Clinical Services

At Psychiatric Associates of North Carolina, we are committed to providing mental health care that is specifically tailored to the unique journey of each individual. In a world where mental health issues are consistently on the rise, challenges like depression, anxiety, psychosis, and substance abuse are becoming more prevalent. These conditions can worsen existing health problems and, without proper treatment, can lead to decreased self-care and work productivity. Our approach at Psychiatric Associates of North Carolina is centered on addressing these conditions with thorough attention and expertise.

Anxiety disorders are characterized by feelings of worry, panic or fear.  Common disorders include generalized anxiety, panic disorder, and social anxiety.  Obsessive compulsive disorders involve recurrent thoughts or repetitive behaviors

ADHD (Child, Adolescent, Adult)

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects children and teens and can continue into adulthood. ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed mental health problem of children. Children with ADHD have a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity and impulsivity that interferes with normal functioning and/or development.

Sleep disorders

Sleep disorders are conditions that prevent a person from getting restful sleep and, as a result, can cause daytime sleepiness and dysfunction in their daily lives.

Psychotic Disorders

Psychotic disorders are severe mental disorders that cause abnormal thinking and perceptions.

Dementia and Cognitive Disorders

Dementia and cognitive disorders include conditions with different possible causes that can affect cognition (memory, thinking, perception, attention), behavior, and mood.  Management of these conditions may include partnering with neurology and other providers.

Substance Use Disorders

Mental health problems and substance use disorders sometimes occur together. Mental and substance use disorders share some underlying causes, including changes in brain composition, genetic vulnerabilities, and early exposure to stress or trauma.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT allows for individuals experiencing a wide array of mental health concerns to improve their own awareness and ability to manage emotions and decrease stress.  In combination with medication, individuals typically experience faster and more thorough improvement.
