Specializing in Mood Disorders, Psychotherapy and Adolescent Mental Health

 
Individual Therapy

Individual therapy may be for anyone who has been newly diagnosed with a mental or emotional disorder, is experiencing emotional disturbances, grief, other psychological challenges, or seeking adjunctive therapy to medication management. You, your child, or a dependent spouse may need someone to talk to about the difficulties that are interrupting their ability to live, laugh and love. Frequently triggered by stress, symptoms of anxiety, depression and other mood disorders can improve with talk therapy.

 

During a one-on-one session with your provider, you will explore various techniques to help you regain control of your thoughts, behavior, and approach to coping with stress and life’s disappointments. Through techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy (IPT) and the therapeutic use of self, your therapist can become your trusted agent and partner in your care, as you navigate your way through internal conflicts, emotional distress, relational conflicts, or maladaptive coping mechanisms.

 
Mood Disorders

A mood disorder is a mental health condition that affects a person’s emotional state. From day-to-day, changes in mood are normal depending upon life’s circumstances and situations. With Mood Disorder, however, the extreme highs and lows can be disruptive. A person’s behavior may be unpredictable or negatively affect the person’s ability to function in or around others, at home, work, or school. Some common mood disorders include depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. To receive a diagnosis, a person must be assessed by a mental health care provider.

 

During your intake visit, you will receive a comprehensive evaluation, which lasts approximately 60 minutes. During this time, your provider will take the time to get to know you by hearing your story and address your most concerning symptoms. As a partner in your care, we work together as a team to identify your emotional and mental health goals, in addition to discussing the best treatment options for you. In addition to medication management of mood disorders, we can provide individual counseling via in-person* or telepsychiatry visits.
