The Glacial Weight of Depression Can Keep You Down

Depression is diagnosed as feeling sad or hopeless for 2 weeks or more for much of the day. Experiencing depression may show up as a lack of motivation to complete day to day necessities. This may start out in privacy and invisible to others, through things not brushing teeth, taking showers, ar caring about their appearance. From there the depression gradually effects more of the space around them, becoming disorganized and unkept. They may sleep often and either not have an appetite or eat too much. As the depression grows it exits the private space an may manifest as being late, missing appointments, as well as physical and emotional isolation from friends and family. Depression can also show up as irritability in women, adolescents, or young children.

Liberate the best version of yourself through specialized depression therapy

Therapy for depression often involves addressing a range of challenges and concerns that individuals face in their daily lives. In therapy sessions with clients experiencing depression, several recurring themes and topics emerge, reflecting the multifaceted nature of their struggles. These may include difficulties in engaging in day-to-day activities, such as work, household chores, or hobbies. Many individuals with depression find it challenging to muster the motivation to participate in these activities, leading to feelings of inertia and a sense of stagnation in life.

Treatment may include CBT to identify and challenge negative thought patters & schema therapy to dive deeper into core beliefs that shape individuals’ perceptions of themselves. DBT is also utilized to build a skill set for managing intense emotions, improving interpersonal relationships, as well as enhancing distress tolerance and mindfulness.
