Anxiety is one of the most common issues that we treat. There are actually over 40 million adults in the U.S. (19.1%) that have an anxiety disorder of one kind or another. There are various types of anxiety disorders, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, social phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Though different, each of these anxiety disorders is consistent in causing persistent, excessive worry in situations that are not threatening.
Although anyone can have anxiety related to various stressors in their daily lives, it can become debilitating for certain people, and affect daily functioning in work, school, or social interactions. When anxiety begins to affect your daily functioning, treatment with medications and/or psychotherapy are proven methods for helping clients take back control.
