Living with depression hurts ... just getting from one day to the next feels like an effort. You may experience chronic sadness, irritability, and depression can be coupled with anxiety. Research shows that a combination of medication and talk therapy is most effective for treating depression. I can help you learn simple techniques to feel better immediately, such as changing irrational and unreasonable thoughts. I can also suggest non-drug therapies as appropriate. Finally, some depression is related to one's situation, so just changing some things in your life can make a BIG difference!! You don't have to live this way - you CAN feel better!!

Everyone feels sad at times, but depression occurs when sadness goes on over time and impacts your daily life. We can work together discover what's going on and explore ways (talking, changing behavior and responses, and possibly involving a physician for medication evaluation) to help you back to where you want to be. To ask questions or schedule an appointment, contact Angela McDowell.

The struggle you face is real, and I am committed to walking alongside you to help you better understand why depression can be so disruptive and to develop methods of dealing with depression so that you can experience freedom and healing.

Depression is one of the most common, least understood, and least treated difficulties facing individuals and families today. Sometimes it can seem like a dark cloud simply won’t leave us alone, and we’re waiting for the sun to come burn it away. Effective treatment for depression addresses both external factors--like a person’s environment--and internal factors--such as thought and behavior patterns. I enjoy helping my clients regain their zest for living and once again enjoy being with family and friends and living out their God-given purpose.

Depression is often the symptom of a story unprocessed, a chemical imbalance, or extremely pent up anger. If your story is about staying invisible your whole life, perhaps being invisible isn’t working for you any longer and depression has covered you in a dark cloud as you try to be seen. Or perhaps you have an untold story about that one moment in middle school when the bully found you alone in the bathroom. What did you believe about yourself afterward? How did it affect your shame? Depression can also be a chemical imbalance and might require medication for a season. Perhaps even being on the medication is a source of pain and it would be nice to couple medication with counseling.

Depression is more common than most people realize, but while it's not easy to recover, there is great hope. Using compassion and a supportive environment, as well as learning some tools, one can get back to a good level of motivation and functioning. For example, some tools are helping people understand how they think and how that contributes to the repetitive thinking they tend to experience.
