Where we begin
Psychotherapy as well as medication management is provided. To determine whether or not medication treatment is indicated, comprehensive assessment of targeted symptoms is conducted. With these assessments, I give details on the benefits and risks about the medications.
Areas of Practice
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can cause above-normal levels of hyperactive and impulsive behaviors. People with ADHD may also have trouble focusing on a single task or sitting still for long periods of time.
If you are burdened by anxiety, you are not alone. Anxiety is one of the most common struggles. It is also treatable. Resolving anxiety not only brings peace and clarity, it frees wasted energy that could be put to use towards creating a better life.
Bipolar disorder can cause dramatic shifts in a person's mood, energy, and ability to think clearly. People with bipolar have high and low moods which differ from typical ups and downs most people experience.
Whether you have lost interest in things you used to enjoy, want to sleep all the time, or you see yourself isolating from important relationships and withdrawing from life, depression is a miserable experience. Depression is more than just feeling sad or going through a rough patch. Most people with depression, even severe depression, can get better with treatment.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is characterized by repetitive, unwanted, intrusive thoughts and irrational, often excessive urges to do certain actions.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (pTSD)
Traumatic events, such as military combat, assault, an accident, or a natural disaster, can have long-lasting negative effects. Sometimes our biological responses and instincts, which can be life-saving during a crisis, leave people with ongoing psychological symptoms.
Schizophrenia is a serious mental illness that interferes with a person's ability to think clearly, manage emotions, make decisions, and relate to others.
Somatic Symptom Disorder
Somatic symptom disorder involves having a significant focus on physical symptoms, whether they be pain or fatigue, to an extent that brings on major emotional distress.
Tension headaches are dull pains, tightness, or pressure around your forehead or the back of your head and neck. People say it feels like a clamp squeezing on your skull.
