Therapy for Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is characterized by alternating symptoms of depression and mania. During more extreme episodes, depression may lead to the point of suicidal ideation and attempts while extreme bouts of mania are marked by impulsive behavior, lack of sleep, elevated esteem, and even psychosis. Working with a therapist who specializes in bipolar disorder may reduce symptom frequency and severity and lead to a better quality of life.
