Lately you’ve been feeling like a sloth.
You have been in the rabbit hole. It was lonely. Crawling out was difficult because the sadness you felt like it was weighing you down. Or, it felt like you were walking around with a light fog around you that was not noticeable by others.
There might have been times when it was difficult to work through this sadness and pain. Sometimes it was tough because it felt like you were walking in quick sand; slowly being pulled down and having to try so hard to lift your feet to keep going. Other times, the sadness or hopelessness wrapped you in a cocoon, barricading you from the things and people you used to enjoy.
Or maybe you did go about your days and get things done, but it felt like you were just going through the motions. It might have been confusing because there are times when you did smile, laugh, or accomplish tasks. This might have made you, or others, question the validity of your sadness and pain.
I’m here to help.
Depression exists along a continuum. For some, the depression doesn’t prevent them from being functional, but the sadness is like a stain that has left residue that makes them feel bad about themselves. For others, the depression is intense and not only affects how they feel about themselves, but also, makes major areas of life difficult. Therapy can help with both ends of the continuum and each point in-between.
Through therapy with me, we process your experience with depression, explore realistic strategies that are helpful, and problem solve difficulties that are unique to your experience, while moving forward in a way that is authentic to you and your values so that you can have a fulfilling life.
