Depression is a common condition that can be serious and affects individuals of all ages. Most people will first experience depression in their late teens or early adulthood. If it goes untreated, it can greatly impact your life. When depression is left undiagnosed or untreated, the likelihood of suicidal thoughts and self-harm can increase and threaten your sense of well-being. Seeking depression therapy is crucial to improving your quality of life and can help you lead a more positive, balanced life.
All individuals deserve to live a life of joy, fulfillment, and happiness. I’m here to help you identify tools to cope with depression and re-center your thoughts from negative to positive.
Living with depression can often make one feel sad and empty, and can affect eating and sleeping patterns.

If you experience one or more of these symptoms, know that you are not alone and treatment is available. Regardless of your unique situation or age, depression therapy is a way to combat your depression and live the life you deserve.
Most people experiencing depression feel as if they have a black cloud hanging over their head, and even when something positive happens, it may go unnoticed. Simple daily activities such as getting out of bed and bathing seem strenuous and impossible. Other times, daily life stressors can become too much to handle and make a person feel more hopeless, helpless, and alone. These feelings of hopelessness come naturally with depression, but there are ways to combat these emotions. depression therapy helps individuals through their journey, and helps rebuild your happiness, one step at a time.
