Therapy for Depression in NYC

Overview of Depression Therapy

Depression: An Overview

Depression is a common but debilitating condition.  It impacts how a person feels (emotionally and physically), thinks, and approaches daily activities.  It can seem all consuming.  It’s also treatable – if you are suffering from depression, know that there’s hope for healing, connection, joy and fulfillment in your life. 

Symptoms associated with depression interfere with day-to-day functioning and cause significant distress.   Common indicators include low energy; feelings of hopelessness, helplessness or anger; isolation, irritability; changes in appetite or weight; loss of interest in activities that formerly brought pleasure; and sleep disturbances. Statistically speaking, depression is more common in women than in men.

How do I know when to seek help for depression?​

Everyone feels sad, helpless, regretful, or despair sometimes – it’s part of being human. When these feelings become persistent, pervasive and difficult to cope with, however, this is a sign of depression.  It may feel like you’ve tried everything – talking to friends, reading self-help books, doing meditation and relaxation exercises – but you’re still stuck in a cloud of overwhelming sadness.  When depression disrupts how you used to feel, act and relate, you may need support to work through and with your struggles.

Despite how challenging depression is, many people still function at a high level: performing at work, taking care of their families, and engaging socially.  In NYC, it can even feel like “the norm” and something to grit your teeth and get through.  However, under the surface, feelings of sadness, guilt, worthlessness and despair abound.
