Depression Counseling for Couples
Are one or both of you feeling hopeless, isolated and not your usual self?
Has one of you been worried about the other because of recent changes you are seeing in them, and you don’t know how to help them?
Do these thoughts often enter your mind?
- I am worthless and can’t do anything about it.
- I feel guilty for just wanting to eat, sleep and be alone.
- I hate who I am these days.
- I can’t stop crying, which makes me want to stay away from others.
- I feel gut-wrenching pain, but no one understands.
- My life and the world around me are dark. I hate it, but I can’t change it.
If you or your partner have experienced any variation of these thoughts and don’t feel like your usual self, chances are you may be suffering from depression.
Depression is a terrible experience for the depressed person, and it can have profound affects on a relationship.
Depressed partners often are barely able to adequately care for themselves, much less show up for their partner. This can leave the other partner feeling lonely, helpless, and maybe even unloved.
Many of my clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that there are many options available to once again have hope for their lives.
I understand the social stigmas that come with label of being depressed, and thus aim to help clients sort out their environmental, biological and circumstantial factors while offering support and care through a very dark time in their lives.
If you are hoping to finally lighten this load and feel like yourself again, I would be honored to help you.
