Bipolar Disorder: At CriticalPath Counseling we use only evidence based strategies to treat Bipolar Disorder, a disorder characterized by mood instability and frequent mood changes, difficulty in decision making and judgment, and impulsivity.
Bipolar Disorder is often misdiagnosed and so we carefully help clients sift through their current symptoms, previous psychological history, and former treatment in order to get a clear picture of what is going on.
Best practices in treating Bipolar Disorder include Cognitive Behavior Therapy and medication and so if a client is not currently working with a reputable psychiatrist in the area we will often refer clients to trusted providers.
At CriticalPath Counseling we emphasize Dialectical Behavioral Therapy as a frontline treatment for Bipolar Disorder. We teach clients how to identify problem sequences of behavior that result from mood shifts and give them tools, strategies and techniques to manage themselves better, achieve goals, and live their best life.
In addition, we teach clients the most cutting edge mindfulness techniques to help them accept and be compassionate toward themselves, all of which has its basis in the latest research for treating Bipolar Disorder coming out of major universities such as Stanford University.
