Today many people struggle with anxiety and depression as they cope with life's uncertainties. We are all trying to piece together a "new normal."

A relationship that once felt love, now feels painful and exhausting. Maybe you're finding yourself full of anxiety or feelings of depression, and it all seems to lead back to this one person. . .

Relationships of any kind can cause pain and confusion. It's hard to know what went wrong or why cycles of toxic relationships keep happening. People are drawn to loved ones for caring support. When these relationships become hurtful, it is common to feel isolated, trapped in your own home, and desperately needing clarity and peaceful stability. While the pain is real, there is great joy in taking steps towards healthier relationships. You deserve all the trust, encouragement, and companionship that positive people can bring to your life.

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 Lake Zurich. 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.
