So many people struggle with the idea of seeking outside help for their mental well-being. It’s not difficult to understand why; for far too long there has been a stigma surrounding mental health. Those who suffer often do so in silence for fear of ridicule or embarrassment, as though seeking self-care is something to be ashamed of.
Support, guidance, personal growth; a positive outlet and a means to set and discuss goals; a place where you can be open and honest about your personal challenges and feel comfortable in your skin. These are all the things that one-on-one therapy sessions in Katonah, NY with Dr. Jonah Schrag can afford you – none of which you should ever feel shame over.
Why Should I See A Therapist?
At one point or another, we’ve all been in a place where we feel like the bad outweighs the good. For some, this can be just another roll of the tide, easily worked out on its own with a bit of time. For others, it’s more like quicksand. The bad days and the daily obstacles just seem to get worse with no positive outcome in sight. If you can relate, you know the struggles you face are bigger than yourself. Regular meeting with a therapist can provide you with the support you need and a clear path towards a more fulfilling life.
What Can Individual Therapy Help With?
Dr. Schrag specializes in individual therapy for various challenges including, but not limited to:
- Managing Anxiety
- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
- Dealing and Coping with Depression
- Anger Management
Anxiety Therapy Services
Depending on what may be going on in your life, some level of anxiety is completely normal. What isn’t is the out-of-nowhere sense of dread that those struggling with severe anxiety feel. Fortunately, working with a therapist can help you diagnose your anxiety and work through it, so it doesn’t have a debilitating effect on your daily life.
Anger Management Therapy
Anger is a powerful emotion felt by everyone, and when channeled appropriately, anger can be beneficial. However, at what point does anger become more than just a common emotion? For those who struggle with anger management, it can be difficult to put a lid on that feeling and control it before it becomes damaging to you and those around you. Through individual therapy sessions with Dr. Schrag, you can get a better understanding of what triggers your anger, why it’s a problem, and how to manage it.
Dealing and Coping with Depression
In addition to anxiety, depression is one of the most common conditions people think of when they think about therapy. What isn’t common is how each individual experiences and processes depression, making individual therapy sessions the most beneficial option for all.
