Types of Anxiety
There are several types of anxiety, including social anxiety, separation anxiety, panic, agoraphobia, and generalized anxiety, to name a few. I specialize in working with generalized anxiety, social/performance anxiety, and the anxiety that often accompanies depression.
Generalized anxiety (GAD) involves persistent, excessive, and unrealistic worries about everyday things, on most days for at least six months. If you have GAD, you probably often expect the worst to happen, even when there is no apparent reason for concern. You may worry constantly about money, health, family, work, or other things in your life. Some other symptoms include restlessness, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, irritability, muscle tension, and problems sleeping.
You may feel like you don't know how to stop the worry, and that it feels out of your control. Effective treatment is available. There is hope and you can get better.
