Therapy for Anxiety

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a natural response to stressful situations. It is the feeling of fear or apprehension of unknown outcomes. Getting nervous leading up to or during special events such as taking a test, public speaking, moving to a new place, or starting a new job, is completely normal.

Ordinary anxiety comes and goes, but does not get in the way of living a normal life.

The response becomes an anxiety disorder when it happens when there is no real threat or nerve-wrecking event to worry about. Anxiety disorders can create such interfering and debilitating fear that it gets in the way of living healthy and productive lives.

This type of anxiety can cause people to frequently quit their jobs, avoid social gatherings, end relationships, avoid hobbies they would normally enjoy, and in extreme cases even avoid leaving the house all together.
