Winter Blues Ahead!
If you are like me this time change has you up bright and early and feeling like it's midnight by 6pm! Ahhhh...yawning right now at 5:45pm...
It's also the signal for the season in which two things happen: seasonal affective disorders, depression and grief are the rise as we enter into the winter months. While at the very same time, it's also the least likely time for people to start care with the holidays approaching. This can be a dangerous combination!
If you are concerned about yourself or a family member or know of anyone who has had a significant loss in relationship or a death particularly in this past year, the holiday season can be especially challenges. "The most wonderful time of the year" can also be the most painful. Right now is a great time to get started in counseling and establish a solid therapeutic relationship with a trusted clinicians to help support through the months ahead.
Every January we see huge influx of patients, but we'd love to have you start sooner rather than later so we can get you started right away and prevent or decrease symptoms in the months ahead.
