Depression Counseling

DEPRESSION COUNSELING

Depression is not just a case of the blues or feeling down. People who are depressed can’t simply snap out of it.

If you have been struggling with feelings of sadness, lack of energy, and have lost interest in activities you used to enjoy, you may be battling depression.

Depression is a treatable condition. If you think you may be depressed, see if you identify with any of the following statements:

  • I often experience feelings of sadness.
  • I often experience low energy, even if I’ve had enough sleep.
  • I have a strong sense of dread or hopelessness.
  • I’m often irritable for no discernable reason.
  • I often find it hard to focus or concentrate.
  • I have mostly lost interest in sex.
  • I have trouble sleeping.
  • I often feel helpless or worthless.
  • I frequently think about death.
  • I seem to have trouble enjoying ordinary, pleasurable activities.

You don’t have to live with these feelings.
You can feel better.

I treat all my patients with acceptance, compassion and respect. You are not a problem; you are a person. I will understand your unique experience, and then work with you to explore thoughts and emotions, even unprocessed or unconscious feelings that are contributing to your depression.

For many depressed patients, a combination of drug treatment and counseling is very effective.
