Depression

Depression is a mental health disorder that affects mood, including how you feel, think, and behave. Everyone feels sad sometimes, but when it starts to affect your ability to perform daily tasks and your ability to enjoy things that typically bring you happiness, you may be suffering from depression. The symptoms of depression vary from person to person, but often include feeling miserable without a clear reason why, anxiety, agitation, insomnia or sleeping too much, hopelessness, changes in eating, and/or foggy thinking. Depression may also cause recurrent thoughts of death or suicide (or even a wish that it would all 'stop' in an abstract sense). If you think you might be suffering from depression, a qualified mental health therapist can help. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s depression experts today!

In therapy you can expect to identify factors that are contributing to your depression and learn how to effectively cope with them. We will also identify negative thought patterns that may be contributing to feelings of hopelessness and work to change them. You will also develop concrete skills to relieve suffering and prevent later bouts of depression. These skills may include new ways to cope with challenges and creating a personal plan that includes positive lifestyle changes. ​

The majority of my clients are experiencing some level of depression and/or anxiety, even if that is not the presenting issue. Depression looks different for everyone, so I don't look at it as a one size fits all approach. We need to identify what depression looks and feels like for each person in order to create a targeted plan and begin the healing process. Relief comes in various forms, and there is usually a combination of behavioral, cognitive, and feeling work involved in the process.

Do you often feel like you are not enough, some days, you may even feel completely worthless, like you cannot do anything right. Are you feeling overcome with feelings of guilt and shame, crying spells, and unexplained gut-wrenching pain that no one understands. You are not alone over 70 million adults in the U.S live with depression. Depression is more than a bad case of the blues that you can “just snap out of”.

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy has been a top choice for people suffering from depression, especially "treatment-resistant" depression, and has shown the ability to help due to rapid mood enhancing effects within a few hours of the medication and increased neuroplasticity of the brain to rewire with new connections. Integration is key to process what comes up during your experience and take full advantage of the neuroplastic window with new skills, habits and more positive thoughts.
