Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.

Depression is a common co-occurring issue with addiction. Most of the time you are self-medicating depression with addictive behavior. Why does your system "depress"? For most people (unless you have an organic brain disease or injury) depression is situational. When you address the underlying issues surrounding the situation and start doing the next right thing the depression lifts.

Treatment for depression may require dietary and lifestyle changes, talking with a physcian or counselor, and possibly taking medications. If you are extreemly depressed or suicidal, treatment would include admission into a hospital ASAP. As a counselor, I may be able to help you learn to manage your depression and help relieve your depressive symptoms. You may become less sad, sleep and concentrate better, cry less, have less negative self talk, be less irritable, have more energy, be less angry and dissapointed. Once these depressive symptoms are lessened, you may find that your stress level is significantly decreased and you are more happy in your marriage, work, and life in general.
