People with depression often find that the activities and relationships which once lifted their mood are now insufficient. They can easily become frustrated and self-critical when nothing seems to help. Depression Counseling with one of our trained therapists can help you treat your depression symptoms.

People can benefit from working on depression in counseling if they experience: 
  • low or irritable mood
  • lack of interest in activities once enjoyed
  • difficulty sleeping or sleeping too much
  • loss in appetite or increases in appetite
  • feeling guilty or hopeless
  • trouble concentrating
  • fatigue or low energy
  • increase in alcohol consumption
  • suicidal thoughts or behaviors

Depression is absolutely treatable, and counseling is often an important component of this treatment. Because depression can be a very isolating and lonely problem, many people find that counseling is a wonderful space to help you feel supported and gather tools to help you lift your mood. Our counselors are here to help you learn to challenge negative thought patterns that leave you feeling guilty, overwhelmed, or hopeless. Counseling can also be a space to help you create and carry out a self-care plan that can prevent or shorten future episodes of depression.
