Depression is treatable! Therapists at Insight Counseling and Wellness are educated to assist individuals in finding the joy in their life again. Together, you and your therapist will first investigate the reasons behind the depression, such as your own family history and genetics, your internal voice, and conflict in your relationships, socially isolating yourself, your own self-esteem, and any life events, including trauma, a breakup or divorce, grief, and loss. Together, you and your therapist will outline goals to begin working through your depression.

Where we can help you with depression
Depression is complicated and there are a range of variables to consider, like family history and genetics, relationships, conflicts and life events (like: a separation or divorce, grief, LGBQT association, quarter-life or mid-life crisis) and character (self-esteem, perfectionism, and self-criticism) to name just a handful.
Research shows that counseling works to reduce symptoms, shorten the melancholy training course, and lower the rate of relapse later on. Our therapists will assist you through any period of your life and help determine what’s causing and contributing to your depression.
