Therapy For Depression And Grief

single pink flower close upHaving trouble getting motivated or interested in things? Feeling sad and low or weeping at the drop of a hat? Are you wanting to retreat and avoid people? Are you prone to only seeing the negative .. the glass always feeling half empty? Are you so low and despairing that you have contemplated taking your own life? Can you not seem to get over the loss of a loved one? Or maybe you are sad and dragging about but don’t really know what’s wrong. It is likely then that you are suffering from depression and/or grief.

We all get blue on occasion, especially if we are experiencing loss, illness, or great disappointment. Problems occur when these feelings are seeming too intense to bear, or they do not pass in a timely manner. Or perhaps you just feel low but are not even fully convinced or aware of the cause or causes.

When we cannot get relief on our own or with family or close friends, it is probably time to talk to someone with experience and knowledge of this misery. Our work will be to give you a place to openly express your feelings and experiences and look at your life sincerely to see what is causing this distress and why it is so intense or stuck. Sharing our experiences and their origins gives us a roadmap toward change and emancipation. Come sit with me, Dr. Lynn Winsten, while we engage in this journey together.

The advantage to seeing a therapist for these problems has been proven time and again. And the more experience a therapist may have, the more likely they can help you quickly get to the root of your distress. Psychotherapy can give you a place to share your feelings and experiences so they can be processed and alleviate your suffering.
