Depression feels different for everyone, but many people experience feeling hopelessness, low self-worth, chronic pain or fatigue, lack of motivation & focus, difficulty keeping up with school or work, loss of pleasure in things that once brought joy, sleep & appetite disturbances and withdrawal from friends and family. In children and teens, depression can sometimes look like anger outbursts & irritability, difficulty concentrating, trouble getting along with peers, general moodiness, sleeping too much or too little, eating a lot more or a lot less than usual, and resistance to previously enjoyable activities. 

 

how can therapy help with depression?

Therapy can be an effective way to manage depression and the impact it has on relationships, sense of self-worth, and quality of life. At GT Therapy Group, we know that you are more than a diagnosis. We work with you to find new ways to cope with depression, developing tools of self-compassion, mindfulness, and emotion regulation to experience greater self-worth, feel more empowered, strengthen your relationships and to build a stronger internal and external support system. It takes a lot of courage to reach out and ask for help. You don't have to walk this path alone.
