Depression, also known as clinical depression or major depressive disorder, may be common, but it is still a serious mood disorder. Symptoms of depression affect how you think, feel, and manage daily activities like eating, sleeping, and work. There are multiple types of depression and different levels of severity, so we offer a number of evidence-based therapies to treat our patients and work with them in order to meet their needs.
Although occasionally experiencing anxiety is completely normal, when it becomes overwhelming and constant, it may be time to reach out for help. Anxiety disorders often appear as generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, or phobia-related disorders. For those struggling with anxiety, we utilize a number of evidence-based therapies to help relieve anxious feelings and thoughts and supply our patients with the tools they need to lead a healthier life.
