Everyone thinks you’re doing great.
You nailed that project, and your performance review was far better than expected. You even signed up for that class you’ve been wanting to take on the side.
What they don’t see are the late nights spent thinking, rehashing, worrying, tossing, and turning. You’re exhausted from burning the candle at both ends. All you want to do is curl up under a blanket and hide away from the world.
It’s invisible to everyone else, so they don’t understand. So, you put on a brave face and keep going at full speed.
But inside, you feel like everything’s falling apart.
“Is treatment really necessary?”
Sometimes, you wonder if you’re just overreacting.
You know that mental health struggles are real, but you’re not sure if how you’re feeling is just part of life or actually a problem.
Meanwhile, it constantly feels like you’re not doing enough. Fatigue gets the best of you, and Netflix wins out at the end of the day.
You beat yourself up for being unable to snap out of it, making everything more difficult.
Anxiety and depression often co-exist.
It’s sometimes hard to tease out anxiety from depression because they can overlap.
Irritability, problems concentrating, sleep issues, fatigue, aches and pains, changes in appetite, and intrusive thoughts can happen with either anxiety or depression.
The root causes and symptoms can also be very similar. Work, financial, and family stressors and social issues may play a role… as can nutritional deficiencies, medical problems, and other biological factors.
The truth is that it’s normal to feel worried, nervous, down, or sad sometimes. That’s how our brains process experiences. But sometimes, those feelings make daily life like a Herculean task.
You don’t have to wait until symptoms are severe before seeking help. Being proactive can help you get ahead of things so you can spend less energy worrying and more energy on the things you care about.
We’re here to help.
Anxiety and depression are the most common reasons people come to us for help.
Anxiety and depression can make you feel like your mind is your enemy. Really, though, your mind is more like an instrument.
Think of it like a violin. If you don’t know how to play it, the sounds will be disorganized and screeching. But with the right coaching, technique, and practice, you can learn to unlock the instrument’s potential and create music.
At Pacific Integrative Psychiatry, we’re all about practical solutions.
When you work with us, you’ll get the tools to understand your anxiety and depression. You’ll learn to navigate your mind, thoughts, and emotions to unlock your potential.
These tools involve biological, psychological, social, and environmental interventions to reduce the intensity of symptoms – now and in the long run.
We’ll also help you determine if medications or non-medicinal options like nutrition, supplements, mind-body practices, and psychotherapy would be helpful.
You’re ready to take that next step!
Our patients tell us that they’re better able to navigate triggering personal situations, regulate their nervous system, and use the tools they got in therapy to improve their performance at work and in their businesses.
Our practitioners are available throughout California via our secure telemedicine platform.
