People dealing with depression struggle to regain motivation, confidence, and drive to experience life with purpose and happiness.
Depression is more than just sadness. It is a real illness causing relationship problems, family suffering, and lost work productivity. Most people feel they should be able to solve their own problems. They feel they should be able to “just do it,” but when dealing with depression, just doing even the little things in life like washing dishes or going to work can seem insurmountable. Or, if you are able to “just do it,” each moment feels hollow as if you are going through the motions- or worse, going nowhere, which can deepen depression. Stoically sticking it out or constantly talking about your problems will not make depression go away. No matter how tough a person you are, depression is a real illness that eventually becomes too much. The good news is that depression is highly treatable.
Williamsburg Counseling provides professional counseling for depression.
We can help end your depression. Treatment may involve medication prescribed by your doctor, but is not always necessary. Professional support is. According to the American Psychological Association, “the importance of getting appropriate help cannot be overemphasized.” Unlike advice from well meaning friends, well-written books, or well intended famous personalities, Amanda and Jane at Williamsburg Counseling provide a professionally trained and impartial perspective on your life to support you in real change. Research shows that the critical factor in successful therapy is the relationship between you and your counselor. At Williamsburg Counseling you will find counselors focused on you, listening to your perspective, and working to gain insight to your experience. Our counselors combine professional training and years of experience to help generate the best possible outcome. Contact us now to begin the end of your depression.
There is no need to live with depression. Treatment at Williamsburg Counseling can help you:
- Defeat exhaustion and regain energy
- Stop feeling helpless and take back your sense of power
- No longer feel overwhelmed and experience a sense of control and pleasure
- Engage and enjoy family and friends
- Stop thoughts of death or suicide and enjoy life
A 2010 study by the American Psychological Association found 1 in 9 Americans suffer from depression- an illness that is highly treatable.
Depression rates are higher than one in nine in women, those who have never been married, African Americans and Latinos. Men are probably under represented as they are less likely to report depression.
Williamsburg Counseling provides professional support to men, women, couples and familes suffering from depression. Amanda and Jane are also trained in multi-cultural counseling addressing the unique stressors and experiences of minorities in color, faith, and sexual orientation. We also understand that therapy can be talk biased and may be intimidating for men or women who are not comfortable sharing their feelings. We can help.
Therapy need not be a long drawn out process. Counseling can last six to eight sessions depending upon your goals, your ability and support in implementing change, and the nature of your depression.
Individuals and the ones they love are deeply affected by depression. Couples as well as families can benefit from counseling interventions. We can provide insight and clear strategies to help stop depression from destroying family or relationship functioning.
Taking the first step is often the most difficult. If you or someone you love is suffering from depression, don’t hesitate to contact Amanda or Jane.
