It’s not uncommon to feel a certain sense of sadness or a lack of fulfilment at different points in our life. Feeling depressed doesn’t necessarily mean you are suffering from mental illness, but when your sadness becomes more than just a case of the blues, potentially interfering with our relationships, work and family life, day-to-day activities and self-care, it’s time to take a closer look.
At Old Towne Counseling Services we recognize there are times when life can seem like a real burden. Many of us experience major life transitions, like divorce, the loss of a job, death of a spouse, or even the birth of a child, as a problem that seems to have no solution. When we feel like we have no options, we can easily end up feeling not only helpless, but hopeless, too.
Our therapists are here to help you reframe your experience, and discover options you may have missed. Our work together can bring back the sense of hope you’ve lost, empowering you to find a path back to the happy, healthy life you deserve to lead by:
- Understanding obstacles to your overall well-being
- Developing insight about how experiences, relationships, and self-esteem impact mood
Developing coping strategies
- Creating a support system to help in times of both overwhelm and crisis
Whether your depression is situational or ongoing, the experienced counselors at Old Towne Counseling Services can support you in meeting and managing the challenges you are facing, bringing your life and experience back into balance.
