Anxiety and Depression
You can decrease your stress, anxiety, and depression.
Do you feel overwhelmed with anxiety, or have you been feeling depressed?
If you are having difficulty managing your stress, you may have days when you feel completely overwhelmed. Many life circumstances are incredibly stressful, such as quarter-life and midlife transitions, where much of your life roles, responsibilities, and relationships shift and change. Suddenly, life seems and is very different, and it takes a while to figure it all out and decide how to create a new normal. Managing anxiety can be exhausting. It is difficult to feel nervous, agitated, hyper-vigilant, and/or worried. Experiencing these states takes an awful lot of energy and often leaves people feeling tired and overspent. If you are interested in working together on alleviating your anxiety and worry, we would focus on several strategies that can help.
