With a little help, we can move through this and get to a brighter life. In the 20 years I have been a therapist I have helped many people with these issues.

We are living in a time of uncertainty and fear. Feelings of anxiety and depression are significantly increased in people across the board. For some, symptoms from past traumatic events are being triggered. Other people are having increased conflict with their partner or they are struggling with the sudden transition into a full-time parenting/home schooling role. Many people who lived with more minor mental and emotional struggles are finding it harder to get through each day.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Venice. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
