    Conditions We Treat

    Although everyone can except some stress in their daily lives, it can sometimes take over other healthy emotions and become too burdensome to manage.


    PTSD is a psychiatric illness that some people develop following a traumatic event. Symptoms include flashbacks, anger, avoidance, and intrusive thoughts.

    Panic Attacks

    Panic attacks are short, intense events in which patients experience overwhelming feelings of dread, increasing heart rates, difficulty breathing, or trembling.

    Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

    Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a kind of anxiety disorder that causes patients to obsess over relatively mundane aspects of life.

    Low Self-Esteem

    A person’s self-esteem level describes how they feel about their behaviors, body, values, and overall worth. It is sometimes called self-worth.

    Grief Counseling

    Grief is a strong, emotional, and natural reaction to a significant loss. People who are grieving may feel overwhelmed by sadness or loneliness.


    Although it affects each person differently, depression generally causes feelings of hopelessness and loss of interest in daily life.

    Bipolar disorder is a mental illness in which patients experience periods of mania followed by episodes of depression. It is also a form of depression.
