Feeling alone, like you can’t deal with one more thing, or like you just can’t get motivated to do the things you used to want to do?
You know you should be content or happy, but you just aren’t. You’re not sure why. Learn how Atlanta depression counseling can help.
You feel like a dark cloud has come over you. It makes it extremely difficult to feel motivated to start your day. You see other people smile, and you wish you felt as happy as they do, but you don’t. When you get this way, your thinking becomes negative. You notice you start to judge yourself. You don’t like that you’re feeling down, and you wish you could control it. Since you can’t control the dark cloud feeling, you become anxious about it. You get mad that it’s there. You think you ‘should’ be able to snap out of it.
As counselors who provide Atlanta counseling for depression, we know it can be a confusing issue. Many people don’t understand that you can’t just ‘snap out of it’. There’s no magic solution. But, you should know that you are not alone. There are options available to you.
If you are dealing with depression it can be difficult to know what to do or where to go for help. A Buckhead, Atlanta therapist can help you with your situation. When working with clients, we take an approach that meets you where you are at in your journey.
Symptoms of Depression can include:
Excessive crying or lack of emotions
Feeling low mood a lot of the time
Lack of energy
Lack of motivation to complete tasks
Lack of enjoyment during activities that used to be enjoyable
Thoughts of death or suicide
Thoughts of self-harm
While taking the first step can be difficult, ATlanta depression counseling can help.
When feeling depressed people can often isolate, which can make depressive symptoms worse. Choose to take a step out of that today. Call an Atlanta depression counselor who can teach you about the symptoms of depression, and learn ways to combat them.
Difficult emotions can be tough to walk through, and you don’t have to face them alone. A Buckhead, Atlanta therapist can work with you to talk through your feelings, experience healing, and work towards living an emotionally healed life.
Many times someone who hasn’t walked through depression doesn’t know how to help. People mean well, but they can say the very thing you don’t want to hear. Or, they have the expectation that you simply move past it quickly. That’s not how true depression works. We take a different approach. We understand how taxing depression can be on your energy, emotions, well being, motivation, and life. We know that sometimes it’s not easy to “snap out of it.” We understand that depression can be so gripping that it paralyzes you or grips you so intensely that you can’t get the energy to take the next step.
Let’s work together in our Atlanta counseling office to help you develop an understanding the dynamics of your specific circumstances, and build the support and skills needed to continue moving forward in your life. Call today to find out more.
