Bipolar Disorder Therapy in Columbus, OH—Therapists and Counselors

Two extreme mood stages are what make up Bipolar Disorder, also sometimes called Bipolar Depression. Bipolar Disorder can be a terrifying and confusing disorder if not addressed. The dramatic mood-shifts that give it its name can have extreme financial and health implications.

As scary as all this may be, it is more than possible to live with Bipolar and still have a happy, fulfilling life. Thriveworks Columbus bipolar disorder therapists understand the pressure Bipolar can put on your life, and how much you want to be free of it. Together, we can work out a strategy so you remain in control of your life. If you are ready to schedule an appointment, give us a call at (614) 515-6291.

What Is Bipolar Disorder?

People with Bipolar Disorder will undergo two distinct mood phases: a depressive phase and a manic phase. A depressive phase is a spout of depression. A manic phase can come on suddenly; you might be full of energy, be pursuing multiple different activities, and make fraught financial decisions.

Manic Episodes

The manic episode is the tell-tale sign of Bipolar. Some of the symptoms of a manic phase include:

  • A frenetically high state of mind that may be either jubilant or irritated.
  • Accelerated thinking that will not settle.
  • A significant reduction in one’s need for sleep or rest.
  • Unfocused attention.
  • Obsessive and furious planning toward a goal.
  • Talkativeness especially as compared to an individual’s normal speech patterns.
  • Self-aggrandizement and inflated self-esteem.
  • Risky or harmful behavior.
  • Hallucinations.

The abrupt and drastic changes of a manic episode can be terrifying and anxiety-inducing. With the right medication and treatment plan, though, it is manageable and maybe even avoidable. Thriveworks is here to be a guide in the murky world of treatment plans. We will support and encourage you until we find a good fit. You are always the main focus of a counseling session, and we will keep your goals and lifestyle in mind as we construct a treatment plan.

Depressive Episodes

A manic episode is only half of Bipolar. The depression stage is often longer lasting and equally, if not more, devastating. Similar to a depressive episode, symptoms include:

  • Powerful feelings of guilt, shame, and/or worthlessness.
  • Appetite or weight changes—either a decrease or increase.
  • Weakened endurance and energy.
  • Slowed speaking or nervous tapping.
  • Difficulty making decisions and focusing.
  • Disruptions in sleep—insomnia or hypersomnia.
  • Recurrent thoughts of suicide or death.

Nothing about depression is fun. It’s like you’re stuck in a blackhole that keeps dragging you down. Except there is a way out. Thriveworks Columbus is here fighting for you. We have the training and experience needed to help you not only survive Bipolar but thrive despite it. Our Columbus counselors strive to form a relationship with all our clients and will continue to work with you for as long as it takes.

What Does Treatment for Bipolar Disorder Look Like?

Researchers have found the right combination of medication and talk therapy works best for bipolar disorder treatment, and when combined with your strength and courage, it can be more than enough to break free from the chaotic chains of Bipolar.

Medication is a staple in most treatment plans for Bipolar. It might take a while to find the right dosage and type, but that’s what our counselors will help you with. And of course, talking to a professional is always important. It will not only help with the depressive episodes, but also enable you to work through any anxieties and doubts as they come up. It can make managing your medication a smoother transition and build healthy habits that will take you beyond what you thought was possible after a Bipolar Disorder diagnosis.

I recently started utilizing Thriveworks and my counselor is amazing! I have seen a few therapists over the years, but she is the first that I feel has real tools that work for me. I am an overly analytical person, and she has introduced me to so many new ways to think about various problems, new and old, that have given me a fresh perspective. Today was the second day in my short time here that I left with that "mind blown" feeling, and today I couldn’t believe the positive feelings I had on these new approaches she provided me. Also, which is the best part of course, the office is so peaceful and calming, the staff are all incredible, and just walking in the door makes me de-stress quite a bit. I definitely recommend giving Thriveworks a shot if you are looking for a welcoming place! Go Buckeyes!
