What is causing your mental stress? 2. How are you coping with it? 3. When was the last time you had a physical to make sure your health is not an issue? I have added a link that provides a few tips.

    Hello, as a therapist for over 10-years, I am comfortable saying that counseling does work for anxiety. The things to look for are your fit with the therapist. By that, I mean do you like the therapist and their modality for treating anxiety. READ MORE

  • How long does therapy take for anxiety?

    Hello, there really is no time frame on how long treatment for anxiety takes. There are several things you have to consider such as: 1. Your level of motivation, 2. What is causing anxiety (past trauma history and/or current life stressors), 3. The treatment modality that is being used to treat the anxiety: a. Medication, b. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Interpersonal Therapy, 4. Your comfort with therapy, 5. Your support system. These are just a few things that you need to consider. So there really is no way to say definitively how long it takes. I hope this helps. READ MORE

  • How do I overcome anxiety without medication?

Examine your emotions. 5. Review your coping skills, if you do not have any, create some. These are just a few things that you need. READ MORE

  • What can I do with my son's anxiety attacks?

    Hello and thank you for reaching out.

I would also help to seek professional services for you and him. Most important, you remaining calm and emotionally regulated will help a lot. READ MORE

  • How can I help someone with manic depression?

    Hello and thank you for reaching out. Since you are stating your sister has manic depression, I am going to assume that she has been diagnosed with Bipolar. If not, I would recommend that she first get a physical to rule out any medical causes for the depression and then seek professional help. Bipolar disorder is typically a chronic and debilitating condition, but it is a treatable one. Medication is the first-line treatment with psychotherapy recommended as a critical adjunctive treatment. You can help her out by making sure she has set up a self-care plan. For example: * Actively participate in her treatment. * Monitor her mood, sleep, stressors, cognitive function, and her overall quality of life. This will help her identify if her medications are working, and understand what triggers her episodes. * Establish a daily routine that includes good sleep hygiene as sleep deprivation triggers manic episodes. * And most importantly, have a safety plan with warning signs, coping strategies, and support resources. READ MORE

  • Should I see a psychologist for my nightmares?

    Hello, if your nightmares are affecting your daily functioning and your sleep. I would suggest that you see a professional and discuss them. Talking about them may help. It is really hard to say at this time without knowing more details, but there may be an underline stressor that may be triggering the nightmares and working through that may help. READ MORE

  • Is marriage counseling worthwhile soon after getting married?

    It would not hurt to get counselling early on. It is most often easier to work on things earlier rather than waiting until they become overwhelming and out of control. Ask yourselves what you would want out of counselling? And are both of you willing to go voluntarily? READ MORE

  • What can I do for my child with suicidal thoughts?

    If you think she is in immediate danger, call 911 or a suicide hotline number — such as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (800-273-8255) in the US. If you suspect that she is thinking about suicide, talk to her immediately do not be afraid to use the word "suicide" it won't plant ideas in her head. Ask her about her feelings and listen. Don't dismiss her problems. Listen to her and reassure her you love her. Remind her that you are willing to help. She may need a higher level of care. READ MORE

  • How to fix our marriage and prevent divorce?

    Hello and thank you for reaching out. While this is a difficult time there is no easy answer or quick fix. Without knowing the details, I would suggest you and your wife sit down and discuss what is going on if it is possible. If it is too hard, I would suggest seeking marital therapy to discuss any concerns and to possibly work things out. READ MORE

  • Can a couple attend anger counseling together?

    Just a few questions for you to think about: When you lose your "cool," what happens? Do you become violent or verbally aggressive? If so, it is not recommended that you do. However, even if you do not, it would most likely be more beneficial if you each did your own program or counseling with the added couples sessions. READ MORE

Research suggests that the combination of medication and talk therapy may work best. READ MORE
