Depression can cause an array of symptoms, both overt and subtle. In both cases, it can interfere with your energy level, overall satisfaction and motivation. At the outset of treatment, we will assess your symptoms, patterns (e.g., changes in sleep, eating, relationships) and any uncomfortable feelings you may be experiencing (e.g., worthlessness, guilt and hopelessness).
Below are some questions to assist you in understanding whether you are exhibiting signs of depression:
- Are you easily overwhelmed?
- Are you feeling sad and worthless?
- Are you less engaged in activities you used to enjoy?
- Are you feeling paralyzed from moving forward with your life?
- Are you feeling less joy?
- Are things losing meaning?
While suffering from depression can significantly impact your quality of life, it is also treatable. By using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based treatments such as IPT (Interpersonal Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), and mindfulness-based therapies, we can work together to identify the root of your depression, process past experiences and understand the how your depression interacts with other symptoms you may experience such as stress, anxiety, substance use, work-related difficulties and relationship issues. We will collaborate to help you achieve your goals of living a more satisfying and joyful life.
Stress and Anxiety are a normal part of everyday life. In fact, at low levels, anxiety can be incredibly useful by helping us stay safe, increase motivation and perform optimally. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States every year. Unfortunately, these numbers are increasing due to reasons including poor sleep hygiene, the 24/7 news cycle, and social media. In addition, more people are reporting anxious thoughts due to a reduction in the stigma of mental health issues. It can make life exhausting. Fortunately, anxiety disorders are highly treatable.
General Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
GAD is characterized by persistent and excessive worry about a variety of things. It can include intrusive and ruminating thoughts. GAD can feel as if your worries are controlling you, guiding you, and significantly interfering with your quality of life. GAD can be caused by a number of genetic, environmental, and situational causal factors.
Approximately 15 million Americans are affected by social anxiety disorder. When left untreated, social anxiety disorder can persist for many years and become exacerbated by avoidant behavior patterns. However, cognitive behavioral therapy is extremely effective in treating social anxiety disorder and drastically improving your quality of life. Start treatment and start living a more fulfilling life today.
