Adult ADHD in NYC

Life can be stressful and complicated for any adult; balancing family obligations, maintaining relationships, juggling work responsibilities, etc. For individuals with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) it can feel amplified and overwhelming. Individuals dealing with un-diagnosed ADHD often struggle at work, finding it hard to maintain organization and complete tasks. They also frequently run into problems in relationships, due to their impulsivity and difficulty following through on obligations. Adult ADHD can be easily misdiagnosed, but given the proper diagnosis and treatment, you can lead a happy life with a successful career and relationships.

Anxiety

Experiencing feelings of nervousness or worry is common and in fact important, given the proper circumstances. It is when these feelings become constant or overwhelming and impact your day-to-day life, that it’s time to see a professional for help. Left untreated, anxiety can manifest with physical symptoms and substantially limit one’s quality of life. It’s important to notice the signs and get help, as anxiety can be successfully treated with therapy and/or medication. There is help!

Bipolar Disorders

Bipolar disorder is more than just fluctuations in mood; it impacts relationships, careers, and health. It’s important to recognize the signs that someone may be struggling with bipolar disorder and reach out for help. Managed properly, a person with this diagnosis can lead a happy, fulfilling life.

Addiction & Substance Abuse

Substance abuse and addictions are the most stigmatized and misunderstood illnesses in our society. It can be difficult to recognize the signs when a person first begins suffering with this illness, but helpful to get treatment early on. Our doctors are trained in Addiction Psychiatry; they can recognize the early signs and provide assistance in getting better. If you or someone you know is struggling with substance abuse or addiction, we can provide a safe place to get the necessary help.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder 

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can occur at any age, following an event that has had a negative impact on an individual. PTSD can develop immediately following the event, or years later. It can occur to people who experienced something directly, or to people who witnessed something happening to someone else. Whatever the cause of PTSD, it is helpful to recognize the individual’s triggers and get help in dealing with the symptoms. You do not have to continue to suffer, let us help you overcome the trauma and begin living your life again.

OCD

We all have our quirks, or we may do things “obsessively” that may seem odd to others, but this does not define obsessive compulsive disorder. In OCD, the obsessions or compulsions are time consuming (take over 1 hour per day) or cause significant interruption in social or occupational areas of life. OCD can be successfully treated with medications, therapy, or a combination of both. Click below to learn more about OCD and what we can do to help.

Depression

Depression is a common mental health condition that affects both men and women of any age, negatively affecting the way they think, act, and feel. Depression can decrease an individual’s ability to function in everyday life, including at home and at work, making it the leading cause of disability in the United States. Depression is marked by a persistent low mood and loss of interest in activities once found enjoyable.
