Online Depression Therapy

Online Depression Counseling in California | Online Depression Treatment in California

Is depression clouding your days?

You might feel depleted, empty, and utterly sad—like you are a walking shadow of your old self.

Shame, helplessness, and negative emotions may overwhelm you so much that you start to think you are unworthy of love or a burden to others.

Getting out of bed, brushing your teeth, or completing day-to-day tasks may take a monumental effort. And the things you used to be excited about don’t really interest you anymore.

You want to get better. You’ve tried coping, but nothing seems to bring lasting relief. So you feel stuck and guilty because you can’t “shake it off” or move on. And the cycle continues.

Reclaim your self-worth, hope, and motivation.

What is depression?

Depression is a common mood disorder defined by profound sorrow, diminished self-worth, and lack of hope and motivation.

While feeling down or going through painful chapters is part of human nature, depression goes beyond that. It’s a severe and persistent condition that hinders your emotional, mental, and physical functioning, your capacity to attend school or perform a job, and how you relate to yourself and others.

Depression can happen spontaneously, or it may come along with other biological and environmental circumstances.

Common risk factors of depression include:

  • Family or personal history of depression and/or other psychological problems
  • Health conditions or medical illnesses (e.g., cancer, diabetes, heart disease)
  • Imbalances in hormones or brain chemistry
  • Loss or trauma
  • Major life transitions or stressful situations
  • Medication side effects
  • Relationship problems
  • Seasonal changes

What is online therapy for depression?

Online depression therapy or depression counseling involves meeting with a mental health specialist to learn about yourself and your symptoms, weather bouts of depression, and promote a sense of meaning and self-love—all within a private virtual space.

It’s not about “curing” or “wiping out” depression but about attaining healthy alternatives to address it and embark on a happier life.

Do you need therapy for depression?

Sometimes, depression might be confused with apathy, laziness, or low productivity. But in reality, these symptoms are extremely draining and difficult to control without treatment.

Signs of depression include:

  • Changes in appetite or eating patterns
  • Despair and emptiness
  • Difficulty concentrating or remembering things
  • Disinterest or loss of pleasure in activities, places, or people you used to cherish
  • Guilt and shame
  • Isolating from others or becoming detache
  • Lack of energy and motivation
  • Low self-worth and hope
  • Moodiness, anger, or irritability
  • Negative or self-harming thoughts and behaviors
  • Pain without a clear cause
  • Sleep problems

If you or someone you care about is exhibiting any of these signs of depression, please know you don’t have to endure this on your own.

Therapy provides valuable insight, support, and skills to address these symptoms.

How can online therapy help with depression?

Exploring yourself

You might have been carrying this turmoil for a while now, feeling unheard, misunderstood, and alone. How can anyone understand what’s happening to you if you can’t make sense of it?

Online therapy invites you to delve into your symptoms, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in a judgment-free environment. You’ll tune into yourself and spot any patterns, connections, or catalysts to your depression. We’ll notice how these elements might affect your mental health and discuss how to embrace or shift them (e.g., accepting what you can’t control, challenging limiting beliefs, and breaking negative habits).

Rebuilding your connection with your inner self and others

One of the most devastating parts of depression is the disconnect you might experience from your authentic light and your loved ones. You might lose sight of your identity, deviate from your purpose, and withdraw from others.

As we work together, you’ll increase your awareness and start reconnecting with yourself, the people, and the things you love. This process will encourage you to rediscover your value, drive, and hopes for the future and set clear goals to aspire to.

Learning skills to ride the tides

Many people living with depression try to ignore it, avoid it, or numb themselves to stop feeling anything altogether. Yet, sometimes those efforts create a vicious cycle and end up hurting even more.

Therapy will equip you with effective coping skills to prevent or relieve symptoms of depression while fostering compassion and trust in yourself. We’ll also help you prepare a toolbox adapted to your unique needs, full of practices to nurture your well-being and maintain progress in and out of therapy (e.g., mindfulness, meditation, identification and reframing of cognitive distortions).

Online depression therapy is an accessible and secure route to receive counseling whenever and wherever you are. If leaving home to see a therapist seems like another daunting task, working with an online therapist might benefit you.
