Tired of Feeling Depressed?

Depression is a complicated disorder that can lead to the loss of energy, motivation, and hope. Often environmental, emotional, and hereditary factors combine to produce depression. Modern living tends to be stressful and often these multiple stressors trigger the onset of a depressive episode. Research on effective treatments for depression consistently reveals that “talk therapy” is one of the most effective ways to treat depression. Of the various “talk therapies”, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has a well established track record for improving or eliminating depression. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy focuses on habits of thinking and behavior. By becoming more aware of errors in thinking and automatic negative thoughts, more accurate and positive thoughts can replace the damaging ones. Depending on the severity of depression, antidepressant medication can be used to stabilize the depression and provide a platform to benefit from “talk therapy”. Depression is very treatable. Seeking help is the first step to reclaiming your life and wellness.
