You’re tired of feeling hopeless. Nothing interests you these days. There’s no point in getting out of bed. Most of the time, you feel “stuck” in life.
You’re feeling down most of the day. In fact, almost every day. Things that you normally enjoy, don’t seem to interest you anymore. Honestly, life is starting to feel like a pointless chore. Getting out of bed in the morning is extremely difficult. Even so, it’s as if every fiber of your being seems to want to just stay there and sleep. If this sounds familiar, you might be suffering from depression. Or, if these feelings seem to come every winter for no reason, you might be experiencing Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
Symptoms of Depression
Everyone’s experience of depression is different. But, most people experience some of the following symptoms of depression:
- Feeling emotionally down most days of the week
- Not finding pleasure in activities you used to enjoy
- Significant weight loss or weight gain due to appetite changes
- Thoughts slowing down
- Fatigue or low energy
- Persistent feelings of worthlessness, guilt, or shame
- Difficulty concentrating
- Thoughts of death or suicide

The Equipoise Approach To Depression Treatment
Our caring therapists use several different therapeutic approaches for depression treatment. Our foundation is in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy or “CBT” for short. CBT involves teaching you how to analyze the two major factors that influence your mood: your thought patterns and your behaviors. Ultimately, CBT empowers you to resolve your depression through specific techniques and interventions.
