Anxiety and Depression

Anxiety

Experiencing racing thoughts about events you can't control?

 

Have constant worry, stress or fear about your health, your family or your relationships?

 

Feel you are not good enough and that you will one day be found out?

Anxiety is an emotion that we all experience from time to time to varying degrees of intensity. Just like joy, disappointment and frustration, anxiety is a feeling that comes and goes and is usually in response to an identifiable stressor or experience.

Excessive anxiety can manifest differently in everyone, especially in children and adolescents. It can also be the result of living a way that does not support your true self such as those struggling with gender identity or as a result of trauma from your past that went unprocessed. We are here to support and work through all the ways anxiety is experienced and by using evidence-based of psychotherapy such as DBT, EMDR, CBT and mindfulness based techniques, we can provide relief.

 

 Depression

Ever have difficulty waking up or getting to sleep regularly?

 

Feel like your normal life activities are difficult to do and leaved you exhausted?

 

Wonder why you are here and what is your purpose?

Sadness is an emotion that we all experience from time to time to varying degrees of intensity. Just like joy, anxiety and anger, sadness is a feeling that comes and goes and is usually in response to an identifiable stressor or experience.

It is when sadness becomes very intense and remains at that intense level for a significant period of time that it can affect your everyday functioning. 

Would you be surprised to know that many out there function within a high level of depression and don't even realize it.  Through supportive, insight-oriented psychotherapy coupled with cognitive-behavioral techniques, mindfulness-based strategies, and trauma informed approaches, therapy can help decrease or manage these feelings of depression. You don't have to go through this alone!
