Need more help deciding?

The stressors in daily life are hard for anyone to handle. However, while dealing with anxiety and depression, these daily stressors seem like huge hurdles to overcome. People who struggle with depression and anxiety are not alone, and there is help for those people who are struggling with these disorders. 

According to scientific research, an imbalance of specific chemicals in the brain is the primary driver of the symptoms in people affected by these conditions. Concentrations of these chemicals can be altered by external events – these external stimuli often include traumatic events and periods of extreme stress. Abuse in childhood, death of a loved one or losing one’s job are standard examples. Anxiety disorders are predominantly linked to acute stress experienced in all its multiplicity of forms. 

While medication is sometimes needed to control the symptoms of anxiety and depression, here at Thriveworks Silver Spring, we believe that our counselors have the tools needed to assist someone dealing with anxiety and depression. They will work on helping you develop the tools you need to thrive each and every day. The depression and anxiety counselors at Thriveworks Silver Spring in Montgomery County have an impressive set of skills as well as experience and are ready to help anyone struggling with anxiety or depression. 

Diagnosing Depression and Anxiety 

Depression and anxiety disorders are, first and foremost, mood disorders—that is, disorders related to human feelings and emotions. In many other fields of medicine, blood tests and physical examinations are carried out to identify the disease. This cannot be done when dealing with depression and anxiety disorders. Healthcare practitioners will primarily talk to the patient in order to formulate a diagnosis. It is very common that these individuals show no outward physical signs, despite intense and often unbearable mental obstacles they face daily. Some of the key symptoms a health professional will watch out for include: 

Anxiety: 

  • Constant worry 
  • Restlessness 
  • Lack of sleep 
  • Heart palpitations 
  • Panic attacks 

Depression: 

  • Intense emotions such as sadness and grief 
  • Unusually persistent emotions 
  • Lethargy
  • Changes in appetite/weight
  • Sleep disruptions

How Are Depression and Anxiety Treated? 

There are a number of diverse treatment options for depression and anxiety; lifestyle interventions include a better diet and more exercise, medical interventions like anti-depressants and, finally, counseling services such as those offered by Thriveworks Silver Spring, MD. 

Typically, medical and lifestyle interventions help patients to manage and reduce their symptoms, yet are not designed to tackle the underlying cause of their emotional problems. Talk-based counseling methods, on the other hand, focus on recognizing the root cause of the disorder. They aim to reduce the symptoms by directly addressing the issues surrounding the origins of the patient’s mental health difficulties.

A'Lisa made the whole required process of alcohol treatment not seem so bad. I should not have had to do it. But her approach to teaching the group made me actually look forward to coming. Her lessons could be applied as whole life lessons, not just in reference to recovery. I was actually so satisfied with her that I began individual sessions with her after program completion. Thanks so much for this experience.
