Variety of anxiety disorders can contribute to disruptive feelings of unease or worry, such as: Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic disorder, PTSD, OCD.

Skills that patients gain during the treatment will last the lifetime.
Bipolar disorder is a life-long condition, but with the right combination of therapy and medication patients can manage the chronic nature of symptoms and lead fulfilling and productive lives. With Dr. Filipovic-Jewell's care and monitoring, mood oscilations are quickly addressed and well maintained. Bipolar disorder can be well controlled condition, rather than debilitating disorder.

When sleep disorders aren’t caused by another condition, treatment normally involves a combination of medical treatment and lifestyle changes.
