Depression and Anxiety

How can I find the strength to live life fully?

Do you ever feel there’s a dark cloud above you that goes wherever you go? You’re plagued by an emptiness that makes you want to curl up, close your eyes, and hide…and you’re not even sure why. You struggle to put on a happy face for those around you, because you’re embarrassed. (It’s all in your head, right?) You don’t have the energy to explain yourself, or you don’t want to be a bother. Nevertheless, your depression is starting to affect your ability to focus on your job. It is starting to interfere with having honest, meaningful relationships with your partner, family, and friends. You just feel helpless, hopeless, and tired. Where can you find the strength and energy to move forward with your life?

To make matters worse, you may also be experiencing anxiety, that steady state of crippling worry, fear, or dread. Perhaps you’ve even reached the point of panic attacks: those sudden, unexpected episodes of intense terror that give you heart palpitations, dizziness, numbness, and more. You’ve tried numerous drugs to control this anxiety (as well as depression), but the side effects just make things harder. Now, you find yourself avoiding situations that have triggered previous panic attacks, such as taking a plane trip, driving to work, or being alone with your children. This isn’t a way to live, but how can you move beyond these feelings in a way that feels healthy and lasting?

Depression and anxiety can make you feel defeated and closed off from the world, but the practitioners at Kwan-Yin Healing Arts Center are here to listen and connect with you. These healing professionals will work to help you recover your confidence, strength, and joy. Combining technical expertise with open ears and kind hearts, they won’t give up until they see you ready to meet your life with energy and peace of mind.
