Stress and Anxiety Management

Depression

Dr. Crawshaw can treat various forms of depression including mild to severe cases. Sometimes Depression can sneak up on you and resemble more of a numbing of feelings rather than a sense of sadness. Or maybe for you, a heavy sadness prevents you from getting out of bed or going about your day to the best of your ability. Dr. Crawshaw will assess whether a lifestyle or internal shift is needed to work through your depression but will also work closely with your psychiatrist if medication is a necessary option for treating your depression.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder put simply, is when a person experiences the two poles-meaning the depths of depression as well as the heights of Mania. There are levels of severity when it comes to Bipolar Disorder. Psychologists and Psychiatrists recognize this as Bipolar 1 and Bipolar 2. Dr. Crawshaw will work closely with your psychiatrist if you are challenged by Bipolar Disorder.0

Mania

For some, Depression is accompanied by a manic episode. A manic episode is a period of high energy. It may be as simple as a burst of energy and an increase in speech. It may be as complex as significant weight loss and hallucinations. If you experience mania, Dr. Crawshaw has years of experience helping people manage this issue individually and is also able to refer you to a psychiatrist for a proper medication evaluation.
