Areas of Practice
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD):
PTSD is a mental health problem that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like combat, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault. It’s normal to have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after this type of event.
Common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. Depression causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed. It can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems and can decrease your ability to function at work and at home.
Involve more than temporary worry or fear. The anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. The symptoms can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, schoolwork, and relationships.
Is the process of learning to recognize signs that you’re becoming angry, and taking action to calm down and deal with the situation in a productive way.
Substance Abuse Disorder:
A condition in which there is uncontrolled use of a substance despite harmful consequence. People with SUD have an intense focus on using certain substance(s) such as alcohol, tobacco, or illicit drugs, to the point where the person’s ability to function in day to day life becomes impaired.
