Depression Therapy in Lakewood, Colorado + Beyond

About You

First things first, let’s take a deep breath.

You have arrived and help is on the way. 

I know that when you’re hurting (and it feels like it will never go away), your natural instinct is to make it stop.

You want things to be different. 

You’re just so tired of these dark days…always hoping that tomorrow will be better. It never is. You don’t like yourself…at least not like this. Nothing seems to excite you. You can’t concentrate and your sense of purpose is…well, non-existent at this point. And the worst part is that you can’t talk to anyone because you’re tired of being a burden on your friends and family. What are they are going to do anyway? You hate this, but no matter how hard you try, you just can’t pull yourself up. The heaviness is always there. 

Let’s Make It Better.

Why is depression so hard?

If you’re struggling with depression, it can feel like the emptiness has taken over your life and you no longer have control over how you feel. To make matters worse, there’s so many misconceptions out there about depression that can make you feel even more alone and misunderstood. 

We live in a society that has stigmatized mental illness and made people who suffer from it feel as if they’re weak or defective.

What people often fail to realize is that
depression is just as real as a physical ailment, and no one chooses to be depressed.

But even for those who understand that depression isn’t something you choose, it’s still difficult to explain. 

Everyone feels down and sad every now and then. When you’re depressed, however, those emotions are more intense and more frequent. Depression can feel like a dark hole, blending one day with the next. It can be difficult to go through life feeling hopeless, helpless, or worthless on a regular basis. But whether you’re clinically depressed or just experiencing depression at times, there are strategies that can help.

Depression Treatment can help lift the weight of depression off your shoulders and help you begin to live a full life again.

Wake up your Inner Wisdom

How Therapy Can Help With Depression

Therapy can be very helpful for people with depression. It provides a caring listener, insightful feedback, and practical advice for making positive changes in your life. Unlike medication, which only treats the symptoms, therapy addresses the underlying causes of depression, helping to prevent it from returning.

We turn your struggles into strengths, teaching you to understand and appreciate your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. This helps you gain self-awareness and develop the skills you need for lasting recovery and personal growth.

1. Comfort + Support

We’re here to talk to you when you feel down and out. We get it, when you have depression it’s like being stuck in a gray world. A place that seems lonely, cold, and dark. Sometimes you just want to someone to listen and be with you. We prioritize creating a safe and nurturing environment where you feel comfortable expressing yourself without fear of judgment. Our approach is rooted in patience, active listening, and unconditional support. We understand that taking the first step towards seeking help for depression can be daunting, so we offer reassurance and encouragement every step of the way.

3. Pattern Identification

We’re skilled at helping you see what you can’t see on your own. Whether you have a loud inner critic, unprocessed trauma or distorted thoughts that are clouding your judgment, we help you connect the dots and form new ways of being. Through insightful exploration and reflection, we help you recognize and challenge negative thought patterns, unprocessed trauma, or self-limiting beliefs that may be impacting your well-being. By shedding light on these patterns, we empower you to make meaningful changes and cultivate healthier ways of thinking and behaving.

4. Relief + Healing

Depression feels like you’re stuck in a hole. Our specialized depression treatment includes IFS (Internal Family Systems Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Mindfulness, ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), Somatic Experiencing, Brainspotting, A.R.T. (Accelerated Resolution Therapy) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy) to help you climb out of that hole so that you can start seeing the light again.

5. Empowerment + Self-Acceptance

We believe in empowering you to take an active role in your own healing journey. Rather than viewing depression as an adversary to be conquered, we encourage you to embrace it as an opportunity for growth and self-discovery. We'll teach you to cultivate self-compassion, resilience, and acceptance, allowing you to navigate life's challenges with greater ease and authenticity. By embracing your thoughts and feelings without judgment, you can reclaim a sense of agency and empowerment over your life.

6. Direction + Purpose

We understand that depression can often leave you feeling lost and disconnected from your sense of purpose. Through depression therapy, we help you rediscover what truly matters to you and identify your unique strengths and values.

By aligning your actions with your core values and aspirations, you can create a meaningful and purpose-driven life. Our therapists provide guidance, support, and encouragement as you embark on this journey of self-discovery and personal growth. Together, we help you find direction and purpose, guiding you towards a brighter and more fulfilling future.

Embrace Your Truth, Live Authentically

We believe that you already have the answers within you. However, your inner wisdom may be buried under layers of criticism, judgment, stress, and high expectations. These external pressures can obscure your true self and make it difficult to navigate life’s challenges. Our depression treatment is designed to help you uncover your truth and live a more authentic and fulfilling life.

Uncovering Your Inner Wisdom

At Knot Counseling, we focus on helping you reconnect with your inner wisdom. Depression often serves as a signal that something deeper needs attention. By creating a safe and supportive environment, we encourage you to explore your feelings and experiences without fear of judgment. This process allows you to peel back the layers of negative self-talk and societal expectations, revealing the innate wisdom that lies within.

Living an Authentic Life

Through our tailored approach, we guide you towards living a life that is true to who you are. This involves recognizing and honoring your thoughts, feelings, and desires. As you gain clarity about your inner self, you begin to make choices that reflect your true values and aspirations, leading to a more authentic and satisfying life.

Questions About Depression Treatment?

Depression symptoms show up differently for everyone. 

If you feel down most of the time and aren’t able to enjoy activities that used to be pleasurable, you may be depressed. Feelings of depression can vary from mild to severe and interfere with your ability to work, study, sleep or socialize. 

Someone who is depressed usually has trouble thinking clearly and making decisions, sometimes believe things that are untrue (e.g., I’m a failure), and experiences changes in appetite, sleeping patterns or energy level. 

These depression symptoms can make even simple tasks difficult or cause problems at work or school. For some people, depression goes away by itself; for others, it doesn’t go away but it can be treated effectively with psychotherapy or medication.

If you’re living with depression, you may start to question if therapy is working. This can be extremely frustrating and depressing in itself, making you feel even more stuck than when you first started treatment. 

A common misconception is that if a person doesn’t improve quickly with depression treatment, then it was a waste of time or money. But most often, we need time to build rapport with our therapist and get into a good rhythm. 

Our therapists are trained in many different approaches, and the more your therapist understands about you, the better equipped they’ll be to design a personalized plan tailored around your individual needs. 

Once you and your therapist are in sync, our clients report almost immediate relief. The most important thing is to not give up and know that therapy does work; sometimes, just not as quickly as we would like it to.

 

Yes, lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, a healthy diet, sufficient sleep, and stress management techniques can support depression treatment and improve overall well-being.

Be patient, listen without judgment, and encourage them to continue with their treatment. Offer to help with tasks or accompany them to appointments if they need support.

The duration of treatment varies depending on the individual and the severity of their depression. Some people may see improvement in a few weeks, while others might need months or even years of ongoing therapy.
