Therapy for Depression

Depression can have you feeling stuck, empty, alone, tired, and more. It can cause you to withdraw from others, have negative thoughts, and zero motivation to do anything or even get out of bed. Therapy will be a supportive space where we will work together to identify the root cause of what’s keeping you down and practice tools for change.
