Is it normal to feel depressed?

What would be the best therapy for depression?

As counselors, we engage in depression treatment utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT has the highest success rate as an evidence-based model used to treat depression. It is also considered a brief therapy option.

What kind of therapy is used to treat depression?
Depression treatment is done working one-on-one with a client in an individual counseling setting.

What is the fastest way to treat depression?
In very simple terms, CBT should be effective in a short amount of time. Through depression counseling we will help you find hope again by reframing destructive thoughts. Those thoughts will be replaced with statements that are real and true.
We don’t only target bad thoughts though, we work to get your behaviors back on track too. Remember all those things you used to enjoy doing? Those things that made you smile? We can help you get back to enjoying them again!

What is Depression?
Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. 

Let’s be real, depression affects over 16 million people in the US each year. But who likes to feel like this? No one! Depression is a complex illness, that affects multiple systems in your body and we understand what you are going through.

How can depression therapy help?
Our approach to depression counseling is goal-oriented and action-based. Meaning that we take talk therapy to the next level by not only listening, but challenging you to practice skills when you’re outside of the office. We find this to be the most effective way of accomplishing your counseling goals in a brief and focused manner. When a client is actively engaging in their depression counseling, they are taking control of their lives again and this is the most rewarding part of the process.

The short answer is “YES”. People go through depression for many different reasons.

In the therapy world we talk about a thing called situational depression. Situational depression is a short-term form of depression that typically happens after a traumatic or life-changing event that affects your everyday living. It could be a marriage ending, the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, or an unexpected illness. These are all common times when sadness happens… and this is normal.
But this doesn’t mean that you have to live with it. Depression counseling has helped many people live healthier, happier, more balanced lives.
When depression goes untreated it starts affecting multiple areas of your life. Depression can manifest itself in many different ways.
Do you ever experience any of these?

  • Trouble concentrating
  • Fatigue
  • Feelings of guilt
  • Pessimism and hopelessness
  • Insomnia or sleeping too much
  • Restlessness
  • Loss of interest in things once pleasurable
  • Overeating or appetite loss
  • Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings

Depression counseling helps you to work through these symptoms with the goal of alleviating them.
