    Most of us experience feelings of depression at one point or another during our lives. Depression, at its core, is the sustained experience of deep sadness for long periods of time. I am here to help and offer south Orange County depression counseling to get you back to where you need to be.Experts disagree as to its exact cause, but genes, chemical imbalances in the brain, and general life stress are major contributing factors. All of us recognize severe depression. In these cases, the sufferer often can’t get out of bed in the morning or is unable to eat or hold down a job. But there are many levels of depression. With a milder form of depression, the sufferer may be functional, but may have lost interest in the activities that once brought pleasure and fulfillment or may not be sleeping well.

    Depression is different for men than it is for women. Women are more likely to recognize that they’re depressed, while men may have a more difficult time recognizing that the feelings they’re experiencing could be depression. As a result, men tend to act out more when they’re depressed, e.g., anger outbursts.

    Symptoms of clinical depression typically include feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, helplessness, pessimism, and guilt; fatigue and restlessness. Irritability; difficulty remembering things, making decisions, or concentrating; loss of interest in activities and hobbies; and overwhelming feelings of sadness and emptiness.

    Depression in any form is a major struggle and can prevent you from reaching your life goals or finding personal fulfillment. With depression counseling we can work on a solution together.
