Counseling for Depression

563555992Right now, you feel shut down.

Shaking your sadness seems impossible. Some mornings, you don’t want to get out of bed.

Showing up for everyone who needs you leaves no energy left over for you.

The smile you show the world is fake to hide the very real loneliness inside.

You don’t bother sharing your feelings with anyone because you think, “How could anyone possibly understand?”

While feeling disconnected from yourself, others, and life, you strive to do what you can to get through each day.

Happiness is a word no longer in your vocabulary.

Inside, you feel numb, which makes you wonder, “When was the last time I felt truly happy?”

Sometimes, a switch seems to go off, and you angrily explode. That anger knows no bounds because everyone, especially yourself, is a target.

You can’t stop beating yourself up. All the mistakes in your life start spiraling in your head – robbing you of any happiness.

Navigating life while carrying depression along for the ride makes the trip burdensome.

Depression can hang around for a while and bring irritability, frustration, guilt, and anxiety. Carrying all those feelings inside can make it hard to talk to people.

Each day, it feels like a negative cloud keeps following you around.

We all feel sad occasionally, but if your sadness and negative thoughts are lingering and interfering with your daily life, it is time to get help.

You don’t have to suffer alone. I’m here to walk beside you and help you with this.

Therapy can make dealing with depression easier.

Working together with care, I will help you access the tools to move from a dysregulated state into a more regulated emotional state.

There are several ways we can help you deal with your depression.

First, we need to understand what might be triggering your depression. Identifying the trigger provides us with insight on how to overcome your emotional response. Second, we will explore the source of the negative thoughts and work to reframe them. Third, we will find new ways to work with feelings and sensations in your body, so you can shift from feeling stuck with your emotions.

Let’s work together on this. Call me at (908) 214-7166 for a free consultation to learn how I can help you.
