I have studied trauma, grief/loss along with codependency, bipolar disorder , and addiction behavior.
Are you depressed? Are you anxious? Suffering a breakup, or job loss, family conflict? Everyone needs an ear to talk to sometimes, and it's so helpful to have a nonjudgmental person to vent to. So often, our lives are filled with communication issues, addiction or relationship problems and we don't know where to turn. Sometimes one's angst has been there since childhood, and many know they need help, but just need guidance on how to begin. Don't deny yourself the chance to be empowered!

As a young adult you have a lot of worries: sorting out career, relationships, setting up your future. All of that alone can be stress enough, but add depression, anxiety, and the psychological struggles that come with that stress it gets even worse. While your struggles are very real, it can be difficult to get anyone to take them seriously. People your age don't have any more insight than you do about it, and older adults don't remember how frightening these struggles can be. They don't remember feeling like you're behind on the imaginary timeline, or feeling less accomplished than you should be. You aren't alone.

I am here to help. I am here if you need me. Is there anything I can do? These are phrases that we have all used. These are phrases we say to one another all the time. They are heartfelt and sincere. These statements are at the cornerstone of my purpose for becoming a counselor. The stresses of the modern world are often overwhelming. When stress from illness, school, career change, financial burdens or relationship change are added to our daily lives, we often feel overwhelmed and needing help.

Therapy is about where you are and where you want to go. It is about acceptance of your values and the goals that you seek to reach. Therapy doesn't have to be a long painful journey. The idea that people need therapy puts a negative vibe on your experience to grow. Resolving conflicts, getting over issues of the past or solving current issues needs to be a positive quest to make things better in a way that is comfortable to you. I believe in short term therapy which has been successful with my Adult and Adolescent clients who experience depression, anxiety, trauma and many other disorders.

Bipolar Disorder Therapists

What is the most successful approach to treating bipolar disorder?

Living with bipolar disorder can be challenging, and a number of therapies have been found effective in providing support to patients as they gain the skills to understand and manage the disorder. Family-focused therapy is often helpful for children and teens (the majority of cases develop before age 19); it aims to minimize mood cycling by improving family communication and reducing conflict. It also helps young people navigate the developmental challenges the disorder can create. Cognitive and behavioral therapy (CBT) and variants such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) help patients manage the thoughts and feelings that influence bipolar mood swings as well as develop specific behavioral strategies to counteract them.

What happens in therapy for bipolar disorder?

Because the patterns of mood switching and its triggers differ for each person and can change over time, mood tracking or monitoring becomes a basic way patients learn about the nature of their condition. One of the most common features of therapy is finding a workable method of mood monitoring, in which patients track their daily activities and rate their moods, then use the findings to adjust routines accordingly. Patients learn ways of handling the many stresses that arise in life so that they do not trigger mood swings.

What kinds of problems does therapy help with?

Like many other mental health disorders, BPD is heavily influenced by stress; therapy provides skills for coping with stressors of all kinds. Therapy is extremely important for helping individuals identify the situations that may trigger mood switching, so that mood swings can be prevented. Therapy may especially target recognition of the early stages of mood change so that they can be managed. In addition, therapy helps patients deal with the significant amount of turbulence the disorder can create in relationships and in work life.

What is the goal of therapy for bipolar disorder?

Therapy helps patients set up their lives to maintain stability so that their mood isn’t constantly threatened by daily events. Perhaps the first task of therapy is to educate people about the nature of the disorder. At the same time, a primary goal of therapy is to enhance adherence to drug treatment. Extended periods of mood stability can prompt patients to discontinue medication, triggering relapse, while the early phases of manic episodes can feel so energizing that patients stop medication, ushering in full-blown mania and the altered self-perception that can lead to destructive behaviors. Another major goal of therapy is to understand one’s mood patterns so as to minimize both the frequency and intensity of mood cycling.
