If you’re feeling depressed and have been for a few weeks, it’s OK to seek the help you need.
- Do you struggle to get out of bed in the morning?
- Have you been avoiding your loved ones, and don’t know why?
- Have you been missing work or other planned events repeatedly?
- Do you have trouble sleeping because of running thoughts and worries?
- Do you struggle with substance abuse?
If you said yes to any of these questions, you could be suffering from depression. Talking with loved ones can help, but they might give you advice to “fix” your problem or try to make you feel better by telling you it’s no big deal. They mean well, but when you are struggling with depression, it’s best to work with a therapist that specializes in depression. They are trained to help you heal underlying issues.
At Memor Health, we understand the difference between sadness and depression
But if these symptoms affect your quality of life to the point where every day seems like a struggle, you might be experiencing depression.
Depression and sadness do intertwine, but just chalking your experience up to “feeling sad” oversimplifies clinical depression. All humans feel intensely at times as we ride the ups and downs of life’s journey. But clinical depression alters your life significantly. It’s like being in a constant funk that you’re unable to pull yourself out of for days, weeks, months, or maybe even years. And these feelings can affect your ability to live your everyday life in a healthy way because of the negativity pervading the perceptions about yourself and your life.
If you have been experiencing depression, hopelessness, or helplessness for more than two weeks, we suggest seeking help from a professional therapist specialized in depression. If you have more severe symptoms, such as suicidal thoughts, consult a medical professional right away.
Finding the right treatment for your depression
We know it can be overwhelming to obtain professional help from a mental health expert if you don’t know where to begin.
Finding a depression therapist or depression treatment center, making an appointment, getting there, and then talking to someone about your issues can take more energy than you currently have. Which is why at Memor Health, we want to help you find the most effective avenue to support your mental health and find the best therapist that specializes in depression for you.
Depression symptoms might indicate deeper issues. At first you might blame your feelings on problems with someone at work or with your spouse, but this might just be what is bubbling to the surface. A depression therapist will help you excavate deeper healing needs.
We live in stressful times, constantly busy and plugged in. Even if you can make it through the workday, you might just be counting down the minutes until you can go home to watch TV and numb out. If your outward expression doesn’t match your internal emotional temperature, you might benefit from working with a licensed therapist specialized in depression who can offer a variety of treatments for depression.

What to expect during treatment for depression
If you’ve thought that therapy would never work for you, we want you to see that professional therapeutic support can be a guide on your path to optimal mental health.
Although a depression therapist won’t solve your problems, they can help you see your life and issues from a different perspective and teach you coping strategies. When depressed, people can feel a lot of negativity towards themselves, often plagued by shame and judgement.
Our therapists will help you shift your thoughts and behaviors to create new life experiences. They are certified in various modalities and at our depression treatment center, services may be offered such as CBT, EMDR, DBT, mindfulness, or humanistic therapy. If your personal healing journey requires it, our trained professionals can also combine medications and supplements to help you find what’s best for your personalized healing plan.
As a holistic health care center, we also advocate for a healthy lifestyle including a good diet, exercise, sleep, and friend and family support systems.
At Memor Health, we pride ourselves on creating an environment prioritizing the safety of our patients, families, and our employees. We know getting help for mental health is important, especially in these unprecedented times, and our treatment center does everything to mitigate risks associated with COVID-19. CDC updates are consistently put into effect including proper infection prevention procedures with staff maintaining proper distance at all times.
At Memor Health, we see your mental health as a garden. For it to bloom, you need to take care of the soil, plants, water, and weeds. Just like with watering a garden, you’ll need to keep taking care of the parts that you want to heal and bloom. We want to help your garden become overflowing with the beauty and abundance you want to see in your life as we support you to achieve optimal mental health.
