Therapy for Depression

Therapy for Depression

Most days, getting out of bed feels impossible. You’d rather throw your covers over your head, shut your eyes, and pretend that the world around you doesn’t exist. Life itself feels too overwhelming, too exhausting, to face with passion or real effort. Your bed feels like the only safe place in the world.

If you decide to open your eyes, you see your world in shades of black, white, and gray. It feels impossible to focus on anything—work, books, television shows, conversations. You float through the hallways of your house or apartment, your clothes becoming part of your body. Sweat pants and old t-shirts, that’s all you can manage. When did you last shower? Brush your hair, your teeth? Does it matter? Does anything matter anymore? Do you matter anymore?

You can’t bring yourself to shop for groceries. Your milk expired last week, there’s one egg left in your carton, some wilting lettuce in your vegetable drawer. A half-eaten, still-open package of cookies is sitting on your dusty countertop. The empty ice cream carton from the night before haunts you from the top of your garbage.

You feel numb, empty, and isolated. Even in a crowded room, you lack connection. You feel your relationships slipping away from you. You can’t give the same energy to your partners, friends, family, or coworkers that you used to be able to. You’ve stopped answering the phone and turned down every invitation. When you do make contact with others, everyone seems either concerned or annoyed with how you’ve been acting. They’re asking you when you last showered, if you’ve stopped working out, whether or not you need to “see someone.”

You’re terrified that you’ll never return to your old self, like nothing will feel “worth it” ever again. You don’t enjoy anything. You have zero energy. You keep crying and you don’t know why. You want to be better, to feel better, but have no idea how. Depression has robbed you of yourself.

You deserve better.

Imagine how different life can be without the dark cloud of depression as your constant companion.

You can get out of bed with energy and excitement for what the day might hold. Hygiene and self-care no longer feel impossible. You are proud of yourself, of who you’ve worked so hard to become. You care about yourself, inside and out. You believe, to your core, that you matter.

You feel a new passion for life. Food has real taste, reading your favorite books is fulfilling, television shows and movies make you laugh. Choosing outfits isn’t tedious. Creativity and self-expression are fun and exciting.

You aren’t constantly cranky at work. You boss stops looking at you with that concerned, frustrated look in their eye. Your coworkers don’t avoid you. You can focus on what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. You feel productive and important.

You feel healthy—truly happy. You move your body more than you used to. You feel the strength in your muscles, your heart, and your mind. Your diet no longer consists of stale cookies and soda. You care about yourself and your body, because you know that you matter.

Your relationships flourish. You spend time with your friends, and social situations don’t feel exhausting or overwhelming like they used to. You don’t avoid conversations with your family. You don’t mind that they’re interested in your life, and you feel a new interest about them. You have a real desire to grow closer to the people in your life. You love them, and you make it a priority to show them that love. You realize that you, too, are a priority for them, and you begin to realize the potential that each of your relationships hold.

You feel like you. The real you. You can feel your soul, your spirit, feeling lighter than it has in a long while. You can see the world around you in full color. Life is more exciting than it’s ever been. You’re re-introduced to yourself, and you really like who you are.

We can help you get there.

At Clear Mind Therapy, we know your worth, and will meet you where you are. We will be there to hear you and to believe you. We will be there to validate you and your feelings, your struggle, your pain. Without judgement, we will hear and see you.

We know that life is hard—in fact, sometimes life really sucks.

You aren’t exaggerating. You aren’t being dramatic.

Even though your friends and family love you and want you to get better, sometimes their words aren’t very helpful. They may try to remind you of how much you have and how grateful you should be for what you do have. They might tell you to “get over it” or “snap out of it.”

Here, you’ll never be told to “get over it.” Instead, you’ll be given space to speak freely about what you’ve been feeling, how numb you’ve been, how confused you feel. You can cry, scream, stare off into space, and we’ll be there with you.

In counseling, when you are given the ability to speak and think and feel the way you truly want to, we can work together as a team to discover new possibility and perspectives. We can find ways to rediscover the essence of who you truly are.

With us, baby steps are celebrated. What feel like small accomplishments can be used as launching pads for even more growth, more discovery. Because you are capable of great growth, and we see that in you already, because you’re here, looking for help.

With us, you are never alone. This journey is yours, but we are here every step of the way.

You have worth. You deserve to be here. We know that feels hard to believe, but we promise that it’s true. And we are here to help you believe it.

If you’re ready to try, to truly try, then please don’t hesitate. Today is your day to rediscover yourself. Contact us today.
