Feeling depressed? We can help. 

What is depression?

We all go through ups and downs and that is perfectly normal. Sadness is a normal reaction to life’s struggles, setbacks, and disappointments. Many people use the word “depression” to explain these kinds of feelings, but depression is much more than just sadness.

Some people describe depression as having an impending doom or feeling as if they live in a “black hole”. They might feel empty, lifeless or apathetic. Others feel angry, aggressive and restless.

Whatever the symptoms, depression is different from normal sadness in that it engulfs your day-to-day life, interfering with your ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and have fun. The feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and worthlessness are intense and unrelenting, with little, if any, relief.

What is too much anxiety?

We all feel stress at times due to our busy lives at home, work, and school.  If you are feeling nervous, shaky, worrying daily, having a lot of muscle tension, panic attacks, sleep problems, and fatigue, you probably are suffering from too much anxiety.  I use DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), cognitive therapy, and/or mindfulness (similar to relaxation exercises) to help get rid of excessive anxiety. Sometimes depression and anxiety occur together.  Both can be treated with DBT, cognitive therapy, and/or mindfulness treatment.  Please don’t accept feeling depressed anymore.  Give me a call at 443-538-1247 with any questions and to set up an appointment.


How does therapy help? 

When you come in I will listen to your feelings. We will talk about your life story and how it relates to your feeling depressed. We will identify the issues that are blocking you from feeling happy. If you are feelings of depression due to current stressors we will set goals to get you back to your true self.

If your feelings of depression come from past pain and or loss we will work through your pain to get to a better place. It usually only takes a few sessions to start feeling calmer and happy. You deserve to be joyful and at peace!

What do our clients have to say about us?

"I went to therapy with Jeff Crouch feeling depressed and anxious. After a few weeks of therapy I started to feel more like my old self. I stayed in therapy for a couple o fmore months. He helped me validate my feelings and self worth."
 ~Cara, Columbia MD

"I was not enjoying things I used to like because I couldn’t concentrate or sleep. I had read about cognitive therapy and had a consultation with Mr. Crouch to learn more about it before starting therapy. He talked to me about how it works and I decided to give it a try. He helped me get back on track and feel good again."
~Pete, Ellicott City MD

I was feeling anxious and worrying a lot which sapped my energy. My friend mentioned that she had seen Jeff Crouch in therapy and how much he had helped her. I decided to make an appointment and I’m so glad I did. I learned how to change my worrying to more positive ways of dealing with my feelings. Jeff helped me a great deal."
