Are you having a difficult time enjoying the activities and people that once brought joy to your life? Although we have all experienced depressive moments in our lives, clinical depression can interfere with your ability to work, sleep, study and function normally.
Do you find yourself experiencing deep moments of sadness, despair and hopelessness?
The therapists here understand that nearly 20% of American adults experienced symptoms of depression that were either mild, moderate, or severe in the past 2 weeks. Depression is an experience that most of us have some familiarity with, however, clinical depression tends to be more severe and persist for longer periods of time. Our therapists can help you understand the causes of depression and the patterns of thoughts and behaviors that make it difficult to break the cycle of sadness. With this increased understanding, you will have the tools to experience a life worth living.
What is Depression?
Depression is more than just feeling sad or having a low mood for a few days. It impacts how we function in our daily lives and can even take a major toll on our body as it effects both the brain and the body. Depression is a constant feeling of deep distress that lasts for at least two weeks and can range from minor to severe levels. While some are biologically prone to experience depression, others may experience life changes or events that create this illness.
