Anxiety Disorders are the most common mental health issue in the United States. Approximately 18% of adults experience anxiety disorders. Anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and phobias. It is also common for people to experience both depression and anxiety.
Anxiety differs from normal feelings of nervousness. Symptoms can include excessive worrying, painful intrusive memories, overwhelming feelings of panic and fear, recurring nightmares, and even physical symptoms such as nausea, shortness of breath, and restlessness.
Therapy can help reduce anxiety, consequently improving quality of life. We can help you change the thoughts and behaviors associated with anxiety.
About 8 million Americans, men and women, are estimated to have an eating disorder. Eating disorders have one of the highest mortality rates of any mental illness. They can come in several forms, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and body dysmorphia.
Common symptoms of people with an eating disorder are distorted body image, extremely restricted eating, a relentless pursuit of thinness and an unwillingness to maintain a healthy weight, as well as cycling through binge eating and purging. Purging may involve self-induced vomiting, excessive use of diuretics, and/or excessive amounts of exercise. Eating disorders can affect all areas of life, and can be fatal.
Therapy can aid in recognizing and challenging the negative cycles of eating disorders. We can provide assistance to help you establish healthier thoughts and behaviors.
