The COVID-19 pandemic is associated with an increase in individuals experiencing mental health burdens and challenges. People are feeling more isolated, lonely, a lack of belonging, and like a burden.

Stress and anxiety disorders are, in fact, the most common mental health issue in the United States, affecting 40 million adults aged 18 and older. Unfortunately, only one-third of adults who suffer with anxiety receive treatment.

Additionally, 80 percent of youth and adolescents experience stress and anxiety disorders, according to the Child Mind Institute’s Children’s Mental Health Report. Sixty percent of those with diagnosable stress, anxiety, and depression are not getting treatment.

When stress and anxiety become unmanageable, all areas of life – work, social, school and family – become more difficult. This leads to negative thinking, which often perpetuates the cycle of anxiety. Without treatment, a large percentage of adults and children will continue to suffer silently.

Stress and anxiety disorders are highly treatable.

You don’t have to live in a perpetual state of worry.

We utilize evidence-based practices, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness, informed care, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). These modalities can be very effective at treating stress and anxiety disorders in adults and children.

We offer treatment for the following stress and anxiety disorders:

  • Panic disorder
  • Social anxiety disorder (SAD)
  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
  • Eating disorders
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Specific phobias or fear
  • Other specified/unspecified anxiety disorder

About OCD

Many of those who suffer with anxiety experience intense thought patterns. Examples of such thought patterns include:

  • Obsessions: Recurrent and persistent thoughts, ideas, and beliefs that simply won’t go away and cause distressing emotions.
  • Compulsions: Ritualized actions that help alleviate an individual’s obsessive thinking. With OCD, compulsions are often directly related to a distressing thought.
  • Obsessions without compulsions: Sometimes an individual may experience an obsession but not have a compulsion. Instead, they may constantly fear a person or situation. You fear something will go badly or you won’t be in control.
