“A depressing and difficult passage
has prefaced every page I have turned in life.”
– Charlotte Brontë
Do you ever have thoughts like these?
- I am worthless and can’t do anything about it.
- I feel guilty for just wanting to eat, sleep and be alone.
- I hate who I am these days.
- I can’t stop crying, which makes me want to stay away from others.
- I feel gut wrenching pain, but no one understands.
- My life and the world around me are dark. I hate it, but I can’t change it.
If you’ve had thoughts like these and don’t feel like your usual self, chances are you may be suffering from depression.
Depression often emerges when we’re confronted by thoughts and feelings that overwhelm us. As a way to cope, we sometimes shut down. Tragically, this can cost us our sense of aliveness, joy, and meaning. Working with a therapist provides a safe relationship in which to address the underlying causes of your symptoms and rediscover what makes life worth living. Sometimes it feels like you can’t go on another day, and recovering from depression can take time. We know there is light at the end of the tunnel, though, and having someone to walk there with you can make all the difference. Let us help you return to your life!
