Thoughts of worthlessness, helplessness?
Loss of motivation?
We all experience a range of emotions that come and go;
joy, confusion, excited, angry, sadness, worry, guilt, regret.
Those emotions, thoughts and responses are what make us human.
It’s when we experience this distress more intensely, more frequently,
and for longer periods that we may notice an impact on
our ability to work, to be with friends and family, or carry out daily activities.
· Persistent sadness, anxiety, loneliness
· Feelings of hopelessness
· Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness
· Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities
· Changes in sleep (too much or too little)
· Changes in appetite
· Difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions
Thoughts of death or suicide, or suicide attempts
Although not everyone who experiences
a shift in mood or functioning has depression,
it can be the opportunity to prevent a
mental health problem from developing.
If these symptoms seem familiar,
give us a call to discuss how we
might be able to help break free
from depressive symptoms.
· Love and care for yourself
· Respond to stress or challenges
· Carry out work, school, and daily tasks
· Engage with your family, friends and support system
· Feel about the future
Individual Counseling can be an opportunity to explore
the nature of such overwhelming, persistent and
debilitating emotions while providing a safe space to heal.
Our therapists collaboratively work with you to realign a perspective or emotional state which has kept you ‘stuck’, isolated, feeling worthless, even hopeless.
Through our work together, as we work at your pace, you will begin to get back on your path the life you envisioned, shedding the weight of depression.
You will work toward developing the necessary tools and coping strategies to become more adaptive as life’s challenges arise.
We require a release of information from you to speak
to anyone regarding your care.
As appropriate, our therapists can provide you with referrals to a
Primary Care Physician or a Psychiatrist for a formal evaluation to
determine if medication can be beneficial to address your presenting symptoms.
We recognize medication is a personal choice that is made
between you and your prescribing physician.
