Depression & Anxiety
Are You Struggling with Depression or Anxiety?
Do you feel sad most days and struggle to get motivated to keep up with the tasks of daily living? Depression and anxiety can occur independently or together. Both are very common. They typically have an emotional, physical, and mental impact. It is common to experience emotions such as sadness, hopelessness, and irritability. The symptoms can include fatigue, restlessness, low focus, or difficulty making decisions. You may also notice a change in eating patterns, low motivation for daily tasks, and trouble with sleeping. These are just a few symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Signs of Depression
There are many factors that can lead to the symptoms of depression. Depression can take over and make ordinary tasks of daily living challenging and impossible for some. Many people suffering with depression experience fatigue, sadness, and a loss of purpose or pleasure in activities where they once found joy. If this is you, we can help. You are not alone. We understand the intricacies of being “blah” or blue most days. We recognize that many people isolate and struggle with physical symptoms such as sleeplessness or sleeping too much, changes in eating, and lack of focus or difficulty making decisions. It has been estimated that 1 in 10 people in the U.S. currently have depression and there are many that have symptoms of depression that have not received help. We can help!
Dealing with Anxiety
Anxiety is similar to depression in that it can take over and become immobilizing. We all know what it is like to feel nervous, anxious, or uptight with events such as public speaking, going to an interview, being presented with a performance evaluation, etc. However, when symptoms of anxiety become uncontrollable and long standing, it prevents us from accomplishing desired tasks and impedes experiencing the joy, peace, and calm we long for in our lives. Symptoms of anxiety include: excessive or chronic worrying, restlessness, being easily fatigued, irritability, fearfulness, sleep disturbances, and panic. We understand how challenging this is. We are here to help.
