Therapy for Depression and Anxiety Near Me

When it comes to anxiety and depression, it’s important that the treatment of both illnesses, mental and physical, are rooted in a particular diagnosis given by an adequately trained healthcare professional. For those who have been given a dual diagnosis, it is equally as important that they are given a unique treatment plan designed to help them manage and reduce their overall symptoms. 

Anxiety & Depression Treatment Theory

While in many cases depression and anxiety have similar treatment approaches, a licensed therapist will decide if both should be treated simultaneously. Your therapist could use specific methods that address and reduce not only symptoms of anxiety, but also symptoms of depression at the same time. Some individuals, however, may find that one or the other diagnosis is leading to more negative symptoms. Whichever issue has the most symptoms should be treated first, whether that’s through therapy for depression, or therapy for anxiety. 

Even qualified mental health professionals sometimes struggle to decide which set of symptoms - related to anxiety or depression - should be treated first. If you’ve been diagnosed with anxiety and depression, it is most likely that you’ll receive treatment for both at the same time. 

Anxiety & Depression Treatment and Success Rates

These days there are many different types of medications and therapeutic approaches that have been proven to be highly effective in treating a wide range of individuals for both anxiety and depression. Here in America, more than 10% of our population takes selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs: they are, in fact, the most popular medications taken by people between the ages of 18 and 24. 

These medications are often administered as complements to psychotherapy. A very common psychotherapeutic approach to treating depression and anxiety is cognitive behavioral therapy. The goal of cognitive behavioral therapy is for therapists to help their patients replace their potentially maladaptive and negative thought and behavioral patterns with ones that are more useful, positive, and better grounded in reality.
