Patient Portraits

MichelleIsolated and Depressed

Michelle is a middle aged woman, widowed for 18 months. She ceased working, feeling she had neither the energy nor the will to continue. During Covid she was very careful to self-isolate for the entire pre-vaccination period. Living alone, her emotional energy and initiative declined. In her depression, her view of the future became bleaker.

She regularly saw a psychiatrist and psychotherapist, but she needed more. She approached IOP with skepticism, but over time, she gradually revealed more about herself during group sessions. To her surprise, this resulted in a gradual lifting of mood and brightening of outlook.

She now readily admits that the group experience has been unexpectedly interesting and stimulating. She has continued to expand social interactions. Her view of future options include a measure of contentment and happiness.

JohnManic then the Crash

John is 42 and an accomplished professional. He had a normal early life and was not exposed to unusual hardship, trauma, or deprivation.

His career is demanding and during a surge in work demands he became uptight and sleep-fragmented. He then entered a full blown manic episode, with grandiose thinking, reckless publicly visible behavior, reputational damage. He was stabilized by a highly capable psychiatrist and required a short hospital stay.

He entered IOP embarrassed, ashamed, professionally lost, and quite pessimistic. He was deeply concerned his career was ruined.

So why does someone with a strongly biologically driven condition need therapy? To glue his life back together. He worked hard. Soaked up encouragement, support, camaraderie, realistic thinking, and picked himself up most effectively. He has since returned to his career.

GraceGnawing Pain

Grace is 38. She has struggled with mild persistent depression for roughly 10 years. Treatment of this condition was intermittent and did not accomplish full recovery from the mood disorder.

As her adjustment began to falter, she turned to increasing consumption of alcohol. This worsened her overall adjustment. In crisis she entered a residential treatment program and achieved sobriety.

She was referred to IOP by the residential program. Once enrolled, she engaged promptly. She has since gained a much clearer understanding of her several problem areas and the ways they interact and are interlocked. Her overall adjustment has improved substantially.

JalenUnexpected Spiraling

Jalen is 20 years old and enters IOP with a complaint of depression.

Outward Manifestations: His GPA in undergraduate work is declining, when previously he was performing well. He fails to attend class half of the time. Engagement with friends is faltering. Sleep, appetite, concentration are unchanged. He wonders whether life is worth the trouble.
Inward Manifestation: He says he feels like a complete loser.

In IOP he gradually explores his earlier life where his father berated him constantly and his mother stood by passively. The group is highly supportive and recognizes his multiple areas of competence.

Outward Progress: He exits IOP more confident and less avoidant. He’s ready to resume and complete his education. He’s more hopeful about the future and the value/purpose of his life.
Inward Progress: He’s less self deprecating, more realistic, and more confortable.

Why do I feel so awful?

Will I ever feel better?

WE CAN HELP


At IOP Services, we provide supplemental, intensive care. That means, we don’t want you to stop seeing your regular therapist or psychiatrist. In fact, we recommend clinicians to patients without one.

We’re here for reinforcement. We help individuals suffering from serious pain or mental health disorders receive the extra care they need, without substantial disruptions to their lives.
