Therapy for Depression
Feeling Depressed? We get it.
Depression is one of the most common reasons people go to therapy. Whether you are burned out from stress and overworking, stuck in a rut without meaning or purpose, or losing hope for the future, we are here for you.
Depression is a common and serious mental health condition that affects how you feel, think, and act. It can cause persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loss of interest in activities you used to enjoy. It can also interfere with your daily functioning, such as work, school, or relationships.
If you are struggling with depression, you are not alone. According to the World Health Organization, more than 264 million people of all ages suffer from depression worldwide. Depression can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, or background.
Here are the top five signs that you (or a loved one) are depressed:
- Feeling sad, empty, or hopeless for more than two weeks. This is the most common symptom of depression and can affect how a person feels, thinks, and behaves.
- Losing interest or pleasure in activities that used to be enjoyable. This is called anhedonia and can indicate a loss of motivation and zest for life.
- Having trouble sleeping or sleeping too much. Depression can affect a person’s sleep patterns and cause insomnia or hypersomnia. Both can affect a person’s energy level, mood, and concentration.
- Feeling worthless or excessively guilty. Depression can lower a person’s self-esteem and make them feel as if they have no value or purpose. They may also blame themselves for things that are not their fault or dwell on past mistakes.
- Having thoughts of death or suicide. Depression can make a person feel hopeless and as if there is no way out of their situation. They may think about ending their life or harming themselves. This is a serious sign that requires immediate attention and help.
However, depression is very treatable. Therapy is one of the most effective ways to cope with depression and improve your quality of life. Therapy can help you understand the causes and triggers of your depression, challenge unhealthy and unhelpful thoughts and beliefs, develop coping skills and strategies, and set realistic and achievable goals.

How Deep Eddy Helps Texans Overcome Depression
Depression is a condition that affects your vitality and well-being. Sometimes, depression can arise when you have difficulty expressing and processing emotions that scare you, such as anger. Instead of facing them, your mind may shut down and avoid them. However, this can also prevent you from feeling alive, joyful, and meaningful. We can help you access and process your emotions in a healthy way, so that you can embrace and nurture your true self, and heal from the past traumas that triggered your emotional defenses.
Medication can be a useful tool for treating depression, especially when it has a biological basis rather than a situational one. However, medication alone is not enough. Research shows that having supportive and positive relationships is crucial for recovery. Working with a therapist can provide you with a safe and stable relationship where you can explore the root causes of your depression and learn how to cope with them. You will also learn how to improve your other relationships and build or strengthen your support network.
We know that depression can make you feel hopeless and stuck, and that recovery can take time. But we also know that there is hope and healing at the end of the journey. Having someone to walk with you along the way can make a big difference. Let us help you find your way back to life!
