Depression Counseling

Moving your way out of depression can be tough.

You are not alone in this struggle. Over 20 million adults in the U.S., or about 8% of adults, suffer with symptoms of depression.

Depression actually has a number of causes; from genetic, situational, biological, or even environmental. The good news is that having depression doesn’t make you weak or a bad person. And, treatment can help.

You may have discovered that depression seeps into many areas of your life; from the way you think, feel, and behave, to day-to-day functioning. It can change your ability to go to school and work, or take care of your health and family. Depression really can strip a person of a sense of wellbeing.

Symptoms may include:

  • Disinterest in doing things you normally enjoy
  • Persistent sad, or anxious mood
  • Hopelessness, lack of motivation, or interest in life
  • Pessimism
  • Sense of worthlessness
  • Decreased energy
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
  • Sleep disruption or poor quality

I’ve been there and I can help.

When we work together, we will look at your situation, and develop a treatment plan specific to you. On this journey, I will be your guide. As you have the best information about you, you can tell me what you’ve found that helps you feel better, and what you have tried that doesn’t seem to help.
