Depression is common and treatable.

An online therapist for depression can help. However many people wait years to access effective treatment for depression. Depression can begin in teens or adulthood and can last for several years if not treated. If you suspect you may have depression it is important to seek treatment as depression can get worse if left untreated. But do not lose heart, it is not too late to seek treatment. An online mental health therapist can help.

Many people experience depression or burnout without even realizing it.

If you are in a fast paced or stressful situation: demanding career, parenthood, life transition (e.g., retirement, divorce, loss of a loved one, change in career, recent move) you might be running on fumes and not even realize your mental health struggle. Depression can impact your relationships, work, how you see yourself and your parenting. It is not too late to reach out and feel like yourself again. We can work together to build a life you enjoy.

If you are feeling hopeless…that may be a symptom of the disease as a feeling of hopelessness is a common sign of depression. There is hope: depression is treatable. Some common signs of depression can include but are not limited to:

  • Low mood
  • Feeling of hopelessness or despair
  • Teariness or emotional numbness
  • Sleeping too little or too much
  • Low appetite or increased appetite (eating beyond hunger)
  • Feeling critical of yourself or others
  • Irritability
