You’ve been depressed and haven’t been feeling like yourself lately.

Every where you look, people seem happy. You wonder why you’ve been feeling so depressed lately. Things haven’t been going the way you expected them to. Although the past couple of weeks and months have been hard, you thought the feelings of sadness would go away eventually.

But they haven’t yet. Your friends and family have started to notice, and you don’t know what to say. You try to explain, but find that you don’t quite know how. Even though there are people all around you, they don’t seem to understand. You feel alone.

Every day, you silently wonder if something is wrong with you. Is there something about life that others are seeing that you aren’t? Things you used to enjoy don’t seem to hold the same excitement for you anymore. You feel unmotivated to do anything and find yourself sleeping all the time. You walk around in a fog, going through the motions and wonder if this is all there is to life.

Many of us go through times in life like this. It can help to speak with someone experienced in helping others get through this. We’re here to let you know you’re not alone.

We are here to help with depression, stress, life transitions

Life is hard and it can be even more difficult when you are going through a time of stress, life transitions, changes, and disappointments. Here at Hope+Wellness, you will feel safe and supported to talk about how you’ve really been feeling.

Using research supported treatments for depression including CBT, we will help you learn how to identify negative patterns of thinking, feeling, and living that leave you feeling stuck and depressed. We will help you move toward a greater sense of peace and purpose.

You will begin to feel a sense of compassion and kindness toward yourself, and gain a better understanding of how to transform suffering into strength and resilience.

Ultimately, you will begin to feel connected to yourself again, except this time, stronger and wiser.

Freedom from your depression, stress, anxiety, and pain

We specialize in working with children, teens, and adults experiencing depression, stress, anxiety, and life adjustment. At Hope+Wellness, people come to us for a genuine connection and healing, and to learn healthy and balanced ways of thinking and living to help them feel a sense of greater peace and purpose.

Potential benefits of therapy

Therapy involves significant time and commitment. There are no guarantees in therapy, but potential benefits of working with us to get help and support for depression include the following:

  • Relief from depression, stress, and low mood.

  • Learning to love yourself and to feel more comfortable in your own skin.

  • Connecting more deeply with others, as you learn to reach out to your friends and family for support so that you have others by your side as you navigate this difficult time.

  • Feeling good about your life, internally where it really matters — not just externally as it appears to others.

  • A feeling of ease and purpose to make peace with the present to move forward.

  • Greater resilience to handle the natural ups and downs of life.

  • Clarity and hope in the face of what feels hopeless.

  • A deeper understanding of pain and what it can teach you. You will process stress and life challenges as a way to learn lessons and grow more fully into the person you are meant to be.

What the depression therapy process looks like

We work with kids, teens, young adults, and adults going through a time of depression.

We are passionate about offering treatments based in research that are designed and found to be effective. Treatment approaches we specialize in include cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and acceptance based therapies, relaxation training, and stress management.

It is important that you find the therapist that you resonate with. Therefore, we invite you to learn more about us, read our blog, and to read about getting started and frequently asked questions. When you are ready, you can reach out to us to ask a question or to schedule an initial consultation appointment.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
