Anxiety is a biological reaction—the body’s way of telling us something isn’t right.

 But if anxiety becomes overwhelming and persistent, or if it interferes with regular daily activities, or even makes them impossible, it may be an anxiety disorder.


Anxiety Disorders are the most common mental disorders in the USA


Over 40 million adults experience an anxiety disorder each year

There are many different types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety, social anxiety, specific phobias, and more


Anxiety disorders can develop for a number of reasons, including genetics, brain chemistry, and life events


According to the WHO, 1 in 13 people around the world suffer from anxiety


Only about 1/3 of those suffering receive treatment


About 8% of children and teenagers experience an anxiety disorder


Those suffering from anxiety disorders are not alone

Treatment Options


Psychotherapy is also called "talk therapy" and means psychological counseling.

Typical psychotherapy involves working with a professional therapist, nurse practitioner, psychologist or psychiatrist to reduce your anxiety symptoms.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most effective form of psychotherapy for anxiety disorders. This is a short term treatment that teaches patients skills on how to cope with any symptoms, and results in the return to every day activities including the ones that were avoided due to the anxiety.


Medication may be prescribed to patients with anxiety disorders in order to relieve symptoms.

Anxiety medications include:

Certain antidepressants 
Buspirone which is an anti-anxiety medication 
Benzodiazepines, or beta blockers which are sedatives.


These medications are for short-term relief of anxiety symptoms and are not intended to be used long term.
