CBT and Mindfulness
Most adults with enduring mental health conditions can potentially benefit from psychiatric medications, which are generally very safe and effective. This is an important standard of care, and we have considerable recognized expertise in the safe and effective use of these medications. They can also be easily integrated with other effective interventions, whether biomedical or psychosocial in nature.
“Your relentless search, striving to understand, to eradicate, brings a new hope to what so often seems hopeless. As a patient highly resistant to drugs, this approach offers particular hope. And it offers hope too for my daughter and my daughter’s daughter – for all who live under a shadow of pending depression. I thank you for allowing me to participate in this program, I applaud your efforts and pray for your success.”
Clinical Conditions That We Treat
Depression is very common and can take many forms. It is essential to have a thorough evaluation in order to reach an accurate diagnosis, as this will determine how to choose the best treatment of the many that are available. Treatment-resistant depression (TRD) is a special form of depression where individuals do not experience adequate relief with conventional treatments. We can offer these individuals considerable expertise in the use of TMS, ketamine, and medication combinations to achieve better outcomes.
Many individuals who experience depression also experience clinical states referred to as mania or hypomania. These persons should be carefully distinguished from those who experience depression alone (unipolar depression) because the treatments and other considerations may be very different. We offer a thorough evaluation to establish an accurate diagnosis so that the right treatment can proceed.
Anxiety is quite common, and like depression, there are diverse treatments available. We treat individuals with anxiety syndromes such as post-traumatic stress, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Conditions such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and related conditions require long-term, ongoing care. Medications are a mainstay for these conditions, though psychosocial interventions can offer additional benefit. We have recognized expertise in the use of antipsychotic medications to relieve the more serious symptoms and support well-being.
