Are you feeling down? Is your mood getting in the way of your potential to succeed? Depression is one of the most common mental health issues that adults face and can affect almost all aspects of our daily lives if left untreated. It can result in having low energy, an increased or decreased appetite, having difficulty concentrating, or a loss of interest in things you once found fun and enjoyable. It can become a chore just to get out of bed in the morning and take care of your everyday responsibilities. Don’t let your depression take hold and leave you feeling worthless and hopeless. Serenity Lane offers therapy to adults suffering from depression. Together we’ll create an individualized plan that will fit your unique needs so you can begin to feel like yourself again. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) we’ll look at underlying themes that shape the way we see ourselves, the world, and our future.
If you experience intense emotional instability and it’s difficult to regulate or manage your emotions in a way that’s productive, you may have bipolar or a mood disorder. Bipolar disorder is characterized by having prolonged fluctuations between manic and depressive episodes. During mania, you may have high energy, take extreme risks, sleep deprivation, have delusions of grandeur, or exhibit extreme behavior. During mania you’ll feel productive, but don’t realize the consequences of your actions until you’ve come out of the episode. After the manic episode, you may slide back to baseline or into depression for a period of time typically lasting two or more weeks. Therapy can help you regain control of your emotions and promote a productive and healthy life.
