Treatment of Depression

Over 17 million adults experience depression every year. These numbers have tripled since the COVID pandemic. Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide.

Thankfully, there is hope. We know that people experiencing depression often benefit from individual counseling, when the correct protocol is used. The right counseling can help you regain control over your thoughts and your life.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF DEPRESSION

If you are worried you might be depressed, ask yourself whether you identify with any of the following symptoms:

  • Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness
  • Loss of interests in things you used to enjoy
  • Unnatural tiredness
  • Lack of motivation
  • Appetite changes — eating much more or far less
  • Inability to concentrate — even on easy tasks
  • Uncontrollable negative thoughts
  • Irritability, aggression, and short-temperedness
  • Engaging in reckless behavior
  • Drinking more alcohol than usual
  • Using illegal or prescription drugs to excess
  • Self-loathing — feelings of worthlessness and guilt
  • Unexplained aches and pains — including stomach pains, sore muscles, back pain and headaches

If you answered yes to one or more of these, you might be depressed. Cognitive behavioral therapy might help lead to a solution. 

Because depression has a way of distorting our thoughts and perceptions, it can create a cycle that slowly spirals us deeper into hopelessness. Through a combination of Mindfulness exercises and a process known as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), my clients learn how to stop this cycle and reclaim their power.
