Depression happens. When someone is depressed they feel sad most of the time, sometimes even worthless and hopeless. They may lose interest in things they once enjoyed like going out with friends or hiking. Often they have disrupted sleep (being unable to sleep or seemingly wanting to sleep all the time). They also may have problems with their appetite (again, either increased or decreased with possible weight fluctuations). Most devastating of all they can become suicidal and worse yet actually attempt to take their own lives.
There are, of course, many therapies available for depression. Most of us know of people who have had depression and have sought traditional therapies. By this I mean the kind of therapy that takes place in an office while sitting across from a therapist. However, there is an alternative. There are growing numbers of therapists who do online depression therapy!
