Many people I talk to are confused when they come to me. They know that they don't feel good, that they are in emotional pain.
Most already consulted a physician and - after a brief conversation and maybe a few tests - are told: You have depression and/or Anxiety.
And here are some pills to take to help.
Often, that's it.
They walk away thinking they are defective, something in their system is "out of order", maybe even they feel even more worthless than before and that there is no hope for full recovery.
The opposite is true. There is more to depression recovery than just popping pills, and getting support from a qualified mental health professional is very important.
I want to help clear the confusion on which professional to choose in which situation (and it many be not what you thought).
