At first you thought it was just a series of bad days but now your depression is constant. In your memory you are an adventurous, fun loving, lighthearted woman. But lately you feel farther and farther from that sense of yourself.
When it’s hard to get out of bed in the morning reaching your goals and feeling joyful seems impossible. All of your self care (yoga, eating better, hiking…) doesn’t seem to make a dent in the sadness and sluggishness. And it’s so confusing when your mood spikes with anger, irritability or tearfulness when you least expect it.
Most of the time, others see how well you are doing at work, with your kids and your amazing partner. But they don’t see how hard it is for you to make simple decisions, how fleeting those joyful moments are or how your success at work leaves you feeling flat once you’ve come home.
I work with driven, ambitious women whose lives are complicated by depression. Together we work to build your self esteem because you don’t want to depend on others for happiness. We’ll explore your boundaries so that it feels easier to connect with loved ones. You’ll learn how to take better care of yourself so that the depression no longer has it’s hold on you. You are not your depression.
