Therapy for Depression
The only thing more exhausting than being depressed is pretending that you’re not.”
Everybody hurts. We all have a bad day now and then. It’s natural to feel lost or sad, sometimes. But when those feelings of sadness, emptiness, and hopelessness creep up more frequently, they start to feel more intense, or they start to get in the way of your day-to-day life, you may be suffering from depression.
Maybe you are also feeling angry and frustrated about things that may not normally be a big deal, but now they are. Or maybe you’ve lost interest in things you enjoy, have problems falling and staying asleep, and have lost your appetite. When depression hits, you can feel helpless and hopeless that things can get any better. You may even worry you will feel like this forever... what a daunting thought!
Depression, anxiety and problems in relationships often cause deep anguish and pain - just getting by each day can be difficult. We often struggle alone believing things will never get better or that no one could understand. Well-meaning friends and family urge us to “just get over it”, but that often that makes us feel even more isolated.
Therapy can be challenging…but the results are worth it. You can and WILL feel better.
As your therapist, I will guide you and support you through the process of uncovering what’s keeping you stuck and help you achieve the life you desire. Together, we will go deep and explore parts of you that have been hidden under the surface. We’ll bring them to light, take inventory of what’s there, learn how to use your strengths to move you forward, and let go of the things that are no longer serving you. We’ll look at past experiences and how they’ve come to shape who you are today. I’ll help you look at your past from a new perspective – a perspective of strength, courage, and healing.
While this process takes a lot of work and can be painful at times, I will be there to support you and guide you along the way. You will end up feeling so much better. You will feel happier, more peaceful, and more content with yourself.
