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.

Thriveworks Counseling McDonough

My therapist is the best

★★★★★
I have had several therapist over the last few year, from preachers to other centers, marital to individual counseling. I have never met a person like Deeveria (Dee) Lacy that takes her time to listen, but most importantly, hold me accountable and challenges my thought process. She is patient, always engaged and takes a genuine interest in what I have to say. She is down to earth and transparent with her feelings. This makes it so easy to express myself and not feel judged in the process. In addition, she also counsels my child and I hear nothing but great things when she comes out of her session. She is a therapy genius for all ages and stages. I'm blessed to be a client!

Best decision I’ve made in a while

★★★★★
This is my very first time talking to a licensed therapist and I must say I’m impressed. DeEveria Lacy and I were destined to crossed paths. She is helping my husband and I's marriage in ways we couldn’t even imagine. I wasn’t optimistic about the idea of talking to someone about our marital problems, however doing so has been completely life changing for my husband and I. It isn’t easy hearing the truth at times nor is it easy changing your usual thought process and typical reactions but it's necessary. DeEveria Lacy Has given me so many different analogies and scenarios so I can relate and understand better. She is giving us the necessary tools needed to navigate through our lives and marriage when obstacles arises. Thank YOU DeEveria Lacy!

Helpful

★★★★★
I was apprehensive at first, as I was having strong physical anxiety symptoms that I wanted to disappear fast. But Sandra taught me to make care of my mind and self care first to have lasting results. I have skills that I still use when I am feeling stressed or overwhelmed. She helped me become a better me.

Dee at Thriveworks

★★★★★
In going to therapy I thought it was going to always be somber, sad, and I was going to always feel like the Bad guy I have enjoyed my sessions with Dee because she finds the good in every situation explained. She makes me feel as if I’ve known her for years. She makes me accountable to counter active behavior. She’s opened my eyes to different ways of thinking about emotional intelligence and accountability. The work isn’t done. But thanks for putting me on the right path.

Myngnon Walton / Play Therapy

★★★★★
I’ve been taking my son to play therapy with Miss Mimi for a little over a year and I’ve noticed a tremendous difference in him being able to express his feelings and emotions after their sessions. She is observant, personable/relatable, genuine, and knowledgeable. My son will specifically ask to visit her if there is a large lapse in time from his last therapy session. I’d definitely recommend Miss Myngnon Walton.

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!
