Bipolar Disorder therapists in Santa Clarita, California CA
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
To be clear, bipolar disorder is not just having simple mood swings. This is a biochemical condition through which people experience severe highs and lows. Medication is key to keeping stable. Still, psychotherapy can play an incredibly important role, too. People living with bipolar disorder often experience serious lows, during which it can be hard to carry on with their normal lives and routines. I have worked with many clients with this illness using all different kinds of evidence-based practices to improve their daily functioning and get through the tough times. We will also try to find ways to reduce stress in your life, as stress has been suggested to trigger cycling between mania and depression.

17 Years Experience
Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
Having a close family member who was diagnosed as Bipolar when they were 14 was my introduction to the field of therapy and is one of the main reasons I became a therapist. Thus, I have extensive personal and professional knowledge in this area. It should be noted that Bipolar Disorder is one the most common diagnosis that is often wrong! I have had many clients come in stating they have been diagnosed as suffering from Bipolar Disorder but they don't meet the diagnostic criteria. Thus, this has been a popular catch all within the field when something else is really at the heart of the matter. The work here includes teaming with a psychiatrist to ensure proper diagnosis and medication while dealing with negative thoughts that help feed the depressive aspect of the cycle of depression and mania, or depression and hypomania (Bipolar II).
