Everyone knows what it feels like to be nervous but what does it mean to be
"anxious"? Most of us have experienced these jittery, panic, and/or
sleeplessness feelings at some point in our lives. There may be times when
your worries don't completely consume you, but you still feel anxious, even
when there's no apparent reason.
Your anxiety, worries, or physical symptoms cause significant distress in
your personal, social, or work settings of your life. Worries can shift from
one concern to another and may change with time or age. Anxiety disorders
manifest themselves in several forms: Generalized Anxiety Disorder;
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder; Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder; and various
phobias (all of which fall under the umbrella of anxiety). When anxiety
becomes constant and interferes with the quality of life on a regular basis,
it is time to seek some help. I can provide you with that needed help.
Anxiety, worries, or physical symptoms will often cause a variety of
psychological effects, and the therapy that I provide helps rewire the
thought patterns of clients who are suffering. The therapy I provide shows
clients how to manage, control and reduce persistent anxiety and obsessive
worrying, as well as control any of their physical symptoms.
Everyone experiences occasions of extreme sadness or just feeling "down" but
when these feelings last for weeks or months without relief, it's time to
find a solution. I can help you find that solution.
There are many types of depression, including:
- Major Depression
- Persistent Depressive Disorder
- Bipolar Disorder
- Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
- Psychotic Depression
- Peripartum (Postpartum) Depression
- Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)
- 'Situational' Depression
- Atypical Depression
Symptoms of these various types of depression vary greatly. For example,
changes in appetite, sleep, low self-esteem, and low energy are just a few
common symptoms of depression. Those suffering from Bipolar Disorder,
however, might experience bouts of manic, high energy followed by severe
Major life events may also trigger depression. Other factors, such as
genetic vulnerability, severe life stressors, substances you may take
(medications, recreational drugs, and alcohol), or medical conditions can
affect the way your brain regulates your moods. I design programs of
therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes that help my clients manage
depression in a healthy way.
