Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety and Depression are both emotional disorders that you may suffer at any time in your life, but symptoms of both disorders can be exacerbated if you are experiencing discord in your relationship. It is important to sort out if your dissatisfaction and hopelessness are due to underlying emotional conflicts, a chronic disorder which presented early in life such as Generalized Anxiety or Depressive Disorder, or if these are mostly a result of the ongoing discord in your relationship. During the Consultation appointment, much attention will be given to this question, so as to develop a treatment plan suitable to your needs. If the anxiety and/or depression are particularly severe and disabling, individual treatment may be indicated before Couples Therapy can begin.
