Psychiatric Conditions We Treat


Anxiety is a natural and common human emotion. When you’re anxious, your body and mind might react with physical symptoms like a faster heart rate, tense muscles, and racing thoughts. Anxiety is normal, but persistent or severe anxiety may interfere with daily life and may require attention and support.


Depression is a complex mental health condition that goes beyond occasional feelings of sadness or temporary mood swings. It profoundly affects an individual’s emotional and physical well-being, altering how they think, feel, and engage with the world around them. Characterized by a persistent sense of despair, loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities, and a noticeable impact on daily functioning, depression requires a compassionate, multifaceted treatment approach.


Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a neurodevelopmental condition characterized by challenges in sustaining attention, impulsivity, and often excessive physical activity. In Short, it’s hard to pay attention, control impulses, and stay still, making it a bit tougher to focus and manage tasks. Medications can be effective in managing symptoms.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that causes extreme mood swings, ranging from high energy and euphoria (mania) to low energy and deep sadness (depression). These mood swings can affect a person’s daily life. Managing mood swings in bipolar disorder often involves a combination of medication, therapy, and lifestyle changes.


Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can develop after someone experiences a traumatic event. You may have intense thoughts, and feelings, and may experience flashbacks, nightmares, or difficulty sleeping.

I’ve encountered these emotions and feelings before…

Depression manifests differently in everyone. While some might experience intense feelings of sadness, despair, and low self-esteem, others might feel excessively stressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted. Typical signs of depression can include:
  • A lack of interest or enjoyment in activities
  • Persistent low mood
  • Fatigue or diminished energy
  • Changes in appetite, either reduced or increased
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Restlessness or agitation
  • Thoughts of self-harm or that life isn’t worth living
Mood disorders
Mood disorders affect how you feel and can make everyday life challenging. They mainly fall into two categories: Depressive Disorders: If you’re dealing with this type, you might feel really sad or empty, lose interest in things you used to enjoy, or struggle to find any pleasure in life. This includes conditions like major depression, persistent low mood (also known as dysthymia), and seasonal mood changes that can happen in winter (known as Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD). Bipolar Disorders: This type is like being on an emotional rollercoaster with really high highs (called mania), where you might feel super energetic and happy, and very low lows (depression), where you might feel very sad or hopeless. Bipolar I and Bipolar II are two kinds of bipolar disorder. It’s tough, but understanding these disorders is a step towards managing them and feeling better.
Feeling anxious now and then is part of life. But when your worry doesn’t go away and starts to take over, making everyday tasks feel overwhelming, it might be more than just stress – it could be an anxiety disorder. Remember, you’re not alone in this; anxiety disorders are actually the most common mental health issue in the U.S., affecting 40 million people. The good news? They’re very treatable. Signs of anxiety can include:
  • Worrying a lot about different things, not just one issue
  • Finding it hard to stop or control your worry
  • Feeling on edge
  • Getting tired easily
  • Having trouble focusing
  • Being easily annoyed
  • Struggling to sleep
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a widely recognized mental health condition, known for causing higher-than-average levels of hyperactivity and impulsive actions. Typical behaviors seen in ADHD can involve:
  • Difficulty staying focused or paying attention to tasks
  • Often forgetting to finish tasks
  • Getting distracted easily
  • Trouble staying seated or still
  • Cutting into conversations or interrupting others
Bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition characterized by extreme mood swings that include emotional highs, known as mania or hypomania, and lows, or depression. These intense fluctuations can affect energy, thinking, and behavior, leading to unpredictable mood and behavioral changes that can cause significant challenges in daily life.

The main types of bipolar disorder are:

  • Bipolar I Disorder: This type involves periods of severe mood episodes from mania to depression.
  • Bipolar II Disorder: A milder form, involving less severe manic phases called hypomania, alternated with depressive episodes.

Common Causes of Mental Health Conditions

Mental illness encompasses a wide range of mental health conditions that affect mood, thinking, and behavior. The causes are often complex and multifaceted, involving a combination of genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors.

The exact causes of mental illness can vary greatly depending on the specific condition, but common factors include:

  • Genetic Factors: Many mental illnesses run in families, suggesting that genes may play a role.
  • Biological Factors: Imbalances in brain chemistry or structural changes in the brain can contribute to mental illness.
  • Life Experiences: Traumatic or stressful life events, such as abuse, the death of a loved one, or financial problems, can trigger mental illness in people predisposed to these conditions.
  • Environmental Exposures: Exposure to environmental stressors, toxins, or even prenatal damage can play a role in the development of mental illness.
