General Symptoms

Adjustment/Trauma/Grief

Bringing clarity to the process of the "Fight, Flight, Freeze", "D.A.B.D.A.", PTSD, and Maladjustment. 

  

Adjusting to a dramatic change in life can require professional assistance when that adjustment period disrupts normal function. Grieving the loss of a loved one, an unexpected relocation due to work, an unexpected change in identity are all precursors or "triggers" I have worked with in my office treatment. 

Uncontrolled crying, physically ill, shaking, tremors, twitching, hesitation to start an activity, stomach pains, school or work avoidance are all symptoms that have had a positive resolution in my office.

Denial

Anger

Bargaining

Depression

Acceptance

Mood Disorders

  • Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar, Adjustment, Seasonal Affective, etc.
  • Healthy Anxiety should not be disruptive to productivity. Sleeping all day is only healthy if you work or stay up all night. 
  • If you feel too depressed to move, too anxious to accomplish your goals, still fear something that has no reasonable ability to influence you or feel exceptionally low during certain seasons of the year it may be normal or an aspect of your life that can be changed for the positive. 
  • If your symptoms are beyond my ability to reasonably treat, an immediate referral with follow up will be made.
  • As always, please utilize the prescribed safety plan. Utilize the local county crisis line. Links accurate as of 4/2/18   -Allegheny County Crisis-   -Butler County Crisis
  • For a mental health emergency, it is imperative that you utilize the nearest emergency room, dial 911, or social support network.
  • A depressed - traumatized - starved brain is not healthy and has not conceived every available option when it comes to avoiding self-harm.

Engaging in Therapy/Counseling/Psychotherapy with intent to reduce the perception of Burnout will reduce numerous symptoms of burnout.  A non-exhaustive list of possible symptoms of work burnout include: irritability, fatigue, sleeplessness, Sunday blues, depression, anxiety, aversion to work, lowered productivity, and low motivation.
