A key aspect in evaluating the success of your depression treatment is measuring how well your symptoms and side effects are being controlled. Major depressive disorder, also known as clinical depression, major depression, or unipolar depression, is one of the most common mental health disorders in the United States. More than 15.7 million U.S. adults had at least one depressive episode in 2014 — that’s about 6.7 percent of the U.S. population over the age of 18.
The goal of Depression Treatment isn’t to relieve some symptoms, it’s to address underlying causes. Terri Clinton Dichiser, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Kansas and Missouri, provides a safe, comfortable environment that allows you to put your thoughts and feeling into words, without fear of criticism or judgment. She will guide you into a better understanding and a different perspective on your life’s circumstances.
Many people who suffer with undiagnosed depression or anxiety reach for alcohol or drugs to calm their nerves or relieve them of emotional pain. In other words, they self-medicate. Rather than seek out some help for Depression Treatment, anxiety or chronic resentment, they seek their own solution — a solution which, while it works well for a while, eventually complicates the issues and leads to more pain.
We believe all things should be attainable: a successful career, good friends, happy marriage and family. But, we often find ourselves feeling unsettled, dissatisfied and depressed just trying to keep up. Terri can help you deal with the external obstacles, social attitudes or your own internal barriers that stand in your way with Depression Treatment.
Are you having complications associated with untreated depression? If left untreated, depression can have a serious impact on a person and their family. It can lead to other complications, both physical and emotional, including:
- alcohol abuse
- substance abuse
- anxiety disorders
- family conflicts or relationship problems
- work- or school-related problems
- social isolation or difficulty building and maintaining relationships
- immune disorders
New research is bringing to light that chemical imbalances in the brain is actually a myth for individuals coping with depression. Terri proposes a better way to deal with depression is a positive lifestyle to change your neural pathways with Depression Treatment. Your brain can change as Terri helps you develop different behavior and beliefs.
