Depression Therapy-Counselor-
Watertown, CT

Sure sadness is part of life, but do you feel your sadness has turned into suffering? Does it impact your daily life?

Maybe it is hard for you to get up in there morning and go to school or work. Perhaps you don’t enjoy the things you used. Maybe everything takes just a little more effort and you don’t know why.

You find yourself exhausted from feeling this way and maybe even think about hurting yourself. Above all, you’re frustrated because maybe you’ve been to therapy before: You feel like you know what you need to do to feel better and healthier yet you feel powerless to be able to get there. You are not alone. This is depression.

Common Signs of Depression:

  • Loss of motivation
  • Loss of interests
  • Suicidal Thoughts
  • Self Harm
  • Irritability
  • Anger
  • Sense of helplessness/hopelessness
  • Change in sleep pattern

Depression isn’t something you can “just snap out of.” Depression takes a toll. However, help is available and it works!!

How Can Depression Therapy in Watertown, CT Help You?

Depression often has a way of distorting thinking and changing your world into a dark and unbearable place. Many true and painful experiences fuel this thinking. We might start by simply exploring the thoughts that encourage depressive thinking and learning ways to slowly shift those beliefs. You will learn coping skills to use in the moment to help you manage crisis and feel in control. In addition, you will learn long-term skills to help you manage emotional overwhelm so you can live a life you love!

At Mindful Healing we use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the gold standard for treating depression and anxiety with high success rates! CBT combined with Mindfulness and Integrative Wellness helps you identify thinking traps, shift out of negative thought patterns, and learn to align your mind/body connection.
