Psychologist in Naples and Marco Island
There are times in all of our lives when we find it difficult to handle situations by ourselves. Sometimes we just cannot seem to find the right answers. Or perhaps even ask the right questions. It is during these times that we should reach for help from someone who can aid us in sorting out the issues that are troubling us.
You may have experienced these symptoms in the recent past or feel some of these symptoms currently: depressed mood during most of each day, lack of interest in pleasurable activities, significant weight gain or loss, trouble sleeping or sleeping too much, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness or even thoughts of death.
That’s where I come in — to help you look at your feelings of depression, hopelessness, worry, and sleeplessness and help you find answers to relieve your pain.
Perhaps anxiety has taken control of your life including a sense of being overwhelmed, racing thoughts in your head and moments of extreme panic. Anxiety can also take the form of social anxiety, phobias, panic attacks and agoraphobia.
Generalized anxiety is the most common. Do you worry excessively, feel keyed up or on edge, experience fatigue, difficulty concentrating, sleep disturbances, muscle tensions? You and I can work together to reduce and alleviate these symptoms.
Perhaps you are feeling as though you are on an emotional roller coaster with severe mood swings and feeling like you’re flying high one moment and feeling depressed and irritable at other times. These symptoms of bipolar disorder can be very disruptive to your life.
Other signs of bipolar disorder include experiencing elevated or expansive moods, unusually high energy and grandiosity. Do you feel as though you do not need sleep, are more talkative, involved in high risk activities and highly irritable? These are just some of the signs of the manic state of bipolar disorder.
If you recognize these symptoms in yourself and want to make changes to live a happier life, I am here to help. In a safe and comfortable environment, together we will explore these issues. By looking at your beliefs and the paths that you are taking we will begin to see what changes you can make to move your life in a new and more satisfying direction.
I understand that it is difficult to take the first step to make an appointment. But bring in your cup of coffee; it’s time for you and I to talk. If you have any of the above symptoms, call me today for an appointment. I look forward to meeting you!
