Depression Treatment in Wake Forest, NC, Fuquay Varina, NC, and Raleigh, NC
Have you found yourself losing interest in ordinary day-to-day life? Feeling run down and disengaged, like your heart isn’t in what you’re doing and you’re running on autopilot? Do you feel more tired than usual, even when you are getting enough sleep? Or perhaps your child or teen is displaying major mood changes, changes in relationships, or withdrawing from day-to-day life.
Everyone struggles with these feelings at times. Seasons of transition can be especially hard so if you’ve recently moved, changed jobs, or gone through any other major transition, you might be struggling in these ways.
But if you find yourself or your child answering “yes” to those questions for an extended time, it could be a sign of depression. Left untreated, the problem can often get worse. You or your child might become unusually irritable, perhaps crying multiple times throughout the day. If this sounds familiar, it may be time to get professional help.
Do you not sleep well or sleep too much because you lack interest in other activities?
Do you feel down, sad, or stressed most days?
Do you lack motivation or energy to get through your day?
Have your eating habits changed, such that you’re eating too much or too little?
Do you find yourself not enjoying things that you usually love?
If you’re tired of being tired and are ready to thrive, not just survive, then you’re ready to talk to a therapist. Here is how we can help. We will teach you to:
Identify negative thought patterns and stop them
Learn new positive thought patterns to improve your mood
Increase your energy
Get better sleep
Re-engage emotionally with your work and relationships
How We Treat Depression
Our team at Family Foundations Therapy uses evidence-based treatments such as:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT)
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprogramming,
if trauma is at the root of your depression (EMDR)
Narrative Exposure Therapy
Grief Therapy, if grief is the underlying cause of your depression
When you begin treatment, your therapist will start by simply getting to know you. They will ask about your history and then work with you to define treatment goals. From there, your counselor will create a plan of treatment so that both of you know what to expect moving forward. Sometimes you may also have daily practices your counselor gives you as homework, which will help you get the most out of your treatment. But ultimately our therapists care about your individual health and wellness, so they will work with you to create a plan. Your goals are our goals. Our sessions will simply give you a space to discuss your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as well as the things you wish to change.
The next step to take to address your struggles with depression is to schedule a preliminary appointment with one of our therapists. We have offices in Wake Forest, Fuquay Varina, and Raleigh with therapists who are ready to support and assist you as you find your way out of the fog. We want to help you thrive, not just survive.
