Anxiety & Related Disorders

Develop a new relationship with your worry

Learn how to lean in and let go

Anxiety is a part of life! Most people get anxious before a big performance or on a date with someone new. However, when that anxiety becomes extreme, it may be time to seek help. Below you can find further information about common anxiety disorders as well as phobias. When treating these disorders we utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, including Exposure Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. For children with anxiety disorders who are too young to engage in individual treatment and/or unwilling, we offer parent training and consultation.

Generalized Anxiety

Generalized Anxiety is characterized as excessive worry and anxiety about everyday situations. Common themes in generalized anxiety includes worry about finances, family life, health and more. When those common worries begin to impact your life, it may be time to consider therapy.

Separation Anxiety

Separation Anxiety is commonly found in babies and toddlers and is considered a typical developmental phase. However, when the anxiety from separation from a loved one is extreme and results in constant clinging, tantrums, and excessive emotions that are not typical for age, the child may have separation anxiety.

In addition to your child's individual treatment, our SPACE group can help equip you as a parent with the skills needed to best support your child's fear-based symptoms.

Social Anxiety

Social Anxiety is more than just being "shy" or an "introvert". Social Anxiety can interfere with daily life, causing little to no social or romantic relationship. Often a patient with Social Anxiety will go through extreme measures to avoid the social situation, or endure the unavoidable with much distress. Social Anxiety can look very different depending on age. In young children, social anxiety can cause a child to have a temper tantrum, cling to their parent, or refuse to speak.

Specific Phobias

Specific Phobias are considered extreme fears of specific places, objects or situations that cause someone great distress if made to face this fear. Common phobias include certain animals or insects, heights, small spaces, or the dark! I utilize Exposure Therapy when treating someone with a phobia which involves gradually assisting the patient to face that fear through exposure tasks.
