Coping with Depression

Anyone can experience depression but learning new life skills can help you move through difficult life situations in a healthy way. Depression is frequently a result of one or more life issues that you are currently not handling as well as you would like.

Let me help you move forward and overcome that feeling of impossible gloom. Are you experiencing:

  • Feelings of anxiety, panic, sadness, irritability, helplessness, fatigue, loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping, difficulty concentrating or focusing
  • Re-experiencing upsetting memories
  • Avoidance of thoughts, feelings conversations and events that remind one of the traumatic events
  • Feeling distant from others
  • Feeling jumpy
  • Loss of appetite
  • Substance misuse
  • Learning to trust and be trustworthy
  • Creating change

I will guide you as you move through the difficult symptoms of depression. We’ll identify the thoughts and actions that lead to feelings of anxiety, sadness and fear and work to change the way you’ve learned to think and lead you back to the life you want.
