Depression has some similarities to sadness but extends beyond just a few days of feeling down. If you are experiencing a depressed mood most of the day, nearly every day continuing for an extended period of time, you may be going through depression. Other symptoms of depression are diminished interest in all or most activities, weight changes, slowing down, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness and guilt, inability to concentrate, and suicidal thoughts. Together we can go over your symptoms and find ways to cope that best work for you.
Are you feeling hopeless, isolated, and not your usual self?
Do these thoughts often enter your mind?
- I am worthless and can’t do anything about it.
- I feel guilty for just wanting to eat, sleep and be alone.
- I hate who I am these days.
- I can’t stop crying, which makes me want to stay away from others.
- I feel gut-wrenching pain, but no one understands.
- My life and the world around me are dark. I hate it, but I can’t change it.
If you have had any variation of these thoughts and don’t feel like your usual self, chances are you may be suffering from depression.
I want you to know that you are not alone and there are people who can help. Many of my clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that there are many options available to once again have hope for their lives.
I understand the social stigmas that come with the label of being depressed and thus aim to help clients sort out their environmental, biological, and circumstantial factors while offering support and care through a very dark time in their lives.
