Anxiety Therapy - Adults

Anxiety is a common yet often debilitating condition that affects millions of adults in the United States. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), an estimated 40 million adults in the U.S., or about 18.1% of the population, are affected by anxiety disorders. These disorders can make it difficult for individuals to cope with everyday life, causing significant distress and interference with daily activities.

While it is normal to experience some anxiety from time to time, anxiety disorders are characterized by intense and persistent worry or fear that can significantly interfere with daily functioning. While everyone experiences anxiety differently, common symptoms of anxiety disorders may include:

  • Constant fear and worry without cause interrupting daily life
  • Avoiding social situations due to fear of feeling uncomfortable
  • Panic attacks without cause or fear of having a panic attack
  • Irrational fear of something that does not poses a danger

Anxiety Therapy - Children

Anxiety disorders affect 31.9% of adolescents between 13 and 18 years old. Research shows that if left untreated teenagers with anxiety disorders are at higher risk to perform poorly in school, miss out on important social experiences, and engage in substance abuse.

Symptoms of anxiety in children may include:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Frequent worry
  • Avoidance of certain activities

It is important to address anxiety in children early on to prevent it from interfering with their development and well-being.

I use a variety of techniques, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness, to help children struggling with anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, and phobias. I work with children and their families to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses their specific needs and goals.

If you are a parent looking for anxiety therapy for your child, please don't hesitate to contact me. I am here to support you and your child on their journey towards healing and recovery, and I am committed to working with you to develop effective strategies for managing their anxiety.
