Difficult life situations can lead individuals to feel sad, lonely, angry, or just downright stressed. All of these feelings are normal reactions to life's stressors, and many people feel low and sad at times. Individuals that are diagnosed with Depression have these feelings that are more severe and persist for long periods of time. 

Depression occurs more often in women than in men, and it has been found that symptoms of depression manifest differently dependent on age and sex. Women exhibit behaviors of guilt, sadness, and worthlessness. Men exhibit behaviors revolving around tiredness, irritability, and anger. Many men may not realize they are symptoms of depression and tend to act out recklessly and abuse drugs or alcohol. Children can be fearful of losing their parents, begin doing poorly in school, and can develop into substance abuse or eating disorders as they get older. 

There are many types of depression, each with its own unique set of symptoms. If you believe that you may be experiencing symptoms of depression, please contact my office to set an appointment. Don't wait, call today!

Depression Symptoms

 Psycho-Physiological Biofeedback: 
What is it & how can it help?

Biofeedback is biological feedback of the physiological components in the body such as heart rate, pulse, brain-waves, breathing, skin moisture, and skin temperature using a machine to measure these responses to stress.

The easiest to measure and learn to self-control is skin temperature. The calmer the person, the warmer the hands, which means the brain is also calmer and then it's easier to stop and think.  Which means: the calmer the brain, the easier it is to control stress and the reaction to stressors.

If a person learns to be stressed, that person can learn to control stress and how they respond to stressful situations.
