Depression is one of the most common afflictions of our modern lifestyle. Depression is more than just feeling down or pessimistic. Depression crosses the boundary between just feeling that things are difficult, or life is hard, to being a debilitating mental condition. Depression causes a major loss of enjoyment in many activities; people who suffer from depression can lose motivation so badly, that they can’t get out of bed or enjoy the pursuits that used to bring them pleasure.
When a person is depressed, life can seem meaningless and frequently a feeling of hopelessness sets in. Dark, moody thoughts can cloud a person’s mind–these helpless and hopeless thoughts are a common marker of a clinical depressive disorder. Depression is different than sadness; depressed people feel hopeless, lose interest in normal activities, and can come to question their self-esteem and self-worth. Left untreated, clinical depression can kill a person.
Each case is unique, and as a result can be difficult to treat for counselors who lack training and experience. If you believe you are experiencing depression, seem to have lost hope and feel that your life is being negatively impacted by such symptoms it’s time to reach out to a professional depression therapist for an evaluation.
Depression Therapy Online and throughout Connecticut
Our offices are located in lovely downtown Darien, Connecticut but we now offer convenient “online therapy” options, and thus can meet with clients in order to treat their depression wherever they live in Connecticut. If you are a resident of Darien or Stamford, Greenwich or Hartford, or anywhere else in the state of Connecticut, reach out to one of our Intake Coordinators today for a complimentary consultation.
The steps are as easy as one, two, three, four:
- Free Consultation–Our highly trained and caring Intake Specialists will guide you through the process of figuring out what may be wrong and who on our staff would be the best fit for your situation. And if we don’t have a professional to address your particular needs we will work with you to find someone outside of Darien Wellness free of charge.
- Client Liaisons–You will be assigned a personal Client Liaison to help with the registration process and insurance verification. They can even help you get set up for seeing your counselor over the Internet!
- Your Counselor–You will meet your counselor and undergo a through assessment to help identify the best treatment options for your particular situation. To ensure your safety, we are conducting depression counseling sessions online. As a result, you can be anywhere in Connecticut and take advantage of seeing a local, licensed depression therapist.
- Reviews and Progress. Your therapist will work with you to diagnose your challenges and then, over time, to identify treatment methodologies such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) or perhaps DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) as well as other treatment methodologies as deemed fit by your counselor.
Depression comes under many different names (sadness, feeling melancholy or blue) and is often coupled with anxiety. Some people oscillate between depression and anxiety; it’s often not clear, at first, what the diagnosis or optimal treatment may be. Don’t worry if you can’t fully identify what your issues are; one of our trained therapists will help you to identify the problem and then create a treatment strategy to get better.
