Kinds of Anxiety Issues I Work With
Generalized Anxiety Disorder - Free-floating anxiety that feels like it's coming
out of nowhere and everywhere. Sometimes it's hard for the person experiencing
it to tell what it's connected to. A constant chronic sense of worry and fear about
everything and nothing. Essentially, you feel constantly nervous for no apparent
Panic Disorder and Phobias – experience brief, intensely frightening attacks of
overwhelming anxiety. Panic attacks may require a combination of medication
and therapy for optimal success.
Agoraphobia - an extreme fear of any situation in which escape seems difficult.
People suffering from agoraphobia may lead very narrow lifestyles, preferring to
stay in familiar surroundings and rarely venturing out. Shopping, visits to the
doctor -- even coming to therapy -- may feel impossible.
Social Anxiety Disorder - fear of situations in which you perceive the threat of
humiliation (social phobia). Feeling socially clumsy, having trouble with small talk
in social situations, and letting fear of embarrassment or humiliation cause
avoidance of triggering situations.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder - Can manifest from mild to severe including
obsessive thoughts and repetitive rituals that feel mandatory.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) - A normal response to abnormal
situations frequently involving accidents, crime victimization (including abuse)
and combat experiences. PTSD causes a variety of troubling symptoms and can
have a mild to severe impact.
Sometimes people with anxiety are also dealing with symptoms of depression.
Frequently, symptoms of anxiety and depression feed on each other.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can be
beneficial for both anxiety and depression.
