Since the release of the Netflix Original Show “13 Reasons Why,” parents, educators, and teenagers all across the nation have been raising questions and concerns about the TV shows representation of a best-selling novel. This TV show has created a viral storm across the nation, and especially for psychologists and therapists across the nation. At Lifeworks, we pride ourselves on remaining up to date with mental health issues. So, why should you come to Lifeworks for your counseling and therapy needs? We have compiled a list of 13 reasons why Lifeworks may be the right for you:
- Counseling of Anxiety and Panic Therapy
The presence of excessive anxiety and worry about a variety of topics, events, or activities can be extremely overwhelming. Sometimes you may feel worried in a mannerism that is clearly excessive. This means you worry even when there is nothing wrong or in a manner that is disproportionate to the actual risk. You may see yourself spending a many waking hours worrying about something, or maybe have feelings of anxiety or panic without any warning. At this time, it helps to seek intervention by a professional.
- Counseling for Depression
From time to time, we all feel down, or something we label as depression. Sadness is a normal reaction to life’s setbacks and disappointments. Whereas some are able to overcome these feelings, others may feel continued distress in sleep (more or less), loss of interests, guilt, lack of energy, poor concentration, appetite (more or less), psychomotor retardation, or even thoughts of suicide. If you find yourself experiencing these feelings, then contact Lifeworks today to schedule our consultation.
- Counseling and Therapy for Body Dysmorphic Disorder
Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a relatively common debilitating disorder that consists of a distressing or impairing preoccupation with imagined or slight defects in appearance. BDD is commonly considered to be an obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorder, based on similarities it has with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
