Therapy for Depression

You wake up & you're still exhausted. How can that be after 12 hours of sleep? The thought of what the day will bring is crippling and you have little motivation to accomplish anything. Your family is frustrated, asking you to get your life together. You would...if you could just concentrate. You begin to question if life would be easier for them if you weren't here...

That's depression talking. It robs us of our joy, friendships, career advancement or even just having fun. Life eventually becomes bland and dull. 

 

Check your Symptoms:

  • Loss of interest or pleasure in doing things

  • Feeling down, depressed, or hopeless

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Feeling exhausted or having little energy

  • Changes in appetite (eating too much or too little)

  • Feeling bad about yourself

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Moving or talking more slowly than normal

  • Having thoughts you would be better off dead

If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, it's important to reach out for help, because treatment works. 

 

I know we all do that thing, where we just ignore it, and think to ourselves, I just hope it goes away.... 

To be honest, depression is one of those things that might just go away if you wait it out. The unfortunate part is that it might not -- it might get worse and worse, until you're feeling stuck in this. If it does eventually go away on its own, research has shown us that you are more likely to experience a depressive episode again sometime in the future.

Treatment works. It takes some courage to reach out when you need help and I know it can be hard to open up about how you're really feeling -- but you don't deserve to suffer. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is one of the most effective treatments for depression, because it helps create lasting change in the way you see the world. 

You can feel like yourself again.
