Almost everyone feels anxious at times

However, people with anxiety disorders frequently have intense, persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Often, anxiety disorders involve repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear that reach a peak within minutes (panic attacks).

These feelings of anxiety and panic interfere with daily activities, are challenging to control, are out of proportion to the actual danger and can be long-lasting. They can also include physical symptoms such as restlessness, shortness of breath, palpitations, muscle aches, sweating, and insomnia.  You may avoid places or situations to prevent these feelings. Symptoms may start during childhood or the teen years and continue into adulthood.

  • Anxiety coupled with ADHD, depression, and other disorders
  • Mindfulness and ACT Approaches
