Depression

Hope for DepressionAre you feeling sad, lonely, withdrawn?

Do you have a lack of energy or interest in activities? Is it hard to concentrate or remember details? Would you describe yourself as pessimistic or hopeless? If this describes you, you may be suffering from depression.

Depression is one of the most common reasons that people seek therapy—so you are not alone. If you feel that life is not going your way or things are out of your control, it’s no wonder you would feel down. Depression can severely affect your quality of life. Depressed people may overeat/undereat, lose interest in outside activities, experience a diminished sex drive, feel anxious, and have trouble sleeping. Other complaints include physical problems—you might have headaches, stomachaches, digestive issues, or other types of aches and pains. At its worst, depression causes suicidal thoughts.

Whatever your symptoms are, it is NO way to live! Depression is a complex disorder that often requires a multi-dimensional approach to treatment. Counseling is a critical component of treatment. The important thing to know right now, is that it IS treatable! You can feel better and live the life you were meant to.

The cost of staying depressed is simply too high. It affects your self esteem, your intimate and social relationships, and your ability to create the life you want for yourself. Depression is not an illness to “wait and see if it gets better.” The sooner you seek help, the sooner we can work to relieve your depressive symptoms. Whatever the cause for your depression is, know that there is HOPE things will improve.
