Embrace the Process
Mental health problems are deeply misunderstood, and far too often people decide that it’s better to ignore these problems, rather than actively seek a way to fight them. That’s a long-lasting symptom in a society where a lot of mental disorders and associated behavior draws stigma and misunderstanding, rather than compassion and help.
And we get it, to a degree. No one wants to confront that kind of a reality – the prospect that you’re mentally ill sounds absolutely terrifying.
It doesn’t have to be. Many people can work through their diagnosis, and lead a normal, fulfilling life without weekly therapy or daily medication. And no matter how bad you think things are, there’s always a way to overcome your illness and work your way towards that normal life.
We’re trying to be a beacon working to turn the tides, and explain that you don’t have to suffer alone or in silence just because many people don’t understand the difference between being in a bad mood and suffering clinical depression. And our way of doing that is by offering compassionate care to every man, woman, and child who comes to us for help.
With years of experience and a wealth of knowledge, we have the capacity to help patients suffering from a long list of diagnoses, including:
- Post-Traumatic Stress
- Bipolar Disorder
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Personality Disorders
- And more.
Mental illnesses come in countless forms and shapes. Even among a single type of diagnosis, every single case can be different in its own way, and carry a host of surprises and peculiarities. And because mental health is always about a very personal journey, our work is ultimately useless without your dedication, input, and courage.
We understand that the struggle, and that the process towards a better life doesn’t lie in some easy answer or quick fix. Instead, we offer realistic care options, dedicated long-term treatments, and a doctor-patient relationship that helps you find ways to keep thriving, even after initial treatment.
Our work begins the second you decide to get help. From day one, we’ll work with you to properly diagnose you and your situation, discover if you have any coexisting illnesses – as often enough, mental illnesses come in pairs and groups – and begin the preliminary work to move forward.
There is no cookie-cutter approach to any single diagnosis, and we don’t immediately get you started on a treatment type until we’ve fully explored our options, studied your circumstances, and have given you the opportunity to decide on your own what would be best for you. Every treatment we perform tackles a patient’s unique situation with an equal amount of uniqueness – and it’s our flexibility within a given set of proprietary techniques that makes us confident that we can help with any mental diagnosis.
All that is a fancy way of saying that we take our time in evaluating what’s best for you, and what might’ve worked for one patient won’t necessarily work in your case – which is why we focus on a targeted, thorough approach. There are a lot of ways we can help you, including:
- Group Therapy
- Psychoanalytic Therapy
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
- Art Therapy
- Mindfulness Therapy
- Yoga & Meditation
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
- And more.
Once we’ve determined a plan of action, we see it through until circumstances change. Sometimes, treatment can reveal other underlying issues, or prove itself to be ineffective. Even after studying your case, we can’t guarantee we’ll find the perfect treatment on the first try. We’re only human, after all.
But what we can guarantee is that we won’t give up. Treating a mental health diagnosis is a long-term thing, and in some cases, it can take years until you feel like you’ve completely mastered your illness. In other cases, of course, it can take a mere few months. The difference is you – just like you’re a unique person with different strengths and weaknesses, so will your response to treatments differ to other people.
Maybe medication doesn’t do you any good, while yoga and mindfulness do you wonders in controlling and numbing your OCD. Or maybe you can’t stand the idea of meditating and respond much better to classic psychotherapy. Our job isn’t just to know what generally works and what generally doesn’t work – it’s to find out what works and doesn’t work in your case. And from simple, heavily-researched approaches like group therapy to complex and cutting edge tech like brainspotting, we don’t stop until we’ve found the right way to help you help yourself.
