Psychotherapy for Depression
You've lost motivation and fallen into a slump after a sudden loss or change in your life. Without even noticing it, you've become more withdrawn and lost touch with your friends. Or, you have just stopped caring, having lost any sense of pleasure in your work. You know you're feeling depressed. You're wondering whether you need psychotherapy, but you don't know where to begin. Just the idea of asking for help makes you feel ashamed.
You know you're not doing as well at your job as you could be, but you can't help putting things off. You don't know where to begin playing catch-up, and just thinking about it feels draining and overwhelming. You don't feel like yourself, and you're beginning to feel worthless in not being able to get your "groove" back.
Although you're hurting, you keep your feelings to yourself. You feel weak. Sometimes you tell yourself you're just being lazy. All to keep others from finding out how much you're really struggling.
You learned along the way that you have to "keep on keeping on," never slowing down to process your pain, reach out to ask for help, or show vulnerability. You learned to wear a mask--to your friends, family, partners--in order to be strong. But you end up feeling drained and exhausted.
You and I can work together to help you re-engage with life and find joy again. By getting in touch with your thoughts and feelings, you can learn to put your feelings into words and take action to get back control of your life. In the process, I'll help you re-learn how to practice self-care, growing to depend on and trust others in your recovery. I use a variety of evidence-based approaches to accomplish these goals, which can be tailored to your specific needs.
