Depression is misunderstood, widely experienced and for those who suffer from it, they are ripe for judgment from those whom have never had it. We know some things about depression. We know that it can be chemical but it is also situational. For whatever we know, we do know this. Depression is real and it can have devastating effects on a person, which impacts every aspect of life. It affects choices around food, alcohol, money, sex life, addictions, job performance, exercise, family relationships, parenting, etc. There is help. It is hard work. That’s the truth. There is a way through this pretty common part of life. If you think you are depressed, you probably are. There is no shame ....

Negative core beliefs, or what we believe about ourselves, are often a major contributor to depression. Counseling can help you identify and change negative core beliefs, as well as develop coping skills for dealing with everyday stressors that can make depression worse. Through therapy, you can gain new perspectives on problems with family, friends and co-workers. If you are taking medications for depression, therapy can also help you understand and cope with any side effects you may be experiencing.
