Depression & Mood Disorders

Are you feeling hopeless, isolated and not your usual self?

Do these 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.
  • I no longer enjoy some of the things I used to like.

If you have had any variation of these thoughts and don’t feel like your usual self, you may be struggling with depression.  Depression can occur for apparently no reason at all, or it can come after a significant life event (such as a trauma or postpartum depression).

We want you to know that you are not alone and there are people who can help. Many of our clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that there are many options available for treatment. 

We understand the social stigmas that come with label of being depressed, and thus aim to help clients sort out their environmental, biological and circumstantial factors while offering support and care through a very dark time in their lives. One of the values closest to our heart here at the Philadelphia Center for Psychotherapy is destigmatizing mental health, and helping people realize the legitimacy and seriousness of mental health issues. 

If you are hoping to finally lighten this load and feel like yourself again, contact us today for a free consultation to find out how we can help you.
