Depression And Anxiety

Serving out of Oklahoma City, providing Online Appointments throughout the state of Oklahoma

Many men and women in our culture may believe they live in a war zone with a dispirited and scrambled soul. Hopeless depression, alarming anxiety or mental disorder cloud the present and the future. They don’t know what to do to restore a confident, vigorous, healthy focus.

People tend to suffer higher rates of depression after giving birth and in late fall. Depression and anxiety often exacerbate each other and people with depression commonly have difficulty concentrating on tasks and conversations. Some people abuse alcohol and drugs or overeat as a way of coping, causing them to develop other medical problems. Depressed people are also at increased risk for self-harm.

Depression and anxiety is characterized by prolonged emotional symptoms including:

  • Apathy
  • Sadness
  • Feeling nervous, restless or tense.
  • Guilt and shame
  • Exhaustion
  • Irritability
  • Feelings of dread
  • Trouble thinking about anything other than the present worry

When mental health is in disrepair and collapse feels imminent, setting a new course seems impossible. The pleasures and certainty of existence seem lost. Using street drugs and alcohol promises to help. It’s a lie! Restoring our best self is like stripping away layers of paint from an old piece of wood. It takes a commitment to revision friendships and family, or perhaps a job, until deterioration is replaced with a narrative of renewal. Counseling can help.
