With the various Depressive Disorders and Bipolar Disorders, usually a combination of medication and individual counseling helps to decrease symptoms of Depression or manic episodes. We will work with the individual and the family to help build skills to manage emotion regulation, assess for safety and decrease risks associated with thoughts of suicide, and increase distress tolerance skills. We will also assist in the monitoring of medication for those that are taking medication. We can be in communication with the prescribing medical doctors, as needed.
