Depression

Some people describe depression as feeling alone, even though they are surrounded by people.  Others describe it as the inability to envision a hopeful future - like looking forward through a gloomy fog.   Counseling can help.

Depression prevents you from living the life you were meant to.  

At Denver Wellness Center we are committed to helping you find happiness and get back to your life's goals.  Depression can affect people at a certain time in their life, or be lurking under the surface for years.  Depression can look and feel different for different people, so it is important to talk to a professional if you think you may be depressed.  You may be depressed if you're experiencing some of the following:

  • Overwhelming sadness
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or hopelessness
  • Frequent crying
  • No longer enjoying what you used to
  • Loneliness or isolation
  • Feeling "empty"
  • Fatigue or loss of energy
  • Irritability 
  • Thought of suicide

Depression is common, affecting millions of individuals around the world.  Additionally, there are multiple causes to depression, including life events, personal factors (genetics and family history), and chemical changes in the brain and body.  Due to the complex and varied nature of depression, it is important to find a counselor who can provide an individualized treatment approach to address your depression.   At Denver Wellness Counseling, our therapists are ready to help you take your first step in feeling better.  Often times, just reaching out to a counselor offers an instant feeling of connection, empowerment, and relief.   Meeting with a qualified counselor can help you on your journey to self-exploration and growth.  While in treatment for depression at Denver Wellness Counseling, you may work on identifying patterns that contribute to depression,  learn and practice psychological skills to ease the depression, make plans to engage in activities that foster positive feelings, find and address the root cause of the depression, and explore your values in order to contribute to a more meaningful existence.  

At Denver Wellness Counseling our therapists are ready to assess and treat your unique experience of depression by offering well-researched approaches in the context of a safe, healing, relationship.
