Some of the negative symptoms are sleep disturbances, anger, depression and disorientation, and a trained professional can help you determine a treatment plan. If you aren’t feeling like yourself, it’s time to get in touch with someone who understands.
Depending on the severity of your life changes disorder, your therapist will determine the correct treatment plan. A therapist will support you through your negative feelings, pinpoint areas in your life that you may wish to change, help you set realistic goals, and give you tools to identify and prevent future bouts of anxiety and depression. Your therapist will custom-tailor your sessions to what you need at that moment.
