Michigan’s winter has arrived, and despite the merriment of the holidays, many local residents suffer from Major Depressive Disorder with Seasonal Pattern (formerly called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)).

"I recognize the pain of seasonal sufferers and wish to bring them needed support to create the life they are meant to live," says Troy-based Licensed Professional Counselor, Healer, and Life Coach, Anahid Lisa Derbabian, LPC, MA, NCC.

Derbabian is offering counseling/healing sessions to those who are ready to disengage from the darkness and take back their life. Plus, for those searching for a meaningful and valuable holiday gift, she is introducing a new offering…Counseling, Coaching & Healing gift certificates.

Below are symptoms of Major Depressive Disorder with Seasonal Pattern, which Derbabian has shared from the National Institute of Mental Health:
• Low energy
• Hypersomnia (excessive sleeping and sleepiness)
• Social withdrawal (hibernating)
• Overeating
• Craving carbohydrates
• Weight gain

“If you grapple with these," says Derbabian, "you can become consciously aware of it and begin to experience the freedom of taking back your life.”

For those seeking to move past seasonal challenges, heal from the past and move forward with purpose and passion; and for those seeking an unusual and meaningful holiday healing gift certificate for a loved one or friend, contact Anahid Lisa Derbabian at 248-202-0583 and visit her website at
