Do you feel down, depressed, or hopeless?

Do you feel like you’re just not yourself?  Do your favorite things in life just not seem fun or enjoyable anymore?

Many people think that depression is just feeling sad. That can be part of depression and so can feeling more numb, “blah,” or hopeless.

You may be experiencing depression if these symptoms feel familiar to you:

Trouble sleeping, or sleeping too much,

Feeling irritable, or feeling down,

Trouble concentrating at work or school, or on normal daily activities,

Loss of appetite, or eating more than usual,

Not enjoying your favorite activities, or not wanting to be around others,

Feeling fatigued or having less energy than usual.

Depression can happen to anyone, at any age or stage in life.  There is hope.

Whether you’re going through difficult times in life, or you just feel down for unknown reasons, we can help.  

Start feeling better, and get your life back.

In therapy, we will use solution-focused therapies, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), to help you develop and practice skills and techniques that you can use to recover and get your life back.  We will help you learn to recognize destructive thought patterns and how they impact you.  We will then work on challenging and changing those thoughts to improve your mood and start feeling better.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is recognized as the gold standard for treating depression.  Call or text us at 815-245-6669, or email to learn more about how we can help you.
