Individual Counseling

Depression

Do you feel sad or hopeless?
Are you wondering if life is worth living?

You may be suffering from depression.
Depression requires treatment of the body, mind and soul.  We can help you:
  • Find the connection between your sadness and your thoughts.

  • Discover what you are getting out of being sad?

  • Look at many different ways of thinking.

  • Choose thinking that changes your feelings.

  • Learn the skill of being neutral and objective about painful events such as the loss of a loved one or difficult life circumstances.
