Depression Q&A

What are the signs of depression?

Depression often causes symptoms that change your whole life for the worse. Some common problems include: 

  • Sad mood
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Feelings of pessimism
  • Feelings of guilt
  • Loss of interest in your hobbies
  • Withdrawing from friends and family
  • Low energy
  • Poor sleep
  • Appetite changes
  • Weight changes
  • Physical issues like headaches, cramps, and digestive problems
  • Preoccupation with death
  • Thoughts of suicide (suicidal ideation is an emergency requiring immediate help)

You don’t have to bear these burdens alone: the Northwest Psychiatry & Counseling specialists offer compassionate patient-focused care that can help you get through these challenges.  

How can I tell when my sadness is actually depression?

Sadness is a key aspect of depression, so it’s natural to wonder whether you’re dealing with normal feelings or a more serious depressive disorder. 

In general, your sadness might be major depressive disorder if you’re struggling for at least two weeks, and it disrupts your daily life (sleep, work, eating, and other basic daily needs). 

Less-severe symptoms of depression that last for at least two years may be a type of depression called persistent depressive disorder (dysthymia). 

The best way to know what you’re dealing with is an evaluation at Northwest Psychiatry & Counseling. The team can expertly assess your physical and mental symptoms, make a diagnosis, and give you the help you need. 

What can I expect from depression treatment? 

The Northwest Psychiatry & Counseling team offers customized depression treatment through telehealth and in the office. Treatments include:


Mental health counseling is usually the foundation of depression care. Counseling helps you detect the root causes of your depression, guides you to change your thought patterns, and gives you a road map to healthy change. 


Medication, like antidepressants, can offer dramatic depression relief for many people. But, because the goal of depression treatment is to create positive, long-lasting changes in your life, you need counseling alongside your medication. 

Alternative therapies

Alternative therapies, like transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), have demonstrated remarkable results in people with treatment-resistant depression and depression alongside anxiety (anxious depression).
