Anxiety & Depression is more common than you may think
Statistics show that one in four Americans have experienced anxiety or depression at some point in their life. These symptoms are much more common than a person may think. Depression and anxiety can vary from mild to severe with various combinations of symptoms. Many people wait until these symptoms have impacted their life before seeking out support. Our therapists are here to help at any point in a person’s journey with anxiety and depression.

- Being easily fatigued
- Difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank
- Muscle tension
- Difficulty controlling the worry
- Sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep)
Symptoms of depression may include*:
