Bipolar Disorder

Being diagnosed with bipolar disorder can bring up a myriad of feelings for you, your spouse, family members and close significant others. While it's a relief to know the cause of your mood swings, the fact that you have a life-long illness is still a crushing and difficult fact to process. You might be feeling overwhelmed, confused, empty and even a bit despondent.

Prior to being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, you and those close to you sensed something 'off' but until now, no one understood the intensity and danger of your bouts of depression and/or extreme energy.

Medication alone is not enough. It is a well-researched fact that the most effective treatment for bipolar disorder is the correct drug treatment paired with psychotherapy. Therapy is equally important as your medication because you need help managing and learning to be aware of triggers that can cause you to suddenly switch moods.

I have successfully helped many people cope with being bipolar through my therapeutic skills, compassion and extensive knowledge about the disorder. I will help you with your feelings of grief, understand the addictive nature of mania, and learn how to get a grip on your triggers.
