The symptoms of depression can be debilitating.

 

Depression's unrelenting sadness, hopelessness, and lethargy interfere with the simplest daily activities.  

We can help.

Depression (like Anxiety) is not usually the primary problem but rather a symptom of underlying unresolved issues.     

A major goal of depression counseling is to equip and encourage you to identify the underlying issues and help you deal with them on your own so you can flourish and thrive.

NSC Strategies for overcoming depression

  • Strategy 1 -  Behavioral Strategies  Since depression has a significant biological component, it is important to combat it with physical strategies. We help clients take small but significant steps toward a daily lifestyle that does not feed their depression.

  • Strategy 2 - Primary Problems  In the safety of our session, your counselor will help you identify the underlying factors contributing to your depression.  Once we know the underlying problems, we can develop practical strategies for addressing them. 

  • Strategy 3 - Cognitive Strategies  Research has demonstrated that replacing negative thoughts with positive ones is a highly effective method of combatting the symptoms of depression. Using CBT, Narrative Therapy, and other tools, clients will begin to think, feel, and live very differently.

  • Strategy 4 - Spiritual Strategies  Inner hope and joy are gifts of God. For clients who want this, we can help them receive these gifts directly from Him through historical spiritual disciplines.
