Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety is a combination of both psychological and physiological symptoms that can lead to stress, physical discomfort, persistent worrying and obsessing, fear of social situations and other phobias, as well as panic attacks. People with anxiety often experience an unpleasant feeling that is typically characterized as uneasiness, apprehension, fear, or worry. Anxiety is experienced in numerous forms, ranging from the concretely physical to the intensely emotional. It is a condition for which anxiety counseling through psychotherapy, particularly cognitive therapy, is well-suited. As with depression, anxiety falls along a continuum from mild to severe. A common physical manifestation of anxiety is a panic attack, which is experienced as a combination of a pounding heart, sweating, shaking, and a shortness of breath. Psychotherapy can be an effective stand alone treatment for anxiety, or may occur in combination with anti-anxiety medications.
