Therapists in Georgia specializing in Depression and Compassion-Focused Therapy

Therapy for Depression

Depression often causes people to feel sad, empty, or hopeless, and can cause a lack of interest in life. It can also affect a person's thinking patterns and physical health. Working with a therapist who specializes in depression may reduce symptom frequency and severity and lead to a better quality life.

Compassion-Focused Therapy

Compassion-focused therapy is used to treat enduring mental health issues associated with a history of abuse or neglect. It cultivates skills related to compassion for self and others to regulate mood and promote feelings of safety and well-being. You’ll find mental health professionals who specialize in compassion-focused therapy listed below.
