Conditions We Treat
We treat many mental health conditions, including but not limited to the following.
Anorexia is a severe eating disorder characterized by abnormally low body weight, intense fear of gaining weight, and a distorted self-image. Individuals struggling with anorexia severely limit their food consumption, resulting in extreme malnutrition and many physical and mental health issues.
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 (GAD), panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and specific phobias, making daily life challenging and overwhelming.
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.
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by difficulties with social interaction, communication, and repetitive behaviors. Autism impacts individuals differently, with varying degrees of severity. Yet by providing early intervention and treatment, those on the spectrum can live happy and successful lives.
Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition characterized by extreme mood swings, ranging from depression to mania. It affects an individual’s ability to regulate emotions, causing disruptions in daily life and relationships.
Depression is a mental health condition characterized by persistent 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.
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 without considering their actions’ consequences. This can lead to problems in various areas of life, such as relationships, work, and finances.
Mood dysregulation refers to persistent and severe mood swings resulting in intense irritability and unpredictably fierce emotional responses to events. It is typically diagnosed in children and adolescents and is considered a severe form of bipolar disorder. Those who struggle with mood dysregulation are subjected to intense and erratic emotional fluctuations—often feeling far more than what is appropriate for the presented situation. Treatment for this condition can include medication, therapy, and lifestyle modifications that will aid in controlling their feelings and managing any distressful symptoms.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition characterized by repetitive thoughts, images, or impulses that people can’t control and repetitive behaviors or mental acts they feel driven to perform. These preoccupations and repetitive behaviors can be severely distressing, taking up a copious amount of time and preventing one from completing regular daily tasks.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
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. PTSD is identified by persistent and recurrent symptoms, including intrusive recollections of the traumatic experience, evasion of reminders connected to it, and continual feelings of distress or sensibility. Physiological arousals like a heightened state of alertness or vigilance accompany these.
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 or fixed false beliefs, disordered thoughts, and unusual or bizarre behavior. Psychotic symptoms can arise from a mental health conditions like schizophrenia or as an adverse effect of certain drugs, medicines, and substances. It is essential to seek professional help if you or somebody you know is exhibiting these signs. They might be problematic and disruptive to everyday life.
Schizophrenia is a severe 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 many symptoms, including social withdrawal, disorganized speech and behavior, and loss of interest in daily activities. While it can be challenging, many people struggling with schizophrenia can lead successful lives with the proper treatment and support.
Sensory issues refer to difficulties processing information from one or more senses, such as sight, sound, touch, taste, or smell. This can lead to discomfort, distress, or even avoidance of specific stimuli. Sensory issues can be a part of various conditions, such as ASD, ADHD, or developmental delays. Individuals with sensory issues need proper evaluation and treatment to support their sensory needs and improve their overall quality of life.
Do you find it hard to fall asleep at night, or do you constantly wake up in the early morning hours? Does your daytime fatigue cause difficulties in concentration and productivity? These are all typical sleep irregularities when one’s rest pattern does not meet optimal health standards. Sleep irregularities can be a symptom of an underlying condition or a result of lifestyle factors, such as stress, anxiety, or sleep apnea.
