Therapy for Depression
Are you feeling hopeless, isolated, and not your usual self? Just exhausted by the heaviness of everyday life?
Do these thoughts often enter your mind?
- I am worthless and can’t do anything about it.
- I hate who I am these days.
- I can’t stop crying, which makes me want to stay away from others.
- No one understands.
- My life sucks and I can’t change it.
If you have had any variation of these thoughts and don’t feel like your usual self, we get it.
It is scary to have these thoughts and sometimes the worst part about it all is how hopeless those thoughts can lead you to feel. We want you to know that you are not alone and we can help. Many of our clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not have to own them. There is hope for relief from those depressive, heavy thoughts.
Not everyone understands depression, so it is hard to be optimistic when you feel this way. People have probably offered you simplistic solutions like “think positive thoughts” or “do a gratitude journal” or “take a nice walk outside”. While people who care about you are well-intended in their advice, sometimes those pieces of advice can make depression even worse. “Well great. Now I can’t even do the simple things to make myself feel better”.
Depression is complex. Don’t let anyone fool you. How you are feeling is real – and it is heavy. But there are tools that we can teach you, solutions to lighten the load so you can feel like yourself again. Can you picture it? The vibrancy and full color of getting back to how you used to feel?
Here is the truth – depression is like a looming dark cloud. It isn’t you. It’s a fog that is covering you. We want to show you ways to lift it. Remove it. Get back to who you were before it showed up. You don’t have to give in. You want to know how we know? If you are reading this right now, AH-HA, there is still hope! You found us and our website because you hope for change in you!
Still feeling skeptical? Totally fair. That is why we offer a free 15-minute phone consultation with one of our therapists so you can make sure that you feel like they have the skills to help you before you book an appointment. Call us today – we are happy to hear from you.
