I have worked for many years with people who are suffering from depression. Depression can manifest in a number of ways- lack of interest in activities that previously made you happy, low energy, a decrease or increase in appetite, a sense of hopelessness, substance usage etc. When one experiences sadness which is pervasive it can be very troubling and frightening. One's outlook on life when depressed can seem very bleak and as thought it may never lift. However, talking about ones feelings about feeling depressed with a skilled caring professional is one way to help to start alleviate these feelings.

In treating mood problems, the most important piece in collaborating is to find rays of hope in your life. What did you love to do before that you no longer enjoy? What are/were your interests in life? Who are the people in your life you want to feel closer to? What are your strengths? How can we interupt habitual feelings of hopelessnes, by changing the way you think about triggers that lead you to depressed feelings? How can we challenge negative or unrealistic thinking? With sensitive, open communication in sessins, we can find answers to these questions that can curtail habitual depressive thought and feelings. Coping skills can be taught and mastered.

Sadness vs. Depression? Which is it? Treatable YES! Everyone feels sad or 'blue' on occassion. People tend to grieve over a loss, but usually, the feelings of grief tend to lessen over time. Depression occurs when feelings of extreme sadness or despair last for at least 2 weeks or longer and tend to interfere with activities of everyday living. Deperessed feelings include helplessness, hopelessness and even thoughts of death and possibly suicide. People with these feelings may feel overwhelmed. Causes may be from body chemistry which influence mood and thought. Chronic illness can accompany depression. Start feeling better. Give me a call and make an appointment now. Dr. Sobo

People who experience depression share similar symptoms(from mild to severe) however, how each person arrives there is unique to the individual. I work with clients to identify the process of how their particular depression works and is maintained. Some depression needs additional assistance of a medical evaluation and medication support while others don't. Once a person can identify and interrupt their automatic process of depressing their needs,wants, desires they are on their way to having tools on how to live life. If the process has been engaged in for a long period of time and has become an automatic habitual way of being this could involve a commitment to long term work.

Depression and Anxiety are the number one mental health issues in the United States. Most people who suffer from depression don't get help for it, instead they suffer alone. Rather medicating it away, therapy can help you understand the roots of the depression and/or anxiety and learn specific tools to find relief from it. You don't have to continue living with sadness.
