Depression and Anxiety

Conditions Treated

Depression and Anxiety

While everyone experiences the blues or feels anxious on occasion, more persistent anxiety or feelings of depression can be a sign of a mental health concern or disorder. Mind and Body’s specialty trained therapists offer treatment for depression and anxiety in Reno.

Sometimes a major life change triggers one of these conditions, such as work burnout, family and relationship problems, or the death of a loved one. But science shows us that other factors can weigh in, including genetics, pain, or trauma. Understanding not only the why but the how is one example of what sets our therapists apart, and how we work with you to understand the complex layers we all carry. We strive to offer you more than temporary relief; we work to help you develop skills to better manage your symptoms now and in the years to come.

Depression and Anxiety

Depression

Feelings of depression that last more than two weeks may be a sign of a mood disorder, such as major depressive disorder, and should be addressed as soon as possible.

Some of the most common symptoms of depression include:

  • Feeling hopeless

  • Anger and irritability
  • Lack of energy and/or focus
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Change in appetite
  • Chronic pain or gastrointestinal concerns
  • Thoughts of suicide

Anxiety

Experiencing persistent or extreme anxiety on most days may be a sign of an anxiety disorder, and will also benefit from therapy and counseling from specialty trained therapists.

Common symptoms of an anxiety disorder include:

  • Trouble managing fear and worry
  • Irritability and restlessness
  • A sense of dread or panic
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Ongoing fatigue
  • Brain fog
  • Physical symptoms like headaches, muscle tension, nausea, and diarrhea

Overlapping Symptoms

You’ll notice that the symptoms can overlap, and sometimes anxiety and depression occur together, where anxiety acts as a symptom of depression. Similarly, people commonly experience depression as a result of an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and panic disorder. Not surprisingly, treatment for both conditions are similar and can effectively work in tandem.

As you may already know, each condition can have an adverse affect on your mental, physical and emotional health, work, relationships and daily responsibilities. The sooner you seek out help, the sooner you can return to a more positive, healthier, and happier state of mind.

Mind and Body will work with you to determine if you are experiencing an anxiety disorder, depression, or both. Therapy is a proven tool for treating both, and your specialized therapist may incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy, mindfulness techniques, or other effective approaches for treatment.

Using proven tools including psychotherapy, counseling, and progressive treatments such as EMDR and psychedelic therapy, Mind & Body will work with you on a comprehensive, individualized plan for depression, anxiety, or both.
