Depression is one of the most common mental health issue in America, with over 15 million Americans suffering from the effects each year. While we’re all familiar with the image of depression as an issue that saps your energy and keeps you in bed, it can also be an isolating problem that forces you to withdraw from friends, family, work and hobbies in a way that leaves you feeling as if you are absolutely alone with no light at the end of a tunnel. Worst of all, depression can take a very long time to become an obvious problem; many times, depression builds so slowly that you and your loved ones might not even realize you have it until you are deeply depressed.
At Couples Thrive Therapy in Fort Lauderdale, we can help you learn how to deal with your depression through therapy. If you are depressed for a very specific reason, like the death of a friend or a family member, we can help lead you back to the light by processing the loss. If you are suffering from depression for reasons that aren’t as obvious as a loss, we can help with that, too. By tracing things backwards, we can find what caused it and then work on addressing it. For some people, depression is based on brain chemistry instead of exterior causes, and we can help with that by helping you find ways to naturally boost chemicals in your brain and body that will help fight depression, as well as teaching you strategies that will allow you to find the bright side.
