Depression Counseling in Fort Myers, Florida and Online

Depression is the most common mental health concern in America. Frequently, clients come to see us with depression symptoms, however, they are unaware that they are depressed. Often these individuals have carried this monster around for months or even years without seeking help. It is such a relief for our clients to finally talk to someone who can relate to this awful feeling.

In depression therapy, you will immediately identify tools that will help to lessen these un-welcomed symptoms. At times, medication is an option depending on the client’s desire to combine medication and therapy together, which is the best recommended treatment. Although, We have had clients that have felt better without medication, utilizing techniques such as cognitive Behavioral Therapy (changing thoughts and perspective) and mindfulness; along with identifying other possible triggers such as, lack of exercise, sleep patterns, diet, and relationship dynamics.

One client described depression like this “It’s like a field with many dark and muddy pits in it.” “You never know when you’re going to fall in a pit and you never know when you’ll get out of the one you have fallen in.” (identity withheld due to confidentiality practices).
