Depression, anxiety, and adjustment problems can impact all areas of your and your child’s life by disrupting your (or a loved one’s) social life, impeding your career, and causing stress, panic, fear based or poor decisions, eating and sleep issues.
You may have thoughts like I’m not good enough, I’m a failure, or I can’t handle it. You may also feel sad, disconnected, overwhelmed, or unloved. Possibly you’re struggling with low self-esteem or a lack of confidence. Fear of rejection or disappointment from ongoing relationship challenges may leave you feeling hopeless and stuck.
Perhaps you or your loved one has tried to escape or avoid your pain through isolating, overworking, alcohol or drug use or abuse, or other compulsive behaviors. Maybe you’ve done talk therapy or used prescription drugs, but only experienced partial or no relief, leaving you even more discouraged.
