Therapy for Depression
Depression affects millions of individuals and families in America. If you've been feeling sad and pessimistic, have a hard time finding pleasure in your daily life, have low energy, and feelings of worthlessness, then you might be experiencing some form of depression.
Not everyone experiences depression in the same way. Symptoms can include, but are not limited to, increased fatigue, change in appetite, low self-esteem, change in sleep patterns, irritability and sadness.
When you don't address your depression, it's so easy to remain stuck and feel like everything is happening to you, that life will never get better, and that there is no hope. This doesn't have to be forever.
Acknowledging your depression is a great first step, but now it's time for us to do something about it. This is a process that you shouldn't have to do alone. When depression takes over, it can be difficult to get out of, especially when you don't have the assistance of someone who can lead you through the process of getting back on track, owning your life, and finding value and joy in your relationships, work, and daily activities.
What I expect of you:
Starting the process of individual counseling with a therapist can elicit many feelings. I recognize that you may be in a really tough place in your life, and I appreciate you reaching out for help right now.
With that said, I expect a serious commitment from you in our work together. I expect you to be open to learning, growing, and receiving feedback that will relate directly to your role in your life. I expect you to try not to be defensive, to communicate when you are, and to commit to altering the behaviors that are getting in the way of your growth. When these conditions are met, we have an excellent chance that you will reach your goals, and start living a life free of depression.
