We Treat most Psychiatric Related Conditions

Our Psychologists and Psychiatrists treat a variety of conditions for people of all walks of life. Others have seen their professional or academic life suffer from difficulties with concentration, attention, and/or disorganization. Many are facing a particular crossroads and seek support and guidance to determine the best course of action. Still others are unable to articulate exactly what is wrong, but feel that “something” is missing in their life and/or relationships.

Our Approach

 

Our Psychologists  implement methodologies including person-centered psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among patients.

This encourage them to adopt new attitude and more optimistic feelings towards life situations. While Psychotherapy works, it is very important to keep in mind that Psychotherapy is not a magic pill. It is not a quick fix. Therapy is a healing process that requires participation and investment among the patients and their caretakers.

In the end, it’s the patient’s choice to make small changes to get over self-defeating behavior, and coping with feelings of sadness, fear and pain. When this is done, the therapy sessions with our Psychologists can bring life-altering results.

Below is a sample of the some of the conditions we treat. Please note that many who benefit from psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, neuropsychological testing, or all three do not fall into any discrete category or diagnosis. If you have questions about whether you are suited for or might benefit from our services, please contact our very accommodating staff and clinicians.

Anxiety

Anxiety is the tense feeling that one experiences while worrying about bad things that have happened or might happen in the future. Although all of us have worried unnecessarily, everyday worry can evolve into fear and dread. When this occurs, psychiatric attention is needed. Anxiety can take a generalized, pervasive form, or it can occur as a rush caused by an identifiable or imagined stressor. The later is often referred to as a “panic attack.”

Regardless of the symptoms, anxiety can seriously undermine an individual’s quality of life and impede personal and professional success. Fortunately, over time, individuals can learn to manage even severe anxiety with a combination of improved coping skills, psychotherapy, and, when necessary, medication.

Depression
Sadness is a common and often legitimate reaction to many life events. However, when “the blues” become overwhelming and make it hard to feel joy, a diagnosis of depression may be warranted. Depression often affects sleeping and eating habits, and can lead to low energy, motivation, and social isolation.  By utilizing a personalized approach, we will work together to improve your mood and help you develop more flexible strategies to manage challenges and negative life events.
If you think you might have depression, you may be unsure what to do or where to begin. While, one may easily label themselves as depressed, it is important to know the symptoms of clinical depression. These symptoms may include:
  • loss of appetite
  • Constant feeling of sadness
  • Hopelessness
  • Guilt
  • feeling tired
  • Restless
  • losing interest in things you once enjoyed
  • Isolation
  • difficulty sleeping
  • sleeping too much
  • weight gain or loss
Attention Deficit Disorder
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a disorder that affects the ability to concentrate and complete tasks compared to accepted standards of behavior. Individuals are often forgetful, procrastinate, and become easily distracted. Symptoms are apparent over the lifespan, but often become more visible during a life transition, such as graduation, starting a new job, or retirement. ADD can be accompanied by physical hyperactivity or jitteriness, or just an inner feeling of restlessness and discomfort. Patients with ADD are often criticized and misunderstood by others. Fortunately, once diagnosed, ADD responds to behavioral strategies with or without medication management. Successfully treated individuals are able to reach professional and personal goals that they previously considered insurmountable.
Physical Health And Stress
Physiological reactions to stress include increased heart rate, blood pressure, breathing rate, and muscle tension. Research has demonstrated that prolonged exposure to chemicals that produce these responses can be damaging to physical health. Stress has been shown to exacerbate peptic ulcer disease, heart disease, immune problems, and certain neurological disorders. Along with physical illness, psychological reactions can interfere with our ability to think clearly and logically. The good news is that with appropriate treatment and coping strategies, individuals can improve their physical health and enjoy a richer quality of life. Reducing emotions such as anger, hostility, and anxiety can also improve interpersonal relationships and help others achieve more joy in their marriages, friendships, and parenting roles.
Bipolar Disorder

It is normal for all of us to experience mood changes in response to different life events. Some of us experience moods changes and fluctuations more than usual. People living with bipolar disorder can have extreme moods. Some examples of these include: manic state – feeling really high, active, less need of sleep and euphoria. Depressive state is when the person feels really low, anger, sadness and lack of vitality. If you are experiencing any of these mood swings, it is very important to get help from a psychiatrist right away.
