Experts in Treating Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety is part of everyday life. But for some, it becomes more than just a temporary occurrence, or becomes worse over time, turning into severe anxiety and interfering with daily life, work, school, and relationships. Anxiety can be hereditary, but for the most part, there's no explanation as to why some people have it and some don't. It's important to know what to look for to know if treatment may be necessary. Symptoms of severe anxiety may include:

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Frequent feelings of panic, fear, worry

  • Shortness of breath

  • Heart palpitations

  • Difficulty staying calm

  • Nausea

  • Tension in the body or muscles

  • Dizziness

  • Extreme temperatures in hands or feet

  • Loss of feeling in hands or feet

  • Difficulty maintaining relationships

While your symptoms will present in a way unique to you, many of our residents fall into the following diagnostic categories:

  • Young adults dealing with the transition to college or a career

  • Difficulties related to parenting

  • Marital problems

  • Executives and leaders for whom stress becomes crippling

  • Older adults adjusting to retirement
