​​​​Depression is one of the most common mental

disorders in the United States and can

significantly impact a person’s daily life and

activities. In 2016, almost 11% of young adults

ages 18-25 had experienced depression as well

as 7% of adults ages 26-49. For all adults over

18, it is estimated that over 10.3 million adults

had experienced major depression that

significantly impaired their lives. For adolescents

ages 12-17, around 2.2 million or 9% of the

population ages 12-17 have experienced depression that has significantly impacted their daily lives. Of these adolescents, 60% did not received any treatment for their depression.

When you work with one of our specialists, you work together in identifying areas in your life that are contributing to depression and begin to take steps to overcoming its pull. Thoughts, behaviors, biological issues, nutrition, and relationships all have to be explored in order to reverse depression. Having a professional counselor who can act as an objective party that is there to support and guide you can be pivotal in changing the tides of depression.


  • Symptoms of depression can be changes in sleep, changes in appetite, lack of concentration, loss of energy, lack of interest in activities, hopelessness or guilty thoughts, physical aches and pains, and suicidal thoughts.
  • Trauma at an early age or significant changes in life circumstances can be major contributing factors to depression.
  • For adolescents, symptoms can look like anger or emotional outbursts, inability to complete simple tasks, a change in normal behavior, sleeping too much, not sleeping well, or avoiding sleep, or withdrawing from friends and activities.
