DEPRESSION & MOOD DISORDERS
Children and adolescents with mood disorders can experience a variety of symptoms including persistent feelings of sadness, irritability or explosive anger, and impulsive decision-making, which can be debilitating and disruptive to their lives as well as to the functioning of their families. Leaving these disorders untreated can lead to unnecessary suffering.
An intake evaluation will be completed which will include a school and medical records review, a developmental history interview with the parents and an interview with the child. After providing feedback to the parents and child a treatment plan will be created to best meet the needs of each family. Treatment involves a combination of CBT and Mindfulness based therapy.
