Anxiety Treatment

Diagnosis, Treatment, & Management of Anxiety in Adults
40 million Americans have anxiety, so know that you’re not alone.

Anxiety can manifest in many forms, requiring a personalized treatment approach. Understanding the type of anxiety you are experiencing can help you get the care that is right for you.  By nature, seeking treatment for adult anxiety can be anxiety inducing in itself, leading many individuals to forgo meeting with a Houston psychiatrist.   Our practice is centered around evidence based care and creates a supportive and comfortable environment for your care.

What is Anxiety?

Often anxiety presents as excessively worrying about things out of your control. Many patients do not even realize they have anxiety as it has been an issue most of their lives they assumed was “normal” for everyone.  In some cases you may not know what you are worried about but experience an ongoing sense of uneasiness. Anxiety can also present in different forms such as sudden onset of panic attacks, PTSD, OCD or social anxiety.

Everyone experiences symptoms of anxiety and stress from time to time. It is important to differentiate what is a normal anxious response to a stressful situation from what is treatable anxiety. 

Many people with anxiety often simply worry about the worst case scenarios, overthink everyday decisions or experience an ongoing sense of uneasiness.  This often puts you feeling  constantly on edge and difficulty with coping with daily life stressors and overwhelmed or unusually irritable.
