Anxiety

Stress and anxiety are certainly common to all of us: however, when your anxiety increases to the point where it is affecting your daily life, it is time to get help. You may have been struggling with anxiety throughout your life (excessive worrying, panic attacks) or perhaps your anxiety has come on quickly as a result of a more sudden change or hardship in your life such as the birth of a child, death of a loved one, job loss, school failure, car accident, etc. People who have not experienced your level of anxiety may not understand how difficult it is to live with anxiety and may give you suggestions such as “it will get better”, “you will be ok”, or “just suck it up.” However, if you have anxiety, you know that these suggestions, although well intended, are not helpful. We understand exactly what you are going through and you are not alone. Decades of research on anxiety have proven that anxiety is a result of chemical imbalances in the brain. Using the most widely used empirically-based treatment called Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), we have proven techniques that work (often without medication) to reduce anxiety so that it is no longer negatively impacting your life. Treatment is often short-term and immediately effective. There is no reason to wait to schedule an initial consultation appointment with one of our experts to see if Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is the solution to you leading a happier and more content life.

We have specialized in assessing and successfully treating anxiety for many decades. Our doctors stay on top of the leading research in anxiety through our direct affiliation with universities, who are on the front lines of the newest and most effective treatment for anxiety.
