When you’re struggling to maintain a positive mood because of bipolar disorder, it’s not unusual to feel frustrated and out of control.
You worry that you’ll never be able to have a fulfilling life that is full of purpose – or that you won’t be able to alleviate the anxiety and/or depression that come with the “ups” and downs” of bipolar.
You’re not alone! That’s how many of my clients feel.
During my six years of experience working with clients with bipolar disorder and their family members, I’ve discovered a blueprint for managing bipolar that includes:
- Improving your physical health through nutrition and physical activity.
Promoting restorative sleep habits.
Developing deep relaxation practices.
Increasing the amount of enjoyable activities you participate in every day.
Cultivating healthy and supportive relationships with friends and family members.
Restructuring your brain chemistry through use of daily skills practices.
Building strengths and hope, and reducing vulnerabilities to stress.
This blueprint helps you manage the bipolar disorder (rather than having the bipolar manage YOU).
I also work with the spouses and other family members of people who have bipolar. I work with people either individually, or in couples and family therapy, to help them learn how best to help their loved one and understand the disorder.
During therapy, I work as a guide to help you find your best possible combination of productive skill sets, so you can have a life that is balanced, well rounded, and enjoyable.
You can build a high quality life, and you can reach your goals and dreams for the future – and I can help you get there.
