Signs of Depression In Adults

Please note this list is NOT intended to diagnose or treat you. See a licensed mental health provider or medical professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Most people get "the blues" sometimes that last a day or two. However, Major Depressive Disorder is a SERIOUS and often FATAL illness that occurs in approximately 6.7 percent of US adults. Medications can be helpful, but come with side effects that many people cannot tolerate. Medications will NOT cure the mistaken belief system causing the depression.

Without talk therapy and hypnosis to both uncover the root cause of the depression and learn ways to manage it, depression can persist despite medication. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, can help you uncover the beliefs you carry about life without even knowing it. These beliefs often contribute to depression below your level of awareness. Once uncovered, I can help you face and refute the irrational thoughts and replace them with healthy, logical thoughts. Hypnosis allows the new belief systems to immediately begin to "click into place" without conscious effort or stress.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms on a frequent or daily basis, please contact me for a full professional evaluation:

  • sadness
  • pessimism
  • feeling like a failure
  • loss of pleasure
  • guilty feelings
  • punishment feelings
  • self-dislike
  • self-criticalness
  • suicidal thoughts or a sense of, It would be better if I weren't here *
  • crying, or unable to cry anymore
  • feeling agitated
  • no interest
  • hard to decide things
  • feeling worthless
  • no energy
  • sleep issues
