Depression & Anxiety Counseling

Are You Suffering from Chronic Depression and Anxiety? Then Next Steps Might Be Able to Help You.

Almost everyone feels anxious and depression every now and then. Anxiety will often kick in when we are doing something new or are faced with a new challenge. It is natural to be a little fearful; it is a common reaction to many of life’s stresses. However, what’s alarming is when anxiety and worry become chronic, and you can’t seem to shake the uncontrollable feeling for days on end, that’s when you need to get help. The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that about 16 million american adults have had at least one major depression episode in their life time. Our therapist, and clinical social workers, have experience in diagnosing and treating individuals with depression and mood disorders. 

At Next Steps, we have a team of professional and experienced depression and anxiety therapists who can help. We help you find the root cause of the issue, and if one cannot be found, then explore and consider other factors which may be triggering these anxiety attacks or feelings of being worried. We can help by creating a treatment plan once we have a deeper understanding of what’s causing the problem.

Do You Need Depression/Anxiety Therapy?

The common perception is that anxiety and depression is bad, but it serves a purpose. It is your body’s response to stress and allows you to act quickly when there is an emergency to protect yourself from danger. In many instances, anxiety also helps you work harder and allows you to stay focused while helping in otherwise tense situations.

For depression we are also mindful of how it can effect your entire life whether it’s at work, school, or with your significant other, if not treated it can lead you downhill. This is why we work closely with our patients in order to restore your motivation, energy levels, and your mood.
