Anxiety Disorders

Are you prone to excessive worry? Do you have difficulty in social situations? Are you tired of overthinking everything? Anxiety is perhaps the most common of all mental health disorders, effecting nearly 40 million Americans each year. 

Everyone worries at certain times in their life. Anxiety disorders occur when the worry becomes excessive, uncontrollable, and so intense that you find yourself unable to function normally. 

Do you find yourself experiencing:

  • Intense, Persistent, Unrealistic Worry
  • Racing Thoughts
  • Feeling Nervous, Restless or Tense
  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Overthinking
  • Difficulty in Social Situations
  • Physical Symptoms such as Muscle Tightness, Rapid Heart Rate, Difficulty Breathing, or Gastrointestinal Problems 

If you answered yes to any of the above, you may be suffering from an Anxiety Disorder. These are the most commonly treated of all mental health disorders, and can include Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Specific Phobias, and Agoraphobia. Anxiety Disorders may be brought on by specific circumstances or may also be hereditary.
