We Specialize in Many Areas
Our collective experience is in certain disorders and with specific populations
Our therapists have the knowledge and expertise to treat a significant number of mental health and wellness issues such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADD and ADHD in children and adults, marital and family conflict, grief, stress management, and life transitions.
However, some of our therapists have a deeper level of expertise in the following areas:
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
PTSD is a mental health issue that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing life-threatening events, such as a natural disaster, a car accident, sexual assault, or combat. After such events, it is common for individuals to experience intrusive and upsetting memories of the event, hypervigilance, increased startle response, jumpiness, or trouble sleeping. If these reactions do not resolve over time or if they get worse, it is possible the individual may have developed PTSD.
Some of our therapists have a deeper level of experience to assist clients struggling with the wide array of symptoms associated with PTSD.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), in 2014 approximately 20.2 million adults (8.4%) had a substance use disorder. Of these, 7.9 million people had both a mental disorder and substance use disorder known as co-occurring mental and substance use disorders. These issues are common, prone to relapse, and often serious, but there is hope because they are treatable with many people reaching recovery.
Substance use disorder encompasses the recurrent use of alcohol and/or drugs causing clinical and functional impairment, including physical health problems, disability, as well as failure to meet major responsibilities at work, school, or home. According to the DSM-5, a diagnosis of substance use disorder is based on evidence of impaired control, social impairment, risky use, and pharmacological criteria.
Some of our therapists have a deeper level of experience to assist clients struggling with substance use and co-occurring mental health issues.
