Austin Depression Therapy
What is it Depression?
Have you or someone you know experienced feelings of hopelessness or despair? Perhaps you have had difficulty working, sleep issues, weight fluctuations, or are no longer enjoying the things you used to. All of these things can be signs of depression.
When depressive symptoms last more than two weeks, and when they interfere in daily life, it is likely a major depressive episode. 6.7% of Americans experience a depressive episode in a given year, and the lifetime risk of having a depressive episode is 17%. It can be difficult to know what to do when this is happening to you, but help is available.
How can depression therapy help?
Depression comes in many forms, and affects people in different ways. You are not alone. At Austin Family Counseling, we can help you walk through this difficult time in your life. Our depression therapists offer compassionate, non-judgmental counseling in a warm, safe environment. Our therapists can help you to find healthy ways to cope with depression, as well as identify triggers for depression. We will help you to process any issues that might be contributing to the depression and collaboratively find ways for you to overcome this disorder.
If you are in crisis, please call 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255 or go to the nearest emergency room.
