Mood Disorders

Depression, anxiety and panic are among the most common emotional struggles that we face. Depression can manifest in different ways such as deep sadness, tearfulness, hopelessness, or feeling that life is not worth living.  You may also be angry or feel empty. Your sleep and eating may be affected as well as sexual desire.  Other physical problems may occur more often.  

Anxiety can range from feeling a little nervous or fearful to a more severe panic reaction.

Mood swings are not uncommon.  Though painful, all of these respond well to different therapies. Therapy can help you find more effective coping strategies, learn how to manage emotions better, lessen feelings of negativity and assist you in changing patterns that have led to unhappiness.
