What is Anxiety?
A state of apprehension and psychic tension occurring in some forms of mental disorder.
The word anxiety comes from the Latin word, anxius, meaning a condition of agitation and distress. Anxiety can be distinguished from fear and stress in several ways and it is important that you understand the differences. We are here to help you understand those differences.
Anxiety can appear in different forms and at different levels of intensity.
Anxiety affects your whole being. It is a physiological, behavioral, and psychological reaction all at once. The fact that anxiety can affect you on all of those levels has important implications for your recovery. A complete program of recovery for an anxiety disorder must intervene at all three levels.
Anxiety is an inevitable part of contemporary life. If you feel you are experiencing anxiety, please contact our office as we are here to assist you in developing a resolution to this condition.
