FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal response to certain life events, but excessive, ongoing worry or fear can indicate the presence of an anxiety disorder. This common mental health condition affects an estimated 40 million adults and 13 million adolescents in the United States. Anxiety can have a significant, negative impact on your ability to perform everyday tasks, your personal relationships, and your physical health.

Anxiety is a condition that can arise on its own or in response to difficulty caused by an existing condition, such as depression or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

There are many types of anxiety disorders, including:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Phobias
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

Symptoms vary depending on the type of anxiety disorder, but most types of anxiety share the following symptoms:

  • Constant, intrusive worry, nervousness, or fear
  • Difficulty remaining calm
  • Poor concentration
  • Irritability
  • Restlessness
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Increased heart rate
  • Shortness of breath
  • Trembling, sweating, or muscle weakness
  • Digestive issues

Because additional mental health conditions frequently co-occur with anxiety, it’s essential to have an assessment by a trained and experienced mental health provider for an accurate diagnosis.

If you or your child is experiencing anxiety symptoms, the skilled clinicians at Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic perform a comprehensive evaluation using evidence-based assessment tools. When this assessment is complete, your expert recommends the best possible treatment options to relieve your symptoms and help you regain control over your life.

Because anxiety manifests differently in every patient and often occurs along with other disorders, a personalized, multidisciplinary treatment plan is the best solution to address the condition. The experienced clinicians at Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic work with patients and families to design customized treatment plans that meet the unique needs of the individual.

Your personalized treatment plan may include:

  • Psychotherapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) 
  • Family therapy
  • Neurofeedback
  • Biofeedback
  • Neurovisual training

The team is made up of experts in a variety of neuropsychological specialties who collaborate effectively to offer coordinated care for comprehensive treatment of anxiety disorders.
