Depression & Anxiety

Depression and anxiety often go together. More than half of the people diagnosed with depression also have anxiety. Either condition can be disabling on its own. Together, depression and anxiety can be especially hard to live with, hard to diagnose, and hard to treat.

Depression and anxiety can be caused by physiological or environmental factors. I will help you determine the likely cause and the best course of treatment.
