My approach as a Depression Therapist
People with depression often feel incredibly stuck, hopeless, and unmotivated to accomplish the day-to-day tasks. Depression affects millions of people every day. It is more common than you might think. Even though you feel alone in your thoughts and your sadness, more people than not are experiencing the same or at least have gone through what you are going through right now. As a depression therapist, I hear people say it feels like a stormy cloud that never goes away or they are stuck in mud in which they can’t walk through. It’s so tiring to pick up each foot and walk forward. People who are seeking depression therapy have a hard time reaching out to others because the depression tells them that “no one is going to understand” or they feel embarrassed to tell others why things are so hard. Then, when you’ve tried to talk to some someone about it, others might say, “well just do it… or just feel better.” Others might view people who struggle with depression like it’s a simple quick fix or an easy change of the mindset. At times, depression can feel uncontrollable, and it takes effort to work your way out of it. My approach to depression therapy is meeting people where they are at and giving others unconditional positive regard, so they don’t feel ashamed or embarrassed to talk about their sadness and hopelessness. I help people identify small goals so they can take gradual steps to get better. I support people in their small victories of success. I encourage people who are feeling stuck to seek out simple and practical activities that will give them joy. I help educate people on depression, how it affects the body and mind, and relationships. I dive in with people on figuring out the root of the depression so people can become more aware of their tendencies, triggers, and patterns that have gotten them stuck in the first place. Depression Therapy is a good place to identify what it is you are grateful for and to re-calibrate what’s important in your life.
