There are times in life when we may end up in a low mood. Grief, loss, life transitions and other events can bring on unexpected sadness and other feelings. But if your sadness persists beyond what’s generally expected, you may be dealing with depression, a common and treatable mood disorder. Depression can lead to complex emotions that you just can’t handle on your own. If you are struggling, know that Counseling Works is here to support you. By visiting our depression therapist, Naperville patients can gain insight into their mental health condition and build healthy coping mechanisms.
At Counseling Works, we are committed to providing dependable therapy services to help individuals proceed to a healthier, more fulfilling lifestyle. Mental wellbeing is an essential part of achieving better self-esteem and improved relationships, so if you are struggling, don’t hesitate to reach out to a professional. Depression is one of the most common reasons people come to our office, and we deliver effective treatments to help you learn to cope with your emotions in a productive way while developing a better understanding of yourself.
If you have the symptoms of depression but aren’t sure if you have a mental health disorder, we can help you determine the next steps. There are several key signs of symptoms to watch out for, including:
Certain events, such as losing a loved one, can trigger depression. If these symptoms persist for more than six weeks without a clear cause, it could be due to an underlying disorder. Of course, everyone has a unique experience with depression and therefore symptoms may present differently depending on the individual. It may help to keep a mood journal to record your emotions, what triggers them and how often they occur.
Depression can bring about countless challenges in your daily life. You may lack the motivation to complete personal and professional responsibilities, or be so overwhelmed by your emotions that you have trouble functioning. Fortunately, therapy has been shown to be highly effective for mood disorders. We begin with an intake appointment to determine that your symptoms do indeed indicate depression. Then, we will assign you one of our therapists who specializes in depression counseling. During each session, you’ll discuss the challenges you are facing and receive advice on how to handle them. As an active participant in therapy, you can learn to manage your depression and work towards an improved quality of life. We are here for you every step of the way.
If you believe you may have depression, know that you don’t have to go through it alone. Counseling Works offers compassionate guidance in a private space where you can work towards the happiness that you deserve. To speak to a trained depression therapist, Naperville residents can contact our office.
