek counseling for my depression?

v’iThe symptoms of depression can vary from person to person, however here are some of the most common traits of someone dealing with depression; 

  • Lack of motivation
  • Depressed mood (feeling of hopelessness and worthlessness)
  • Suicidal wishes
  • Increased dependency
  • Avoidance
  • Social withdrawal ( no desire to interact with others)
  • Weight gain/loss
  • Lack of energy
  • Emotional numbness 

If the symptoms above last longer then two months, interfere with your daily functions or cause ideas of self harm, it may be time for you to seek professional help.

Many people struggle or minimize their feelings of depression and convince themselves they do not need therapy.  Recognizing that you need professional counseling is an important first step towards healing. If you begin to feel like your symptoms of depression have become impossible to overcome or are overwhelming for you to handle on your own. It’s time to seek counseling.

 

“Depression robs you of so many things, feeling good, seeing yourself in a realistic way, and energy to engage in required tasks as well as fun activities. It’s okay to ask for help. Depression can be overcome and you do not have to face it alone.”
