Counseling for Individuals
Individual therapy can help you deal with the following:
Feeling anxious and fearful, or having panic attacks can be debilitating, and not only affect your sleep, but your daily functioning and ability to concentrate.
Being depressed or in a funk can leave you with a lack of energy, motivation, sadness, crying, and in some cases suicidal, sleep disturbance, foggy thinking, loss of libido, weight loss/gain, difficulties concentrating, or feeling irritable/angry.
