Common Conditions We Treat

Major depressive disorder, often referred to as depression, is a common illness that can affect anyone. For the average American, it estimated that about 20% of people will experience depression at one point in their lives. It is estimated that over 19 million Americans will experience some form of depression each year.


Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive disorder, is a common mood disorder in which people have periods of extreme mood swings that can range from manic highs to severe depression. Bipolar disorder affects at least one in 70 people. In the United States, approximately 6 million adults have bipolar disorder.


Anxiety disorders are the most common of emotional disorders and affect more than 25 million Americans. Anxiety disorders differ from normal feelings of nervousness. Untreated anxiety disorders can push people into avoiding situations that trigger or worsen their symptoms.


Trauma is often the result of an overwhelming amount of stress that exceeds one’s ability to cope, or integrate the emotions involved with that experience

It was such a seamless process. I just though I needed sleeping pills for a long flight but found the root of my restlessness. Now, I’m a regular patient of Dr. Hubley’s and am better equipped to manage my anxiety.
