Life is full of challenges and losses. However, depression is more than just the experience of life's ups and downs. You deserve to get the support of a professional who can help you understand your depression and move into a more joyful life. You may be depressed if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
little or no joy or pleasure in life - trouble with concentration - feelings of hopelessness - low self-esteem or self-loathing - trouble sleeping - exhaustion - eating too little or too much - difficulty performing at work - difficulty with physical intimacy - lack of direction or disinterest in goals - loneliness - emptiness - tearfulness and crying - self-harm - thoughts about suicide
The good news is that depression is treatable. Although we know at times it feels hopeless or impossible, there are many powerful and effective treatments to help you move past your depression and into a happier life.

What causes depression?
We often hear that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. While this can be true, we also know that depression is a complex experience that can have many contributing factors including, but not limited to:
Chemical imbalance in the brain - genetics - difficulty regulating moods - trauma - stressful life events - family history - low self-esteem - drug or alcohol use - abuse and neglect - perfectionism - serious medical illness - oppression - life changes due to COVID-19 - financial stress
Your depression could stem from one or many of the factors mentioned above. Luckily, these factors don't have to lead to a lifetime of suffering. Call us today to set up a free consultation and find out if depression therapy with Grit Therapy is a good fit for you.
