Depressed Mood & Low Self-Esteem
The Psychologists at McNally Psychology can help those suffering from depression and low self-esteem.
You feel stuck. Nothing is working out the way you had hoped, and you blame yourself. You constantly compare yourself to others, which leads to feelings of inadequacy. You tell yourself you are not smart enough, not attractive enough, not funny enough, not good enough. You may have even convinced yourself you do not deserve success, happiness, or love.
On some days, you can put on a happy face and mask the hurt and pain you are feeling. On other days, getting out of bed can feel like a debilitating task. You lack energy and motivation to take care of yourself and other basic responsibilities.
You wish there was some way to get back to the days where you felt a sense of purpose. You would love to be able to experience life more fully, lean into its highs and lows, and become stronger as a result. You want to see what others see in you. At McNally Psychology, we are here to tell you it is possible to feel better.
Our mood can affect how we think, feel, and behave. Depression can negatively impact our ability to think logically and rationally. When we feel badly, we are more likely to engage in rigid, self-defeating beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world. Feelings of depression may bring a heaviness sensation to our bodies and can decrease our motivation to make positive life changes.
We can help you understand the nature of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and challenge your rigid, self-defeating beliefs. Once you learn skills to cope with feelings of sadness and loss of interest, you can find out who you are and what you want in life. Then you can focus on what matters most. Please call us today to schedule an appointment to enhance your mood and self-esteem.
