You can feel depression everywhere. In your body you can feel mired in the mud, seemingly unable to move. In your mind you can notice racing thoughts, feeling guilty about anything and everything, or feeling worthless. You may find yourself struggling to suppress thoughts of ending your life.
Therapy Can Help
Research on depression has shown that a variety of skills can help: improving your sleep, doing something outdoors, re-engaging with activities or hobbies, and spending time with meaningful relationships. Additionally, learning to more effectively deal with persistent negative thoughts can help improve how you feel. We can create a plan specific to you and your life that will improve your symptoms.
Yet, often skills are not enough. Depressive symptoms are your mind’s way of getting your attention. Losses, trauma, faith or spiritual questions, relationship difficulties, and adjustment problems are just some of many potential causes of depression. We can work to understand the underlying causes of your depression and help you find long-term relief.
