Most people feel sad or depressed at some point in their lives. Sadness and mild depression are normal reactions to loss, grief, and life challenges. But when the depressed feelings do not go away, worsen, or interfere with the ability to live and enjoy your life, it may be time to get help.
Symptoms of depression include: a depressed mood for most of the day; feeling excessively tired and lacking energy most of the day; feeling worthless and hopeless; difficulty focusing, remembering details, and making decisions; loss of interest in activities that once brought you pleasure; trouble sleeping – either sleeping too much or not enough; changes in eating habits – eating too much or loss of interest in eating; and recurrent thoughts about death or suicide. Depression can affect people of all ages.
Whether the depression developed recently, or has been present for many years, counseling can help. You are not alone. Our highly skilled and trained depression therapists welcome the opportunity to partner with you in your healing journey, helping you move from hopelessness to hopefulness, bringing peace and joy back into your lives.
