Depression Counseling and Bipolar Counseling

Some general community screenings for depression, done by mental health professionals at health fairs and other public events, have indicated that close to half the American population meet the criteria for this disorder at given times.  There are effective forms of bipolar depression treatment, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).  I use a CBT curriculum that I’ve put together from many sources over the past ten years and most of my clients don’t even have to complete the whole program before they are doing much better and are ready to be done with depression counseling and bipolar counseling. 

Bipolar Disorder, previously referred to as Manic Depression, is a condition which includes major shifts in mood.  There are usually periods when you experience symptoms of depression and other times when you experience symptoms of euphoria and grandiosity or symptoms of extreme irritability.  These shifts may occur over long periods of time, like months or years, or they may occur rapidly, sometimes even in the course of one day.
