Depression, anxiety and panic are some of the most common, yet distressing feelings we may encounter. 1 in 5 adults will experience depression and/or anxiety in their life time. However, its still not talked about openly and many still struggle to manage their discomfort alone. Therapy can help you learn the skills needed to address more than just the symptoms, it can help you engage in your life more effectively.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post a traumatic event. Trauma is perceived differently by all and multiple traumas can make it more difficult to effectively manage the the post trauma distress and disconnection. Therapy can help you learn to effectively manage and reduce symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Many people struggle with over using substances as a form of coping with daily stress or other health/mental health difficulties. Often times it starts off with enjoyment and leads to a form of coping and potential uncontrollable use that impacts every facet of living. In therapy you can work to reduce or eliminate your substance use while working towards realistically and effectively managing contribution factors that often cause barriers in meeting your goals.
