Treatment Anxiety

Social Anxiety

 

Like it sounds, social anxiety is a fear of any situation that requires social contact with other people.   This isn’t limited to what we usually consider “social” and sometimes the most devastating aspects of this condition is how it limits people in their careers.  People with social anxiety avoid situations that require seeing people to the point where they can decline promotions or just not do the things necessary to excel at their job because it involves interacting with people.  Even people who can overcome the resistance can be miserable as they spend all of the their time anticipating the things they know they are going to have to do.  Once again, the good news is that we have treatments that work, both short-term options that can provide immediately relief as well as more permanent solutions. 

Panic Attacks

Panic attacks are distinct periods of intense anxiety with both physical and psychological components that come out of the blue and last 30 to 40 minutes.  Once someone has a panic attack they can become worried about having more and will often adjust their behavior to avoid getting caught in a situation where having a panic attack would be particularly difficult or embarrassing. 

General Anxiety

 

As it sounds, general anxiety is a state where the person suffering has a baseline level of anxiety just about all the time.  It can be related to a particular issue but more often is a feeling that attaches to many different aspects of life.  Often the topics are things that we might expect to cause anxiety but the anxiety is out of proportion with the issue and causes much more distress than is warranted.

 

Phobias

These are fears related to specific situations or things.  People can have phobias to activities like fear of flying, situations like fear of being in large crowds, or objects, like fear of snakes.

 

Fear of public speaking

 

This is often not understood as a kind of anxiety but it has all the familiar aspects of any anxiety condition and is just as amenable to treatment.

DEPRESSION

Depression is a common presenting problem, probably the most common, but it can take many forms...

ANXIETY

Anxiety is another common reason people end up in my office and again it can take many different forms...

BIPOLAR DISORDER

A misunderstood condition is Bipolar Disorder, which I also have a lot of experience treating...

ADULT ADHD/ADD

The understanding of various psychiatric disorders is something that has evolved over the history of the field...

Other conditions I have experience with include Sleep problems.

OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), Co-occurring Substance Abuse Disorders.

I also work with people interested in coming off their medications making sure to do this in a safe and comfortable way.

Finally, though many of my patients come to me initially for device about medications, many end up seeing me for weekly therapy because my holistic approach that includes advice about all aspects of life really resonates with them.

if your issue is something you don´t see listed, please feel free to contact my office and describe your problem. It may be something that I've seen before and can help you with, but if it isn't, I'll offer some ideas on what you might try next.
