Anxiety Treatment

Research-Validated Therapy for Anxiety

Anxiety disorders are extremely common, and can cause feelings such as worry, fear, or tension. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, an estimated 40 million people in the U.S. are affected by anxiety disorders.

The COVID pandemic has resulted in a major disruption in our lives leading to a high degree of uncertainty and staggering rates of anxiety disorders.

If your mind is often filled with worry or fears, you are not alone. The positive news is that with the right therapists who treat anxiety, you can feel better.

Anxiety disorders we treat include:

Those that suffer from GAD, or general worry, have severe, ongoing anxiety that interferes with daily activities. Symptoms can include constant worry, restlessness, and trouble with concentration.
Panic disorder sufferers experience recurring panic attacks, which are abrupt surges of intense fear or physical discomfort that begin suddenly, often with no warning. Symptoms of panic may include: shortness of breath, racing heart, chills, trembling, dizziness, numbness or tingling, chest pain, stomach pain and nausea. As clients worry about physical symptoms or having another panic attack, they may experience more attacks. As panic increases in frequency and intensity, clients may experience a disruption in their functioning and quality of life.
A phobia is an excessive and irrational fear, often connected to a certain place, situation, or object. If extreme, phobias can have a dramatic impact on one’s life as they avoid the feared situation or object.
OCD manifests itself as repeated unwanted, stuck thoughts (obsessions) which lead to the urge to act in a repetitive manner (compulsions) as an attempt to quiet the obsessional thoughts. Clients develop ritualized patterns of behavior which may lead to a negative impact on functioning and quality of life.
Social Anxiety Disorder

Social anxiety disorder is a mental health condition in which the individual fears social interactions and/or social judgement from others. For people with social anxiety disorder, everyday social interactions cause irrational anxiety, fear, self-consciousness, and embarrassment.
