Stepping out of the Darkness

Managing Depression is Possible

Depression can be immobilizing. It can start slowly and progress rapidly. It impacts every area of your life like a blanket of heaviness and darkness. Sleep, Appetite, Exercise, Career, Relationships, and self-care can all be affected by depression. The feeling that the depression is here to stay and may not go away is terrifying for many. Imagining your life before the depression can be difficult to envision.

The good news is that Depression doesn’t have to stay with you forever. The therapists at Ally Psych have helped hundreds of clients experiencing depression feel better and get back to enjoying their life.
