Depression and Feeling Down

Depression Counseling Tampa Florida

We can feel depressed or even just a little bit down for so many reasons.  When we are feeling this way, it can be hard to move forward or to be happy and fulfilled in the kind of way we would like to be. We lose motivation, feel helpless, and start to lose hope that things will ever get any better.  If you are feeling depressed and wanting to start feeling better, we will help you get to the bottom of what is going on and develop a plan for finding your way out of the fog. Underlying reasons for depression typically overlap and stem from multiple factors. There are certainly many causes and links to depression, but too many possible factors to outline here. Here are a few of them.

  • Interpersonal conflict
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Negative or distorted thinking patterns
  • Loss of someone you loved - either through the end of a relationship or death
  • Major life transitions that mark the end of old chapters and the beginning of new ones
  • Genetic traits and brain chemistry
  • Health-related issues
  • Personal or Professional Rejection
  • Certain Medications
  • Social Isolation
  • Other mental-health related issues

We understand how difficult it can be to take that first step to get started with counseling, so we want to make it as easy for you as possible. If you are considering therapy to address and to decrease symptoms of depression or just feeling down, you can either send us a message, call or text 813-515-9602, or email us at
