Anxiety Disorders


Anxiety Disorders are the most common psychological disorders in the U.S. with 19.1 million (13.3%) of the adult population (ages 18-54) affected. This number increases when you factor in the high number of adults over the age of 54 who suffer from anxiety disorders.


Anxiety Disorders include:


  • Panic Disorder

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Phobias (e.g., snakes, heights, flying)

  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder


All Anxiety Disorders can cause overwhelming and persistent anxiety, fear, and interfere with daily living.

Fortunately, the vast majority of those with an Anxiety Disorder can be helped through a combination of therapy and medications, with medications offering the most immediate relief and therapy providing skills for long-term management.


Anxiety Disorders often include symptoms such as the following:


  • Restlessness, feeling “keyed up” or “on edge”

  • Becoming easily fatigued

  • Trouble concentrating (or mind “going blank”)

  • Irritability

  • Muscle tension, aches, or soreness

  • Trouble falling or staying asleep, or unsatisfying sleep

  • Excessive worry or obsessions

  • Heart racing

  • Trembling


Women are 2 times as likely to be affected than men. Additionally, people with Anxiety Disorders often suffer from other mental health problems, such as depression and alcohol or drug abuse.

Therapeutic care for your specific needs



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


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


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


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.
