The fall and winter months bring with them not only shorter days and colder weather but also mood problems, increased anxiety and more stressful daily lives for many. For some, the reduced hours of sunlight during the fall and winter months can result in Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a form of depression. For others, the holiday season can lead to feelings of sadness and loss and/or can lead to increased anxiety and stress related to family and financial pressures.
But, you don’t have to just suffer through another winter and holiday season. There are a number of treatment options to help you cope better and find more enjoyment during winter months and holiday season. For example, cognitive behavioral psychotherapy (CBT) can help many people who are experiencing SAD or holiday-related stress. Additionally, light therapy can be an effective treatment for SAD. Learning new stress management and coping skills also can be an effective way to change the way you experience the change of seasons.
If you’d like to feel better and enjoy the season more, working with a psychologist may help. To find out more about our psychologists and our psychotherapy services, give us a call or complete our simple online intake form.
