Depression Symptoms – What are the Signs of Depression?

We specialize in online therapy for anxiety, depression, and other related disorders.

Depression is a mood disorder that causes persistent sadness and loss of interest. It affects how people feel, think, and behave and can lead to various emotional and physical problems; i.e., you may have trouble doing normal daily activities and feeling as if life is not worth living.

Depression symptoms may include any of the following:

  • Persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” mood
  • Feelings of hopelessness and pessimism
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies, activities, and sex
  • Decreased energy and fatigue
  • Restlessness, irritability
  • Thoughts of death or suicide, suicide attempts
  • Low appetite and weight loss
  • Over-eating and weight gain
  • Persistent physical symptoms that do not respond to treatment

Our depression therapists use cognitive behavioral therapy as a strong option for treating depression and reducing relapse or recurrence after therapy has ceased.
