You Shouldn't Have to Suffer In Silence. You Can Break Free and See the Light Within Yourself.
Feeling down and less motivated than usual can make it difficult to enjoy life. Your favorite food may not taste the same. The activities that used to bring you joy can now feel like a chore. Even the moments in the day that used to feel peaceful are now filled with doubt and worry. Your days seem to move slowly, yet you find yourself too exhausted to take part in the things you used to love doing. However, you feel stuck in this sudden bout of sadness and don’t know how to ask for help. Do you tell your friends and family? What if they don’t understand? These thoughts keep you from reaching out, and you find yourself feeling more and more alone.
Perhaps, you’re a parent who has noticed your child has become more withdrawn. They have stopped seeing their friends, seem to be struggling in school, and don’t appear to have any motivation. The activities that used to bring them joy? They just don’t seem to care anymore. Their moods can go from sad and withdrawn one moment to angry outbursts the next. What do you do? Or what can you say? You worry that your child is drowning in their emotions and you are not equipped to handle this situation.

We have worked with many children, teens, young adults, and adults who have struggled with depression. Our team understands that this can be a difficult and overwhelming time in life. Before beginning therapy, these individuals often felt stuck, unmotivated, isolated, and without hope. Yet when they began therapy at The Comfy Place, they were able to feel less stuck and more hopeful about their future. We want to do the same for you.
Our Team Wants to Help You Feel Better
We like to emphasize that depression may look different from person to person, and therefore, we will work with you to create a personalized plan for therapy. You may struggle with depression through bouts of sadness. Whereas someone else may struggle with high-functioning depression, where they are able to manage their daily life and appear to be doing ‘fine’, yet deep down feel empty and unfulfilled. Thus, our goal is to make sure you find a therapist that will truly get you and provide the support you need.
Our Approach to Depression Counseling
Therapy here at The Comfy Place isn’t a one-size-fits all endeavor. This is a place where you can come as you are and be greeted with warmth, understanding, and respect. Our goal is to empower you to find hope, joy, and freedom. Together, we will find the best ways for you or your child to cope with depression and gain greater insight into the underlying causes. Our therapists use modalities such as EMDR, CBT, and other occasional brain-body-based approaches. While CBT is more commonly used, the power of brain-body-based approaches like Brainspotting and Somatic Experiencing has been proven to be beneficial as well.
We will choose evidence-based treatment methods that align with your individual needs and goals. If that’s an evidence-based treatment- great! Feeling more of a mindfulness-based approach? We’ll provide that too! Your child needs time to be silly or play with play dough while they talk in therapy. We can do that. Our goal is to make sure your therapy experience is both effective and enjoyable. When you come to The Comfy Place, we want you to know that you will be in safe and capable hands. Our arms are open and we are here to help you get real, heal, and have fun.
