Depression

Depression is one of the most common mental health challenges amongst women that can impact nearly every aspect of our lives. Psychotherapy for Women understands that women face a unique set of challenges throughout their lives that can cause them to feel depressed in some way.

  • Difficulty engaging in activities and interests you’ve previously enjoyed.
  • Changes in sleeping habits, including sleeping more or less than usual.
  • An increase or decrease in eating habits/hunger.
  • Trouble concentrating.
  • Feeling bad about yourself in some way.
  • Thoughts that you are no good or are failing at something.
  • Thinking you would be better off gone/deceased.
  • Thoughts of wanting to harm yourself in some way.
  • Using substances, high-risk behavior, and/or self-harm in an effort to feel better/relief.
