Specializing in Anxiety Treatment, Depression and Couples Therapy
Anxiety describes a group of disorders that cause worry, nervousness, and fear. These feelings of anxiety interfere with everyday life and are out of proportion to the triggering object or event.
In some cases, people are unable to identify a trigger and feel anxious for what seems like no reason.
While mild anxiety can be expected in some situations, such as before an important presentation or meeting, persistent anxiety can interfere with a person's well-being. Our team will assist you in developing coping skills that will decrease signs and symptoms of anxiety and increase the quality of your daily life.
