WHAT WE TREAT
ADHD (or ADD) is a common disorder that often persists into adulthood for one third to one half of people diagnosed with it. There are three types of ADHD: predominately hyperactive-impulse, predominantly inattentive, and combined type. The type of ADHD is based on the number of symptoms present in each category.
Clinical depression is a worsening of mood that causes impairment in academic, occupational, or social functioning. It can be severe and disabling, resulting in suicidal behaviors and hospitalization, or it can be mild and chronic (two years), resulting in mild impairments and unhappiness.
Sudden, intense periods of anxiety that strike out of the blue, featuring racing heart, excessive sweating, and a sense of losing control.People often mistakenly believe they are having a heart attack, and they seek emergency medical attention.
