Anxiety Disorders Psychologist in New York City
Unlike the mild anxiety one might feel before a stressful event like speaking in public, anxiety disorders can last months and worsen if left untreated. Anxiety disorders affect nearly 40 million American adults each year and are often accompanied by substance abuse, eating disorders or other mental illnesses. Anxiety disorders pervade everyday life, making it difficult to function.
Although there are several different types of anxiety disorders, at the core of all the symptoms is excessive, irrational fear and dread.
Anxiety disorders include:
- Panic Disorder
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Social Anxiety Disorder
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder
