Get Support to Manage Depression and Anxiety
Anxiety and depression are among the two most common mental health disorders adults experience. While these disorders are amongst the most common, each person’s experience of them differs. Etiology can stem from biological, developmental, or environmental factors including our experiences and social relationships. The presentation for each disorder may be temporary or chronic and may vary in symptom presentation and severity. Some people with anxiety may find themselves having difficulty concentrating, falling asleep, or may even experience panic attacks. For depression, individuals may find it hard to enjoy things that bring them joy, experience weight loss or weight gain, feel irritable, or even have thoughts of suicide.
It's not uncommon for someone with anxiety disorder to also suffer from depression and vice versa
The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that approximately 19.1% of adults will have experienced an anxiety disorder in the past year and 7.1% of adults will have experienced a major depressive episode in the past year.
How Can I Treat Anxiety or Depression?
At the Love Discovery Institute, we offer flexible ways of addressing these concerns, tailored to your specific needs. Some concerns are addressed with cognitive behavioral therapy, which means we challenge thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors and adopt new ways of managing our feelings. Other therapies use systemic or insight oriented approaches which explore early defenses, family dynamics, or relational patterns which can sometimes cause us distress. Once we gain a better understanding of these dynamics, we can create a richer understanding of the reasons why we may suffer. Depending on your desire to manage anxiety or depression at either the symptom level or explore a deeper process, we are committed to helping you gain clarity and healthier ways of managing your distress.
