LIFE WEIGHING YOU DOWN?
Adult Psychiatrist for Adults & Parenting Adults
Life in your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s can bring multiple challenges of sustaining a strong social network, with friends and partners, career, financial stability, parenting children as they mature and for some, also caring for one’s own parents. Separation, divorce, illness as well as prior experiences of trauma will add further stress. Coping with these multiple needs can be overwhelming and contribute to increasing levels of anxiety and vulnerability to changes in mood.
What Adults & Parents Need
Prioritizing and planning an approach to multiple and frequently co-occurring demands is central to self care and deepening of one’s resiliency. Establishing a treatment plan requires a joint understanding of current and historical demands, exploring your current and previous success in managing prior situations before treatment options can be discussed.
Parenting/mentoring children of all ages also bring new challenges that can benefit from further understanding and guidance. Treatment options can include parent guidance, most successful when all primary parents are present, parent – child sessions; referral to a couples therapist or family therapist is also considered.
