ANXIETY DISORDERS

The high level of stress and rapid pace of life in New York can often uncover or worsen stress and anxiety. People seeking help for anxiety have often tried to manage on their own, but their anxiety has not improved and has led to persistent discomfort and disturbances in their life and routine.

Some people with anxiety experience constant worry, often about relationships, health, family, money, or work. This worry goes on every day, possibly all day.

In others, anxiety appears in the form of irritability or anger. It disrupts social activities and interferes with work, school, or family relationships.

Anxiety can also manifest as rumination, in which the same thoughts repeat themselves in the mind. Sometimes, anxiety can escalate and lead to anxiety “attacks” or panic.

Physical symptoms of anxiety can include the following:

  • muscle tension
  • fatigue
  • restlessness
  • difficulty sleeping
  • irritability
  • edginess
  • poor concentration
  • “shaking”
  • nausea
  • headaches

The good news is that anxiety responds very well to treatment.

The roots of anxiety can quickly be identified, understood, and changed. Several evidence-based therapies, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Panic-Focused Psychodynamic Therapy (PFPP) are specifically designed to alleviate anxiety.

Medication, when necessary, is highly effective in reducing the physical and psychological burdens of anxiety. It can also lead to total resolution of panic attacks.
