Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety was meant to focus our attention, and provide just enough discomfort to guide productive behavior.

For many, however, anxiety disorders rather that organizes our mental life, and causes daily suffering and dysfunction. In such cases, application of treatment can be helpful. Patients presenting with anxiety can expect:

1. A comprehensive assessment of the biological, social, and psychological factors involved in the case.

2. Review of relevant records (best to bring them with you)!

3. Collaborative development of a treatment plan that may include:

A: Use of medications where appropriate.

B: Discussion of psychological issues relevant to the case.

C: Referral for consistent psychotherapy where appropriate, usually to another professional.

D: Behavioral interventions, with a focus on lifestyle and habits.

E: Other treatments such as dietary supplements, light therapies, or referral to more intensive treatment programs.

Everyone deserves the best treatments with the best evidence, and in keeping with that, we often start with a focus on medications and referral for psychotherapy. In the fullness of time, however, many different types of treatment can be explored. Over time a holistic plan, accounting for the whole person, will be developed
