Anxiety disorders are complex mental health conditions often triggered by stress. The term ‘anxiety disorder’ refers to a range of psychiatric disorders that can cause overwhelming feelings of fear, worry, and physical symptoms such as heart palpitations, trembling, and nausea. Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is the most common type of anxiety disorder in the U.S., affecting millions of people. Did you know that anxiety is the most prevalent mental illness in America? It affects about 18 percent of adults, but only a third of those seek treatment, putting their mental health at risk.
If you are experiencing anxiety symptoms such as panic, trembling, nausea, dizziness, or fear of dying, you should consult a doctor. Symptoms lasting for over six months may indicate a diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder or panic disorder. Anxiety disorder should be treated to prevent it from worsening or leading to depression.
What should I expect from anxiety disorder treatment?
Your therapist will work with you to identify the triggers of your apprehension, which may include stress, previous trauma, lifestyle habits, or underlying neurological conditions. Based on the cause of your nervousness, a treatment plan will be designed to help manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life. Your treatment may include psychotherapy, medications, cognitive-behavioral therapy, or deep brain stimulation.
At Allegiance Mental Health & Wellness Services, we offer individual therapy to help those who are struggling with this condition. Our highly trained therapists provide evidence-based treatments to help individuals manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life. We understand that apprehension can be a difficult condition to live with, and we are committed to providing compassionate care to all of our patients.
Individual therapy is a personalized approach to treatment that allows patients to work one-on-one with a therapist to identify and address the underlying causes of their anxiety. Our therapists use a range of evidence-based techniques, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based therapy, and exposure therapy, to help patients manage their symptoms and develop healthy coping mechanisms.
Individual therapy is suitable for anyone who is experiencing symptoms of anxiety, regardless of the severity of their condition. It is especially useful for those who are struggling to manage their symptoms on their own or have tried other treatments without success.
