Your authority is in your authenticity, simply meaning the more honest, accepting, vulnerable and open you are with yourself first, is the more empowered you will be to address and heal any area of your life. We must radically accept our selves with compassion and honor. Self honor is the beginning of personal freedom. Radical self acceptance is the antecedent. I promote and empower positivity in your daily reality. Many of us struggle with societal and internal pressures and judgements. Because we judge ourselves in our minds, we find ourselves trapped often in them,limiting our potential and dishonoring our truths. I want to partner with you by helping you get out of your mind and past ways and get into your life, living in the present possibilities. My ideal client(s) are people who are willing to learn and grow within. I have no biases with religion, size, race, sexuality age and gender. It is my practice to be judgement free and accepting.

Young adulthood can be one of the most challenging times of life. From the demands of school/work, to relationships and friendships – there’s a lot to juggle. All of this can leave you feeling anxious and depressed. Life’s challenges can feel impossible to navigate on your own. Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, you get blindsided. Maybe it’s a breakup. Maybe it’s the loss of a job. Maybe you begin to question your own values, your path in life, or realize you no longer have things in common with the people you once knew. Whatever your struggle may be, I want you to know that I’ve been there and that there is hope.

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.
