Mood Dysregulation

Mood Dysregulation

Have you ever been told that you often overreact?

Has anyone avoided telling you something because they thought you’d get “too upset?”

Anger, sadness, frustration, and irritability are all normal, expected responses to stress. They are also part of the human experience, in the same way that joy, excitement, and contentment are.

However, when we have a poor ability to manage these expected emotional responses or keep them within an acceptable range of typical responses, we are experiencing emotion dysregulation.
Many factors in our lives can contribute to emotion dysregulation such as: our biology and genetics, mental health diagnoses (Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, Anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorder), behaviors learned from people around us, and traumatic experiences.

Anxiety

Do you have anxiety?

There is rarely just one solution to something so complex as human emotion!

Emotion dysregulation feels confusing and awful for the person experiencing it. It can be equally confusing and frightening for the people around them. Starting therapy and taking responsibility for your emotions and behaviors is a courageous, smart, first step.
With therapy you will gain new knowledge and put that knowledge into practice, which in turn will improve your relationship others. And you will feel better about yourself.

Anxiety 2

Here’s what to expect when you work with us:

Free Phone Consult:

At Bricolage, we extend a free 15-minute phone consultation to make sure we are a good fit to work together. We will discuss what your goals are, explain what therapy will look like, and how your life will be different after working with us. By the end of this call, you will have
a clear idea of your next steps.

Initial Session:

Your first meeting with your therapist will be between 60 and 70 minutes and will allow the two of you to begin to build a relationship.
You will go over the information you provided before this initial session as well as dive into all of the elements of your story. Throughout
this appointment, you and your therapist will work as a team to create your action plan.

Weekly Sessions:

Once you and your therapist begin to work deeply together, you will experience a type of treatment that has been completely tailored
to you and your needs. Your therapist will take keen notice of where you are in your maternal mental health journey and ensure that the exercises you complete in session will bring you a sense of comfort and peace as you move forward.

Completion of Goals

As a team, you and your therapist will continue to evaluate your progress and growth. Eventually, the two of you will recognize that you
are responding to stressors more effectively and that weekly therapy might no longer be necessary. At this point you can choose to come to session less often and together you will decide what level of support you need for the future.

Our team of compassionate professionals will help you tap into the strengths you already possess and guide you to stop looking for the “if” and start taking advantage of the NOW.
