Anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental health issues that patients face and impact thousands of people throughout the United States. Often confused with other mental health disorders, anxiety disorders can take a serious toll on a person’s life and well-being. If you think that you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder, it’s important to get help as soon as possible. At CNSL, our anxiety therapists will work with you to address your anxiety head-on. Call today to learn more.
Anxiety disorders generally involve intense and persistent worry about everyday events. Someone with an anxiety disorder may experience feelings of intense panic, stress, or nervousness and may experience a panic attack or repeated panic attacks. There are different types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, which involves anxiety about everyday events; social anxiety disorder, or social phobia, which involves anxiety about social situations; separation anxiety disorder, in which a person suffers anxiety when separated from certain individuals (such as a child feeling excessive anxiety when separated from their parents); and multiple others.
If you are feeling unusually stressed or panicky, you should familiarize yourself with the symptoms of excessive anxiety. Some of the most common symptoms of anxiety disorders include:
Experiencing some level of anxiety, worry, and stress is perfectly normal—in fact, having some anxiety is even healthy. However, anxiety becomes worrisome when it becomes constant, uncontrollable, and begins to interfere with your work, relationships, or quality of life. For example, if you are unable to go to work or perform work at full capacity due to your anxiety, are repeatedly avoiding social events, or are struggling with substance abuse as a way of managing your anxiety, then you need to get help. It’s important to understand that sometimes anxiety can lead to depression, a serious mental health disorder.
If you believe you may have an anxiety disorder, working with a therapist can be vital to receiving the support you need. A therapist can help you to understand the root cause of your anxiety, determine if your symptoms indicate an anxiety disorder, and, importantly, assist you in developing coping skills to manage your feelings in healthy ways. Talk therapy (or psychotherapy) is a common and highly effective way to manage anxiety for many people. In some cases, medication or TMS therapy may also be recommended, and a qualified psychiatrist can help you determine which options are best for you.
With compassionate, professional intervention, you can once again enjoy day-to-day activities, engage in healthy relationships, and take control of your emotions and your behaviors.
Living with an anxiety disorder can make you feel like you’re alone, but it’s important to remember that anxiety is one of the most common mental health disorders challenging children and adults alike throughout the country. If you are suffering from an anxiety disorder, our anxiety therapists at CNSL can help. Our therapists are patient-focused and work with you to set achievable goals and take actionable steps to get there.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first stepped into Dr. Fareed’s office, but I can now say after over 30 visits, they have consistently been excellent. The office is very nice, beautiful and peaceful, welcoming and cozy. The staff are all friendly and empathetic, and they go above and beyond to help me with any issues or questions I have, including working with my insurance to get the needed approvals for my treatment. I appreciate Dr. Fareed’s patient explanation of transcranial magnetic stimulation treatments and his help with getting needed documentation for my employment records. The TMS tech,...

Always a good experience here.The front desk staff are wonderful and Dr. Howard is so easy to talk to. I recommend this office to so many friends looking for behavioral health services!
I’m finishing up my TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) sessions this week, and the entire experience has been wonderful. The process was not painful, perhaps slightly uncomfortable the first few minutes of my first session, but not too bad. They have a large TV loaded with Netflix and music, which according to studies, engaging with something that makes you happy can result in more positive results. Seinfeld and Arrested Development made for quite an effective treatment! I went from severe depression to remission by about the fourth week of treatment. Erin, the TMS technician, is a wonderfully friendly person, we shared...
