DepressionChicago Human Potential has worked optimally with people suffering from depression. Using a variety of effective techniques, work in therapy explores the thoughts, behaviors and emotions that reinforces depressive symptoms in one's daily life. We believe that everyone is made to function with happiness, clarity and joy. The journey of self-discovery is often best taken with a trained therapist if past experiences have separated you from these feelings.
It is helpful to work with a therapist if depression has reinforced some negative beliefs about what has been going on in your life. You should see a professional therapist if:
- You have lost interest in activities that were previously fun for you
- You have found yourself isolating from friends and family
- You feel generally hopeless and wonder what your purpose is
- There have been significant changes in your sleeping or eating habits
