Depression Treatment

Do you feel sad all the time?

Unable to do anything?

Have you lost interest or pleasure in things?

Depression during the Covid-19 Pandemic
Social isolation, unending Zoom calls, inability to engage in the activities you love. The Coronavirus crisis has significantly impacted the mental health of the entire world. If you are experiencing depressive symptoms for the first time, or if you are feeling your depression more than usual, then you are not alone.

We are sad that we can’t see our family and friends. We can’t go to the gym or favorite workout activities without being worried. The near constant screen time has taken a toll on our sleep, and work is so much more intense that it was before. The state of world is such that it is easy to be pessimistic and hopeless. Simple things might be taking you longer to do and you might have trouble making decisions when before you were a quick action-taker. These are signs of depression and you are one of the millions of people around the world feeling this way. What we are dealing with is well beyond what most of us were every prepared for emotionally and socially.

I can help you cope via Online Therapy. Reach out to me for a free consultation to see if we could work together.

You may be depressed, a clinical condition which goes beyond feeling blue. People with depression are unable to function properly at home, work or school, and find it difficult to feel happy even when things “are going well.” They may even have thoughts of ending their lives, because it just does not seem worth it anymore.

Depression can happen to anyone

More than 264 million people worldwide suffer from depression, according to the World Health Organization. Depression often co-occurs with other medical illnesses and is more prevalent in women than in men. Sometimes a series of traumatic incidents can set off chronic depression, and sometimes it comes out of nowhere. According to Harvard Health, there are many possible causes of depression, including faulty mood regulation by the brain, genetic vulnerability, stressful life events, medications, and medical problems.

Depression Treatment Works

There is much evidence-based research to show that therapy in conjunction with medication is a powerful and effective way to treat depression. In my own experience, therapy gives people with a depression a space to unburden themselves, go deeper and take charge of their feelings. Some of my clients have experienced a profound change in their sense of self after a few sessions of therapy.

You May Be Thinking

What’s the point? It won’t work.

While it may seem hopeless, particularly when you are depressed, to get any treatment, you owe it to yourself to get professional help. Study after study points to the effectiveness of therapy in alleviating depression, and I know that while it can take a while to feel the fog lift, it does and it is possible to feel joy again. I use a combination of proven methods to counter negative thoughts and process feelings in a meaningful way.
