What are the Signs of Depression?
Depression looks different to each of its victims. However, most individuals with depression feel hopeless, isolated, and not like their usual selves. You may also feel depressed if you sometimes think the following thoughts:
- I am worthless and can’t do anything about it.
- I feel guilty for just wanting to eat, sleep and be alone.
- I hate who I am these days.
- I can’t stop crying, which makes me want to stay away from others.
- I feel gut-wrenching pain, but no one understands.
- My life and the world around me are dark. I hate it, but I can’t change it.

What Are the Signs of Depression?
Depression can manifest in different ways, often affecting your quality of life both physically and emotionally. The most common signs of depression that we see in our patients are:
A feeling of general helplessness is a warning sign of depression. This may come off in conversations as asking “what’s the point?” or a lack of action.
Loss of Interest
Apathy is common in people who suffer from depression, as they feel too emotionally drained to care about their surroundings.
Agitation or Irritability
These symptoms are more common in men but can be seen in women as well. These symptoms can also develop into misplaced and sudden anger, escapism, or substance abuse if left untreated.
No matter how much sleep you are getting, lack of energy and chronic fatigue can be pervasive as it feels twice as hard to accomplish everyday things, leading to insomnia and anxiety if left untreated.
Constant worry, doubt, or panic can affect your overall quality of life if left untreated. Other symptoms of anxiety can include heart palpations, fatigue, sweating, and racing heart rate.

When to Seek a Therapist
Depression and anxiety can leave you feeling exhausted. You may have tried different ways of coping with the symptoms by yourself, or perhaps you’ve tried therapy before and didn’t find a good therapist for your needs.
You may try to laugh it off and pretend your troubles are unimportant, but the longer these ailments go untreated, your mental health suffers.
Only by giving these mental health troubles recognition as serious, yet treatable, ailments can we make progress in helping you achieve your best self.
A dedicated therapist can help you work through these issues and create a tailored treatment plan for your unique needs.
The right counselor will listen thoughtfully and help coach you through difficult times, helping you understand your feelings better and guide you to an overall healthier place of healing.
These changes will not happen overnight, but they will happen. Seeking therapy will help you start healing faster, with better results.
What Therapy is Best for Anxiety and Stress?
We often find that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is most effective for anxiety and stress. This treatment plan is typically short-term and focuses on giving you the mental and emotional tools you need to improve your symptoms.
This treatment may be combined with another treatment to best tailor it to your needs, however, as we believe that not every treatment is a one-size-fits-all solution.
With successful treatment, you will find yourself gradually returning to activities you previously avoided, gaining the ability to be more present in everyday activities, with elevated energy levels and no more nagging thoughts.
What Form of Therapy is Most Effective for Major Depression?
Effective treatment options can vary based on how your depression developed, as every case is unique. These treatment plans are often short-term for less severe cases but can extend into long-term as you develop the emotional and mental tools to cope with and alleviate your symptoms in a healthy way.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, or Psychodynamic Therapy are all common treatment plans for depression; however, we believe that you deserve more than a standard treatment plan. With Eclectic Psychotherapy Group, your therapist is there to custom tailor your treatment plan to your needs and symptoms.
