Living Life Counseling can help you understand the causes of male depression and provide treatment options to help you live life to the full.

  • Are you losing your sense of joy?
  • Are you lonely, detached and reclusive?
  • Are you working more and having less fun?
  • Are you drinking too much alcohol or abusing drugs?
  • Are you finding it increasingly difficult to discuss your problems with friends or family?
  • If so, perhaps you are suffering from male depression. Depression can range from mild to moderate to severe feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, as well as, causing you to have trouble sleeping, overeating, and drinking excessively.

    Male depression is considered a dangerous medical condition. However, we have seen a number of men not seek the help they need, thinking that they can overcome depression on their own. Unfortunately, fighting depression can be a losing battle and lead to a down hill spiral of despair.

    How We Can Help You

    We have observed over the years the number of individuals with depression increasing at alarming rates. According to the Mayo Clinic, depression affects about 6 million American men and 12 million American women each year. Those that struggle with depression may not receive the understanding and support from family and friends that is so desperately needed. This support is essential given that depression is the leading cause of disability. So many people with depression go untreated which is tragic given 80 - 90 percent report feeling better after just a few weeks of treatment.

    Depression can be caused by a number of factors such as unresolved family of origin issues, current situations, and /or chemical imbalances. Based on research, depression-anxiety caused by a chemical imbalance is most effectively treated with medication and therapy. We work closely with a psychiatrist in situations where medication is appropriate.

    Living Life Counseling can help you learn to reduce your symptoms of depression by:

  • Reducing feelings of sadness and hopelessness
  • Regaining your ability to have interests and fun
  • Looking forward to each day and finding excitement
  • Overcoming feelings of worthlessness
  • Becoming more optimistic and positive
  • Analyzing and dealing with past regrets and feelings of guilt
  • Increasing your motivation and concentration
  • Reconnecting with friends and family
  • No one is happy all the time, but God intended for us to experience peace and joy in our lives. With help of a caring, Living Life counselor and leaning on your faith, depression-anxiety can be overcome.
