Depression and Anxiety Counseling

Depression and Anxiety Counseling

Feelings of depression or anxiety are not uncommon. Going through a divorce, losing a loved one, being diagnosed with a major illness, and other difficult situations can cause a person to feel lonely, confused, overwhelmed, or sad. These feelings are normal reactions to life's stressors.

But some people experience these feelings daily or nearly daily for no apparent reason, making it difficult to carry on with normal, everyday functioning. If this sounds like something you experience, you may be suffering from depression, an anxiety disorder, or both. Oftentimes someone with an anxiety disorder will also suffer from depression or vice versa. The good news is that these are both treatable, separately and together.

Common symptoms may include:
• A sad or anxious mood
• Feeling numb, hopeless, or flat
• Loss of interest or pleasure in activities you once enjoyed
• Decreased energy; feeling fatigued
• Oversleeping or insomnia
• Changes in eating patterns: overeating or under eating
• Irritability
• Thoughts of death or suicide
• Physical complaints that do not respond to treatment

“The marvelous richness of the human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hours would not be half so wonderful if there were no valleys to traverse.” ~Helen Keller
