Depression can leave you feeling sad, tired and even hopeless. It likes to put a negative spin on everything, even twisting what you believe about yourself and your life. It messes with your ability to feel connected and competent and can even leave you feeling unworthy or a burden. I’ve been there and found my way out. In depression counseling we”ll start where you are. We’ll find language for your experience and begin to develop doable steps and strategies to help you get relief and begin to feel more alive and confident in your life.
