Anytime you don’t feel like yourself, a visit with Drew at Sound Psychiatry and Wellness is helpful. Some of the common mental health conditions people schedule appointments for include:
Major depression causes persistent feelings of sadness that last for months or even years. Healthy lifestyle changes and prescription medication can relieve symptoms and improve your outlook.
Anxiety disorders cause intense worry and intrusive thoughts. Everyone gets anxious occasionally, but if your symptoms sap your energy or prevent you from focusing on other, more important tasks, treatment can provide relief. Drew treats generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and specific phobias.
OCD is characterized by obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors, such as persistent handwashing or the need to arrange objects in a specific order. The condition ranges in severity, from mild to debilitating.
PTSD is a behavioral condition that sometimes occurs after witnessing a violent or traumatic event, such as military combat, a car accident, or a natural disaster. If you have PTSD, you might have realistic flashbacks of the event that make you feel like you’re there.
Bipolar disorder causes you to have intense mood swings, from manic highs to extreme depressive lows. Prescription medication and counseling can help reduce the intensity of these episodes and improve your mental health.
