Learn about what Treatments Work for all Mood Disorders

Therapists and psychologists don't have supernatural powers. We are trained to create relationships, foster safety and trust, and teach people how to help themselves. We are also trained to interpret and utilize research - something you can do, too. Research has been done to determine what interventions and strategies are most effective for childhood anxiety treatment, treatment of bipolar disorder in children, and treatment of anxiety and depression in adults. Through this website, I will share some of what I have learned about the treatment of these conditions.  I created this website for my clients and for others who want information about how to best help themselves and their children.

Whether you are seeking information or treatment for child bipolar disorder or childhood anxiety, or help with your own depression or anxiety, this website can help to answer many of your questions.

Child Anxiety Questions

Are you worried that your child has anxiety? In this website you will find that childhood anxiety is one of the most commonly and successfully treated of all childhood diagnoses. This website will help you to identify kinds of anxiety in your child, learn about medication for child anxiety , and understand where anxiety comes from. It will also help you to learn what kind of childhood anxiety treatment and parenting techniques are helpful for child social phobia, separation anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder, and panic disorder.


Obsessive Compulsive Disorder(OCD) is a unique and debilitating form of anxiety that requires a special form of childhood anxiety treatment called ERP (Exposure and Response Prevention).  In these pages, you will find information about signs of OCD and details about an OCD diagnosis as well as what some of the effects of ocd may be on your child and family.

Childhood Bipolar Disorder

While childhood anxiety treatments have been studied much and the results well documented, the same cannot be said of childhood bipolar disorder.  As a result of my work with bipolar disorder in children, I fully understand the challenges my clients face when seeking help for this disorder.   Parents often have difficulty getting an accurate diagnosis and understanding the different symptoms in toddlers and in children.  Once an accurate diagnosis is given, parents oftentimes struggle with acceptance of this condition in their children and dealing with its impact on their lives.

It is often difficult and frustrating for parents to get the information and professional help they need to make decisions that are in the best interest of their child when it comes to Childhood Bipolar Disorder and Depression. Poor treatment advice, uncompassionate providers, and inappropriate or even harmful treatment plans and medications can have devastating effects on families seeking help. Special techniques are required to parent your bipolar child or your bipolar teen. Professionals often tell parents they are doing something wrong and that is why their child is sick!  They may even misdiagnosis your teen with borderline personality disorder, especially if they are cutting themselves.

Sometimes, children suffering from Childhood Bipolar Disorder may not be able to be educated in a public school setting and parents may need help deciding whether to home school your child.  You may be unhappy with the medications suggested by your child's doctor and wonder if there are natural remedies for bipolar disorder in children or ways you can modify your child's diet to help with bipolar disorder. Perhaps you are interested in learning about why children and adolescents with bipolar disorder are so creative

Bipolar disorder in children is an illness that requires a high level of professional support and the collaboration of treatment providers that the patient and their family can trust. This disorder also often requires many medication trials that must be monitored carefully. As with any mental health issue, the more you learn about the disorder, the better equipped you will be able to advocate for yourself or your child.


In these pages, you will also find information on child depression, adult depression and depression in teens.
