Don’t Let Anxiety or Depression Run Your Life
Life is full of stressful events and challenges. Each person handles it differently. For some, depression or anxiety exist with a trigger. For others, there may be no obvious trigger.
In fact, anxiety and depression are two of the most common mental health conditions facing Americans.
Treatment is available that makes a difference. For example, therapy and medication together are medically proven to help many if not most people, when properly performed and prescribed. Click to read Dr. Weiss article comparing anxiety treatment and anti-anxiety medications.
Non-pharmaceutical and ancillary options can also be effective. Dr. Weiss is experienced in treatments to overcome symptoms of anxiety and depression for the short and long term.
The Myth of Happy All the Time
Social pressure to be happy all the time is unrealistic for everyone. Yet we sometimes judge ourselves harshly for not being “better” at life.
We are surrounded by pressure to be more productive, wealthier, attractive, accomplished. We might feel we are supposed to sail through something complicated and hard, like grieving.
It’s a formula for emotional struggle. Therapy is a safe place to explore life and learn ways to navigate and define what is true for you.
Be your own best friend.
Dr. Weiss works with his patients to develop techniques for self-support.
Your entire life has led to this moment. Therapy is a great way to replace self-destructive themes and their origins–so you can heal, and come to terms with what is getting in the way of experiencing life’s joys.
Dr. Weiss works with patients to replace the concept of “happiness” with the reality of life well-lived.
Options for Treatment
Therapy, and medication (if needed), are proven in many cases to be a powerful aid to overcome psychiatric roadblocks to mental health.
Other non-medication options are specific to particular symptoms or overall health for a better mind and body relationship.
A combination is sometimes the right choice.
Those decisions are best determined between the patient and Dr. Weiss.
Effective treatment is not one-size-fits-all.
