Depression Treatment

Call (303) 221-1272 for your free 15-minute phone consultation.

Are you experiencing overwhelming sadness? Do you consistently feel negative or hopeless about the future? Are you no longer motivated to participate in the activities that used to bring you pleasure? Are you having trouble sleeping, or are you very lethargic and sleeping too much? Is it difficult to concentrate? Do you have thoughts of suicide? You may even feel sad but cannot find a reason to justify that sadness. These may be signs of depression; and, while you may feel alone, millions of people have struggled with depression at times. Although depression is not uncommon, seeking outside help may be necessary to begin the healing.

How can I feel better?

person seeking depression treatmentYou have already taken the first step by exploring this website. At Greenwood Counseling Center specialize in depression treatment. We have helped hundreds of people to recover from these feelings and regain the happiness they once knew. Reaching out to seek help is the first step toward eliminating the loneliness that can accompany depression. Depression treatment can help you rediscover value and interest in your life and identify the source of your sadness. Talking with a qualified therapist can help you learn how to recognize the role relationships and experiences may play in your feelings, and identify unhealthy behaviors that contribute to the depression itself.

I’m just not sure…

I’m worried that seeking depression treatment makes me look weak

Reaching out for help is a sign of strength. The feelings that accompany depression can be very confusing and overwhelming. The support that comes from counseling helps to bring clarity and hope to eliminate feelings of isolation and loneliness. It is wonderful to advocate for yourself. Many people say that they often feel some degree of immediate relief just by beginning the process of counseling and they take pride in having sought the treatment they needed. Taking that first step helped them to feel there was someone there assisting them on their journey to healing and providing hope to them for a brighter future.

I have felt this way as long as I can remember and wouldn’t even know where to begin.

Sometimes experiences we have early in our lives impact the way we feel and react to situations much later in life. We may not even remember those experiences, nor do we necessarily need to. Our approach to depression treatment often incorporates therapy such as EMDR to facilitate more adaptive responses to outside cues that can trigger sadness, loneliness and feelings of hopelessness. This form of therapy can be remarkable at helping our clients to notice a significant change in feelings that have seemed pervasive and long standing.

But what is EMDR?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a therapy used to help clients resolve traumatic memories in a way that is often more effective than traditional talk therapy. For more information on this therapy, please visit our page, About EMDR.


Can’t I just take a supplement? Do I really need counseling?

While prescriptions and supplements can sometimes help manage depression, they alone are not a permanent solution to the problem. Supplements may help with the biological and physical side effects of depression, but mental aspects of the problem may still exist. Depression treatment helps to impact a more fundamental change in these feelings
