The Anxiety and Depression Association of America estimates that almost one out of five people suffer from an anxiety disorder, making it the most common mental disorder in the United States.
This disorder is characterized by emotional, physical, and behavioral symptoms that create an unpleasant feeling that is typically described as uneasiness, fear, or worry. Emotional symptoms include fear, racing thoughts, and a feeling of impending doom. People suffering from this type of condition often withdraw and seek to avoid people or certain places.
While generalized anxiety disorder is the most common, there are other related disorders, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, phobias, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Our therapists are highly trained and qualified to treat people with anxiety disorders using techniques based on best available research. Our extensive training includes understanding and using a variety of psychotherapies, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
We can also offer family or couples psychotherapy to help family members better understand their loved one’s symptoms and learn new ways of interacting that do not reinforce the condition and associated dysfunctional behaviors.
