It’s normal to have occasional worries about things in your life. For example, you may worry about money, your relationships, or your health. However, when your worries are more than temporary, when they are not going away, and are actually getting worse, that can be a cause for concern. The worries can lead to symptoms that interfere with school, daily work life, and relationships with others. I can help you with the root cause of your anxiety.
Anxiety disorders are actually the most common form of mental health issues in the United States today. Some estimates say this problem affects nearly 1 in 5 adults. Anxiety disorders can include irrational fears of certain situations and may bring on real physical symptoms such as headaches, stomach and muscle aches, or, in some cases, sudden, intense physical anxiety with shortness of breath or a rapid heartbeat.
A panic attack can happen when a person has high levels of anxiety. Anyone can have a panic attack. Sometimes, these attacks are a symptom of panic disorder.
During a panic attack, a person may experience overwhelming emotions, including helplessness and fear. Physical symptoms can include a fast heartbeat, rapid breathing, sweating, and shaking.
Panic attacks often happen in specific situations that trigger heightened stress. But some people experience them repeatedly, with no clear triggers. In this case, the person may have panic disorder.
I use a variety of tools that can help with anxiety disorders. The treatment process usually begins with identifying the behaviors, emotions and stresses that are contributing to the problem, and then moving on to appropriate therapies that can help you to regain a sense of control and pleasure in your life.
