Online help for depression
right here, for you
Some people describe depression as that dark storm cloud that hovers just behind them. Others say it’s like dark shaded sunglasses that turn the world dull colors. It can show up as constant tiredness, a heaviness in your chest, unexplained tears, or a desire to lay in bed because the pillows and sheets won’t judge you for being cradled by them. Sometimes, though, it’s harder to detect. Depression can also show up as forced smiles, polite declinations of grabbing drinks or spending time with loved ones, or messy home spaces. If you haven’t quite captured the message, it is this: depression is difficult.
We also want you to know this message:
you are not alone.
Depression impacts millions of people in the United States, and the way it shows up can be different for everyone. The way depression looks on each of us is as unique as each of our personalities, for every person is a unique constellation of identities and lived experiences. It can impact your confidence and motivation. The things that you once loved to do might feel more like a chore. The passion that was sparked in the past might feel muted and weak. Depression can also make us feel like your daily life is one bad thing after another. It can make it hard to find meaning your relationships, at work, at school, and other contexts where you hold space. You might find yourself wondering, “What’s the point?”
The importance of treatment
Treatment for depression can help alleviate symptoms in numerous ways. Therapy provides you with a space to openly express your thoughts without judgment. A good therapist will work collaboratively with you to generate and practice coping skills that you can use in your every day life. With therapy you will be able to challenge the depressed thoughts that come to mind, find more drive and motivation, and learn how to use different tips and tricks to keep you flexible throughout your day. You will feel more in control of your life while also gaining a deeper understanding about the unique parts that make you, you.
How we can help
At Cultured Space, our therapists have been helping people with depression through innovative and effective therapeutic services that target it at the psychological source. If you feel like you don’t enjoy the fun things that you once did, our therapists can meet with you virtually to help get you on your feet again to rediscover the zest of life. Our therapists keep this in mind and will work collaboratively with you to understand if what you’re experiencing is relative unhappiness or something we can treat using our specialized virtual therapy. At Cultured Space, you will have a safe, compassionate, empowering exploration of your story while they collaborate with you to treat your depression with culturally-informed methods. What’s different, though, is that we don’t just look at the symptoms; we look everything that matters to you.
