    Therapy for Depression Online or In-Person in Parkesburg and Marietta, PA

    Have you been “in a slump” for a prolonged period of time? Are you feeling hopeless, isolated, and not your usual self, or perhaps feeling nothing at all? 

    Do these types of thoughts often enter your mind: 

    • 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. 
    • Why am I so indifferent these days? 

    If you have had any variation of these thoughts and don’t feel like your usual self, chances are you may be suffering from depression. This is a common mental health condition characterized by a persistent low mood that impacts the way you feel, think, and act. The bad news is that there is no simple, fast-acting cure, but there are people who can help.

    What Is Therapy for Depression? 

    Therapy is the first step in treating most mental health conditions, including depression. However, the process doesn’t always look the same. At Eagles Counseling, we have therapists with specialized training in several psychotherapy techniques, including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, and even music therapy. Our team will work with you to discover the modality that works best for you and your needs. 

    During your first session, your therapist may ask intake questions about you, your family, your symptoms and behavior patterns, past experiences, and health history. From there, they will form an assessment and plot a course for your depression treatment. They may implement some goals for you, such as exploring what triggers your depressive episodes, identifying flawed ways of thinking, developing better self-awareness, and learning how to reframe negative thoughts into more positive ones. When done right, therapy for depression can get you out of your slump and have you enjoying life once more.
