DISORDERS WE TREAT
Premier Anxiety & Depression Treatment
GENERALIZED ANXIETY DISORDER
Do you experience excessive anxiety and worry about a number of events or activities? Do you find it difficult to control the worry? You may be dealing with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Symptoms people commonly experience are: restlessness or feeling keyed up or on edge, being easily fatigued, difficulty concentrating or mind going blank, irritability, muscle tension, or sleep disturbance.
Do you have a depressed mood most of the day, nearly every day? Do you feel sadness, emptiness, or hopelessness? Is it tough for you to enjoy or take interest in any activities that you used to enjoy? Are you experiencing significant loss or weight gain? Are you experiencing insomnia or hypersomnia? Do you have a loss of energy or experience inappropriate guilt? Is it tough for you to think or concentrate? These are just some of the symptoms indicating that you may be experiencing depression. There are different types of depressive disorders. Talk to one of our clinicians today.
OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER (OCD)
Do you experience distressing recurrent and persistent intrusive or unwanted thoughts, urges, or images? Do you attempt to ignore or suppress these thoughts, urges, or images or neutralize them with some other thought or action (compulsion)? You may be experiencing OCD.
There are many different themes of OCD such as: Harm OCD, HOCD (gay OCD), Relationship OCD, Contamination OCD, Scrupulosity/Religious OCD, Perinatal/Postpartum OCD, and Sensorimotor OCD. Other intrusive thoughts may be sexual in nature.
We specialize in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), the gold standard treatment for OCD.
An individual with panic disorder has recurrent unexpected panic attacks with persistent concern or worry about additional panic attacks or their consequences (e.g., losing control, having a heart attack, or “going crazy”). An individual with panic disorder may begin to avoid sensations that could bring on panic attacks, such as avoidance of exercise or unfamiliar situations.
Do you fear using public transportation, being in open spaces, being in enclosed places, standing in line or being in a crowd, or being outside of the home alone? Individuals experiencing agoraphobia fear or avoid these situations because of thoughts that escape might be difficult or help might not be available in the event of developing panic-like symptoms or other incapacitating or embarrassing symptoms. The agoraphobic situations almost always provoke fear or anxiety.
ILLNESS ANXIETY DISORDER (HEALTH ANXIETY)
Do you have a preoccupation with having or acquiring a serious illness? Individuals with illness anxiety disorder have a high level of anxiety about health and are easily alarmed about their personal health status. The individual performs excessive health-related behaviors or exhibits maladaptive avoidance.
SOCIAL ANXIETY DISORDER (SOCIAL PHOBIA)
Do you experience fear or anxiety about one or more social situations? Individuals with Social Anxiety Disorder may fear having a conversation, meeting unfamiliar people, being observed (e.g., eating or drinking), or performing in front of others (e.g., giving a speech).
Marked fear or anxiety about a specific object or situation (e.g. flying, heights, animals, receiving an injection, seeing blood). The phobic object or situation almost always provokes immediate fear or anxiety.
Individuals with hoarding disorder have persistent difficulty discarding or parting with their possessions, regardless of their actual value. The difficulty is due to a perceived need to save the items and to avoid distress associated with discarding them. The difficulty discarding possessions results in the accumulation of possessions that congest and clutter active living areas and substantially compromises their intended use. The hoarding causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupation, or other important areas of functioning.
POSTTRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER (PTSD)
We provide evidence-based Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure therapy treatment from individuals suffering from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. Some individuals develop PTSD after directly experiencing or witnessing an actual or threatened death, serious injury, or sexual violence.
