Understanding Your Symptoms

Anxiety Disorders

At Solstice Healthcare, we specialize in the treatment of various anxiety disorders. Anxiety disorders may have you feeling restless and overwhelmed, experiencing intrusive thoughts, or having an increased heart rate. We treat a wide range of anxiety disorders including, but not limited to, the following.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder goes beyond the occasional stress or worry; it manifests as an overwhelming and persistent state of fear and apprehension. This can impact one’s ability to concentrate effectively and get adequate sleep.

Panic Disorder is a condition where people experience intense episodes of fear accompanied with physical distress such as rapid heart rate and a shortness of breath. People experience panic attacks and it can feel like they are no longer in control of their body.

Social Anxiety is when you experience intense fear of social situations and have a persistent worry about being judged by others. Our services are designed to help individuals overcome the challenges associated with social anxiety and regain confidence in social interactions.

Phobia-related Disorders are when individuals have an intense fear of specific objects or situations, such as flying, heights, or animals, which can significantly impact daily life. Our team uses evidence-based practices to help people overcome these fears.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) involves intrusive, distressing thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviors or mental rituals (compulsions) performed to alleviate anxiety. Often, people experience intense levels of distress if these compulsions are not completed.

Agoraphobia is a fear of situations or places that may be difficult to escape or where help may not be readily available. Oftentimes, to decrease the feelings of fear, people will avoid those public spaces.

We understand the profound impact anxiety can have on your daily life. Our aim is to assist you in effectively managing distress and regaining a sense of control over your life when it comes to anxiety. Together, we can help you feel more confident, have less racing thoughts, and feel safe in your body.

Mood Disorders

Our team provides compassionate and comprehensive support for a wide range of mood related disorders. Through personalized treatment, our team can help you with mood related disorders including, but not limited to, the following.

Bipolar is where people experience major shifts in their mood. This can include elevated levels of energy, called mania, and episodes of sadness or depression. These fluctuations can be exhausting for people, so our team works on helping you feel more stable.

Major Depression goes beyond feeling sadness. Often, it includes feeling hopelessness, experiencing a loss of interest in activities, and can change your appetite and sleeping patterns.

Mood Disorder related to a health condition is when there is a significant change in one’s emotional state that is linked to a medical condition or illness. Depression is commonly associated with cancer, chronic pain, auto-immune diseases, and many other chronic illnesses. Our comprehensive approach addresses these unique challenges of the relationship between one’s physical health and mental health.

Postpartum Depression (PPD) is when you experience intense feelings of sadness, anxiety, and exhaustion after childbirth. Our compassionate care helps individuals through this transition, offering support and providing stability.

It does not have to feel like this forever. Our skilled clinicians are experienced in helping people with mood disorders find hope and growth through the pain. You will receive individualized treatment including evidence-based therapies, and medication if beneficial, to regain your self of well-being.

Trauma & Stressor-Related Disorders

If you find yourself dealing with the aftermath of trauma or overwhelmed with stress-related challenges, our therapy sessions offer a valuable resource for processing and developing coping strategies for a wide range of trauma and stress-related disorders.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) occurs after a traumatic event that impacts our ability to cope and move forward with life. It can feel as though you are caught in the past, sometimes through nightmares or flashbacks, which can hinder the ability to enjoy the present moment. PTSD can also include avoiding things that remind you of the event or feeling blame for why things happened.

Acute Stress Disorder is the immediate stress and anxiety that occurs after a traumatic event that impacts our ability to cope and manage our emotions. It often feels as if the event was stuck on repeat playing over and over again even when the event is over. This distress can feel overwhelming and our team is here to help you move forward from these significant events.

Adjustment Disorder arises as a response to significant life stressors and changes. During these times of transition, individuals may have difficulty coping with the feelings of anxiety and sadness. We are dedicated to providing support for those navigating life’s transitions, fostering confidence and resilience in the face of change.

Prolonged Grief extends beyond what is considered the normal grieving process. Individuals who experience intense pain, disbelief, or yearning for extended periods of time after the loss of a loved one may feel stuck in this process. We are here to guide you through the grieving process while honoring the memory of your loved one.

Together, we aim to help you build resilience and strength by providing a secure and safe environment. You will learn the tools necessary to create new patterns and enjoy your present life. You can break free from the past and not live with the blame and fear that arises constantly. It is time to move forward and reach the life you deserve.
