Treatment for Depression in North Carolina
Life is full of highs and lows. Everyone has rough days and everyone experiences sadness from time to time. However, if the sadness is sticking alone for far longer than you anticipated, it may be a sign that you are experiencing more than sadness. If the following questions resonate with you, it may be time to seek treatment for depression.
Do you feel heavy with despair, struggling each day to keep your head above the darkness?
Does it take every ounce of energy just to get through the day?
Are you feeling overwhelmed by feelings of helplessness and hopelessness?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, don’t worry- you are not alone. Here at my online therapy practice, I understand the struggles that come with suffering from depression. Further, I am dedicated to helping you with treatment for depression.
What does depression look like?
Depression can look different for everyone. Some people’s symptoms can be more obvious than others. However, there are some common signs you can look for…
- Little to no interest in doing things that used to be fun
- Feelings of hopelessness
- Trouble sleeping (falling asleep, staying asleep, or sleeping too much)
- Constantly feeling drained and having little energy
- Change in appetite (eating much more or much less, not otherwise explained)
- Difficulty focusing
- Caring less and less about stuff that used to matter
- Becoming restless and needing to fidget
- Thoughts of self-harm or wishing you weren’t here
If any of this sounds familiar, I want to remind you that you are not alone and that I am here to help. Depression is a common battle that many people face. Depression research shows that in a year’s time, nearly 7% of Americans have suffered from at least one depressive episode.
Symptoms of depression can look different for everyone and are brought on by a variety of things. Whether a past relationship is weighing on you, major life transitions have been hard to adjust to, or your anxiety is increasing your depression, there is a solution. Treatment for depression can touch on all of these challenges and more.
How can treatment for depression help?
My approach to depression treatment is to help you establish a sense of safety and security with me. I want to make sure you feel safe enough to be vulnerable and show me your true self. Further, I will work with you to develop coping techniques and self-care habits that will help you whenever you feel the depression getting bad again. Over time, we will work to uncover your past and what is really weighing down on you. More specifically, this helps us work together to sort through your thoughts and work together to overcome them. Afterward, you will be able to move forward in a positive, healthy way.
Brainspotting for Depression
I specialize in using Brainspotting in my treatment for depression. This type of therapy helps you to process those looming thoughts and begin to break free from the darkness that depression can bring. Brainspotting treatment taps into the body’s natural ability to heal in order to reduce and eliminate the effects of unresolved trauma, negative beliefs, and emotional distress.
