Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Adults

ADHD/ADD disorders in adults can be more difficult to diagnose than in children, as symptoms of mood or anxiety disorder can be misdiagnosed as an ADHD. With establishing clear diagnosis and the right combination of treatment, Dr. Filipovic-Jewell can help you advance your life and career.

Depressive Disorders

Depression is one of the most common mental disorders in the United States, affecting more than 16 million adults. Dr. Filipovic-Jewell uses individual approach to treat depression because of her years of experience in dealing with the many different forms of this disorder. Through your work together, you will gain an insight into pathways that led you to this experience and ways to manage it and hopefully prevent it in the future.

Anxiety Disorders

As a highly skilled clinician, Dr. Filipovic-Jewell utilizes evidence based CBT treatment and/or medication management in her approach of treating anxiety disorders.  Skills that patients gain during the treatment will last the lifetime.

Bipolar Disorder

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.

Women's Health

For many women, changes that can take place during and after reproductive years, can trigger emotional disregulation, often poorly tolerated. Dr. FIlipovic-Jewell has extensive experience treating women with premenstrual symptoms (PMDD), during or post-fertility treatments, postpartum mood or anxiety disorders or emotional difficulties during the menopause.

Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are complex illnesses that can affect both women and men, with various intensity. After a comprehensive evaluation, patients are selected as eligible for an outpatient treatment vs. patients with more severe clinical picture that are directed to inpatient treatment. Dr. FIlipovic-Jewell will collaborate her care with other specialties, often necessary to be involved in the treatment of this complex disorder.

Working on a realistic body image, self-worth and self-appreciation  are central areas that you will be working on.

Substance Use Disorders

Addiction is chronic and often debilitating condition. We use individually tailored therapy (at times involving family therapy and education) with the goal of patients gaining insight, support and utilizing healthier coping skills.  Treating underlying mood and anxiety disorders, if any and at times treating urges with medication is an option in treatment plan, as well. Motivation for change is a key to success! Please call our office if you are ready to make changes and need help with addiction. 


Sleep Disorders

Most people occasionally experience sleeping problems due to stress, hectic schedules, and other outside influences. However, when these issues begin to occur on a regular basis and interfere with daily life, they may indicate a sleeping disorder.

Between 50 and 70 million people in the United States have a sleep disorder, which ranges from insomnia to excessive daytime sleepiness. One third of adult Americans report sleeping less than 7 hours.

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

Marital/Relationship Related Stress

Marriage counseling, also called couples therapy, is a type of psychotherapy.
Dr. FIlipovic-Jewell helps couples recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. You will be provided with a safe environment to express yourself and discuss challenging issues that interfere with your relationship.

Some couples seek marriage counseling to strengthen their partnership and gain a better understanding of each other. Marriage counseling can also help couples who plan to get married. Premarital counseling can help couples achieve a deeper understanding of each other and iron out differences before marriage.

Work-Related Stress

Most people experience work-related stress in the form of tension or anxiety at some point in time, regardless of their industry or career. Work is considered #1 stressor in general population.  If chronic and poorly managed, it can take a toll on your well-being. Whatever your work demands are, there are steps that you can take to protect yourself from the damaging effects of stress, improve your job satisfaction, and your well-being overall.
