Anxiety, whether it takes the form of social anxiety, or general anxiety, can be socially and professionally debilitating. Thankfully, anxiety is also extremely treatable.

As a counselor specializing in Anxiety in Orlando and Longwood, I help those suffering from anxiety: from general life-stress to full-blown anxiety disorders.

Common Symptoms of Anxiety

  • your mind races, you are constantly worrying about things
  • you are anxious much of the time and are unable to relax
  • you feel restless and agitated
  • you suffer from panic attacks
  • you are hard on yourself and are plagued with self-critical thoughts
  • you are unable to get a restful night’s sleep
  • you have chronic muscle tension in your neck, back, or shoulders

If you suffer from any of the above, the good news is that my Orlando anxiety counseling may help.

Anxiety Can Be Effectively Treated Through Therapy

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 older adults who suffer from anxiety disorders. According to the “Economic Burden of Anxiety Disorders”, a study commissioned by the ADAA and based on data gathered by the association and published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, anxiety disorders cost the U.S. more than $42 billion a year, almost one-third of the $148 billion total mental health bill for the U.S. People with Anxiety Disorders are three-to-five times more likely to go to the doctor and six times more likely to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders than non-sufferers.

The Five Anxiety Disorders include:

  • Panic Disorder

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

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

  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

All five 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 with the right professional care. Most experts agree that anxiety disorders are caused by a combination of both biological and environmental factors. Individual psychotherapy can help individuals learn coping skills to manage their anxiety. Cognitive-Behavioral therapy has been found to be effective in the treatment of many anxiety disorders. Additionally, some individuals may benefit from medication therapy in combination with psychotherapy. 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

As an Orlando counselor who specializes in treating anxiety, I am trained in using specific tools that help provide relief to your anxiety disorder.
