What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is worry that goes beyond a normal reaction to stress. If your anxiety interferes with your life, or is excessive, you may benefit from counseling to alleviate your anxiety and help you to enjoy life more fully.

There are many types of anxiety disorders, including Generalized Anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Disorder (panic attacks), Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and phobias.

Treatment has been proven to be very effective for anxiety disorders and can include relaxation and breathing techniques, and other cognitive-behavioral treatments. Please also see this link to the National Institute of Mental Health for a summary on anxiety:
