A Closer Look at Depression

Depression is a psychological condition that is characterized by the following symptoms:

  • Persistent feelings of sadness, loneliness and hopelessness
  • A lack of enthusiasm or interest in activities once found pleasurable
  • Feelings of worthlessness and hopelessness
  • Concentration and focus can no longer be maintained
  • You suffer from insomnia and hypersomnia
  • You increase weight, binge eat, or gain weight owing to poor diet changes
  • You experience heightened anxiety daily
  • You experience suicidal thoughts and attempts of self-harm

If you are experiencing at least 2-3 of these symptoms on a daily or frequent basis and it has lasted longer than 2 weeks, you could be affected by depression. It is important to seek depression counseling and to receive professional assistance to help you in every way possible.

Depression is a disease that can quickly take over your life. It can negatively affect your work performance or your ability to maintain healthy social and intimate relationships. An inability to engage in positive attitudes and a healthy lifestyle means a poorer quality of life. Second guessing your value can negatively impact your confidence and ability to make healthy, meaningful decisions.

Depression Counseling

Different types of depression are managed according the extent and nature of symptoms experienced. Major depression is a persistent psychological condition while depressive disorder includes symptoms that last for 2 years or more.

Cognitive behavioral, psychotherapy and various talk therapies are often introduced in the management of depression. Treatment depends on an evaluation of symptoms and may include counseling or a combination of counseling and medication.

A professional therapist is sought to provide counseling therapy. Counseling is an important step that a patient suffering from depression can take, to live an improved quality of life. The process of counseling explores the thoughts and behaviors of a client. Solution focused therapy introduces ways of improving individual lifestyles through technique and the introduction of skill building tools.

Individualized therapy is invaluable for patients who have suffered from the limitations of depression or depressive episodes. The assistance and guidance provided by a certified therapist helps each person work through symptoms and the impact it has on their emotional, cognitive and behavioral well-being.

You won’t be disappointed

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Jaquita for family/couples counseling and she was wonderful! She gave us homework assignments to complete, and we also had some very innovative in session assignments. A straight shooter, but very respectful. She’s just awesome!

Professional and Innovative

I just want to give a review of Ms. Jaquita Shorts. My husband and I met with her for several months between May and September for family/marriage counseling. Ms. Shorts gave us homework assignments and in session assignments that made counseling more comfortable. She was also great at drilling down on issues to discover root issues. I definitely suggest giving her a try!

I needed someone to talk to and Keira was a great listener! She was patient and very kind. She didn't rush me I felt very comfortable with her. Very calming environment, clean and smelled great! I have told family members, and they will be going to her next. When I left her office I felt such relief and peace in my heart. I would recommend her to anyone that needs a kind, and open counselor.
