Sadness, fear and anger are normal and healthy emotions. But when they become chronic and without respite, you need to get help quickly. We will help you get both short-term relief and long-term solutions for your depression and anxiety, so that you can begin to live lighter, healthier and happier again.
For many patients, chronic depression or anxiety is rooted in one or more deep emotional scars that have not healed properly. These may be painful memories that we've buried, recent losses that we have not fully mourned, or current challenges in our lives that seem too big and scary to face. In these cases, we strongly recommend an aggressive course of therapy to get the issues out in the open and process your feelings about them so that your mind can rest and your spirit can heal.
In some cases, we may recommend a limited side course of hypnotherapy as a way to provide some short-term relief while we are ferreting out the underlying issues. In other cases, we may suggest a special nutrition plan designed to keep your health up as you confront difficult emotions, and to reinforce your confidence in nourishing yourself.
For patients who may be good candidates for anti-depressant or anti-anxiety medications, we will be glad to discuss the options with you and your primary care physician.
