IS LIFE FEELING DULL?
Do you feel stuck in a rut?
Do you feel you are living in a dark or foggy cloud of negative thoughts about yourself or life?
Have you gone through a tough situation and don’t seem to be able to move forward?
Do you wonder if you’ll ever find true happiness again?
Are you ready for a brighter, lighter future?
Do you feel an overwhelming sense of numbness? Maybe a constant feeling of sadness and lack of motivation ? At times, these feelings get in the way of enjoying things you once were very passionate about such as hobbies, careers, and relationships.
It often doesn't end there. Feelings of worthlessness and hopelessness may come up, leaving you to wonder what life’s true purpose is and how you fit in it. You are left to wonder how “good” you are at parenting, relationships, your jobs, or your friendships. It may even make us wonder if our looks are “good enough” or “appealing to others.” Those thoughts become overwhelming and exhausting.
You may have also noticed changes in your sleeping patterns and eating habits. These can go either way, either eating too much or too little, or sleeping more or less, or simply interrupted sleep patterns resulting in feeling fatigued every morning. It doesn't help that you have to get up and take care of your countless responsibilities that aren't concerned if you feel depressed.
While depression doesn't wait for the "right" time to show up, it can often start after a life changing event, like the loss of someone, the end of a relationship, not being able to attain a goal, too much stress, amongst other reasons. Often people look for different things to escape the weight of depression. Unfortunately that could lead to excessive alcohol consumption or drug use.
For others, depression appears to be without a particular reason. They experience negative thoughts about the self and life, such as general unhappiness and lack of motivation in doing things and socializing like once before.

Counseling is a great resource for individuals seeking relief from the sadness, lack of motivation, numbness and loss of self. It is a space to find relief and freedom from depression and explore how you can become yourself again.
Depression counseling helps individuals identify what is getting in the way, how depression may have developed and what tools are needed to help overcome the obstacles. Together we can create a personalized therapy plan to help reduce the symptoms of depression in a
safe, comfortable, and confidential environment.
We can help you reconnect with yourself, your loved ones, and activities you once enjoyed. Our approach is one that focuses on strengths and solutions with the goal of regaining feelings of motivation, general emotional satisfaction, and hope.
THERAPY FOR YOU WITH A DEPRESSION COUNSELOR. RECLAIM YOUR LIFE
Many choose to on their depression individually; however, you have the option of working collaboratively with a significant other or with the whole or parts of the family. Couples and family counseling can help in cases where your loved one may not realize that they are depressed or are not interested in seeking seeking help.
At times, depression can be the cause that brings couples to couples or marriage counseling, as one partner may present less interested in the other person, based on general feelings of sadness or depression. Similarly, families may seek family therapy due to experiencing one of the family members as isolating, detached or irritable rooted in issues of depression. We can offer the experience and training to effectively help you reduce the stressors that depression cause and live a fulfilled life.
Myself or someone I know are having thoughts of suicide, is depression counseling appropriate?
Suicidal thoughts can certainly be a symptom of depression, and can be treated with depression counseling. However, if there is a feeling of immediacy or urgency, calling 911 or going to the nearest hospital is the best approach to take first.
