Never underestimate the importance of your mental health. Stress, depression, and anxiety take a tremendous toll on the mind and body, and it’s not always easy to overcome these feelings without help. We strongly believe in a person’s ability to achieve good mental health through counseling and therapy. Medications are prescribed therapy, as our primary goal is to help you reach a place of emotional clarity by addressing the mental and physical aspects of your condition.
Below is an overview of some mental conditions:
Depression – When dealing with clinical depression, even getting out of bed can seem like an impossible task. This condition can be difficult to empathize with if you’ve never experienced it personally. For people struggling with these feelings, trying to see things more positively is extremely difficult, and their inability to feel happy can cause them to sink further into depression. Some of the side effects of depression include appetite changes, lethargy, and thoughts of suicide.
Anxiety – Sometimes mistaken for shyness or stand-offish behavior, anxiety disorders include a variety of thoughts and feelings that make people feel tense or fearful. Anxiety can be the result of both physical conditions and social conditioning. It can lead to sleep disorders, high blood pressure, irritability, and panic attacks that may feel similar to a heart attack.
Disruptive Behavior – It can be difficult to tell whether or not your child has a disruptive behavior as children often have temper tantrums and lash out in unexpected ways. However, when this behavior is so consistent that it becomes a constant concern in your life, it is time to consult with a psychiatrist.
ADHD – Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is a genetic condition that affects the brain. People with this condition have a hard time paying attention to any one topic for even a brief period of time. They may seem restless and disinterested and have a difficult time focus in school. There is no cure for ADHD, meaning if someone has it as a child, they will carry it into adulthood. ADHD can be managed with counseling and medication. The earlier patients begin treatment, the better they will be able to control their condition as they get older.
