It’s a guarantee that sometime in your life you will go through difficult times, and you might not feel as happy as you normally do, as happy as you’d like to be. You might accept this as a normal reaction to disappointment or loss, but if those negative feelings linger and begin to get in the way of your life, it’s time to reach out to one of the caring professionals at Thriveworks Grand Rapids Depression Counseling.

Am I Depressed?
While this is a question best addressed with your therapist (avoid self-diagnosis — seek a professional assessment), there are a few key tell-tale signs that signal that you may be struggling with mood issues. Whether your lowered mood could very well be an indicator that you are depressed, there are various signs you can look for.
Symptoms of depression include:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Persistent feelings of guilt and/or sadness
- Uncharacteristic loss or increase in appetite
- Loss of interest in former passions
- Lowered sexual drive
- Inability to focus
- Inexplicable irritability
Why Should I Reach Out to Grand Rapids Depression Counseling?
When you contact us, you’re making a great first step in finding relief from your depression. Primarily because acknowledging that there might be a problem means that you’re more capable of addressing it — you can’t resolve an issue that you don’t believe you have. This is also a great step because you’re choosing to develop a therapeutic relationship with an experienced professional whose only goal is to give you the knowledge and clarity you need in order to invite lasting change into your life.
This change can begin as soon as tomorrow. Thriveworks Grand Rapids Depression Counseling believes that everyone can benefit from meeting with a caring counselor or coach, and that you should be able to access that benefit as soon as possible.
For that reason, we operate on a zero waiting list policy. When you need help, call us. A real person will answer the phone and find you an appointment this week, if not tomorrow. We accept most major insurance policies (so you don’t have to break your budget), and often have session availability on nights and weekends (so you don’t have to miss work or school).
These negative feelings, if not addressed, can lead you to dark places. Don’t succumb. You can fight this. You can thrive. We can help.
