Depression Counseling & Therapy in Durhamam - Hillsborough NC



Everyone feels down or sad from time to time, but these feelings usually pass within a few days. Sometimes, however, people experience an excessive or prolonged amount of sadness. In these cases, depression becomes a disruptive and debilitating force, interfering with daily life and normal functioning and requires treatment.


If you are experiencing problems sleeping, feeling physically and emotionally drained even after a night of rest, feeling hopeless and/or helpless, or if you no longer find pleasure in things or people that once brought you pleasure, or have thoughts of hurting yourself or others, you may be experiencing depression.

Sometimes depression is linked to life events (e.g. after childbirth, major illness, or trauma or during certain seasons or difficult periods), and other times a low or depressed mood seems to come out of nowhere.


Depression can affect people on all levels: emotionally, physically, spiritually, and socially. This is why it's important to care for the whole person, not just the physical symptoms.

Using a holistic, empowering approach, I work with people in ways tailored to their individual needs. Together, we will use a number of therapeutic techniques that are especially helpful for reducing depression and gaining a sense of well-being, including psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), cognitive therapy, mind-body therapy, meditation, and behavior therapy. I can help you understand the underlying meaning of your depression as well as develop skills and tools to help you feel better.

"Carolyn is such a caring and genuine and wonderful therapist. I can't express how much my work with Carolyn has helped me. I'm able to handle my anxiety and depression and issues with my family in much healthier ways. I feel really present to my life and my relationships with everybody in my family have improved so much. It's not that I'm happy all the time, or enjoy where I am all the time, but I'm ok with that now, and I am present so much more of the time, and so much more able to recognize when I feel sad, or angry, or happy...
