What is Seasonal Affective Disorder?

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that occurs at a specific time of year, typically during the fall and winter months. SAD is thought to be related to changes in sunlight exposure, which can lead to disruptions in mood regulation. The impact of SAD can vary, with some individuals experiencing mild symptoms and others facing more severe challenges that significantly affect their daily functioning.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Headlight for?

Headlight is for everyone. Taking care of your mental health is a sign of strength, and choosing to better oneself is an empowering decision. We provide mental health services to those seeking a bright path forward.

What is therapy?

Therapy offers a safe and confidential space for individuals to explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. During therapy sessions, your Headlight therapist will actively listen and provide guidance and insights to help you better understand yourself, your relationships, and your challenges. Talk therapy can address a variety of mental health concerns, from anxiety and depression to trauma and relationship issues. Headlight’s clinicians are experienced in various therapeutic approaches and techniques and offer in-person or virtual sessions.

What is the difference between therapy and psychiatry?

Therapy, often provided by psychologists, social workers, or counselors, involves talking through emotional and psychological challenges to gain insight and develop coping strategies. Whereas, psychiatry, typically led by medical doctors, focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of mental health issues using medication alongside therapy when necessary. While therapy emphasizes conversation and behavioral strategies, psychiatry integrates medication management to address biochemical imbalances in mental health conditions.

Why is it so important to find the right therapist?

Finding the right therapist is so important as it establishes a foundation of trust, creating a safe space for open communication. A well-matched therapist can better understand your individual needs, ensuring personalized support and enhancing the effectiveness of the therapeutic process.
