Depression can strike at any time in our lives. For some people, it begins after a traumatic event, while for others, it happens without a clear reason. If you are struggling, know that Counseling Works can help you find answers to your questions. With a depression therapist, Mokena patients can discuss their feelings with a licensed specialist. We help patients discover productive ways to handle the ups and downs they experience, especially those related to major life transitions, strained family dynamics, relationship issues and other situations. Call today to begin.
Depression is a mood disorder, meaning it commonly causes a prolonged low mood lasting more than six weeks. A person with depression may feel disinterested in things they normally love, or they may have trouble performing in school or at work. Depression symptoms vary widely depending on an individual’s age, personality and other factors. Generally, the most common signs of depression include:
Most people with depression have trouble functioning in their daily lives due to the symptoms. You might feel unhappy without a clear reason or have trouble with relationships and completing everyday tasks. No matter what your symptoms look like, we offer the support you need to feel better.
The decision to pursue therapy is a personal one. Since depression can worsen if left untreated, it’s best to talk to a therapist sooner rather than later so you can begin your healing journey. A counselor offers professional support during your time of need. We can address the underlying causes of depression and other factors that may be worsening your symptoms. Trauma, bullying, abuse and major life events can trigger periods of depression. A therapist can work you through these challenges.
Therapy is recommended for everyone: even people without a mental health condition can benefit from our services. Our compassionate therapists offer the advice you need when you’re in a tough situation. Introspection is key to a better understanding of yourself. Through therapy, you can find ways forward to a happy, fulfilling life.
