Counseling For Depression

How Depression Counseling Helps

Depression can feel very confusing. You might ask, “Why am I depressed?” And never get answers. This is common. Depression is difficult because sometimes it is situational, something happened; or the past 10+ years has been difficult. Motivation to get out of bed is affected. You feel as if you have no purpose. Where is God? Is He real? Does He love me? We can help you break down depression, uncovering roots, so that it does not have to feel random or hopeless. We offer Christian counseling in Fort Worth for individuals, marriages, and families where one struggles with depression.

Marriage Counseling for depression may look at your expectations in marriage, learning to be a helper and one who can be helped, and engaging in encouragement.

Family Counseling for depression may engage your family dynamic of speaking and listening (or not speaking and listening) about struggles and issues.
