Mood Disorders

Changes in moods that interfere with everyday life may indicate a mood disorder such as depression or bipolar disorder. Many factors can cause mood disorders such as imbalance of brain chemicals, life events and genetics. With appropriate diagnosis, treatment and support, most people struggling with mood disorders do get better and live healthy, fulfilling lives.

Asma helps clients struggling with mood disorders to learn to recognize distorted or self- defeating thought patterns, and then actively work to replace them with healthier beliefs. Trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and interpersonal therapy (IPT), Asma uses these skills in teaching clients how to identify, challenge and re-frame flawed thoughts as well as behavior patterns.
