Individuals often come to Center of Life Counseling seeking depression relief and depression counseling services.

Together, we provide effective and evidence-based depression relief and depression treatment.

Many individuals experience minor symptoms of depression such as occasional feelings of sadness, loneliness, lack of motivation or disinterest in activities. However, when these symptoms become more intense, persistent or difficult to relieve, this indicates a more serious depressive disorder. Depression disorders require specialized depression therapy and treatment by a certified depression therapist.

Do I Suffer From Depression?

Some individuals seek depression support when they experience feeling down from time to time. Others with significant depression tend to experience symptoms that go beyond brief feelings of sadness. A depressive disorder is identified when feelings of sadness are consistent, continuous, and persistent or when depressive symptoms affect how one feels, thinks, and responds to daily activities.

No two individuals experience depression the same and severe depression can lead to an array of physical, behavioral, and emotional symptoms.

Depression disorder signs and symptoms occur daily or frequently for no identified reason with few periods of relief.

Signs & Symptoms of a Depression Disorder

Mild, moderate, or severe depression symptoms often include excessive feelings of sadness, loneliness, lack of motivation, disinterest, and hopelessness often relating to health, family, money, school, or work. Depression often occurs at the onset of:

  • Losing a loved one
  • Getting fired from a job
  • Handling a divorce

However, depression illness can often occur with no identifiable cause, even when life is seemingly stable. Many individuals have difficulty reaching out for depression support, leaving feelings of sadness and disinterest to continue with no relief.

Consequently, depression often disrupts social activities and interferes with work, school, family, friends, and intimate relationships.

In addition to excessive sadness, loneliness, or lack of motivation, symptoms of a depressive disorder also include:

  • Persistent sadness, anxiety, or “empty” feelings
  • Feelings of hopelessness or pessimism
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness
  • Irritability, restlessness, agitation
  • Sudden or unidentifiable loss of interest in activities or hobbies that were once pleasurable, including sex
  • Difficulty concentrating or remembering details
  • Indecision or difficulty making decisions
  • Insomnia or excessive sleeping
  • Overeating or appetite loss
  • Thoughts of death and dying
  • Bodily aches or pains including headaches, cramps, or digestive difficulties that are not alleviated by physical treatments
  • Unexplainable weight gain or loss
  • Excessive crying
  • Social isolation and/or withdrawal
