Depression & Anxiety Disorders
It is important to seek treatment if you are struggling with depression. Treatment can help you gain an understanding of your illness, incorporate new coping skills to manage symptoms, explore different perspectives on current stressors, make sense of past negative experiences, and challenge potentially distorted thought patterns that perpetuate your depressed mood.
Whether biological or situational, depression can be alleviated with a variety of interventions.
Everyone experiences some form of anxiety at one point in their lives and mild stress can even be healthy. However, any form of persistent anxiety can be debilitating and impact many areas of daily functioning including physical health, sleep, and relationships.
Therapy can assist you in identifying the thought patterns and specific triggers that perpetuate your anxiety, teach you to incorporate new coping skills to manage and prevent symptoms from exacerbating, and help you feel overall less fearful in your daily life.
