Counseling Services and Relationship Therapy


While many people go through times where they feel down or discouraged, they aren't necessarily depressed. However, adult depression can be present when a number of depression symptoms occur and persist. Depression can range from mild to severe, but should always be taken seriously. Depression symptoms may include:

  • Markedly less interest or pleasure in activities that you usually enjoy
  • Depressed mood most of the day
  • Significant weight loss or gain
  • Feelings of restlessness or agitated behavior
  • Fatigue and/or loss of energy
  • Difficulty completing chores or projects that you usually can finish
  • Recurrent thoughts of death and/or suicidal thoughts
  • Trouble concentrating on tasks at home or at work

Adult Depression

People can have a genetic predisposition to depression, but many of those with depression have no known family history of it. Other factors can trigger depression symptoms as well, such as ongoing stress, trauma, unresolved grief, major hormonal changes, difficult life transitions, and chronic pain.

In counseling, we discuss the issues in your life that may be contributing to your depression symptoms. Each person's situation is different, and I take that into account when exploring what has caused your depression and how best to treat it. Our goal is to help relieve your depression and enable you to live a more fulfilling, positive life.
