Depression Therapy in Chicago, Illinois
We all may experience depression at different points in our lives that vary in length and severity depending on multiple factors. Depression can be caused by biological, social, and psychological sources that cause us distress. When we’re in a depressed state, we may feel sad or apathetic, and notice a loss of interest in activities we once enjoyed or felt motivated to do. Individuals who experience depression may also notice changes in sleep patterns (sleeping more or less), loss of energy and concentration, reduced self-esteem, and in more severe cases, thoughts of suicidal ideation. At Roamers Therapy Chicago, we hope to help you identify factors that are triggering your depression, process the associated emotions and impacts, and provide methods for healing and coping in order to live a more joyful life.
Some examples of depression disorders are major depressive disorder, situational depression, seasonal affective disorder, bipolar disorder, persistent depressive disorder, perinatal depression, peripartum (postpartum) depression, and atypical depression.
The treatment options that can help are psychotherapy, medication, and support groups, as well as coping and problem-solving techniques to improve psychological or behavioral patterns and approaches.
At Roamers Therapy, we serve clients residing in Chicago who are experiencing depression by offering and conducting psychotherapy, educating on methods for coping with and overcoming depression, and referrals to support resources. In addition, we may also assess and make referrals for you to seek medication if we notice you would benefit from medication, if appropriate and deemed medically necessary.
We are proud and committed to take a culturally sensitive approach to help communities of color in Chicago such as Black, Indigenious, and People of Color (BIPOC) navigate how depression presents in their own unique way. We notice that there is a special approach to helping the BIPOC community navigate treatment for their experience with depression.
We encourage you to reach out and get acquainted with our therapists and book an initial appointment. We would be honored to share the journey and gift of therapy with you and help you manage depression symptoms.
