Adult Depression Treatment
There are physiological, chemical and emotional aspects of depressive disorders than affect a person’s ability to function day-to-day and enjoy life. Depression will unsettle the family dynamic and, left untreated, can lead to suicidal thoughts and self-harm. No one has to live like this as there are many methodologies that can treat these conditions successfully
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Military and our first responders are familiar with post-traumatic stress disorders, also known as PTSD, though this isn’t exclusive to our service members. It can happen after exposure to a single traumatic event or a multitude of them during a time in one’s past. Those who suffer with PTSD are left with debilitating triggers, conscious and subconscious, affecting physiological and emotional livelihood. Through EMDR, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapies and others, we can provide relief.
With the increase in our exposure to daily stress, whether actual or perceived, anxiety disorders diagnoses continue to escalate. They can develop for different reasons and manifest without warning. As a result, panic attacks, social anxiety, PTSD, phobias and obsessive-compulsive behaviors can be paralyzing to a person’s function.
