Lately, likely due to the increased coverage on television and in social media, many people have been coming in to see me saying they have poor attention, they can’t focus, and they think they may have ADHD. Some do, some don’t. When they do have it, the best treatment often isn’t what they were expecting. […]
The holidays are a time to enjoy family, friends, and good cheer, but as we go through this joyous season, many of us struggle with mental health challenges and stress due to a combination of social obligations, financial burdens, and other factors. From going to festive events we may have little interest in attending, to […]
For this month’s Consult The Expert interview, I spoke with Seth Grobman, Psy.D., a clinical psychologist here at The Anxiety Center.

In our second Consult The Expert interview for March, we spoke with Nonie L. Craige, LCSW, a psychotherapist at the Center for Treatment of Anxiety and Mood Disorders.
The Center’s newest clinician, Dr. Jerome Siegmeister, MD, MaED, is an expert on the psychiatric concerns of children and adolescents. A former high school teacher, he has a unique perspective on how children learn and the societal skills they can only develop through social interaction with peers. Since the pandemic, what he has seen has left him genuinely concerned.
Marsha Glines, Ph.D is the only person on the Center for Treatment of Anxiety and Mood Disorder’s team who is not a therapist or behaviorist – she is an educator who brings a diagnostic standpoint to the Center. Her role is best defined as that of an academic coach. “I believe very strongly that learning should be empowering and meaningful,” she says. “Everyone learns differently and not everyone can learn through traditional classroom methods.”
