                                Services for Adults

Depression and Anxiety:
Psychological services for adults include
therapy for the treatment of mood disorders such as depression, as well
as anxiety disorders.  According to the Journal of the American Medical
Association, 1 out of every 6 adults will experience a major depressive
episode sometime during their life (Kessler et al., 2003).  A similar number
of adults will also experience an anxiety disorder, according to the National
Institute of Mental Health.   Anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety
disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and obsessive-compulsive
disorder, among others.   Research has shown that psychotherapy for
mood and anxiety disorders is effective at reducing symptoms and
preventing future occurrences.  

Relationship Problems: Services for adults also include therapy for
dealing with difficult relationship problems.  Life’s most difficult challenges
typically include navigating through conflict-laden relationships.  Many
times, individuals will notice similarities and patterns from one relationship
to the next that they want to begin addressing in treatment.  Working
through these difficulties with an experienced psychologist can help to
create healthier and more effective relationships that provide the personal
enrichment that only close relationships with others can bring.

Workplace Stress:  The modern workplace is more stressful than ever.  
A recent national survey found that "The vast majority of American
workers say they are stressed, more than a third say that their job is
harming their physical or emotional well-being, 42% say job pressures are
interfering with their family or personal lives, and half report more
demanding workloads than they had a year ago."  Often, overwhelming
workplace difficulties can lead to heightened states of anxiety and
depression, with symptoms such as difficulty sleeping, increased or
decreased appetite, and decreased motivation to engage in enjoyable
activities.  Finding healthy ways to adapt to such stress, or finding ways to
reduce or eliminate stressors if possible can be an important task to work
on with a psychologist to reduce stress-related symptoms and improve
one’s quality of life.
