Depression is like looking at life through hazy glasses. The haze created by depression affects everything; your relationships, your career, and your activities. It used to be that you enjoyed your life; it was vibrant, in color, but now, it’s just dull. If this sounds familiar, it may be time to contact the caring team of therapists at Talking Circles Therapy & Wellness to discuss depression counseling in Albuquerque, NM. Our knowledgeable team of professionals are here for you, and we can help you find more satisfaction, motivation, and fulfillment.
Is it Depression or am I Just Sad?
We all feel sad at times. Loss of loved ones, ending relationships, stress at work, and any number of other situations can leave us feeling sad, hopeless, listless, and just generally down. However, these feelings shouldn’t be constant, last weeks or months, or seem out of proportion compared with the situation. When your feelings of depression are long lasting, seem to happen without an obvious cause, or your daily life is negatively impacted, it may be time to consider talking to someone.
If you’re like most people who visit us for depression counseling, you’ve tried talking to family and friends, you’ve told your doctor, and everyone has suggestions to help you feel better. However, these suggestions have become more items on a checklist that you never get to complete because you just don’t have the energy. You worry that this is how it is going to be forever, and you may even think, “Maybe this is just who I am now.”
Yet, you find yourself here, looking to see if just maybe someone will truly understand and know how to help. We don’t believe that you are your depression. The truth is, this state is not who you are. Through evidenced-based tools and interventions, along with the extensive training and experience of our therapists, a different life is possible. We know change is achievable and work with our clients every day from this belief in a better, healthier, more satisfying life. Depression is not forever.
When to Consider Counseling for Depression
Do you find yourself depleted of energy or feeling hopeless and sad more often than not? Maybe you find yourself often thinking the following:
- “I have zero energy. I just want to stay in bed”
- “I am worthless and can’t do anything right”
- “One minute I am fine, then the next I have no control over my emotions”
- “I can’t concentrate or focus”
- “Everyone would be better off if I wasn’t here”
If you relate to any of these thoughts, please consider reaching out to one of our clinicians to discuss depression counseling in our Albuquerque practice.
