Depression is a potentially serious mental health condition that causes persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loss of interest in activities you once loved. While common in adults, depression can be debilitating without the right treatment.
At Journey2Wellness, LLC, Latrice tailors depression treatment to each patient, ensuring you never receive one-size-fits-all care. Her goal is to uncover the root of your depression to improve your mood, behavior, and quality of life.
Depression symptoms may seem subtle at first but can interfere with your daily activities when left untreated. Common signs and symptoms of depression include:
Over time, untreated depression can impact your ability to perform effectively at work or school. You may also feel disconnected within your interpersonal relationships.
Although there’s no single cause of depression, brain chemistry, hormonal imbalances, and inherited traits can contribute to its development. Some individuals are more at risk of developing depression than others. Common risk factors for depression include:
Depression commonly runs in families. If you have a close relative with a history of depression, you’re more likely to develop the disorder at some point in your life.
The earlier you address the symptoms of depression, the more likely you are to avoid recurrences. Depression is a lifelong disorder in many individuals, but the right coping strategies can help you manage your symptoms, improve your self-esteem, and enhance your quality of life.
At Journey2Wellness, LLC, Latrice offers comprehensive depression treatment through a combination of mental health counseling and medication management.
The most common form of counseling for depression is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT aims to identify unhelpful thought patterns and behaviors and replace them with more constructive ones.
Medication can effectively reduce many of the symptoms of depression, such as extreme sadness, anxiety, or irritability. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most common types of medication to treat depression. After a comprehensive evaluation, Latrice can help find the right medication for you.
