Depression creates hopelessness and helplessness. Depression inhibits your ability to function.
Counseling can bring your life back under your control.
Depression is sometimes referred to as the “common cold” of mental health. Most of us feel depressed at one time or another for short periods. But when feelings of sadness, loss, anger, or frustration interfere with everyday life for a longer period of time that’s where I come in.
How you are feeling?
Sad – Tired – Isolated
Helpless – Feeling Worthless
Unmotivated – Lacking Energy
Lack of pleasure in usual activities
Medication is only Temporary Relief
Medication reduces symptoms and provides temporary relief at best. Medicine gives the appearance of calmness, while nothing is getting resolved. It numbs you. You can lose your zest for life.
Talk Therapy is a Permanent Solutions
The root cause of depression is usually low self-esteem – not loving yourself. Turning to alcohol or drugs can provide an escape from your woes, but it doesn’t help you deal with them or heal them. Talk therapy, not medication, is the best way to reduce depression. Talk therapy helps you discover the underlying causes of depression and helps you feel connected again.
