When to worry about anxiety & depression.

It’s natural to feel occasionally sad or hopeless, or to worry that bad things might happen.

Adults face pressure from lots of directions: relationships, money and work, kids, aging parents and more. They face tough situations with big consequences:

Feeling anxious, worried and down tends to feed on itself. With professional help, you can break that cycle and get back to a happier place. 

Watch for these red flags.

No one's to blame.

Anxiety and depression are often simply the mind’s way of telling us that we need better ways to handle the situations we face.

Most of us aren’t born knowing how to “rewire” our thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

We don’t instantaneously develop new ways to communicate in difficult situations.

We may not have problem-solving skills at our fingertips.

That’s why our treatment approach is evidence-based: it teaches proven skills that put you back in charge of your thoughts, feelings, emotions and actions. You learn effective ways to communicate even in really tough situations.

And you learn and practice problem-solving skills. 

Science-based techniques that improve anxiety and depression.

Medication for anxiety and depression.

We believe strongly that powerful prescription medications, while helpful for some clients, should be used with caution. They should not be the first or only treatment choice.

Medication to manage anxiety and depression should always be accompanied by ongoing cognitive-behavioral counseling.

This two-pronged approach helps minimize both dosage and the duration of medication use.

Our on-site psychiatric provider is available to screen and diagnose mental health and behavioral health conditions, and can prescribe psychiatric and mood management medications as needed, including ADHD medications.
