Psychotherapy for Depression
Are you feeling hopeless, isolated and not your usual self? During the current pandemic, with the need to self-isolate for safety reasons, feelings of depression may have escalated. We gay and lesbian people are particularly susceptible to depressive episodes due to having grown up homosexual in a world hostile to our nature.
Do you experience any of these thoughts or feelings?
- I am worthless and can’t do anything about it.
- I feel guilty for just wanting to eat, sleep and be alone.
- I hate who I am these days.
- I can’t stop crying, which makes me want to stay away from others.
- I feel gut-wrenching pain, but no one understands.
- My life and the world around me are dark. I hate it, but I can’t change it.
If you experience any of these thoughts or feelings, or any variation on them, you may be experiencing depression.
I want you to know that you are not alone and there are people who can help. Many of my clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that there are many options available to once again have hope for their lives.
I understand the social stigmas that come with the label of depression, and thus aim to help clients sort out their environmental, biological and circumstantial factors while offering support and care through what may be a very dark time in their lives.
