Depression


The deeper sadness carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. –Kahlil Gibran

Sadness is present in everyone's life to some extent, but when it is accompanied by feeling hopeless, worthless, or numb, it's time to get help. Whether you are simply going through a rough time or are in the throes of severe depression, therapy can help to identify and change underlying patterns of thought and behavior that are contributing to these feelings and can provide strategies to decrease the pain and restore a sense of joy, peace and competence. See the
About Therapy page for a deeper look at this process.
