What Are Anxiety, Depression, and Bipolar treatment?

At Blue Elk Family Clinic, we understand how life's challenges can often seem overwhelming, relationships can feel unfulfilling or even unhealthy, and mood swings and stress can seem to come out of nowhere. When feelings of sadness and distress have become part of your life, it may be helpful to seek out a licensed mental health counselor for professional support. Depression is a feeling of deep, overwhelming sadness or despondency. Anxiety is a feeling of agitation or distress that negatively impacts your ability to feel settled, calm, or focused, often shutting out other emotions. These can be the result of a chemical imbalance, life circumstances, or a combination. Misty Sanchez, LMHC-A diagnoses and treats these conditions, along with bipolar disorder, which involves a personality that can involve depression and manic, out-of-control tendencies, or a vacillation between the two, sometimes also presenting with psychosis symptoms, like visions or delusional thinking. These conditions are very serious but can be treated with the help of expert mental health professionals, like Misty, who can be reached at our Nashville, IN location.
