Learn How Therapy Can Help

An intense and persistent form of depression that affects your daily life. It’s different from the “blues,” which is a brief feeling of sadness. Major depression can last for weeks or months and may cause physical symptoms such as changes in appetite, weight gain or loss, sleep problems, fatigue, and difficulty concentrating.

A mental health condition characterized by extreme mood swings, such as highs and lows. Bipolar disorder is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to handle daily life. Bipolar disorder is a condition that brings extreme changes in moods, which can be severe enough to cause significant problems with relationships and work or school.

A type of depression that lasts for more than two years. It’s not uncommon for people with PDD to experience depressive episodes that last for months or years at a time. People with persistent depressive disorder may have milder symptoms than those who have major depression or bipolar disorder. They may also be less likely to seek treatment, which can make the condition harder to diagnose.

A type of depression that occurs during the winter months. The symptoms of SAD are similar to those of depression, but they occur during the winter months and tend to improve in the spring and summer. Seasonal affective disorder is most common in people with a family history of major depressive disorder or bipolar disorder.

Its so incredibly important to have a good counselor to talk with. A good counselor will connect with you and talk you through lifes problems and situations as they arise. A good counselor will also help you process and understand things from a healthy perspective. Its so helpful to have a professional insight and not just biased personal opinions like what family and friends sometimes offer. Its so important to process our thoughts in a healthy way, talking things out and putting all the peices together so we can have a clear picture, a goal and more targeted communication which helps all our relationships.
