Depression

Depression comes in all different shapes and sizes. Often clients may seek medication management to help alleviate the symptoms of depression.  With or without medication, therapy is a great source of support for those suffering from depression. At ARC you will find not just an empathetic counselor, but multiple other supports including different perspectives, identifying of personal thoughts that may be keeping you from moving forward, lifestyle strategies to help manage symptoms, goal setting and creating shared hope with another invested individual. Depression can be a temporary reaction to a major life event or an ongoing struggle that can seem like a very heavy weight. At ARC we come alongside you, we do not minimize your situation or feelings, but rather help to reframe them, identifying different priorities and fresh approaches to support a more positive outlook and day to day functionality.
