Depression

Let us help you.

Feeling sad is a normal part of life, but when the blues turns into a longer-lasting feeling that affects your ability to function normally, you may be depressed. This worried or pessimistic state-of-being can be scary.

Contrary to what some people believe, depression results from a chemical imbalance in the brain. If you suffer from depression, you may feel sad, scared, alone, or even have thoughts of death or suicide. No matter how difficult it seems, you are not alone. We are here to help you work through difficult thoughts and that negative feedback loop playing in your head.

It is not uncommon to also experience other mental health symptoms such as anxiety, irritability, as well as physical symptoms such as difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, tiredness and weight gain or weight loss. Seeking professional help for your depression can improve your health, behavior, and overall life – you just have to reach out for help. We know you have the ability to make the changes you want, and we can help you attain those changes.
