For Patients

Many people suffer for years without seeking help. It is very important to find a collaborative, reliable treatment setting that can promote lasting results.

Helping Patients

Psychological stress and mental illness can be very painful. Yet both remain under-diagnosed and under-treated. Many people go for months, years or even their entire lives without getting help. Sometimes patients do reach out, but find that it is difficult to find a setting in which they feel attended to in a focused and individualized way.

Disorders Treated

In popular media, there is often a hunt for labels for psychological conditions. However, patients often experience symptoms that come from more than one diagnostic category, so attaching labels turns out to be of limited use. It also tends to happen that most symptoms are specific to each individual and will manifest themselves in unique ways for any given patient. With that in mind, it is possible to mention some broad diagnostic categories with which people often come to treatment, without suggesting that they are all-encompassing.
