Our specialists help their patients diagnose and manage mental health issues that negatively affect their daily lives. Below are just a few of many behavioral health issues we help patients control.
The state of anxiety is characterized by an unpleasant state of inner worry and turmoil. People that are having anxiety may withdraw from certain situations for fear of provoked anxiety in the past. Anxiety may also occur with other mental disorders.
Many adults are under an abundance of stress from a variety of sources in their life. Counseling can help you better manage how you physically and mentally handle stressful conditions.
Depression is a persistent state of low mood or apathy, which has a significant effect on a person’s behavior, thoughts, and well-being. While depression is a normal reaction to certain life events, a constant state of depression should be treated by a medical professional.
Bipolar disorder is more complex; people with this condition experience episodes of depression as well as mania. This can lead to agitation, risky behaviors, and poor decision making. It is a serious condition which requires management by a doctor.
Postpartum depression is a form of depression that can affect both sexes after childbirth and is typically marked by low energy, sadness, lowered sex drive, irritability, anxiety, and changes in eating and sleeping patterns. Postpartum depression can adversely affect the paternal and maternal relationship with the child and have negative impacts on child development.
