Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in San Diego, CA
Depression is a debilitating disorder, with common symptoms of depressed mood, lack of motivation, loss of pleasure in activities and hobbies, changes in appetite, sleep disturbances, feelings of guilt, and difficulty concentrating. However, depression in men often gets overlooked or misdiagnosed because the symptoms can include extreme irritability and anger outbursts. Men often self-medicate with distraction such as excessive work, video games, or substance use.
Sleep disturbance can happen in early sleep hours, middle sleep, or late sleep/early morning awakening. If you are struggling with this issue, or have a loved one that is suffering from the results of poor sleep, then you understand the impact that sleep disorders can have on your life. Whether this will be your first appointment with a professional to resolve insomnia or you are reaching out after many unsuccessful attempts with other types of treatment, I encourage you to contact me.
