Depression Therapy

Are you feeling hopeless, isolated, and not your usual self?

Do these thoughts often enter your mind? I am worthless and can’t do anything about it. I feel guilty for just wanting to eat, sleep and be alone. I hate who I am these days. I can’t stop crying, which makes me want to stay away from others. I feel gut-wrenching pain, but no one understands. My life and the world around me are dark. I hate it, but I can’t change it.

If you have had any variation of these thoughts and don’t feel like your usual self, chances are you may be suffering from depression.

I want you to know that you are not alone and there are people who can help. Many of my clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that there are many options available to once again have hope for their lives.

I understand the social stigmas that come with the label of being depressed and thus aim to help clients sort out their environmental, biological, and circumstantial factors while offering support and care through a very dark time in their lives.

If you are hoping to finally lighten this load and feel like yourself again, request an Initial Individual Consultation to start your healing journey. 

Mood Disorders

Does your mood seem to fluctuate and you just can't figure out why?

Unlike Depression, Mood disorders like Bipolar I and Bipolar II are characterized by experiences of high and low moods.

People with Bipolar I Disorder often experience euphoria, decreased need for sleep, impulsivity, and other behaviors that are often first noticed by those around them before they notice them themselves. These manic episodes tend to be short-lived, but can often result in the need for stabilization for the person's safety. Following a manic episode, people usually experience a period of depression, the other end of the mood continuum and where the term bipolar originated. 

People with Bipolar II Disorder tend to experience primarily depressive symptoms, but do experience periods of heightened mood that are not as extreme as those in Bipolar I Disorder. Nevertheless, the cycling of moods can cause significant disruption to relationships and school/work.

These disorders are usually best treated with a combination of counseling and medication. In counseling, we will help you learn to recognize your mood states, identify triggers for mood cycling, and develop a robust set of strategies for effectively managing mood symptoms that interfere with your life.
