Conditions We Treat
We treat a wide range of mental health conditions, including but not limited to:
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects an individual’s ability to concentrate and control impulsive behaviors. It is commonly diagnosed in children and can continue into adulthood.
Anorexia is a serious eating disorder characterized by abnormally low body weight, intense fear of gaining weight, and a distorted self-image. People with anorexia restrict their food intake, often leading to malnutrition and an array of physical and emotional health problems.
Anxiety is a normal response to stress and danger, but for some individuals, anxiety can become excessive and debilitating. It can manifest in various forms, such as generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and specific phobias, making daily life challenging and overwhelming.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by difficulties with social interaction, communication, and repetitive behaviors. It affects individuals differently and can range from mild to severe. With early intervention and treatment, people with autism can lead fulfilling and productive lives.
Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that is characterized by extreme mood swings, ranging from depression to mania. It affects an individual’s ability to regulate their emotions, causing disruptions in daily life and relationships.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can develop after exposure to a traumatic event, such as combat, sexual assault, or a natural disaster. It is characterized by symptoms such as re-experiencing the traumatic event through intrusive thoughts or flashbacks, avoidance of reminders of the event, and persistent feelings of distress and hyperarousal.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition characterized by repetitive thoughts, images, or impulses that a person can’t control (obsessions) and repetitive behaviors or mental acts they feel driven to perform (compulsions). These obsessions and compulsions can cause significant distress, consume a lot of time, and interfere with daily functioning.
Depression is a mental health condition characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest or pleasure in activities that were once enjoyed. It can also cause physical symptoms such as changes in appetite and sleep patterns, fatigue, and difficulty concentrating.
Psychotic symptoms refer to experiences that are not in line with reality. They can include hallucinations (seeing or hearing things that aren’t there), delusions (fixed false beliefs), disordered thoughts, and unusual or bizarre behavior. Psychotic symptoms can occur as a result of a mental health condition such as schizophrenia or as a side effect of certain medical conditions, medications, or substances. It’s important to seek professional help if you or someone you know is experiencing psychotic symptoms, as they can be distressing and disruptive to daily life.
Schizophrenia is a serious mental health concern characterized by a breakdown in the relationship between thought, emotion, and behavior. It often causes individuals to experience hallucinations, delusions, and disordered thinking, making it difficult for them to distinguish reality from fantasy. This can lead to a wide range of symptoms, including social withdrawal, disorganized speech and behavior, and loss of interest in daily activities. While it can be a challenging condition, many people with schizophrenia can lead successful lives with the right treatment and support.
Mood dysregulation refers to persistent and severe mood swings that can result in intense irritability and unpredictably intense emotional responses to events. It is typically diagnosed in children and adolescents and is considered a severe form of bipolar disorder. People with mood dysregulation experience severe, intense, and unstable mood swings and their emotional responses often don’t match the intensity of the situation. Treatment for mood dysregulation may involve medication, therapy, and lifestyle changes to help regulate moods and manage symptoms.
Sensory issues refer to difficulties in processing information from one or more of the senses, such as sight, sound, touch, taste, or smell. This can lead to discomfort, distress, or even avoidance of certain stimuli. Sensory issues can be a part of various conditions such as autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or developmental delays. It is important for individuals with sensory issues to receive proper evaluation and treatment to support their sensory needs and improve their overall quality of life.
Impulse control refers to the ability to control one’s actions, emotions, and behaviors in a regulated and appropriate manner. Individuals with impulse control difficulties may struggle with acting impulsively or acting without considering the consequences of their actions. This can lead to problems in various areas of life, such as relationships, work, and finances.
Attention-deficit disorder (ADD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects a person’s ability to focus and control their behavior. People with ADD struggle with paying attention, following instructions, and completing tasks, which can lead to difficulties in school, work, and personal relationships. Symptoms of ADD typically begin in childhood and can continue into adulthood.
Suicidal ideation refers to thoughts about wanting to die or take one’s own life. It can range from passive thoughts to detailed plans and is a serious concern that requires immediate attention and intervention. It’s essential for those experiencing suicidal ideation to reach out for help and support from mental health professionals and loved ones to ensure their safety and well-being.
Sleep irregularities refer to patterns of sleep that deviate from normal and healthy standards. This can include difficulties falling or staying asleep, waking up too early, excessive daytime sleepiness, and other sleep-related issues. Sleep irregularities can be a symptom of an underlying condition or a result of lifestyle factors, such as stress, anxiety, or sleep apnea.
